2. You have been given a list of work duties to assign to your employees,
and you want to make sure that everyone is given a task that they can
complete successfully. What factors should you take into consideration
when deciding which employees are assigned which duties? How can you
effectively present each employee with their new responsibilities? Use
concepts presented to you in this unit along with outside research to
formulate you answers.

understand the personalities of your employees without wasting valuable
work time? Do you feel it is beneficial to consider the role of
personality or would you rather divide work evenly and set a list of
standards and deadlines for everyone to follow?
