Read the case given below and answer the questions:
the owner and manager of a company with ten employees, has hired you to take
over the HRM function so she can focus on other areas of her business. During
your first two weeks, you find out that the company has been greatly affected
by the up economy and is expected to experience overall revenue growth by 10
percent over the next three years, with some quarters seeing growth as high as
30 percent. However, five of the ten workers are expected to retire within
three years. These workers have been with the organization since the beginning
and provide a unique historical perspective of the company. The other five
workers are of diverse ages.
addition to these changes, Halima believes they may be able to save costs by
allowing employees to telecommute one to two days per week. She has some
concerns about productivity if she allows employees to work from home. Despite
these concerns, Halima has even considered closing down the physical office and
making her company a virtual organization, but she wonders how such a major
change will affect the ability to communicate and worker motivation.
shares with you her thoughts about the costs of health care on the
organization. She has considered cutting benefits entirely and having her
employees work for her on a contract basis, instead of being full-time
employees. She isn’t sure if this would be a good choice.
schedules a meeting with you to discuss some of her thoughts. To prepare for
the meeting, you perform research so you can impress your new boss with
