People in Business Solutions Paper 1

Motivating Employees (E) Solution

Do you think using job rotation is a better way for a manufacturing businesses to motivate employees rather than financial bonuses? Justify your answer                     [6]

Yes because it will prevents workers becoming bored doing the same task repeatedly, which could increase output.

No because they need to provide training to the 80 employees which increases cost.

Job rotation is better, as it will also give a manufacturing business more flexibility as workers will be able to do more than one job so can move to where they are needed on the production line. Bonuses will also cost more and not give the flexibility of job rotation.

Recruitment, Selection and Training (E) Solution

Do you think external recruitment is a better way for a large business to find a new Operations Manager than internal recruitment? Justify your answer.                                           [6]
