A time study being conducted by management ultimately seems to indicate a lack of trust in their employees, and can even be taken as an insult by some. This lack of trust results in a disconnect between working class levels (that is, a class struggle) due to the creation of tension as a result of the time studies being conducted. This is why secret time studies were introduced. The difference between a normal time study and a secret time study is that in a secret time study, workers do not know they are being monitored. As expected, when workers are aware they are being monitored, the average productivity of the assembly line is increased.
Rigidity in the operation of bureaucratic systems also causes a waste of resources through duplication of duties in different areas and missed opportunities. It makes simple tasks and procedures complicated, and it eventually lacks the desired goals. Along with this problem, the American people tend to distrust the bureaucracy. This is because they feel that the bureaucracy acts too much as a business and does not properly accommodate their needs on a daily basis.
In this particular case, the organizational culture at Cole National Group was poor causing internal issue, which eventually blended over and caused poor exterior culture through this court case. One of the first things I noted was the lack of communication between management and the employees where policy and procedure for advancement and pay were concerned. Additionally if a Cole National Group is going to do performance reports, they should be part of the deciding factor in advancement, promotions, extra training, company benefits, and pay increases. Finally rewarding individuals for poor or average performance with pay raises and promotions sets a poor standard for the company and eventually will lead to losing knowledge workers and eventually customers. Cole needed to hold Leipold and Crosley to a higher standard of work as they did Vehar making the playing field fair and allowing a person to be promoted or given a raise based on merit, and ability rather than
Intergenerational issues in the workplace can cause tension between the employees and employer. Millennials feel that it is harder to grow and develop their careers in organizations because of this problem due to an absence of guidance from other generations in higher positions. Where Millennials feel lack of guidance, Baby Boomers and Generation X feel that Millennials entering the workforce are directly after their positions, therefore causing a strain on workplace relationships between employees. If intergenerational problems in the workplace continue to remain unsolved, it can and will cause disruption within the organization. Productivity can decline due to low cooperation between multigenerational employees resulting in lower efficiency and completion objectives leading to disruption within the organization.
In addition, if they cannot find supply of goods, and their products have to provide to their customers, they will face reputation risk too. The worst case is that it will break their relationship of cooperation, and it will be a vicious circle. To the customers who have larger orders, they have to pay money for these products earlier, which means they require to prepare money for them and no plan for these products’ purpose. As a result, these products will probably be put in the warehouse until the time of using them (2) If Tucker and his team do not make this decision, it will affect themselves and their shareholders, because they cannot get the target this

Of Couse, an ineffective leader only leads to making the employees to feel a instability. Harold faced the failure of not having earned but instead broke the trust of the employees. In the end, the bad comradery between Harold and the employees that was going on caused a huge gap between leader and employee resulting
Additionally, employers generally don’t treat their employees well and this reduces their enthusiasm, for instance, many frontline staff are overworked as organizations fire some of their colleagues or even refuse to hire others so that they can reduce the company’s expenses. They are also victims of low wages. Many of these frontline employees have families and expenses to take care of. When their salaries become too small to set off their debts they get stressed, are not happy and perform below the expected level of performance, and this negatively affects business growth. Some employers also deny them leave, even though such leave is an entitlement protected by labor laws and not a privilege.
• Work related stress: when employees become over stressed they tent to not be as productive as expected, it can also cause an employee to have a mental breakdown. Because of work overload employees cannot do everything expected from them which causes conflict in the workplace because production time goes lost and productivity goes down. Some stress may be caused by personal factors which may cause employees to be unhappy and take out ‘bad moods’ on co-workers. An example out of the case study is when Alex and Mandy feels that they have to work hard to prove that they are worthy of the position and title
