Case study 1: Grab a Widget and Get Paid for Employee Referrals
1. How does automating the employee referral process encourage referrals?
Those organizations with automated referral programs discussed the benefits of sourcing clients directly from the employee referral portal and tracking the referral payouts. Clients also spoke of recruiters who were once over-whelmed with manually tracking referrals now having their workload cut in half thanks to iCIMS. iCIMS’ referral functionality also encouraged employees to refer more candidates for jobs because it automated the process, providing them with a simple way to submit and track their individual referrals
Automating the employee-referral program to scan employees' LinkedIn, Facebook and Outlook contact lists in search of qualified job candidates is the next wave of recruitment. Lou Adler offers tips to manage the process and says mangers should encourage employees to proactively expand their connections.
2. What do you think some of the drawbacks of getting referrals from social network sites might be?
Although use of social networking is almost ubiquitous among people under 35 these days, it is still a bit untrustworthy when it comes to recruiting. It's one thing if you are using a business networking site like LinkedIn, as it is designed to only represent your professional life and circles. Although the lines are getting blurred, many people still divide their professional life from their personal life, so they would be apprehensive about responding to job recruitment on a primarily social site. Therefore, despite the wide net cast, your yield would be truncated by this cognitive gap in the consumer between work and play. Also, the people who do reply would be on average, more active on social media. This may be a good thing, but it could also be a warning sign of low productivity in the work world. While a…...

Disclosure and Employee Referrals

...circumstances in which violent behavior has been evident, employers may be obligated to release such information as part of a job reference and nondisclosure could render them liable should an that employee inflict harm on some third party. Weighing the implications of disclosure and nondisclosure can be helpful for employers when contemplating the course of action to take in times when the duty of disclosure is in question. The Human Resources department at Stuff-Mart has a valid concern for determining exactly what information they should provide about their three problem employees in employment references. Should they reveal the employees’ behavioral issues and as a result, the prospective employers no longer consider these individuals as viable candidates, Stuff-Mart could find themselves battling defamation claims. Defamation in employment is considered a tortious act and the law holds employers liable for committing these actions (Beatty, Samuelson, & Dean 704). In order to prove a defamation case, a plaintiff must show an employer acted “maliciously” in giving “false and potentially disparaging remarks” about them in an employment reference (Buckhalter 272). According to Roger B. Jacobs in Labor Law Journal, defamation can be libel or slander and occurs when the following elements are present: “(1) a communication which is not privileged; (2) a communication which is false; (3) injury to reputation; (4) publication or the communication to a third person” (567). There......

College Should Not Get Paid

...K.Williams 1 I feel that college students shouldn’t be paid. A college student represents his or her institution and it is his responsibility to play with honesty and devotion. Many students find it the best way to earn money and leave the education behind. [pic] Sport is necessary but there should be schedules for playing sports and studying. In my opinion, a good player should be given scholarships and medals as an encouragement to be a wining athlete and a successful student. Let us also not forget, talks of collegiate pay for play, the reason college athletes are in school in the first place is they are here to acquire an education (hence the word student before athlete) which in turn will catapult them to lucrative careers down the road. “Sports as great as it is, is at least in college, a side show and should remain that way if for nothing else to protect the innocence and integrity of the game. For the athletes who are great and posses the potential to elevate their games to the next level, they will eventually be more than adequately compensated for their athleticism to the tune of millions in some cases. And before you under value the worth of a college education, look at it like this for some perspective. A college education, especially an American, one of the most desired attributes worldwide.” .”(Powell, A 2004) Every day Latinos climb on boats, along with anything else that will float, to try to navigate themselves on to......

Employee Attitudes Case Study

...consumer businesses had to deal with a hit in profit and financial gains. Typically, mass retail giants cut down locations as well as employees, making it difficult for workers to get bonuses or raises, and possibly take losses in corporate offices as well. However, some big retail companies, like Home Depot, Best Buy, and Bain & Company were able to turn some of these downturns into positives and give more to their employees and continue to grow their companies. The behavior and attitude of management can drastically affect a company’s outcome during a recession, so being proactive and seeking out the positive is always the most effective during times of need. According to Shalom Schwartz, who created the theory of personal values in the workplace, there are values managers hold that can influence behavior unknowingly at work (Kreitner and Kinicki, 152). Amongst the ten values, Bain & Company, Home Depot, and Best Buy all hold on to universalism. Universalism, the “understanding, appreciation, tolerance and protection of the welfare of all people and of nature” in the workplace creates a positive work environment for everyone involved (153). Bain & Company’s CEO Steve Ellis took the proactive approach during the recession and added even more employees to his team. “This is an opportunity to grab very talented people,” Ellis stated, when talking about how many former consultants became stranded during the recession (176). He is giving them the opportunity to come......

Employee Motivation Case Study

...Employee Motivation – A Short Case Study I joined CVS Caremark project in November after a successful stint working as a trainee at a Denver store. I had always wanted to go back to my hometown and live with my parents and when I got approved to transfer to Chicago I didn’t waste a single moment in saying yes to the new project and heading towards Illinois. Many of my friends were also moving to the Midwest at the same time which only made my decision easier. I felt that Caremark offered better career prospects, as it was a new project and we were offered to work on the current technologies that were in demand in the market. I was sure I would excel in my new position at Caremark, just as I had done in my old job as a trainee. I joined as Assistant Systems Engineer at Caremark, with a handsome pay hike for becoming a confirmed employee of the company. Caremark also had international operations and there was more than a slim chance that I would be sent to the UK on a project. Knowing that this would give me a lot of exposure, besides looking good on my resume, I was quite excited about the new job. I joined Bill Thompson's five-member team at Caremark. I had met Bill during the interview sessions, and was looking forward to working under him. My team members seemed warm and friendly, and comfortable with their work. I introduced myself to the team members and got to know more about each of them. Wanting to know more about my boss, I casually asked Scott, one of the team...

Imagine you are the supervisor/manager for each of the employees described below. As you read their case, give consideration to how you might help communicate with the employee to remedy the conflict. Answer the critical thinking questions at the end of the case? Bob is a 27-year old who is a food service manager at a casual dining restaurant. Bob is responsible for supervising and managing all employees in the back of the house. Employees working in the back of the house range in age from 16 years old to 55 years old. In addition, the employees come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. For many, English is not their primary language. Bob is Serve Safe certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in the kitchen but he admits it’s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safety basics (for example, appropriate hygiene and hand washing, time/temperature, and cleaning and sanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some new employees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, most employees get some kind of food safety training. The owners of the restaurant are supportive of Bob in his food safety efforts because they know if a food safety outbreak were ever linked to their restaurant; it would likely put them out of......

Case Study 1

...Case Study One Daniel Smith Southern Wesleyan University April 2, 2016 1) Think back on our discussion in the chapter section, Caveat Emptor-Be An Informed Consumer, evaluate whether the replacement of highly paid workers with lower-paid workers did or did not cause Circuit City to perform so poorly. How confident are you in your evaluation? Why? After reviewing the article, one can be confident that the replacement of highly paid workers was what made Circuit City perform poorly, which led to Circuit City closing. One can be confident that high paid skilled workers is what hurt Circuit City due to Best Buy being able to outperform Circuit City with less quality people and lower wages. Highly paid workers hurt Circuit City due to Circuit City not being able to compete with Best Buy; then replacing the high paid skilled workers with lower paid unskilled workers is what put Circuit City over the edge. The only way that Circuit City could compete with Best Buy is through customer service and when it replaces the high paid workers, it lost the customer service too. 2) Do you believe that the compensation changes at Best Buy are a major reason for its current difficulties? Since Best Buy is making cuts in departments that will not affect customer service, one can determine that the compensation changes are not a major reason for Best Buy’s current difficulties. The major reasons for Best Buy’s difficulties are increased competition from discount stores like......
