Most stores have been in existence for 10 or more years, and were indirectly managed by either Emerson or Wood when they were first established. Because of this stability, the estimate for the coming year‟s labor requirements is identical to the current year. So, for example, they currently have 1,200 individuals working as shift leader, and expect to need 1,200 individuals to work as shift leaders for the coming year as well.
1. Describe the internal labor market of the company in terms of job stability (staying in the same job), promotion paths and rates, transfer paths and rates, demotion paths and rates, and turnover (exit) rates.

The key to the success of any business is the strength of its staff or work force. However, to remain economical, a company's work force must be able to increase efficiency, lower staffing costs, reduce turnover and provide long term growth for the company. In order to achieve all of these goals, a company must have and implement a successful work force planning strategy. This can be difficult as many companies fail to see where there staffing short-comings lie, and therefore can not determine the best strategy for hiring, outsourcing and shifting staff positions. Since each company's staffing needs are different, a successful staffing strategy must have a broad enough outline to be applicable to any company while also being specific enough to accurately address that company's staffing needs.

1. Develop a detailed selection plan for this position. In this case, you should determine what you want to measure by analyzing KSAOs from the job description and the information on organizational culture in the case, and fitting the selection measures into the plan format as shown in Exhibit 8.2 in the book.

Wood himself mentioned in a recent interview with Business Monthly that, “Tanglewood really needs to slow down and take a hard look at our corporate culture”. He goes on by saying, “Right now, we need to consolidate and make sure we’re as close to the company’s original mission as we can be”. Taking this quote into consideration it is clear that the recent expansion increases have destroyed the relationship between the low level employees and Tanglewood.
