Unit VII Case Study
Review the case study below, and answer the questions that are provided. Provide complete and detailed responses to
each question. Your paper must be at least three pages in length.
The Closing and Relocation of a Call Center
In this case study, you are the regional human resource director for a Fortune 500 company. You receive an unexpected
visit from your vice president of human resources (VP of HR), who informs you that there is a reorganization taking place
within your company. He starts by explaining that the president of the company has decided to retire after 28 years, and the
new president has decided to move the current headquarters from the Northeast to Texas. No business reason was
provided. There will be almost 1,000 employees redeployed since the company has existed in the Northeast for more than 75 years. This information will be released to employees within the next week. The call center—with more than 500
employees, including your office that is located within it—will also be relocated to another southern state. All employees will
be offered their current positions and a relocation package if they wish to move. Those who do not want to relocate will be
given a severance package with outplacement services provided.
Mr. Davis, your VP of HR, is aware that you hired most of the individuals working in the call center and that you are very
familiar with the culture and employee status. This news will be devastating to the employees because they have made this
the most productive and efficient call center within this global corporation. Mr. Davis came to get your advice on how to best
handle the communications plan for announcing this news in your region.
Mr. Davis has taken care of notifications to the state and federal government (i.e., the 60-day notice required according to
the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification [WARN] Act, which announces that the business is relocating and that
employees will be redeployed). From previous experience, Mr. Davis shares with you that you will be contacted by the state
to set up meetings so that the state may address all of the employees concerning the state benefits and services available
to the employees.
Mr. Davis shares two important messages from the new president: (1) Although this news may be unsettling to many
employees, business must be conducted in the same professional manner as always, with the least amount of disruption;
and (2) whether the employees decide to relocate or not, while they are employed, they must maintain productivity levels,
and their metrics will be monitored as usual.
Mr. Davis informs you that Mr. Woods, senior vice president (SVP) of the region, who is responsible for the call center, is
being told of this reorganization via a conference call with his boss on the West Coast and the president of the company.
Mr. Woods will be joining you and Mr. Davis to plan the communications shortly. Mr. Davis wants to get a head start on
planning with you because he has a flight scheduled back to headquarters that afternoon.
You begin to outline a plan for the communications strategy; for example, you include information that will assist Mr. Woods
in preparation for his meeting with his direct reports where he will deliver the news. Other questions you think about during
the development of the outline are as follows: What information will Mr. Woods give to his direct reports this afternoon, and
what will he give them to share with their managers and employees? Mr. Davis sees your outline, and he encourages you to
develop your outline into a communication plan/plan of action and to continue to share it with Mr. Woods.
Before Mr. Davis leaves for the airport, he asks you to report back to him with any issues or difficulties you are experiencing
with employees. Mr. Davis also asks that you report the following information to him: How many employees do you think will
want to relocate? What do they want to know about the new location? What can he do to help answer these questions for
the employees? What can he do to assist you with the communication plan or any activities you plan within the next 60-day
period? Mr. Davis gives you all of his contact numbers and reminds you that he is available to you for questions and
concerns at any time.
Analyze the information presented in this case study, present your communication plan, and answer the questions below.
Your case study paper should be at least three pages in length and should follow APA guidelines.
Your communication plan should address the following questions:
What are your concerns? For example, how will you motivate the employees to stay throughout the 60 days if they have
other job offers? How will you motivate all employees to maintain their productivity levels?
In the article “Semper Fidelis! A Recipe for Leading Others,” which is part of your Required Reading for this unit, Aubrey
Daniels describes how a person earns leadership status and explains the importance of positive reinforcement. How will
your plan help you to establish yourself as a positive reinforcer?
What leadership style does Mr. Davis exhibit?
Propose at least three leadership theories that could be applied to this situation. How will these theories advance or
affect employee motivation?
You are required to incorporate information from at least three sources in the required reading for the unit as well as two
additional sources in your response. All sources used must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have
accompanying citations and references. Your paper should be formatted in APA style to include a title page and reference
