Identify the areas of overlap in the new client organization with others that you have had as clients. There are three main areas that seemed to be a consistent and ongoing issues facing organizations. Attracting and hiring the appropriate talent that fits with the needs of the organization is a major problem across all industries. There seems to be a consensus among clients that is quite difficult to attract and hire highly skilled employees. The biggest dilemma is not necessarily whether they are able to afford the compensation but whether the employee will remain loyal to the organization. The next issue that seems to be consistent is employee morale. Employee morale has been at all time low for a very long time. Companies are expecting longer hours and higher productivity from an already overworked workforce. Employees are becoming disenchanted with the work environment and productivity is suffering. Companies are seeking assistance from the HR team to help with tools to boost employee morale. The third area is leadership. Many organizations have been impacted over the last several years severely by scandals and fraud committed by their leadership. The lack of checks and balances allowed for many individuals in powerful positions to allow their greed to cause financial downfall of their organizations. Ethical behavior and leadership are becoming critical characteristics that organizations are reviewing more closely. Explain the ethical dilemma(s) that may arise if you use your expert knowledge of other organizational HRM strategies with the new client. The business ethics of an organization define the values of that particular business decision making process and ethical practices. Sharing knowledge from other HRM client strategies not only is unethical business practice, but does not provide a distinctive strategic plan for that organization.
