Select two of these potential problems and address the following questions:
o What factors make these difficult problems or challenges; what are some of the difficulties she needs to deal with?Doris Washington recently assumed her new position as HR Director at the XYZ Company, a software development firm with approximately 350 employees. Her staff includes a seasoned generalist as well as a benefits clerk. During her first 90 days on the job, Doris has noted the following issues that seem to be embedded in XYZ’s culture: 1) managers create their own interview questions; 2) for some employees, their compensation is simply determined by managers, not based on training, experience, geographic region, and so on; and, 3) the company seems to draw new employees from only two sources, one is the university from which the President of the company graduated.
While Doris has been contemplating these trends, the CEO has asked her to attend a strategy planning meeting about opening the company’s first location on in Toronto, Canada in approximately nine months. She needs to provide a recommendation to the CEO that can be used appropriately.
