SUPPLEMENTAL CASE: Chapter 16 Case: George Faces Challenges

 

George, the new department supervisor, wondered if he couldn?t have spent his

 

retirement from the Navy in a more relaxed atmosphere. He had just accepted a

 

position at the Stevenson Company, which had approximately 350 employees.

 

He was replacing the original supervisor of the Transportation Department. The

 

Department had been created only five years before and was located at a site

 

away from central headquarters. It started out employing only seven people and

 

had steadily grown until 45 people were employed there. George had one

 

assistant, two route managers, a dispatcher, an unfilled secretarial position, 23

 

full-time drivers, 17 part-time drivers, and a custodian. Job descriptions and

 

department procedures had been established during the first few years of the

 

department.

 

It didn?t take George long to find out that the previous supervisor felt no

 

one knew how a transportation department should operate except himself.

 

Consequently, he had handled all the planning, organization, and operating of the

 

department. He had delegated only minor duties to his staff and bailed out when

 

he could no longer handle the increasing work load. To complicate the situation,

 

the secretary who kept the books and department records left at the same time.

 

Neither position was filled for six weeks.

 

The assistant supervisor, two route managers, and the dispatcher were

 

apprehensive about the arrival of a new supervisor. All had assumed extra duties

 

with which they were not familiar.

 

Many employees were disgruntled because several drivers had abused

 

sick leave and were neglecting their job duties. This had resulted in an overall

 

feeling that if others could get by with this type of performance, why should

 

someone put forth any more effort than needed?

 

One week prior to George?s employment, the supervisor had put Francine,

 

a female minority driver, on probation for taking improperly requested vacation

 

leave, excessive absenteeism, and neglecting her job duties. She filed a

 

grievance with the Personnel Department against the supervisor. The company

 

lawyer had requested the charges be dropped against the driver an d the

 

probation be rescinded to prevent an EEOC claim against the company.

 

Employee records were so incomplete that no one could tell what had really

 

happened. In addition, the assistant supervisor had been placed on probation for

 

using improper procedures when putting an employee on probation and having

 

inadequate accounts of the charges against the driver.

 

Questions

 

1. What are the HR policies and processes that could have kept the

 

problem from happening>

 

2. What can George do to resolve the problems, and establish a

 

more coordinated department?
