The interim chief executive of Imagine Hotel Group is worried about the deteriorating performance of the organisation. He has asked Linda Harris, the personnel manager, to produce a report for the board of directors that would enhance the people function at the company. He has further provided her with the necessary resources to undertake an in-depth analysis and to develop a plan of action. For the preparation of her report, Linda has come to you as an old friend and HR consultant for assistance. Your tasks are as follows:
- Conduct an analysis of the Imagine Hotel Group case study from a strategic human resource management perspective.
- On the basis of your analysis and the evidence from the case study, make recommendations for the improvement of the people function within Imagine Hotel Group
- Produce a one-page action plan for the changes that you propose to make, incorporating estimated timings and costs.
