In organizations today, the emphasis is on performance and the contribution of a function to the success of that organization. Senior managers demand evidence of effectiveness and efficiency. They need objective ways to measure achievement and strategically plan for the future. The heart of success at BANKS Industries is the HR department’s responsibility to guide managers in their ability to screen, hire, and retain quality employees.

- What should be the basis of the HR department’s goals regarding their responsibilities to support management during the screening, hiring, and retention stages of employees?
- How do these goals strategically align with success for BANKS?
- How should the HR department interact with and implement these goals for management and employees?
- How will you measure whether the HR department has been successful in achieving its goals? Based on your research, what assessments can be used to determine success?

|BANKS would like to thank everyone for an excellent quarter following the completion of our merger with our partners in China. While there is still a lot to do, things are starting to fall into place and our new, bigger team is moving forward with some great product innovations and promising endeavors.
As you are aware, while we have a substantially diverse employee population in our home office, the addition of an international team has greatly increased the representation among employees. As we continue to operate, it is important to consider that our cultural values play a strong role in how we each function, and we are likely to encounter differences in how we communicate, interpret information, approach our workday, and many other aspects of work. We value human differences and believe they make us stronger as an organization. However, they can cause significant challenges in how we function on a daily basis.
While this will create challenges, it will also bring opportunities. We are a people-based organization. Without our employees, we have no product or service. This is true for virtually any organization in existence today.
Remember that we are here to work with you and support your efforts to make BANKS successful. The strategic partnership between the human resources (HR) department and management is critical in ensuring that we are well equipped to face current and future challenges, embracing our diversity as we move forward.
