Instructions:

· This assignment is to be done individually. Carefully read the scenario below and write a 1,800-2,000 -word research report, In MS Word, double spaced, 12-point font, APA standards.

· Your case analysis must include a minimum of 12 external academic resources.

Case Scenario:

· Stacey is the vice president of HR at ‘ITFast’, a midsized IT sector company. She has called for an urgent meeting of HR department staff as nearly 100 employees had given the notice to leave the company in recent weeks.

· “This is a long list of escapees….we’re losing them faster than your people can bring them in,” she said, turning to John, the head of recruiting. “Our turnover rate is up to 35%.”

· “We are growing — in revenue, profitability, and reputation, I just don’t understand why people are leaving us fast” said Stacey.

· “I need to present these numbers to Mr. Richard Leo (CEO) at the end of the week, and I can’t do that without a theory on what’s happening and a solution to propose. That’s why I called this meeting,” said Stacey.

· “This is even surprising given that our work culture is our biggest selling point. We don’t treat our employees just as a cog in the machine, and our company and its managers — Richard included — will listen to them. That everyone at ‘ITFast’ matters.”
