4. Staffing Management Staff Acquisition: The project staff will consist entirely of internal resources. The Project Manager will negotiate with Functional Managers in order to identify and assign resources in accordance with the project organizational structure. All resources must be approved by the appropriate Functional Manager before the resource may begin any project work. Training: Because of the complex instrumentation and computer-controlled equipment now in use, educational requirements are increasing as treatment plants become more complex to meet new water quality standards and pollution control regulations. Water and wastewater treatment plant operators in some large cities and towns may have to pass civil service tests on general knowledge and mechanical aptitude. Trainees are trained by skilled, experienced operators. Trainees first do routine tasks such as writing down meter readings, taking samples of water or wastewater and sludge, and do simple upkeep and repair work on pumps, motors, and valves. Large water and wastewater treatment plants have a more formal training program with classroom or self-paced study programs. Performance Reviews: The PM will review each team member’s assigned work activities at the onset of the project and communicate all expectations of work to be performed. The PM will then evaluate each team member throughout the project to evaluate their performance and how effectively they are completing their assigned work. Prior to releasing project resources, the PM will meet with the appropriate Functional Manager and provide feedback on employee project performance. The Functional Managers will then perform a formal performance review on each team member. Recognition and Rewards: Although the scope of this project does not allow for ample time to provide cross-training or potential for monetary rewards there is several planned recognition and reward items for project team members. 

Upon successful completion of the Project, a party will be held to celebrate the success of each team member with the team members’ families present.

Upon successful completion of the project, any team member who satisfactorily completed all assigned work packages on time will receive a certificate of thanks from the CEO.

Team members who successfully complete all of their assigned tasks will have their photo taken for inclusion in the company newsletter.
