You are contracted by airlines to perform quick cleanups on
planes between flights, as well as more extensive cleanings
while planes are parked overnight. The airline industry is
facing financial pressures and these pressures have trickled
down to you. The airlines are having their planes cleaned less
often and, as a result, they are dirtier when they are cleaned. It
also seems like passengers are increasingly likely to leave
really gross stuff behind.
The work is difficult. Your employees have not received raises
in some time, and it likely that they won’t receive raises in the
near future. The employees, individually and as a group, are
quite open about not liking their jobs. Your managers are
placing pressure on you to make the employees more
productive. You subscribe to the theory that workers who are
more satisfied with their jobs are more productive. You cannot
give the employees raises, but you do have a very limited
amount of discretionary funds. What can you do to increase the
workers’ level of job satisfaction? Provide five specific steps
you could take. (Points : 45)
