He concluded that whilst efficient higher level executives differ widely in their personalities, strengths, weaknesses, values and belief, they all have one thing in common: the generation of efficient and effective results.

This should be done without problems or conflict and the should always show loyalty to managers. The role of a union in an organisation of this perspective is often not encouraged as it can undermine authority and cause splits in the loyalties.

    'Nowhere is this more important than with an organisation's recruitment, selection and retention functions' (Compton et al, 2009, p9). A very important theory that builds on this approach is the Human Capital Theory, which, according to Kearns (2005) as cited by Armstrong (2006), regards employees as 'value adders, not overheads' (p30). Line managers need to take in account the candidate and their experience in carrying out the recruitment and selection process, in order to carry it out in an efficient and effective way.

  19. This report explores and explains the behaviour of the employees at Oticon, a hearing aid manufacturing company. Using relevant theories, this report also discusses about the consistency of the approach taken by the company for restructuring

    This dragged Oticon into serious financial problems in 1987. The management followed a status quo approach in managing the company, and they emphasised greatly on shareholders differences of opinion. The company structure with three functional areas lacked interaction. 'The most appropriate structure is dependent, therefore, upon the contingencies of the situation for each individual organisation'. -Mullins (2007, pp.564-566). This is familiar from the Oticon point of view, as the reasons are lack of innovation, ineffective management, complacency and the emergence of innovative competitors.

  20. Workplace Employment Relations

    Scarborough develops Reed's work further. Unlike traditional professionals he says they have not got a body of knowledge to draw upon, but instead have scarcity value. They are more dependent on employers because to create knowledge they must interact within the firm using its information and communications technology (ICT) networks. Lastly they are more instrumental than traditional professional workers, emphasising knowledge related to its commercial value rather than its intrinsic value (Alvesson 2004). Knowledge can be divided into tacit and explicit knowledge.

"They'll need to develop customized packages of cleaning solutions and systems -- not just a patchwork of tools and services -- which include products and processes that meet our clients' needs" (University of Phoenix, 2006).
