SUBJECT: Interclean-EnviroTech Merger
CC: Corporate Office As you may be aware, a recent merger with EnviroTech has brought about many changes within the organization. Though there are many concerns ranging from staffing and training, budget-cuts, termination rumors, and compliance issues, perhaps a review of our current staffing -- particularly in sales and marketing (University of Phoenix, n.d., p.2 ) is the most substantial to the success of this merger. It is important to note how your behavior can affect the productivity of workers, the types of management action that aligns with employment laws and those that do not, and the best practices for working within a diverse work environment.
First, as a mid-level sales manager it is important to understand how your behavior can affect the productivity of your workers. Though we have a talented sales team, its operation will have to adapt to fit our new direction (University of Phoenix, n.d., p.2). We pride ourselves on being able to offer current employees the opportunity to hone their sales skills. Offering positive reassurance and excitement toward the new sales training program is one way that you can help keep workers productive. Assuring workers that this new sales training is an excellent opportunity for all of us to gain valuable skills that will serve us individually and collectively over the next several years (University of Phoenix, n.d., p.2) will give them confidence to grow as an individual and develop personal goals. Reminding employees that the sales training may uncover new interests and talents that they possess which could allow for promotions…...

Interclean and Envriotech Merger

...With merging of InterClean and EnvrioTech Merger, it must be understood that major change, and company restructuring is inevitable. As leaders in the company, and those persons with the vision of the company, we must make the transition “seamless” and painless for all employees in the company. We must first evaluate when rightsizing be appropriate for the company, along with the correct manner to implement this process. Furthermore, when determining this information, we must also look at the ethical and legal ramifications of this process. This paper will help bring all these factors into perspective for this new merger. Before we can adequately determine when rightsizing during this company merge is most appropriate, we must fully understand what rightsizing encompasses. According to Zeffane, and Rachid “Rightsizing is still one of the most pertinent corporate issues in the 1990s as organizations continue to operate in conditions of economic depression, cost constraints, intense competition, market deregulation and structural changes such as mergers and acquisitions.” (1994). The article further begins to explain that “organizational rightsizing should be a strategically planned endeavor to reshape the organization by expanding part of the organization into new markets, contracting others and consciously leaving intact parts of the organization to support the corporate process in the organizational transformation.” (1994). In reading this article, and others we can......

Interclean and Enviro Tech Merger

...InterClean and Enviro Tech Merger HRM 548 - Recruitment and Retention Practices August 5, 2013 InterClean and Enviro Tech Merger InterClean, Inc. is a strong player in the $8 billion institution and industrial cleaning, and sanitation industry. For InterClean to become a major player and increase its profitability, it is vital for the company to evolve with the industry. InterClean is exploring ways to increase the service based division of the organization. With the recent acquisition of Enviro Tech and its personnel, InterClean can do just that. The company must consider, however, how to redefine sales staffing and customer service, as well as restructure the organization to achieve maximum profitability. With a strong strategy, InterClean can easily attain the sales goal of a 40% increase in profitability over the next year. Rightsizing, or downsizing, in an organization is always a difficult decision, even when it is the “right” decision. Before moving forward with any rightsizing efforts, InterClean should consider all options. Currently, InterClean has 45 employees, half of which have one year or less experience with the organization. With the acquisition of Enviro Tech, there are now an additional 50 employees, all of whom have 5 years or more experience. One option would be to absorb the Enviro Tech employees into the InterClean sales team, using their education and experience to assist with the development of the current employees. With 90% of the......

Interclean Merger Memo

...| | Memo To: Management Team From: Clark Kent CC: David Spencer Date: July 6, 2010 Re: InterClean-Enviro Tech Merger I’m sure by now you are all aware of the upcoming merger with EnviroTech. You all had an opportunity to read the e-mail from Mr Spencer so you know the importance of making this important move forward. I feel it is important for me to emphasize the crucial role that you have in laying the foundation for a very successful merger. Communication is the key to any successful organization. As supervisor you must have open and clear communication to your staff at all times. The goals and visions of our company must be emphasized not once but over and over again so that our employees understand what it is that they are working to achieve. Once they thoroughly understand they have a stake in the outcome, you will see their motivation and loyalty level skyrocket. As a former member of a recruiting organization that did not promote training or employee development, it was very clear to me that management had a huge impact on productivity in a work environment. When I began working for this aforementioned organization, I reported to work on the designated day and time and was rather pumped up to start my new job. Unfortunately I had no one to greet me, introduce me to other members in my section, or even show me the various dos and don’ts of the job...

Interclean and EnviroTech will become a united front with a new vision for the future. Training and mentoring play an important role in dictating how successful a corporation will be. We will focus on purpose of the sales team’s training and define the program that will be deployed. Assessment of the Training Needs Because of the new solution-sales strategy, more knowledge of the cleaning and sanitation industry is required. Training for outside sales representatives will be needed in areas of environmental regulation, OSHA standards, and sanitation standards as it pertains to different industries and regions. Training on company software and databases will also affect those individuals being hired from Enviortech. “Workers have to learn three kinds of new skills: 1) the ability to use new technology, 2) the ability to maintain it, and 3) the ability to diagnose system problems” (Cascio, 2006, p. 289) It is also essential for salespersons to undergo additional training in sales and communication as well as orientation materials for customers. With the transitions transpiring within the infrastructure, the new training material will explain the key requirements in preserving the competitive edge InterClean desires.

Interclean Enviro Tech Merger Paper

...InterClean Enviro Tech Merger Paper Shari Arthurton HRM 548 LJ Elliot 2-13-2012 Introduction InterClean has begun a new shift in their strategic plan. The new direction of the company is one focused on a “solutions and service model” through the creation of “full-range service packages” that are designed to meet the individual needs of each client (University of Phoenix, 2012). In concurrence with the new strategic plan, Interclean has merged with Envirotech. InterClean has made a big decision by merging with EnviroTech, which will allow them to sell cleaning products and evolve them into an environment friendly full-service cleaning business. As with any merger, there will be the need to be an evaluation of the options available in relation to workforce planning that is aligned with the organizational goals of InterClean. Interclean will need to determine if rightsizing is a viable option. In the event of job elimination, a plan must be developed to ensure the process is conducted ethically and legally, and if there is an involuntary separation, what steps need to be taken. Viable Options Whenever there is a merger between two companies, it is up to the purchasing company to figure out a way to intertwine both workforces. In this case, EnviroTech has decided to shift their strategic direction to Interclean. The new strategic goal of InterClean requires a need to provide new training to...

Management Behavior on Interclean-Envirotech Merger

...Management Behavior on InterClean-EnviroTech Merger The current essay has the intention to briefly analyze the merger situation between the two companies InterClean and EnviroTech, after the acquisition of the latter from the former organization. As a part of InterClean’s new strategy newly proposed solutions/service model, sales reps from both companies will be set into multi-functional teams taking advantage of all the expertise gathered mutually from these organizations in the Cleaning and Sanitation Industry. A merger or fusion between organizations is always a sensitive subject to deal with, since the human capital from the companies involved will experience a cultural, structural and managerial change that needs to be handled delicately during the transition, in order to impact the least on areas like employees social identity, behavior and attitudes toward organizational commitments, turnover intention of key players among the company, to name a few. Lipponen, J., Olkkonen, M., & Moilanen, M. (2004) explain the approach of social identity theories, by stating that they “share the same fundamental assumption that individuals define themselves in terms of their social group memberships and that group-defined self-perception produces distinctive effects on social behaviour and intergroup relations. This means that the more an individual conceives of him- or herself in terms of membership in a group or, in other words, identifies with the group, the more his or her......
