Homework Help: Human Resources

Posted by Katie on Saturday, September 6, 2008 at 4:36pm.

In the home office, a director asked an employee about a particular machine, the employee replied that she did not know what the machine was called or what it did, but she precisely know how to operate it. At the branch office, a supervisor explained that employee turnover was high, so she had little time to work with new employees as they came and went. All branch supervisors hired their own employees without communication with the home office or other branches.

I need some ideas on these questions. Thanks.

1) What do you think is causing the problems in the home office and branches?
-I think mostly lack of communciation. Anything else?

2) Do you think setting up an HR department would help, if yes, what functions should it carry out? What functions would be carried out by supervisors and other line managers?

3) What role should the Internet play in the new HR organization?
