Consider firing one of your employees. What communication channel would you choose to inform him/her about your decision and why? (2.5 Marks) Part 2: Critical Thinking Here is a portion of an online forum about a company’s performance review system: (1) Jackson: Our current performance review system really isn’t working well. Can you all share your major concerns with the current annual system and share what you view as the benefits of a quarterly review system? (2) Cynthia: It really doesn’t matter what we think about the review system. Management won’t listen to us anyway. (3) Erin: Do any of you know when the next team meeting is? I have it on my calendar for next Monday but that’s Labor Day. Pretty sure that’s not right. (4) Nigel: Whether our reviews are annual, quarterly, daily, or hourly, we never get evaluated fairly, especially in our department. Wayne has his favorites. (5) Vilma: I don’t think we should change anything. I think our human resource team is all knowing and has created a perfect system. I’m motivated to improve my behavior every single time I get my annual review back. It’s always the happiest day of the year! Of course, if we had a quarterly system, we could have four happy days per year. Food for thought. Read the sample forum and answer the following questions: a. b. c. d. e.
