ABC Incorporated Case Study
ABC Incorporated has hired 15 new trainees. These trainees were hired in early April by campus recruiter Carl Robins. The trainees will report to Operations Supervisor Monica Carrolls. Monica expects Carl to handle all of the necessary onboarding arrangements. She expects the trainees will be working by July 1st. Several problems have been identified that will prevent this from happening. Solutions to these problems have been identified by this case study. Carl must act immediately and carry out the proposed solutions, if he wants the trainees to start work on or before the July 1st deadline. This study indicates that Carl Robins was not proactive enough during the onboarding process of 15 new recruits.

...Carl Robins has a major problem, he has been put in a situation that the company he works for has not prepared him for. The problem is bigger than Carl; it is just that his current situation is what brings the problem to light. The company’s problem comes from within, an internal problem that derives from poor management.

Organization has been a hindrance to this company long before this situation; I have come to this conclusion because of the occurrence in where the lack of organization was provided. In this study there are instances in which items are lost and incomplete, and rooms are double booked, which shows the negative effects of being unorganized.

...generation have to work longer which is also taking the jobs away from our teens. More and more adults are looking for not just one job, but two or three jobs to sustain them through the recession and more business closing or decreasing their staffing and making more part time positions then full time positions due to the increase in health insurance. The biggest reason that teens cannot find jobs is the recession, where businesses are closing, other establishments are cutting back on how many employees they have and their hours. They are looking for more reliable workers that can handle customer care, more skillful then first time teen workers. The other thing is that employees have to pay for their orientation to the new job and most employers, would rather pay for adults to get these jobs, for they know that they are more reliable then teens. (Mc Laughlin, 2010) Another unfortunate reason is the immigration population is growing in America, and some are here to stay but the majority are here for summer work and they are working our nursery’s and doing the lawn work that most families did their selves but to increase hours and jobs, they are having other do the jobs that they do not have time to complete.

Carl Robins Case Study for Student Analysis

...Study Analysis about the recent Recruitment effort at ABC Inc., I have determined that there is a lack of communication, prior planning, and follow up resulted in a failure to accomplish all the tasks necessary to hire the new employees in a timely fashion. This case Study is an attempt to identify and recommend ways to improve this process. The new campus recruiter for ABC Inc., Carl Robins has displayed poor planning, execution, and follow through with his first recruitment effort. After only six months of experience with the company, Carl hired 15 trainees. Some of Carl’s responsibilities for the new trainees was to; facilitate the new hire applications, plan a training schedule, organize the orientation, put together the necessary documents, arrange for drug tests, and other necessities in the normal recruiting process. Over a month had elapsed, before Carl realized that most of the new hires had incomplete or had not filed their applications, and all of the new hires had not been sent in for the mandatory drug screening. With a mere two weeks to pull everything together, and with few possible and viable solutions, I have determined the best way to work around the problem is for Carl to take action himself and call each new hire individually. By doing this, he can communicate the missing components of their application and make sure to have the new hires bring in the complete application and make sure each of the new trainees take required drug test before the......
