I would like studies/ research details going back no more than 10years on the following topics: Total Reward, Leadership, and Recruitment and Selection. Send the summary of the study (a few lines), the location of the source (journal/ newspaper name, date, edition, etc. & webline if possible) For each of the topics look at aspects related to:
>> TOTAL REWARD: How salary is determined, bench marking salary, employee benefits, most common benefits, learning and development initiatives, most/ least liked benefits, fixed pay packages/ commission - which circumstances are these used. Also, which type of environments are most conducive to get people to do their best work. Looking at lighting, ergonomics, noise/ sound etc.
>> RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION: best/ worst techniques, length of time, most popular methods, how to recruit for potential, how to spot a liar, popular techniques used by innovative technology companies etc.
>> LEADERSHIP: most recent theories on leadership, how to manage junior staff, how to manage those more powerful/ influential than you (e.g. senior staff, stakeholders, shareholders/ equity holders), challenges of a leader - the best ways to cope, the different types of leaders etc.
Please gather research from credible sources: journals, newspapers, magazines, government reports etc. The research is to be focussed on data obtained from the Western world - Europe and Northern America. Use studies which have been cited the most or which are interesting and unique. Ideally, the person doing this study will have access to journals rather than just look at summaries via google scholar. I need to see the original source not summaries made by another person.
Create them in a list format on MS Excel, with each area having its own tab. I'd like at least 15 studies/findings on each of these 3 three areas.
