Jenna Silver's insight:

Sheila is a bright 45-year-old who heads up the human resources department of a large corporation. She began her career at the company right out of high school, and over the years earned two college degrees while working her way up the organizational ladder.

One day, Sheila is stunned to learn that the firm is considering hiring back a former employee who years earlier, as a senior person in the company, had unsuccessfully propositioned her and made her life miserable. She had never mentioned the incident to anyone and had put it behind her when he left the company. As she looks at his resume to assess whether to recommend his hire, it’s clear to her that he has the skills to turn around a floundering, yet key, division of the company. What should she do?


1. Is the action illegal? No

2. Does the action violate any company or professional standards? Yes

3. Who is affected, and how, by the action? The person that may or may not be hired, Sheila, as well asthe other employees of the company and the company itself could all be affected.

HR - Benefits

HR - Benefits | MGT 307 Fall 2013 | Scoop.it
Jenna Silver's insight:

I have no idea where I want to work, so I decided to look for one of my favorite companies. I had a lot of trouble finding any posts on Steve Madden, so I looked up their employee benefits and found that Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs seems to be used. The company provides a range of health and insurance benefits as well paid time off/holidays, and ways for employees to treat themselves with discounts and gifts. I believe these benefits start from the bottom of the hierarchy of needs and work up to the top, level by level.
