When your physical retail chain organization merged two years ago with a firm that specializes in online apparel retailing, your company had to hire 150 employees to keep up with growth. This brought your employee count to 250. Up until the merger your company paid top market rate, but once the merger took place the company adopted the merging company’s plan where pay was based 20% below market value.

Your boss has asked you to come up with at least six sources useful for the top managers in your organization to learn about these processes. See below, write a 3 page essay on how you will incorporate the most effective sources of information possible, giving special attention to the quality of sources utilized for the purpose intended.
