To assist with the consultation process, we will develop a formal talent philosophy, Human Resources strategy, and a specific staffing strategy. Chern’s talent philosophy describes how employees should be treated and the expectations employees will be held to. Your talent philosophy is that employees are expected to provide top level knowledge and customer service, while attaining sales quotas. Failure to meet quota for four consecutive months will lead to a warning and an additional month of not meeting quota will result in termination. To encourage leadership behavior, employees are encouraged to meet quotas independently as a reflection of employee and departmental freedom.
