Question description


As before, you are the newly hired top HR professional in this organization. Research the organization as you respond to the following:

Your company completed a merger of two large stores in neighboring towns roughly two months ago. While the two organizations are still in the transition period, you have noticed that the number of employees who have been coming to you with workplace concerns and issues has risen dramatically.

Most of the complaints surround the culture clash between the two merging stores.

Prior to coming on board, you were given the history of these two organizations and the background on the management style of both leaders. It became quite clear that this merger was going to be challenging, given the drastically different cultures of the two organizations. One of the companies was headed by a gentleman known for his casual, fatherly and employee-centric approach to business. This CEO allowed for an informal work environment that included all-staff coffee breaks and casual attire. The other company was run by a gentleman who was known for his thousand-dollar suits and a “take no prisoner” approach to business. This CEO wanted the job done right, and he wanted it done yesterday.

In addressing this situation, what is the first thing you would do as the HR manager? How would you address the two vastly different approaches to business management? What would a “best practices” employer do prior to the merging of two companies to address the issue of culture management? (Provide real-life best practice examples, providing employer name(s).

How might you show the return on investment (ROI) of your recommendations? Please insert numbers (fictitious, but realistic) to make your example meaningful.

Bring in at least 2 library sources to help strengthen your discussion.

Please upload your paper by the module due date. Paper length: 3-4 pages, not counting the cover and reference pages.
