                  SEMESTER  SPRING  2013

        HUMAN RELATIONS (MGMT611)               ASSIGNMENT NO. 02

Due Date: July 11th, 2013

Marks: 20



Mr. Omer left the company when his boss refused to reward his outstanding performance with managerial responsibilities. Mr. Omer a determined and intellectual employee has been working as a customer relationship representative with Vibes, a small software firm in Karachi. At Vibes, employees are encouraged to increase and attain detailed knowledge of what they love to do. Mr. Iqbal, the President of Vibes says that, “We strongly believe in hiring of those people who have thirst of becoming a skilled worker rather managers. We compensate people who perform duties that are nearer to their actual work. Vibes provides competitive compensation package to its employees.

Vibes makes sure that every employee must contribute towards the product development by coordinating their work activities and making decisions freely. Tag-line “Experience: The Heart of Effective learning”, acts as the major benefit for employees by strengthening their resumes. Their appraisal’s major points are based on completing their actual task on time, readiness to accept difficult assignment and being creative and proactive in their actual work.

But as the number of employees was slightly increasing, the company had to ponder upon the matters which previously were ignored such as elevations to higher levels. For this purpose, company promoted few of its extraordinary employees to managerial level. In the customer relationship management department, one of the outstanding employee was delegated the responsibility of supervising the group. He was assigned to review the support system by making sure that customers are getting immediate and appropriate responses and by delivering the report of customers’ requirements to prescribed departments for abridging gaps. 

But this setup did not work out for the company. It was analyzed that this manager role was needless and so employees must keep working as a group by transferring leadership responsibilities among themselves monthly. This work setup did not create any conflicts between employees. The President said that, “When you promote one employee from a group of capable employees, it makes the rest of the employees feel stuck in the queue, causing a lock to upward movement. But as our company encourages continuous skillful learning, we are offering expansion in careers for everyone. Although we must have to think about the long term prosperity of our employees and company but, elevation may not be a reason enough right now.”


Identify the career path of Vibes? Which career advancement strategies or attitudes Vibes is focusing on to achieve the desired career path? Explain with reasons in context of the given case.

Which component of new model of career advancement is adopted by Vibes?

New model of career advancement
This lecture describes alternative model of developing our career. The suggestions in this lecture should
help the person achieve career portability, the ability to move from one employer to another when
necessary. Career advancement has acquired a shift in emphasis in recent years to accommodate the new
organizational structures. The key components of the new model of career advancement are as follows:
Career portability (components)
1. More emphasis on horizontal growth, with a focus on new learning.
Initially you used to move from lower ranks to upper ranks in an organization. This strategy has undergone
a change now. Now the emphasis is given on learning new skills instead of relying only on skills you already
have. As the change in environment help learning new things, that is why you should learn to appreciate the
change of doing different jobs in the same organization.
2. More emphasis on temporary leadership assignments.
You should realize the fact that in today's changing world; organizations give temporary assignments to
their employees. If you play the leadership role under certain circumstances; you can supposed to be play
some other role next time.
3. Climbing the ladder of self-fulfillment
Or finding work that is self-fulfilling.
4. Being promoted as much for learn-how as know-how.
(Learn-how is the capability to learn.) Learning ability is more important than present skills. Companies
prefer those employees who have the ability to learn new things. Many organizations pay their employees to
make them learn new skills. This is because present knowledge is becoming obsolete due to rapid

technological and environmental change
