1. Would Enterprise’s approach to human resource management work in other industries?
I think that it might work in a lot of industries. Having people enter the company with a degree even if they aren’t from the top of their class still makes them eligible to do the job, and having them work their way to the top promotes a good work ethic. A lot of industries could promote job loyalty this way. Fast food industries might benefit from this type of human resource management. Any industry with a high job turn-over rate might want to give this a try and see how it would work out for them. I did a little research and found out that IBM-Daksh has a similar HRM strategy, and they are a world renowned company. If a huge company such as IBM can make this strategy work I think there is a good chance other companies could make this work in their favor.
2. Does Enterprise face any risks from its HR strategy?
Yes, but just a little bit. There is always problem’s to teaching new people the organization’s rules or strategy to work. In today’s world there is always a training session for the newcomers to tell them what they have to do and in what manner. Promoting company loyalty is also what this type of HR strategy does. Making an employee work their way up from the bottom teaches them every little thing about the company. 3. Would you want to work for Enterprise? Why or why not? I personally would not like to work for this company. I don’t think I would like to be cleaning cars after I spent thousands of dollars on getting a degree. I would like to work for a company who appreciated that fact that I took the time and dedication to finish school and I would like to be paid well for my work. Although if I barely made it through school and had bad grades I would be ok with working at a company such as this. I think it would promote a good work ethic and would promote job security, which is a huge plus in today’s economy.
