Employee Retention - 1,091 words
In 1999 employee turnover shot to its highest level in nearly two decades. On average, 1.2 % of the workforce left their jobs each month last year. This did not include departures due to layoffs, downsizing, or departures of temporary staff. Job turnover is soaring for a few reasons. One is definitely the strength of the economy. If companies need to find workers they can raise salaries, which increases the likelihood that someone will leave a job for one that pays more. Another reason is the loosening of bonds between employer and employee. There are lower levels of loyalty in todays work environment. I believe money and perks can be used to attract people to a company but to retain skilled ...

Labor Economics And Labor Relations - 676 words
Reaction Paper # 3 is based on the Article, Labor Economics and Labor Relations, by Loyd Reynolds, Stanley Masters, & Colletta Moser. This article offers a number of economical viewpoints, which although justifiable and scientifically proven, are still subject to debate. The first disagreeable point made by the authors was their belief that an employee seeks an overall employment package, apart from wage, in determining their future employer. According to the article, the employee does not seek the highest wage available in their particular market. Instead, they search for the job that will offer the greatest net advantage such as fringe benefits and a pleasant working environment. This is n ...

Restaurant Management - 1,592 words
One of the oldest and most prominent problems in the restaurant industry is employee turnover. "With annual turnover rates reaching 300%, apparently the foodservice industry's problem is not finding employees, it's keeping them" (Weinstein, 1992, [online]). The manager is the essential element to running a successful independent restaurant. In my eyes, a successful restaurant goes beyond the financial spectrum. I believe successful, in this sense, is defined as employing and retaining happy employees who are motivated to work. "A happy employee makes a happy customer" (Strauss, 1999, [online]). When customers are pleased with the service they receive when dining out, they are more inclined t ...

Conflict Resolution In Work Teams - 1,176 words
... in unresolved anger, personality clashes, unclear roles, and problems of efficiency (De Janasz et al., 2002). The key to averting destructive conflict and replacing it with constructive conflict is to address the conflict as soon as it is recognized. It is important to deal with the conflict before it becomes unmanageable. Once the team has recognized that a conflict exists, it must transform the conflict from a personal conflict to an organizational one (Gary, 2003, para. 5). By taking this action, the team can minimize personal feelings as much as possible and concentrate on finding a constructive solution. Removing personal feelings from the equation can help the group look at the con ...

Introduction To Employee Counseling - 1,729 words
Human resource management was not a very popular discipline in the earlier part of the last century. Managers at that time viewed labor force as a commodity to be bought or sold like any other commodity. This type of management was probably effective at its time. But it proved to be short lived, which is evident from the ever-increasing importance of what, is now called Human Resource Management. Human Resource Management is the part of the organization that is concerned with the people dimension, consisting of staff support and function in the organization. Every organization is comprised of people (Hoque, 2000:17) and deals with acquiring their services, developing their skills, motivating ...
