Christian Worldview in Strategic HR and Employment Law Assignment
Christian Worldview in Strategic HR and Employment Law Assignment
Write a 1,500-word paper that applies,
reflects, and synthesizes the following questions:

1. What
does Keller mean when he claims that work is intended for both “cultivation”
and for “service?” Why are both purposes critical for us to consider as
Christian business practitioners and academics?
Especially relative to HR?
2. Hardy
provides a quote from the Apocrypha (Ecclesiaticus or Sirach 38:34, NOT
canonized as part of the protestant Bible) as introductory to his book, and the
title of his book is pulled directly from this quote. How does this quote,
along with Genesis 1:27-28 from the protestant Bible, provoke Christian worldview
thinking regarding HR as a key focus for any business organization?
3. Analyze
and assess 2 or 3 differences between a traditional/administrative view of HR
and a contemporary/strategic view of HR. How does Christian worldview thinking
apply here?
4. Delineate
3 or 4 key ways that Equal Employment Opportunity and Labor/Union Management
statutes (Valentine chapters 3 and 15) inform HR practice. How does Christian worldview illumine both the
inherent “righteousness” of, and the pragmatic “necessity” of, EEO and
labor/Union Management statutes?

You must use the course texts as well as
articles from scholarly and practitioner journals. Be sure to use current APA

At least 1 citation from a related
trade/practitioner publication (e.g. Harvard Business Review, HR Magazine,
