Les Partain, manager of the training and development department for Gazelle Corporation, was 64 years old and had been with the firm for over 30 years. For the past 12 years he had served as Gazelle’s training and development manager and felt that he had been doing a good job. This belief was supported by the fact that during the last five years he had received excellent performance reports from his boss, LaConya Caesar, HR director.

Six months before Les’s birthday, he and LaConya were enjoying a cup of coffee together. “Les,” said LaConya, “I know that you’re pleased with the progress our T&D section has made under your leadership. We’re really going to miss you when you retire this year. You’ll certainly live the good life because you’ll receive the maximum retirement benefits. If I can be of any assistance to you in developing the paperwork for your retirement, please let me know.”

“Gee, LaConya,” said Les. “I really appreciate the good words, but I’ve never felt better in my life, and although our retirement plan is excellent, I figure that I have at least five more good years. There are many other things I would like to do for the department before I retire. I have some excellent employees, and we can get many things done within the next five years.”

After finishing their coffee, both returned to their work. As LaConya left, she was thinking, “My gosh, I had no idea that character intended to hang on. The only reason I gave him those good performance appraisals was to make him feel better before he retired. He was actually only an average worker and I was anxious to move a more aggressive person into that key job. We stand to lose several good people in that department if Les doesn’t leave. From what they tell me, he’s not doing too much of a…...

Abc Steel Company

...GRADUATE SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT MASTER IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION CASE ANALYSIS December 10, 2006 ABC STEEL COMPANY Robert Cruz, newly appointed Shop Manager of ABC Steel Company, was making his way through the plant back to his office. He had just reviewed the company’s most recent operating statistics with his boss, Rudyard de los Santos, Operations Manager. The statistics were shocking: ABC Company’s production backlog had reached such proportions that top management decided not to accept any further business. The company was paying penalties of P50, 000.00 a day due to non-fulfillment of contract delivery dates. ABC Company was one of the country’s largest producers of fabricated steel products. The company fabricated and installed storage tanks, mine and cane car bodies, dump bodies, boats and many types of structural steel. As shown in the organization chart (Exhibit 1), fabrication and installation activities were organized as independent activities. Robert Cruz had recently been promoted from Quality Control Supervisor to Shop Manager (see Exhibit 1). Twenty-nine years old, Robert had worked for ABC Company for the past 2 years. He had previously worked as a sheet metal worker and as an instructor at a United States naval base in Subic. Robert held an engineering degree from a local university. Plagued by an ever-increasing production backlog, ABC Company had placed Robert in charge of all shop operations. There were 200 workers in the shop......

Reporting of Pension Plan in Acquisition of Company Abc

...MEMORANDUM TO: Company CEO FROM: Accounting SUBJECT: Reporting of Pension Plan in acquisition of Company ABC DATE: June 11, 2013 In the acquisition of Company ABC, many factors must be considered, including the acquisition of the company’s pension plans and the addition of two segments. After careful analysis, the two operating segments have caused a loss to the company and must be eliminated. This memo will outline the reporting procedures for the pension plans and the necessary steps that must be taken to eliminate the segments. Defined Contribution Plan One of the most frequently encountered and widely used pension plans is the defined benefit plan. Under this plan, the employer is required to contribute a pre-determined amount of the employee’s salary to this pension plan. The amount of benefits paid out at the onset of retirement are not guaranteed and “are determined by the return earned on the invested pension funds during the investment period” (Schroeder, Clark, & Cathey, 2011). Employees also have the option of designating where their funds are invested, whether it be in stocks or in fixed-income securities. The defined contribution plan has become popular among employers due to no risk on behalf of the employer and the ease of reporting. Variations of the plan include: thrift plans, savings plans, 401(k) plans, profit-sharing plans, and incentive savings plans. Because of its simplicity in reporting, the defined contribution......

A Case Study of Abc Company

...A Case Study of ABC Company COMM/215 Essentials of College Writing 8 May 2014 A Case Study of ABC Company What follows below is an analysis of the ABC Company’s hiring and training practices. In reviewing the events as described, many issues have surfaced regarding the assigned recruiter, Carl Robins and the human resources and training practices of the ABC Company. There are numerous examples of disorganization, lack of following through and areas of overlapping responsibilities, requiring a possible reorganization of the business itself. Although the Case Study does not specify, for the purposes of analysis it is assumed that there are separate Human Resources and Training Departments within the company, for, in today's business world, it would be difficult to imagine a company structure that did not include these two key departments. Initially, there appears to be a definite lack of coordination, planning and follow-through of the newly hired recruiter, Carl Robins. There are many incidents that demonstrate his lack of follow-through in the entire hiring and training processes. Many questions arise that deserve to be asked and examined. For example, 1) Why did he not immediately follow-through with the newly hired employees to ensure all required paperwork was properly and timely completed? 2) Did he assume that the Human Resource Department or Monica, the Operations Supervisor would follow-through with the scheduling of drug testing, physicals, etc. of......

Abc Company Goes Global

...754 • Case 24 • ABC Chemical Company Goes Global The ongoing economic recession in Japan will continue to erode consumer purchasing power and confidence; luxury goods will suffer as consumers move toward cheaper products. This is already becoming evident: consumption of cognac and premium whisky is declining in Japan. Since TWO DOGS was launched in 1998, there has been massive growth in the sales volume of cheaper products, such as ‘‘Can Chu-Hi’’ and ‘‘Hyoketsu Chu-Hi’’. These locally made Japanese brands are, in convenience stores, almost half the price of fully imported TWO DOGS. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. Should TWO DOGS maintain its premium price and thus risk losing volume growth to cheaper products during the recession? 2. What effect would lowering its price have on its brand positioning? 3. Would lowering its price require TWO DOGS to change to a licensing strategy? If so, should local production be in Japan? Or in nearby Asian countries with lower manufacturing costs, such as China or Thailand? 4. What other options does TWO DOGS have? Could the company change to a multi-brand strategy by introducing a new brand targeting the low-end segment? C ASE 24 ABC CHEMICAL COMPANY GOES GLOBAL Driven by competitive pressures, and the attractiveness of the industry’s fastest growing market in the world, a U.S.-based chemical manufacturer, ABC Chemical Company (name changed to maintain confidentiality) considered expansion into Asia, specifically, China.
