What is wrong with this picture?

CNN Money is reporting that US Manufacturing organizations are having
so much trouble finding the essential talent that they are going
abroad to find the right person for the right job at the right time. At
the same time local newspapers ran a syndicated column reporting that US
employers see nothing wrong with refusing to interview the long term

We reportedly have an unemployment issue in this
country, organizations can’t find qualified talent for their openings
and yet we forget some of the tenants of why businesses were started in
the first place. I am in the middle of reading the book “The Chocolate
Wars” which discusses the creation and mission statement of the Cadbury
Chocolate Company. They operated under the premise of the Quaker Business
Model which saw the mission of business entities to care for their
employees. we do not do that anymore.

The Quaker Business Model was grounded in the following principles:

  • The real goal for an employer is to seek for others the best life of
    which they are capable
  • Worked together towards a common goal which were in the community’s best interest.e
  • Pioneers in employee welfare and labor relations
  • Employees encouraged to get further education at company expense
  • Established medical and dental departments and pension funds

result was that they had engaged, productive employees. We were not
seeing this employee undercurrent of distrust and stress that we see in
many of today’s organizations. I hear many of my colleagues express that
we need to change Washington to a more business orientation. But what
about business once again recognizing that your employees are the life
blood of your organization. They are the ones that pursue your brand to
your customers. Take some time and think about what an organization of
dedicated engaged employees could mean to your operations?
