Introduction

There are numerous definitions pertaining to organisations. Organisations have been

termed as a place that operates merely to increase the shareholder’s equity in a professional and

effective manner. Organisations can also be defined as a place that has numerous individuals

working in it for the achievement of a single and pre-specified goal. Most of the organisations of

the world are now working on the same principles. They have the idea that without complying

with the same principals, it is not possible for them to increase their competitiveness in the

market (Brammer and Millington, 2015).

There is yet another definition pertaining to the scenario of Organisations, as according to

them organisations is a place which has numerous professionals working with them for the

achievement of a single and pre-specified goal. Most of the organisations of the world are now

trying to manage their employees, because they know that without the idea of proper

management, it is almost next to impossible for them to manage their well-being in the market.

In order to manage the companies, as well as their employees it is becoming more and more

mandatory to apply and implement the common practice of management of the employees (Cull

and Morduch, 2014). The current economic and competitive scenario has now made it

mandatory for the companies to think from out of the box to implement such practices in the

market through which they can maximise their potential accordingly. A site supervisor is the one

who have a complete knowledge and information related to their employees and their activities.

The main perspective of this assignment is to examine the clinical experience in concerning with

the Site Supervisor and then write a report pertaining to the same factor. Apparently, the report is

divided into three different sections, which are Introduction, Analysis & Discussion and

pg. 2
Conclusion. All the pertaining and important headings will be described and discussed in the

section of Analysis & Discussion.

This particular part of the assignment is very important as it likely to reflect the main

findings from the interviews. As mentioned earlier that the interviews have been conducted by

the company get a complete idea about their development and process (Margolis, et al. 2015).

The first interview was conducted from the Project Manager. It is obvious that the

position of a Project Manager is highly important for the sake of a construction project. A project

manager, apart from managing the entire project will work as an intermediary among the

organisation and the management of the school. A project management is solely responsible for

pg. 11
Incentive Plan and Implementation

After summarising the main interview aspects, there are certain things that should have

been included in the incentive plan and its core implication. From this entire analysis, it is found

that the rewards are important. The analysis has found that there are certain issues with the

company such as intrinsic rewards and extrinsic rewards (Margolis, et al. 2015).

It is important for the company to make proper team that can increase the level of

motivation in a professional and effective manner. Intrinsic rewards are the one through which

organisations can increase the level of their motivation through proper appreciation and

applauses (Ruf, et al. 2011). On the other hand, extrinsic rewards are the through which the

organisations can maximise their potential in the market. Some of the major extrinsic rewards are

high compensation, perks and fringe benefits. The company is doing an exceptional job as far as

managing is employees in a professional manner. The company is very active in providing

sufficient rewards to their employees. Apart from providing financial incentives, the company is

equally active in providing the intrinsic benefits to their employees. The employees should be

getting an idea that both of these types of benefits are highly organised for them through which

they can maximise their potential in a perfect manner. All of the selected individuals are having

sufficient experience in their capacity which would be highly efficient for them to manage the

well-being in the market. This particular implication is important for the company which can be

managed in the long run. This particular factor could be highly essential for the company through

which they can sustain their position in the market.

pg. 12
Human Resource Problem and Recommendations

Inevitably, one of the most important departments that associated with the organisations

is Human Resources Management. Apart from hiring, firing and managing the employees, the

HR department of a company is equally beneficial in making new policies through which they

can manage their employees accordingly (Ruf, et al. 2011). There are two major problems which

have been highlighted in this particular aspect which are Lower Level of Communication and

ineffective Performance Management System. In terms of having ethical aspect, it is becoming

more and more significant for the companies to manage their performance in an efficient

manner. From the case, it is found that the company is likely to build a building of school;

therefore the positions are essential for them in the long run.

In the current economic scenario, it is becoming more and more important for the

organisations to retain their employees with them for a long span of time. Proper communication

is essential for the companies to initiate the same thing. The companies which have having high

barriers in the communication are usually having different issues and problems. Therefore,

proper communication is necessary for them especially in the long run. It is important for the

company to use Management Bi Objective and Hot Desking strategy in which they give full

command and independence to their employees regarding providing sufficient opportunity to

them to increase the level of communication. Moreover, this particular strategy will enable the

employees to communicate all of their issues and problems with their managers so that they can

fulfil their objectives. The second problem is having inefficient performance management

system. The company should use sufficient and effective strategies through which they can easily

attain the objectives that set by them. Moreover, Annual Performance Review (APR) and

Performance Related Pay are some of the major strategies which they can use for the

pg. 13
enhancement of the motivation of their employees. Remember, motivation is necessary for every

organisation to execute the criteria in a perfect manner, and the company has a great chance to

execute the same thing in a professional and exceptional manner.

Conclusion

The main perspective of this assignment is to examine the clinical experience in

concerning with the Site Supervisor and then write a report pertaining to the same factor. This

entire analysis is very significant. The entire analysis has revealed that there are certain problems

that specifically associated with the company through which they can operate in the market with

proper ease and effectiveness. The company can maximise their operations by overcoming on the

challenges with proper strategies and recommendations mentioned above, and increase their

competitiveness in the same manner to maintain their assistance.
