Case Study Analysis: Crisis Control


Case Study: Crisis Control

Please refer to the case study in the PDF document attached.

Write an essay that responds to these two questions:

1. What role would the HR function play in developing both a medium and long term strategy to achieve the conflicting goals of reducing costs whilst maintaining the desired level of human capital?

2. If GMS were to decide to reduce the size of the workforce, or change employment arrangements to reduce labour costs, what legal issues would need to be addressed? Is Stacey correct in saying that redundancies and layoffs would be legally justifiable?  


The question belongs to Human Resource Management and it is a case study on Global Mining Services (GMS). GMS is suffering from the worst international financial crisis in decades and the company is thinking of layoffs and downsizing. Is this a good move or a bad move? This has been discussed in detail in the solution.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
