The organisation came to me stating that they were having problems with employee retention and quality control and they did not know what was causing it. They personally have strong visions and values, but were not sure if their employees were on the same page as they were, from a SWAT analysis. The values of an organisation are the behaviours that the employees of an organisation demonstrate, or are expected to demonstrate. This consists of what are perceived to be good or bad behaviours, or traits. Strong shared values lead to a strong culture and employee retention. Values that aren’t shared are often frowned upon, and persons with different values can be looked down on or discriminated against. The vision of an organisation is the goals that the organisation wishes to achieve and which push the organisation forwards. This form’s vision is expansion and becoming one of the best and most sought-after bakery’s in New Zealand. Organisational growth breeds change. Poor management of change leads to unhappy staff and staff who don’t understand the reasons for things happening and don’t feel it is necessary. When an organisation grows, management become more detached from day to day activities. The research aim was to find how to make sure that an organisation has strong values and vision and how to maintain these throughout the growth of the organisation. Finalized results are not yet available. Questionnaires will be given to staff, interviews held with management, then observations held to assess staff. Recommendations include that change management plans and training process and tracking training be implemented.
