This assignment is based on using peer-reviewed references from the UOP library to research current topics.
Prepare paper of approximately 1,500-2000 words on two current human resources issues in US healthcare:
Choose 2 current topics that affect the human resources (the people) or human resources policies (the internal policies that affect the people):
- Examples include: availability of workers, the aging workforce*, social media and employees, the effect of minimum wage on healthcare.
- Use your experience to identify other current topics.

In your paper:
- Provide an overview of the topic and perspective/information from each article,
- How the topic affects employees, and
- How it will affect the company and human resources policies and procedures
