[Recommended] 12 – 15 Slide

 

The setting is an 82-bed hospital  located in a small city. One day an employee of the maintenance  department asked the supervisor, George Mann, for an hour or two off to  take care of some personal business. Mann agreed, and he asked the  employee to stop at the garden equipment dealership and buy several  small lawnmower parts that the department required. While transacting  business at a local bank, the employee was seen by Sally Carter, the  supervisor of both human resources and payroll, who was in the bank on  hospital business. Carter asked the employee what he was doing there and  was told the visit was personal. On returning to the hospital, Sally  Carter examined the employee’s time card. The employee had not punched  out to indicate when he had left the hospital. Carter noted the time the  employee returned, and after the normal working day she marked the card  to indicate an absence of 2 hours on personal business. Carter advised  the chief executive officer (CEO), Jane Arnold, of what she had done,  citing a long-standing policy (in their dusty, and some would say  infrequently used, policy manual) requiring an employee to punch out  when leaving the premises on personal business. The CEO agreed with  Sally Carter’s action. Carter advised Mann of the action and stated that  the employee would not be paid for the 2 hours he was gone. Mann was  angry. He said he had told the employee not to punch out because he had  asked him to pick up some parts on his trip; however, he conceded that  the employee’s personal business was probably the greater part of the  trip. Carter replied that Mann had no business doing what he had done  and that it was his—Mann’s—poor management that had caused the employee  to suffer. Mann appealed to the CEO to reopen the matter based on his  claim that there was an important side to the story that she had not yet  heard. Jane Arnold agreed to hear both managers state their position. 

Present a 12 – 15 slide PowerPoint answering the case study questions. The number of slides exclude the title and reference pages. Substantial Speaker Notes are required throughout the entire presentation. Below you will find articles with more info on speaker notes.

  1. Develop the argument you would be advancing if you were in George Mann’s position.
  2. In similar fashion, thoroughly develop the argument you would advance if you were in Sally Carter’s position.
  3. Assuming the position of the CEO, Jane Arnold, render a decision.  (Document your decision in whatever detail may be necessary, complete  with explanation of why you decided in this fashion)
  4. Based on your responses to Questions 1 to 3, outline whatever  steps—policy changes, guidelines, payroll requirements, or something  else—you believe should be considered to minimize the chances of similar  conflict in the future.

Reference your readings and include a minimum of 5 peer-reviewed, scholarly, or similar articles.
