Human Resource Management Phillips Furniture is a well-established furniture company that has been around for 10 years. The owner, Mr. Phillips has recently decided that his company has grown enough and is now in need of a human resource manager. Being that the company has ran for 10 years without any sort of HR manager, the individual who receives this position must understand exactly what human resource management entails and then be able to excel in the position.

What is Human Resource Management? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Human resource managers plan, direct, and coordinate the administrative functions of an organization.” They also state that HR managers are considered the link between a company’s management and employees. Along with the interviewing and hiring of new staff, they also are called upon to work with executives on strategic planning. Typically HR managers are responsible for all functions that deal with a company’s employee’s needs and activities. Examples of these responsibilities include, but are not limited to: employee training, performance management, policy recommendation, wages and benefits, employee relations, team building, and leadership.

Human Resource Management and Phillips Furniture Phillips Furniture has essentially been in business for 10 years and never had a HR manager. From a HR perspective, the company will more than likely have many areas that need to be changed. They may also various aspects that need to be implemented. The HR manager will need to figure out which areas of the company need immediate attention. They will also need to make sure that Mr. Phillips is aware of the importance of changing or implementing aspects of his business.

Consequently this report will suggest solutions to ensure that Philips stays a leader in the industries that it exists and does not face similar challenges in future. Additionally this report will conclude by stating recommendations to solve the problems. Their strategic opportunity was to utilize and make the most of this competitive and innovative research more profitable around the world. In order to reach this, they needed to move beyond the mature products into areas that would have a leading technological edge and that would offer sales opportunities in other parts of the world as well as Europe. In this case study some questions will be answered in relation to how successful Phillips have applied the strategies they followed and the problems they have encountered. QUESTION 1 What three methods has the company introduced to exploit its research base? How successful has it been so far? 1. Linking the company’s scientists to the six divisions of the company.  Allocating the research and development to the 6 divisions means that there is pressure to perform and generate ideas that will eventually lead to profits for Philips. If there is pressure to perform and risk of admonishment from management, then there will be a poor psychological climate in the company, therefore there will be less innovation as a result.  Divisions will be too fearful to launch any new research projects for fear of......

Phillips Furniture

...SUPPLEMENTAL CASE: Chapter 1 Case: Phillips Furniture Ten years ago Albert Phillips opened his own retail store and sold unpainted furniture. His store was located in Lakeside, a small city in the southeastern part of the United States. Although his business was somewhat slow first, it grew steadily. Many more sales, stock, and clerical personnel were hired. However, it soon became evident that Mr. Phillips was not able to effectively service all potential customers. Warehouse space was also badly needed. Phillips Furniture Store was situated in a central location, and Mr. Phillips was hesitant about relocating. As an alternative to relocating, Mr. Phillips opened a satellite store in an outlying district to attract a new source of customers, as well as to provide better service to his current customers. Mr. Phillip eventually expanded his business into several neighboring towns until he had a total of six stores. When Martin Furniture, a small manufacturing firm that supplied some of the furniture for Phillips, became financially unstable, Mr. Phillips was able to gain control of the manufacturing plant. At the end of last week, you were called into Mr. Phillips’ office, and Mr. Phillips said, to you, “I have been pleased with your progress with us as a management trainee since you graduated six months ago.” He explained that he felt that the company had gotten large enough to need a personnel manager. Previously, all managers......

Captain Phillips

...Captain Phillips Captain Phillips was really an inspiring movie, considering the fact that it was based on true incident in 2009. I wasn’t aware about this incident before watching the movie. Captain Phillips was indeed brave and a true leader who held himself hostage in order to keep his crew and ship safe from the pirates and getting himself rescued in the end. After the movie and the class discussion, I got to learn some important learning which are important in day to day life of a leader. Captain Phillip’s anticipating and preparing himself before any incident took place ensuring the ship doors were locked and the crew was ready for any unseen event. This shows he learnt from his experience and prepared for the worst. Also staying calm and focused and not creating a panic is important during attacks and disaster. He inspired me how he was protective about his crew even though he dint knew everyone in person. This made him earn their trust. He also was smart to let the crew know where he was moving with the pirates in the ships and also giving them clues as to how the crew could fight with the pirates making their weakness as the crew’s strength. He let the pirates take him as hostage in order to make sure being a captain, his ship and crew would be safe. There were two leaders in the movie, one was Captain Phillip’s and other was Musa. Both were different kind of leaders. Captain Phillip’s was more planned and knew what he was doing. But, Musa was an aggressive......

And this proves that the company should go with the restructuring rather than going with the offer made by Phillip Morris Thus we recommend that the Kraft’s should go with the proposed restructuring in search for a better value for the shareholders B. Are these forecasts reasonable? Provide an evaluation/critique of the main assumptions. As the management feels that the Phillip Morris has underpriced them, and their value is much more than the proposal at $90. And they can easily increase their value by restructuring. They can prove to Phillip Morris that what they are paying is actually less, by showing them their restructuring benefits and can claim to increase the bidding value. krafts can also pitch that Phillip Morris is actually paying very less because of the interest tax shield that will be available for the leverage that will be taken. Taking this interest tax shield into consideration, the value that Phillip Morris is paying comes out to a The restructuring using......

A person cannot even think of a house, office or a business firm without furniture. Every person rich or poor has furniture in his house with accordance to his financial conditions. But people of the late Permian period (260-245) million years ago, Triassic period (245-2080 million years age, Jurassic period (208-140) million years ago didn’t even think of something called furniture. The eve of using furniture started with the advent of the Neolithic age when people started to make their lives comfortable and started agriculture. Though food, clothing, and forming family were major issues but furniture also became the need of people. People needed a place to sleep and the concept of making bed started,. They needed place to sit and so they started making chairs. They needed a place to eat together so they made dinning tables. Then with the change of time furniture also changed and people started to make furniture modernized. Furniture changes with society Furniture has a strong connection with society. Soon after the evolution of history people were divided in various classes. The two main classes were the ruler and the ruled or the rich and the poor. These class variations also bought variations in furniture. The rich people i.e., the Mughal emperors, the nawab families, the zamindars used furniture made with high......
