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 practices 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 the UK, 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 wait 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 achieve the following 2 tasks: 1. Reward strategy for Green fingers 1.1 Assess the context of reward environment and key perspectives (e.g. business drivers, internal as well as external factor that may impact on rewards…), and identify the overall reward strategy that will inform reward decisions. 1.2 Evaluate the principle of total rewards and justify whether it is appropriate for the firm. 1.3 Explain and justify the sources of data you will need to complete your reward strategy 2. Design a reward system for Green fingers 2.1 Identify the specific financial rewards you propose to introduce, including the base pay structure and other possible components. 2.2 If you are offering a total reward system, what types of non-financial rewards do you propose to include. 2.3 Be specific and justify what you propose. 2.4 Explain and justify the sources of data you will need to design the reward system. As you develop your analysis of the case study bear in mind that you will need to: a) Draw on the evidence reported in the case study; b) Consider HR as a system and therefore the practices need to be aligned and; c) Draw on the academic literature to support your analysis and justifications. Background/Context This assessment focuses on critically reflecting on the differing perspectives of reward management that take into account the external environment, workforce diversity, organizational strategy and professional ethics.
