Sawyer Associates, like all businesses, has guidelines to follow when hiring new associates. Hiring a significant number of new employees at once puts a strain on the Personnel department. This leads to not paying close attention to detail as normal and not checking references to verify information, which in turn can allow non-qualified applicants to make it through and become hired on with Sawyer Associates. Honesty is imperative, but not always the case when people fill out resumes for potential employers. Of course they want to be hired, so people may fabricate details on their resumes to make them look more qualified then what they really are.

Prior to a new employee being hired, the proper steps and procedures must be followed by the Personnel department to insure the new hire is properly qualified for the position that’s being offered. The Personnel department, which is responsible for hiring, must not disregard the Company's policies, regardless of how busy the department may or may not be. When policies are followed by the Personnel department employees, no unqualified candidates will make it past the interview phase.


This case study identifies the issues with hiring new associates, associates being hired with inaccurate information on their resumes, and the Personnel department not following proper hiring policies. This analysis will highlight the main issues that could potentially affect future hiring of new employees if guidelines aren't followed strictly throughout the entire interview process.

The Personnel department at Sawyer Associates was overwhelmed since they hired a significant number of new associates at once, which in turn caused a lapse in attention to detail when hiring Jackie. Amanda, who is Jackie’s supervisor, is left to bear the burden of resolving the situation since she is…...

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

...Case Study no. 7 Nothing More Than a Receptionist? Aaron Ward, the Information Technology employee assigned to assist the Biology Department, has stopped by the Newman lab to check the set up of a new high-end graphics computer that has just arrived. The computer was purchased on Dr.. Newman's NSF grant awarded for a project to model the behavior of short carbohydrates in solution. Ward discovers that the computer has already been used quite a bit. There are dozens of files on it, and a program has just finished running. He seeks out a grad student, Bob Hanson, who seems to be the only person in the lab, to ask how the computer is working. "Oh, the new computer is fine. Dr. Newman set it up a couple days ago, and since then…" The telephone rings. "Excuse me." Hanson goes to answer the phone while Ward sits down at the computer. Hanson returns in a couple minutes and the conversation resumes. "As I was saying, since he set it up, Dr. Newman has been running a whole series of simulations and seems to be really happy with the new computer." The telephone rings once more. "Sorry, got to catch the phone." When Hanson returns, Ward asks him, "What software is Dr. Newman using for these simulations?" "Oh, it's some new program he wrote to model the behavior of short RNAs. He says it's working well. I'm looking forward to when I can…" Again, the telephone rings. "Sorry, I'll be right back." "What's with all the phone calls?" asks Ward when Hanson once again sits......

... SELECTED CASE STUDIES ANALYSIS This document has three short case studies that are considered classic. They are older but have timeless lessons. In addition, the case studies at the end of chapters 2 &3 of your textbook are good. Deliverable: Read these case studies carefully and develop a short report (2-3 pages) to discuss the key lessons learned from each and the similarities/differences between the case studies. It is best to use a table of the following format for this analysis. You can then reference this table when you take Quiz 2. Suggestion: For each case study, list 5 key lessons learned and then discuss (few sentences) how these lessons are related to each other. Same lessons can be learnt from different case studies (for example, many companies ignore the importance of technologies). Note: Please do your own research to get some additional information about these companies. |Assignments |Questions | | |What are the 5 key lessons learned from this case study | |Read the GE Case Study |What is the relationship to Other Case Studies (common lessons, new lessons) | | |What are the 5 key lessons learned from this case study | |Read the Rand McNally Case Study ......

...Samuel Smoot 02/16/2016 HR Case Study #1 Overview The three most appropriate selection methods in the hiring process I think would be best would be the Resume/ Curriculum vitae review, Application form and formal interview. Since I have been in the working field, these three methods have been used each and every time for my hiring process. I believe that these three methods are more so traditional used and very effective in selecting the right candidate for a company. I will give an overview on each selection method I have listed and how it would be effective in the hiring process. Resume/ Curriculum Vitae Review The Resume or Curriculum vitae review (as known as the CV) is a summary of a potential candidate’s work experience, education, skills and references. There are different kinds of CV’s that can be used, A Chronological CV, A functional CV and a combined CV. A Chronological CV focusses on presenting the candidate’s experience on an employer by employer basis, with the posts being listed in reverse chronological order. It also contains detail of education and qualifications, together with hobbies. Some chronological CVs also contain a brief personal statement at the front which sets out the key skills and strengths of the candidate. This is the most common type of CV. (Adenle, 2016). A functional CV highlights and shows off a candidate’s skills and abilities rather than work history. It more so used when a candidate......

Hartman Liberty University – HLTH 635_B01 June 16, 2016   Nonprofit Organization Case Study – Community Action Program of Lancaster County Pennsylvania Introduction/Background Imagine not having a job or having a job that pays minimum wage or less, food insecurity, and a home in a neighborhood that is run down and considered unsafe. This is the scenario of what millions of Americans are living each and every day with some wondering what can they do to make their lives better. Poverty is defined as a state of being extremely poor and is determined by the federal poverty guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.1,2 For a family of four, the federal poverty guideline to apply for federal assistance is $24,250.2 According to the nonprofit organization, Feeding America, which helps feed America’s hungry through a network of food banks, 46.7 million people are living in poverty in the United States.3 Specifically in Pennsylvania, 13.7 percent of people are living in poverty.4 Poverty in the United States is very real and unimaginable as because we are considered one of the wealthiest nations in the world. Although poverty in the United States is happening at rates that are hard to understand, it seems poverty in America is more about lack of basic necessities and lack of security to include food and housing.5 It is estimated......
