Case Study

The overwhelming work load that Harper has to deal with is the most demotivating part of her job. She enjoys the work but in moderation. By having so much to do she can’t balance her personal life and its causing her to no longer enjoy the work. As and HR manager I would recommend David try to make himself more available to his team so they can reach out if necessary. I would then advise him to review the workload that each teammate has and either delegate the tasks so that everyone has an equal workload. If everyone seems to be overwhelmed I would advise David to scheduled the projects in a manner that allows the team to target one goal at a time. A downside of losing Harper would be the tam will have one less person with extensive experience and knowledge of the company. Also if Harper leave the company a portion of the workload wouldn’t get completed and another employee may become just as overwhelmed.


Ethisphere is a leading global research firm that devotes its efforts to identifying and upholding the highest standards of ethical practices by companies. Ethisphere focuses on environmental sustainability, philanthropy, and many other procedures. Kelloggs’ has been recognized as one the most globally ethical and sustainable companies worldwide for almost fifteen years. Through Kelloggs’ work, billions of people across six continents have been reached and supported in the worldwide hunger crisis.
Since 2007 Kelloggs’ has devoted its time to mainly using recycled material in their packaging. As of 2020, 76% of their packaging is made of recycled or biodegradable matter, but their goal is to be 100% by 2025. Over the last seven years, they’ve reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by over 20%. Overall, they are decreasing their annual carbon footprint and leading them closer to their goal of not participating in deforestation. Another reason Kelloggs is recognized as ethical is because of its philanthropic work. The global food company has donated over 2 Billion servings of food, reaching over 3 million children worldwide.
One practice I’d recommend Kelloggs implement to become even more sustainable is locally sourcing their ingredients from areas where they manufacture their food. If they’re located in places that aren’t rich in agriculture, they could start new farms. This will reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, but it will help regulate their food waste and provide employment to the people who live in nearby communities.
