Problem:

One of your new contacts from the teambuilding seminar has called you for help. She is the Human Resource Manager of a larger manufacturing company. Her division is divided into 7 departments and each department is dependent on the other for success.

In today's morning production meeting, the superintendents expressed much concern over low product quality. Additionally, the plant manager announced this week that corporate sales have increased production goals 50 percent for the next two quarters. Production demands have been high and the equipment has been running non-stop for several months.

Over the past few months she has noticed an increase in absenteeism from several of the departments. Resignations are on the rise. The division staffing goals are at an all time low, which means that since the production goals have increased, so will overtime. Employee motivation has been slowly decreasing and this is having a negative impact on employee performance.

Your friend has outlined several concerns. Your assignment is to help her follow the diagnostic process and identify at least four of those concerns. Help her create strategies that HRM could use to help change the present culture.

Send your friend an e-mail on the concerns and diagnosis you have highlighted and the strategies that you recommend for changing morale and quality of the product.

I have chosen to talk about these issues:
1.) an increase in absenteeism from several departments
2.) resignations are on the rise
3.) employee motivation has been slowly decreasing
4.) there is a negative impact on employee performance

I began by talking about moving to a participatory style management...but I am stuck.
