This is a difficult case study, and I have been receiving a lot of questions about it. I am writing a brief synopsis to Question #1. Please keep in mind, you will need to add anything else you might think is warranted and be sure to answer the rest of the case study. If you have already submitted your case study and you want to change your answers, just email me your new one. As usual any questions, just shoot me an email or text. Hope you find time to enjoy the beautiful weekend ahead.
Here’s what we know.
• 20 percent of applicants are invited for interviews
• 80 percent of interview invitations are accepts
• 15 percent of the people interviewed are extended job offers
• 50 percent of the people receiving job offers accept them
• The company’s average recruiter can process 100 recruits during a recruiting drive
• The company’s staffing timeline the last time it hired production line employees is: Application Interview Job Offer Job Offer Begin Prejob Assessment Extended Accepted Training

14 days + 7 days + 7 days + 14 days Question #1. How many people should Sweet Tooth recruit for its 50 new assembly line jobs? To answer this question, you have to work backwards. If Sweet Tooth needs 50 new hires and there is only a 50% acceptance rate so 100 people need to be offered the job. 50/.50 = 100 In order to find 100 suitable people to interview and with only 15% of the interviewees successfully being offered a job, 667 people need to be interviewed. 100/.15 = 667 In order to ensure that 667 people are interview, with 80% of all applicants who are offered interviews accepting the invitation, 834 people need to be offered an interview. In order to have…...

...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...

Sweet Tooth Inc., Case Study

...Sweet Tooth Inc., Case Study Recruiting and development of employees have always been a critical human resource function. Especially in unpredictable economic times, human resource leaders are concerned with stewardship of resources by having the right people in the right jobs. “Determining the human resources required by an organization involves identifying the jobs, skills and knowledge required by those jobs and the performance level of the current workforce. Using this data, you can forecast hiring or reorganizing needs for both the onboard short and long term” (Duggan, 2014). How many people to hire Sweet Tooth, Inc. has determined a need for 50 new employees to meet the needs of it new production line. In the recruiting process there is historical data of previous recruiting efforts that are known as a hiring yield. For every job this data helps the recruiting team understand how many total applications will be needed to meet the requirement. In this case 4,100 applications will need to be accepted in order to generate the 50 hires. Twenty percent, or 820, of the applicants will receive an invitation for an interview. Eighty percent , or 656, will accept the invitation. Only 15 percent, 99 applicants, will be offered a job, and 50 percent of offers made will be accepted to produce the final 50 needed to start the new production line. Recruiters Now that it has been determined that 4100 applicants will need to be recruited, the......

The purpose of the interview was explained in addition to an outline of the types of questions which would be asked during the interview. A copy of the interview questions were provided prior to the interview (Appendix 1) so the questions would be familiar, and to minimise any embarrassment. The importance of maintaining her privacy and the necessity of choosing a pseudonym was discussed which she perceived as great fun. She chose ‘Patricia’ as she thought it was rather a ‘posh’ sounding name and one which she had always liked. At the beginning of the interview the confidentiality aspects were reiterated to which Patricia indicated verbal permission for her information to be disclosed as applicable and appropriate with due regard to her ethical and legal rights (ANMC 2008, p.4). Patricia was advised any questions which she did not feel happy answering could be skipped in order for her to feel comfortable within the interview environment.

...incumbents are reaping economic profits. The pharmaceutical industry is indeed risky, but entry from the biotechnology industry suggests that opportunities for above-normal profits are present. Q1.8 Why is the concept of enlightened self-interest important in economics? Q1.8 ANSWER The concept of self-interest is important because it provides the underlying rationale for economic decisions. Consumers and producers make economic decisions in such a manner as to further their own material well-being. Consumers make purchase decisions when goods and services represent a relative bargain in terms of the benefits they provide. Firms and other producers make the decision to supply output when doing so is profitable. In both cases, furthering the self-interest of each decision maker provides the underlying rationale for economic decisions. Interestingly, the desire to further each decision maker's own self-interest results in voluntary economic exchange that is mutually beneficial. A business or consumer transaction takes place if and only if both parties benefit. Q1.9 "In the long run, a profit-maximizing firm would never knowingly market unsafe products. However, in the short run, unsafe products can do a lot of damage." Discuss this statement. Q1.9 ANSWER The marketing of unsafe products is clearly inconsistent with long-run profit maximization. For example, no pharmaceutical manufacturer would knowingly market drugs with negative......

Consistent with predictions derived from power/dependence theory, the results of a cross-sectional study with employees from three organizations suggest that abusive supervision is more strongly associated with subordinates’ organization deviance and supervisor-directed deviance when subordinates’ intention to quit is higher. The results also support the prediction that when intention to quit is higher, abusive supervision is more strongly associated with supervisor-directed deviance than with organization-directed deviance. These results were replicated in a second study, a two-wave investigation of people employed in a variety of industries and occupations. Ó 2009 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

...CONFIRMING PAGES CASE 1-1 Starbucks—Going Global Fast The Starbucks coffee shop on Sixth Avenue and Pine Street in downtown Seattle sits serene and orderly, as unremarkable as any other in the chain bought years ago by entrepreneur Howard Schultz. A few years ago however, the quiet storefront made front pages around the world. During the World Trade Organization talks in November 1999, protesters flooded Seattle’s streets, and among their targets was Starbucks, a symbol, to them, of free-market capitalism run amok, another multinational out to blanket the earth. Amid the crowds of protesters and riot police were blackmasked anarchists who trashed the store, leaving its windows smashed and its tasteful green-and-white decor smelling of tear gas instead of espresso. Says an angry Schultz: “It’s hurtful. I think people are ill-informed. It’s very difficult to protest against a can of Coke, a bottle of Pepsi, or a can of Folgers. Starbucks is both this ubiquitous brand and a place where you can go and break a window. You can’t break a can of Coke.” The store was quickly repaired, and the protesters scattered to other cities. Yet cup by cup, Starbucks really is caffeinating the world, its green-and-white emblem beckoning to consumers on three continents. In 1999, Starbucks Corp. had 281 stores abroad. Today, it has about 7,000—and it’s still in the early stages of a plan to colonize the globe. If the protesters were wrong in their tactics, they weren’t wrong...

Sweet Tooth Inc. Case Study

...you have completed the sections below. | Introduction/ Background of the Study | There were an estimated 2.5 million men and women deployed abroad during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, many multiple times (42%) (VCS, 2011). These veterans were subject to a type of urban warfare never before seen, and accordingly, brought home a myriad of mental, emotional and physical problems that the nation must now address. Major problems of concern vary but the need for substantial employment, healthcare (mental and physical), and education top most lists, with transitioning from military to civilian life up there as well. There is a need to address the overrepresentation of veterans in the homeless, prison and drug use/abuse demographic. Studies show that veterans comprise approximately 10% of the nation’s prison population, 33% of the homeless population, and 12% of the unemployed (Schmidt, L., Simmonds, G., & Sulfaro, H. 2014). There are many educational benefits the VA offers vets that are relatively easy to access and historically haven’t been subject to drastic funding troubles (Griffin, K., & Gilbert, C. 2012). There is a definite shortfall in the VA health system and support systems for transitioning from military to civilian life. The backlash in 2014 over the waiting time for veterans to receive care caused a backlog of 50% more cases than when the scandal surfaced and the voucher system the VA implemented for......
