Customer Question

Case 3.2-Elite Small Goods
Your firm, Elite Small Goods, supplies specialty food items to delicatessens in major cities. Elite operates two small food-processing plants in New York City to supply its East Coast markets. These plants use old technology in simple and labor-intensive processes. Most of the production employees have limited English-language capability and less than a high school education. However, they are loyal to the firm; turnover is less than 10 percent per year. These operators are managed by traditional supervisors who make all the decisions and issue orders. Equipment maintenance is provided by specialized tradespeople at each plant: an electrician, a boilermaker, and an engine mechanic.
Business is good enough that management is considering modernizing one of the plants. Processing would become much more efficient; with one plant doing more work than both can do together at the present time. The older plant would be closed. The new processing equipment requires sophisticated skills from production operators, including reading technical manuals, operating computers, and performing a wide variety of other tasks. The vendor suggests that the new equipment is most effective when employees are organized into self-managed teams. The modernized plant also will require two multiskilled mechanics who can be trained to maintain all aspects of the complex equipment.
Presently, combined employment at the two plants is sixty-five. The modernized plant will require only fifty-five employees. A manager who strongly favors modernization has been heard to say that “since only ten jobs are affected, the human resource implications are minimal.” The CEO has asked you to study and report on the staffing implications of the proposed plant modernization and closure. What do you do now? What information do you seek, and what use do you make of it? What type of staffing actions do you think may be necessary? What cautions might you give management?
