MOTORS AND MORE INC.
You are hired as the HR director for the fictitious Motors and More, Inc. This business-to- business sales company manufactures small motors and accessories for industrial and home products. The industry is highly competitive and the company follows a prospector strategy.
A prospector strategy takes advantage of new markets and products. Organizational emphasis is on growth, innovation, and new product development. A prospector wants to be first to the market. To respond to competitive and rapidly changing markets, prospectors have flexible, flat, and decentralized organizational structures.
Motors and More is headquartered in a small southern town of 28,000 people, with a low unemployment rate of 3.1%. This means that demand for workers exceeds labor supply. There is a technical school and a community college within 50 miles of Motors and More. Motors and More’s president is a former military and is highly patriotic. He is committed to staying in the community. Recently, other local companies have experienced labor organizing activities.
Motors and More employs 116 people. Until you were hired, there was no HR department. Recently, the organization’s employee turnover rate has been higher than normal. The marketing and sales department continues to sell products to an expanding market. Because of this increased product demand, output must be increased by 96 percent.
In Motors and More, 88% of the employees are Caucasian. Except for one female supervisor in the customer service department, the president and all other managers are Caucasian men. Promotions have been based on seniority. Local labor market is approximately 48% minority, with a growing Hispanic and Kurdish population not fully accepted into the community.

The organization provides some skills training courses. Please refer to the organizational chart in Figure 1 for more details.

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
I got my order information wrong, can I change that?
Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.
Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?
Yes you can. Email Anna at email@example.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
