This case is about a man named Carl. He works for ABC Inc. He hired 15 new applicants. There was a list of tasks that he was given to complete for the new trainee orientation by June 15. Since he was new to his job and unexperienced, he was unsure of how to handle making sure the pre-employment paper work and screenings were complete. Checking to make sure that all the supplies needed were available and that the conference room wasn’t booked for the same time that he needed.
What problems appear in this Case:
In this particular case, there are multiple problems. First, there is the fact that Carl took on a big task without much experience under him. He didn’t plan ahead in case something happened. He scheduled orientation without making sure everything was ready to have an orientation. None of the applicants can go to a new hire orientation without completing the application process or a drug screen. He didn’t even make sure the training room was available be reserving it. Carl didn’t check to see if he needed to order new manuals. He assumed that the company had enough on hand. When he checked there was only 3 and each of them had numerous pages missing.

If he would have asked for help, he most likely would have received it and it would not have been stressful. In reality though, he did not ask for help. Carl should have planned ahead by making a list of things that needed to get done by what was most important first.

Then he needs to call all the new hires and explain to them that they must get their pre-employment paperwork and screening done to be able to attend the training. If they cannot be reached then Carl should leave a message and explain that they need to contact...
