  1. Is money the only motivational factor?

    For example an employee may prefer to work on their own rather than in a friendly team. In order to have good motivation employees needs have to be established. This is shown in how lack of motivation equals reduced effort and lack of commitment. An example of how employee's needs could be satisfied is through involving them in discussions so that they feel recognised and wanted. A business could also set up discussions with management about goals and working practises which would make employees feel their opion counts and also that their contribution is valuable. In the long term this may result in the employee being willing to work longer hours or take responsibility.

  7. Critically assess the reliability of the various methods that could be used to gauge a candidate's personality during the recruitment process.

    The concept behind these tests states that environmental and social factors are seen as being negligible; instead a person's personality is viewed as being genetically based which would render it less susceptible to change. Various psychologists have proposed a number of different models to gauge a person's personality. These vary primarily in the number of factors that are taken into account. Popular among tests that are designed along the nomothetic approach are Cattel's sixteen personality factor (16 PF) test, Eycenck's personality inventory (EPI), Goldberg's five factor model and the Myers-Briggs Type indicator (MBTI).

  14. What do you believe to be the primary moral wrong committed by discrimination? What do you see to be the primary moral justifications in favour of affirmative action? Based upon your position do you believe that affirmative action is justified? Why, or why not?

    The answer to this fundamental question is critical to answering additional questions regarding the essence and scope of discrimination. For example, is rational discrimination backed by good reasoning wrong? And is affirmative action, actually promotes equality or does positive discrimination in fact contradicts the notion and produce adverse results? The concept of discrimination mediates between moral and legal reasoning and is a subject that open grounds to many ambiguous and conflicting debates as it violates one of the fundamental ethical principles. Due to the boundless amounts of explanations for the existence of discrimination, it is too broad in scope for this essay to analyse in the depth required.
