For your final project, you will assess the organizational problem below and propose socially responsible solutions for your client. Part I of this project entails you reviewing the problem and submitting a draft of your initial thoughts for review.
Your client has older workers that have been with the company for many years, are highly valued and they volunteer in the community to help the homeless on a monthly basis. The company has opened a new division and have many millennial workers that communicate differently from the older workers and volunteer for other causes that they feel are important like LGBTQ fundraisers. There have been complaints from both sides on communication and causes supported, and production has decreased. As a consultant and using what you have learned from human development, answer the following questions thoroughly:
- How would you assess the situation? (list the steps you would take in assessing the situation)
- How would you bring the two age groups together and start a conversation about the situation?
- What would be your final socially responsible recommendations to management/the client in resolving the situation?
Be sure to be thorough, use citations from the weekly readings and any other sources you find applicable.
