Open communication will play a huge role in ensuring employees understand the importance of this merger. Managers must understand that change affects the lives of people.

The more people know about and understand the changes ahead, the less likely they are to start rumors and suffer from anxiety and reduced job effectiveness” (p. 13).

...that are necessary to perform the job. Job analysis involves reporting the job as it currently exists in the specific organization for which the analysis is applicable. Job analysis does not report on the job as it existed in the past or as another organization performs it (University of Minnesota, 2008). The continuous observation method is an appropriate method of conducting a job analysis. With the continuous observation method, a trained and experienced observer studies one or more employees (assigned to perform a specific job) over a period of time. The observer records what the employee does, the manner in which the work is completed and how long it takes to complete the work. The job analysis for the salesperson position at InterClean includes the following major job functions and KSAs: A. Prospect and lead generation–Requires the employee to maintain a detailed knowledge of company products, processes, and procedures including but not limited to pricing and time to market. Requires the ability to identify customer needs and the ability to sell the solution and its value, rather than focusing on the price. Requires the skills associated with moving beyond customer objections. B. Contract negotiation–Requires command of strong negotiation techniques.

...Interclean Memorandum Bertheia Gary HRM/531 August 23, 2010 Tiffany Mytty-Klein Interclean, Inc. Memorandum To: Supervisory Team From: Bertheia Gary RE: Management Behavior As you all are aware, the merger between Interclean and EnviroTech is final, and implementation of change will soon occur. There has been recent gossip and rumors about the merger. As managers, let’s be sure to continue to role model, respect and be fair to employees, and use our best practices in the work environment. Here are some quick tips and reminders to assist you while managing employees in our diverse and changing environment. In almost every organization, change is inevitable. If the manager or supervisor understands how change works, and how it affects others, work from employees will remain encouraging and productive. The most valuable asset a manager can have when involved in a change is an ability to lead. It is not uncommon for most people to fear change. With a combination of fear, instability, and uncertainty, a work environment can become chaotic. Managers must focus on subordinate’s feelings about the change and recognize and confirm those feelings of the employees. Multiple reactions may occur in any change situation. Individuals react as their needs dictate. Different people have different needs and from this a feeling of loneliness, panic and fear may arise in the workplace. Managers must be aware of discussing certain issues of the business among subordinates and not......

...numerous selection methods, the selection methods determined appropriate for this new sales team is a peer assessment, an interview, and recommendations. It has become necessary to create five new positions. The positions will consist of: (1) Senior Manager, (1) Sales Team Leader (3) Sales Representatives. Focusing on the talent available and the identified job descriptions a review of the available employees was performed, placing emphasis on the soft skills, which are harder to develop. It is my recommendation that for these newly created positions we hire out side of the company. It’s a great idea to consider an internal candidate for a critical position opening and compare him to the slate if outside candidates. (Tolan, 2008) InterClean is committed to being open to a diverse culture not only in terms of race, gender, or sexual orientation but in terms of knowledge, skills, attitudes, backgrounds and experience.

Problem Solution: Interclean, Inc.

...Problem Solution: InterClean, Inc. InterClean, Inc. is an industry leader in the industrial cleaning and sanitation industry. Over the years the company has graduated from being a spray and wipe products but rather a solutions and services industry. InterClean, Inc. is trying to make the transition from being a solely sales-based organization to a solutions-based organization. The company has acquired Envirotech in an effort to be a fully all inclusive organization. This has prompted various changes in the organization. In the following paper I will discuss issues and opportunities that could possibly face the company, stakeholders that are involved, alternative solutions, an optimal solution and the implementation of that solution. Situation Analysis Issue and Opportunity Identification The new strategic direction that InterClean, Inc. is undertaking has led to a few very distinct issues. The issues have presented the company with new opportunities to better itself. The CEO of Interclean has determined that the employees of the company have low morale. There needs to be some type of employee motivation. The company will be adding new workshops that will instill confidence and get the employees excited about the changes that will be happening. Pay and other rewards can stimulate employee effort toward reaching key goals—such as high performance (Dreher & Dougherty, 2001). Training and developing employees is necessary with all companies. In the Interclean scenario it......

Interclean

...Problem Solution: InterClean, Inc. In the Interclean Inc scenario, the company is a major player in the industrial cleaning and the sanitation industry. The InterClean, Inc. is competing to fulfill the emerging need of providing solutions and services as well as products catered to the stringent environmental safety requirements (University of Phoenix, 2008). This paper will identify alternatives that could be followed by InterClean to achieve the company’s end state goal. The Human Resources Management could follow these alternatives for making its employees motivated and productive while working towards a successful merger. By making the employees happy, they will make the customers happy and show continues support for the growth of the company. This would make Interclean to attain their sales goal by increasing the profit of the company by 40% in the following year. Situation Analysis Issue and Opportunity Identification The CEO of the Interclean has come out with the new service model to meet the customer needs and the currently changing environment. This service model will provide an opportunity for the employees and the company to gain valuable skills over the next several years. Interclean merged with Environ Tech, which could have a restructuring in the existing departments. Since there will be an organizational change in the company, the HRM department should communicate with the employees. They should be explained about the need for the change, which will......
