In this assignment on Samsung the issues that were identified from the violation case reports include the poor working conditions of the company in Brazil and a civil action lawsuit was filed against the company. The organizational policies and practices of Samsung have also been accused of violating labor laws at six factories of China. The investigative report which was published mentioned that the series unethical and brutal violations imposed a negative reputation on the company culture. It was gathered from the report that the company was also charged for physical and verbal abuse on the Chinese workers and they were forced to work more than 100 hours of overtime. All these accusations on the company have had a negative impact on the business culture of Samsung and the number of employees leaving the company has increased.
As it was mentioned throughout the report that the unity among the company has been questioned after 70 years of its inception, thus putting leadership, power and formal authority practices at stake. The need for unionization in the company will be beneficial for the organizational performance. If the CSR of the company is looked at, the elements which have a direct impact on the lives of the workers are highlighted. The factories of Samsung top the list in violating laws whether it is poor working conditions or misusing the young workers of the factory.
The prime challenges that are faced by the company in the management of human resources are new recruitment. The negative image of the company has spread to such an extent that no members are ready to work in the company. Misbehavior of the existing employees has also resulted in the loss of employees from the company. Samsung has terribly failed in the process of employee retention. With the loss of employees and lack of new recruitment, the productivity of the company is also getting damaged. They are not only suffering in the department of human resources but also in increasing sales.
The strategies will be beneficial because it will increase respect for the employees and will be able to fill the loopholes for the betterment. These strategies will help in the compensation of the charges against Samsung which will make both employees and customers happy and satisfied. Samsung can also set up a task force team which will enhance team spirit and help in an overall orientation of the company.
