      You are the HR Director of a food processing company. Due to health concerns of a member of your family, you have decided to take a six-month leave of absence from your position. You are supposed to supervise several HR projects that are about to begin. The CEO has instructed you to compile a detailed portfolio of these projects so that your temporary replacement will be prepared to take over the supervision of these projects during the next six months. The included projects are:

    • Recruitment Branding Project – revising current recruitment webpage to attract Millennial applicants, to include proposed metrics that will assess the impact of the new webpage on successfully hiring desired human capital.
