Subject – Decision report after evaluating the options available for recruitment of the General shift in-charge. Dear members,
Please find enclosed a detailed report on the current situation in the Sparkling Glass Limited and the evaluation of the options available for the post of General shift in-charge, recommendation and the action plan. It is recommended to promote Mr. Panjabi as the new General shift in-charge at Sparkling glass limited. Regards
Ashok who is the person in-charge of general shift is retiring; there is a need to appoint a new person in his place. It has to be either one of the four shift in-charges-Khanna, Panjabi, Gupta and Gulati or request the head office to recruit a new person or give an extension to Ashok. Recommendation for this would be Mr. Panjabi.
Panjabi would be the right person as he has an experience of twelve years in the company, which has helped him earn respect among the workers and have a strong influence on the unions. He is good at training workers, which implies that he has good floor knowledge. He also has enough practical knowledge required for the General Shift in-charge position.

As Ashok is retiring, a replacement is required to take up his place in the organization and the candidates for the same are: Khanna, Panjabi, Gupta and Gulati. The major skill sets required for the job would be knowledge about production planning, scheduling, costing and people skills. These skills are to be possessed in a person, for him to perform efficiently in the workplace. Khanna is the most qualified among all the candidates and has been working with the Company for the last three years. He also has excellent communication skills and is good in solving problems on the customer side. The issue with Khanna is that, of late there has been a decline in his performance and he cites marriage as a reason for that. He also says that he wants to work in a general shift as he is doing a course on Production Planning and management in the evening, but this contradicts with his earlier said statement of not being able to put in extra hours citing marriage as a reason, thus reliability could be a problem. Also his relations with the employees are not good and he again blames the employees and the workers for the same, but this is one of the most important factors that would be required for the position of General shift in-charge. Panjabi has an experience of twelve years with the company. He has very good relations with the employees and is also respected by the workers. Also he seems to be the most loyal and trusted employee in the company. The only problem with Panjabi is that he does not have any formal training in production planning, but he claims that it would not be a problem and if required he can pick up those skills easily. He also had helped a lot of workers by training them, including Mr. Prasad for a brief period of time. Which implies that he has good floor knowledge. Gupta is a Glass Technologist and has been with the company for the last three years. He has been doing departmental planning and so can be concluded that he has enough experience in planning. He as well claims that even without adequate training from Ashok, he has been picking up the intricacies of the job pretty well. The issue regarding him is that he has been involved in the desk job and interactions with the employees have been minimum...
