Employee Development Issues Individual Report

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Employee Development Issues Individual Report 1 Introduction The following report has been based on a case study about a small plastics manufacturing company called William Beckett & Co (plastics) Ltd. In the case study it sets out a rough guide about the company like how it all began, its plans for the future and what is happening at present. So my job is to identify certain areas of the company and explain what I believe should be done to rectify the situation and improve this company in terms of staff morale, staff turnover, productivity and efficiency of the company. Then to back up my arguments I shall use a range of sources like academic books and journals to show example of what can happen or change within a company if my recommendations are implemented. 2 The problems From the case study I have picked out several areas and examples of what I believe is wrong with the company and how it is managed. The following areas that I have chosen as examples of what is wrong with the company are as follows: * The rapid expansion of the company, which has put the management of the company under increased pressure. ...read more.

The problems that come with this situation will be a fall in productivity and employees redefining their jobs which will cause confusion amongst the staff and management about who is responsible for what and who should be doing what. The solutions for this would be to go back and look at the employee's job specification and remind them about what their role is and what their responsibilities are. The directors should also think about job rotation at William Beckett & Co, as this would mean that employees will not become so bored and disgruntled with their own jobs and slip into these comfort zones and redefine their jobs to suit them. Job rotation is a good way of making the employees jobs a little more flexible, they won't be stuck on the same repetitive jobs day in day out. This in theory has a positive affect on most organisations as "variety is the spice of life". It could be seen as a new challenge to some of the employees which again is also known to motivate most staff. This is a simple and clear solution to a problem that can have a large implication on a company such as William Beckett & Co. ...read more.

Conclusion

The lower level staff need new training as they will not be able to work effectively enough with the new technologies as they will not be familiar with it compared to the old equipment they were familiar with. The areas that they will need to be trained on are their team working abilities, stress and pressure courses, good communication and motivation skills and theories. This should help the employees to work together as a team which will help morale and productivity as a team that are working together and are happy will be a great asset to the company. 3 Conclusion So in conclusion if all my recommendations are followed then I believe that the following things will happen at William Beckett & Co: * The higher level of management will be under far less pressure. * The company will be able to expand more rapidly and continue its impressive level of sales. * Management and staff have necessary training which will mean greater staff and manager relationships. * The employees in the comfort zones will be eliminated. * The company should be more flexible if they have the appropriate training. This should result in the company being more productive and efficient, the staff becoming more flexible and motivated which in short make the company a lot more efficient, profitable and secure for the future. ...read more.
