The top management should also take an effort to print out the company's strategies, objectives, and goals and distribute them to every individual in the organization.
One of the major changes which will also be implemented is the role of the human resource department within the business organization. Currently, Acico's the human resource department is concerned only about the operational aspect of management specifically administrative issues but will be also be involved in the strategic aspect of management. This will be started through the appointment of new VP for Human Resource. Recognizing that the business organization's human resources are strategic partners of Acico, it will only be logical to give the department a significant portion in the shaping the company's vision, mission, goals, and strategies. The human resource department will be taking on an active role in shaping the strategic direction of the business organization.
In the operational aspect, staffing and recruiting will be taken more seriously by setting a set of more stringent standards. Prospective employees will not only be admitted to the organization based on their credentials but most especially on their knowledge, skill, and personality type. This will ensure that the company hires competent individual to man the different positions. In order to keep up with the requirements, intensive training will also be conducted specifically on the management team. A comprehensive training program will be conducted regularly which will equip managers with the knowledge and skills for their positions. Acico will also be intensifying its effort in motivating its workforce through the installation of a reward system comprised of monetary and non-monetary incentives. Top management should also take their part in this motivation strategy by reaching out to lower level employees and empowering them by giving them the chance to make some minor decisions on their own.
2. How would the organization function better after these changes are made
I believe that putting these new strategies in place will introduce new changes in the business organization which will bring about a total turnaround. Overall, these changes are geared in motivating employees. Recognizing their essential role within Acico, the company can now communicate this clearer to their workforce through involving them in the strategy making process. With the increased enthusiasm and interest from employees, productivity is expected to be in an uptrend. The work environment will be transformed becoming more fun rather than the boring, routine jobs. With these changes, I think the company can survive for more generations to come and keep up with the expected growth and competition. With the new VP for HR, the employees' needs and complaints will be given more attention, thus, lowering employee turnover.
