Homework Help: business

Posted by richa on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 4:03pm.

I need a help on my assignment-

This is my assignment -
1.Ten years ago, you started working as a clerk for DMD Medical Supplies.
2.Six months ago, Liz Jakowski, the human resources director, promoted you to office manager. You manage two employees: Jack Snyder and Ruth Disselkoen.
3.Your office provides secretarial support for the four members of the executive team.
4.Two years ago, Liz had assigned Jack to support Ralph Alane and Jessica Hilo.
5.Ruth was assigned to Samuel Daley and Frank Daley.
6.The work flow was equally balanced.
7.You’ve noticed that in the last three months Ruth has cut her breaks short to complete her work, complains of being tired, and at least twice a month requires overtime hours costing the company an additional $200 a month.
8.In the last three weeks, Frank Daley has complained to you a few times about the poor quality of Ruth’s work.
9.On the other hand, over the last three months, Jack frequently seems to have little to do.
10.He has begun coming in late a couple times a week and taking more than the allotted break times.
11.What work he does have, however, is always professionally completed.
12.Clearly, you must investigate to determine what is causing this change and how to improve the situation. Since nothing has changed in the personal lives of either Jack or Ruth, you conclude you must focus on the in-office work situation.
13.You learn the following facts:
• Samuel and Frank Daley share a part-time administrative assistant who works only 15 hours a week.
• Ralph Alane and Jessica Hilo share a full-time administrative assistant.
• Jessica Hilo has been on medical leave for the last four months, and Liz Jakowski isn’t sure whether Jessica will be able to return to work.
• Jessica’s duties have been temporarily reassigned to Ralph and Frank.
Although you don’t have the authority to change the work assignments of the two administrative assistants or the executive team, you clearly need to change your office assignments so that both Jack and Ruth work regularly without requiring overtime.

this is my preparation-

For the past three months work related problems have occurred in the office , about a month after Jessica Hilo went on medical leave, this changes need to be addressed. Before the work load was equally divided, there were no problems with the quality or amount of work being given, and there were no overtime expenses. Jack Snyder, a full-time assistant, works for Jessica and Ralph Alane. Ruth Disselkoen, a part-time assistant, works for Samuel Daley and Frank Daley. Since Jessica went on medical leave, the balance in workload has shifted. Jack's workload is one-fourth what it was, while Ruth's has increased by one-half. As a result, the workload is no longer equally divided. Lately I have noticed that Jack has less work to do, and takes longer breaks then permitted. However, the work that he does have is professionally done. Ruth's overtime is costing the company $200 each month. Jack's work is still good, but his work ethic is suffering, because he takes breaks and comes in late. We need to confront these issues to save on overtime costs and distribute the workload equally.
Since, we are not certain when Jessica will be returning to work; we need to make temporary adjustments in work responsibilities of Jack and Ruth. I recommend jack and Ruth should share their responsibilities of work till Jessica returns. This would equally distribute the workload, cut the overtime, increase job performance, and minimize stress for everyone in the company. We should implement this plan for at least three weeks. By then, we should have an idea if Jessica is returning to work, and then we can determine if we need to replace her or to continue with this arrangement.

i want to know if my prepared assignment matches the requirement? and also capitalization and any other grammar mistakes.
Thanks in advance for any help:)
