As part of the requirements for the Final Project, you construct an abstract and
introduction. Using the information provided, consider the necessary information
for an abstract and introduction.
Abstract
The abstract is a concise, well-developed paragraph that highlights the purpose and key
points of your paper. An abstract should be no more than one page, double-spaced,
with the first sentence left-justified. An abstract is not an evaluation; rather, it is a report
of relevant theoretical foundations and conceptual frameworks in your paper. In
addition, the abstract provides your empirical review of the issue or topic and a
concluding statement for future research.
Include in the Abstract Assignment:
•
•
•
•
•
A brief statement about the theoretical foundations/conceptual frameworks as
appropriate
A brief summary of your empirical review
A brief description about the gap(s) in research of personnel psychology you
selected
A summary of your research questions and hypotheses
A concluding statement on the implications for future research and for positive
social change
Introduction Section
Background
The introduction clearly identifies the specific topic or issue. The introduction also
provides a statement of purpose and addresses goals for the paper. In developing your
introduction, consider the following questions: Why is the topic you selected important?
How does the topic or issue relate to previous research and/or topics in the field? How
does your presentation of the topic or issue differ from previous research and/or topics?
How might your topic or issue relate to previous theories or hypotheses?
Include in the Assignment Introduction:
•
•
•
•
A description of the topic of the study and why the topic is important
A brief summary of the theoretical and empirical literature related to the study
topic
A description about the gap(s) in research of personnel psychology and why it is
important
An explanation of potential social implications of your research

In Week 11, you submit a literature review for your Final Project. You may benefit
from reviewing the media on literature reviews in Week 6.
Literature Search Strategy
After you have introduced the topic or issue, the next section incorporates a search on
relevant literature in the field. With a literature search strategy, discuss exactly how you
conducted your search of the literature. That is, very specifically, describe your search
strategy. What keywords did you use to conduct your search? What databases did you
search? What additional methods did you use to uncover relevant articles, books, et
cetera? (For example, did you examine the reference section of the articles you located
for additional articles?)
A literature search strategy includes:
•
•
•
•
A description of accessed library databases and search engines used
A description of key search terms and combinations of search terms (with more
detailed search terms located in an appendix if appropriate)
A description of the scope of literature review (years searched, types of literature
and sources searched, including seminal and current peer-reviewed)
A description of additional search methods in cases where there is limited current
research, dissertations, conference proceedings, etc.
Literature Review
Following your literature search, you present a synthesis of peer-reviewed, scholarly
literature in a literature review. In presenting relevant, scholarly literature, you annotate
each resource to include pertinent theoretical and empirical findings, methodology,
and/or research disparities relating to your topic or issue.
A literature review includes:
•
•
•
•
A discussion of relevant theories that form the basis for your literature review
A description of major theoretical propositions and/or major hypotheses of those
theories
A review of the literature that describes studies related to the leadership topic
and/or theory of your choosing
A review and synthesis of studies related to the key independent, dependent,
and covariate variables to produce a description and explanation of what is
known about the variables, what is controversial (i.e., mixed findings by
researchers), and what remains to be studied

Problem Statement
•
•
•
•
State the research problem.
Provide evidence of consensus that the problem is current, relevant, and
significant to the discipline.
Frame the problem in a way that builds upon or counters previous research
findings focusing primarily on research conducted in the last 5 years.
Address a meaningful gap in the current research literature.
Purpose of the Study
•
Provide a concise statement that serves as the connection between the problem
being addressed and the focus of the study and contains:
o The research paradigm (quantitative/qualitative/mixed) and specific
design/tradition within paradigm
o The study intent (such as describe, compare, correlate, explore, develop,
etc.)
o The independent, dependent, and covariate variables (quantitative
studies) or concept/phenomenon (qualitative studies)
Research Question(s) and Hypotheses
•
•
•
•
State the research questions.
State what constructs you might measure and how you might measure them.
State the hypotheses by using appropriate population parameters and statistical
notation. (Use of an equation editor makes typing hypotheses easy.)
For quantitative studies, state the null and alternative hypotheses that identify the
independent and dependent variables being studied and the association being
tested.

Problem statement
The covid19 pandemic has caused most organizations across the globe to adopt new
ways of doing things. A notable change that organizations embraced was the concept of
remote working. Specifically, the pandemic disrupted the usual way of working on company
premises, thus forcing organizations to allow employees to work from home. Organizations
have continued to embrace this concept even after measures intended to prevent the spread of
covid19, such as the stay-at-home orders, have been lifted (van Zoonen et al., 2021).
A problem that has become evident as remote working becomes the new normal is
how organizations can use job analysis to gain or maintain their competitive edge in the
market. In particular, there is a need for changes in how companies conduct job analysis as
they seek to identify factors that influence employees’ satisfaction levels in their remote
working environments (Bieńkowska et al., 2022). Therefore, the issue that will be the focus
of this study is how organizations can leverage job analysis to gain a competitive edge even
as they embrace the concept of remote working.

Job Analysis as a Strategic Tool for Gaining a Competitive Advantage
Every organization in the current market changes and modern improvement in
technology need to undertake a job analysis of its workers and to establish and understand areas
that need improvement. A well-designed job analysis can help an organization to solve problems
improve communication and create an environment where expectations are clear and future
problems are addressed appropriately. Any company that targets to be the best in the market
need it workers to be motivated so that they can perform their duties efficiently. But the only
way company can know the problems employees are undergoing is by involving them. Human
resources department is mandated to ensuring that the workers are satisfied and there rights
respect. A job analysis is similar to an internal survey by management. Job analysis lays a
foundation for an institution to gain a competitive advantage by identifying current trends in
training for its workers and the new staff that it intends to hire in future (Cronshaw, 1998).
This research paper will be establishing the need for companies to have job analysis
every six months so that they can appraise and reward employees who are hardworking, skilled,
and committed. Job analysis is the most commonly used methods for rewarding employees.
Therefore, the researcher will be looking into various forms and practices, the challenges facing
employees, advantages, and benefits associated with undertaking this process. The researcher
will look into multiple reasons given by companies that do not conduct the activity. The study
will also compare the cost incurred after conducting the activity.
The research will use the descriptive method; the sample population will be obtained
from top ten companies in the United States. The researcher will use qualitative data method and
use secondary data since the idea behind the study is to understand the importance of job analysis
in improving a company’s competitive advantage in the United States.
