This brilliant leadership kept the organisation going in a very smooth mood. Two* years ago, the company
launched a
new motivation programme where all the employees working with the traveling agency would be paid
their output and employees who bring in new customers would earn bonuses irrespective of their
position in the company. In this light, customers bought traveling tickets using a unique secret code belonging to
the employee who brought them in. At the end of the month, these bonuses were calculated and added to the
employee’s pay.
In addition, the company introduced the JustInTime inventory management system in the Bulu plantation and
experts to design a new production policy for the enterprise.
Just when Joy Company Limited thought everything was going on well, letters of complaints from employees
started flooding her office about the discrimination of the bonus system and the too much pressure from the JustInTime system introduced in the plantation. A few days later, a team of employees who felt marginalized drafted
letter to her announcing a strike action, if nothing was done to solve their problems. Immediately, Joy called up
meeting with all the employees to discuss on the problems and take the final decisions to solve them.
