Assignment Task

This assignment is a case study report.  You are asked to critically analyse the reward environment of the case firm - “Green Fingers Garden Centres”, and design a suitable reward system, which will demonstrate good practice in serving the future needs of the business, its clients and its employees. Please review the case carefully and write a report that covers the tasks attached (up to 2,000 words).

Green Fingers Garden Centres

This is a new company, set up by a group of people who worked for the biggest chains of Garden Centres in theUK, and have now decided to set up their own organisation.  They have obtained money from venture capitalist bodies, and have the ambitious aim of being one of the biggest garden centre companies in the country in the next ten years.

A number of new garden centres are being opened across the country. Initially, for the next two years at least, each garden centre will have its own autonomy in relation to a lot of human resource policies.  The centre being set up on the outskirts of Kingston will employ about 80 people when it opens in three months’ time.

As the newly appointed HR Manager, your job, amongst other things, is to put a Reward Strategy and policies in place before the first staff are recruited, so the reward strategy has to contribute to successful recruitment and selection.  The staff are expected to include a Centre Manager and two deputies, four departmental managers, a small number of administrators, 30 sales staff, team leaders, 12 kitchen and waiting staff (there will be a cafe on site), and outdoor staff, looking after plants and handling deliveries.  It is anticipated that up to a quarter of the staff will be part-time.  There are no plans to recognise trades unions.  The centre will be open from 8.00 to 6.00 pm 6 days a week, with 10. to 4.00 pm opening on Sundays.  It will be open 52 weeks of the year.

You have to prepare a report to the new central HR Director, sketching out your approach to rewards for the Kingston site.  You need to design a financial reward system for Green fingers which includes the following tasks.

  1. Analyse the reward environment and identify an overall reward strategy what will inform its reward decisions.
  2. Identify and discuss the base pay structure and other possible financial components.
  3. Justify your answer.

As you develop your report bear in mind that you will need to:

a)      Draw on the evidence reported in the case study;

b)      Be specific and justify what you propose.

c)      Explain and justify the sources of data you will need where appropriate.

d)      Consider HR as a system and therefore the practices need to be aligned and;

e)      Draw on the academic literature to support your analysis and justifications.
