FASTSERVE, INC. 3 FastServe, Inc. FastServe Inc., a $25 million company employing 350 personnel, specializes in direct marketing of branded sports apparel. The target audience of FastServe, Inc. is the Generation Y segment of the American population, also known as the Millennial generation. (Members of the Generation Y population are thought to be very technologically savvy, born between 1982 and 2001.) FastServe, Inc. opened up two online marketing and distribution channels known as www.fastserve4boys.com and www.fastserve4girls.com in an attempt to attract the Generation Y population to purchase their product. Ten percent of the FastServe, Inc. work force laterally moved to manage the online distribution. Upon launch of the two new websites, FastServe, Inc. experienced issues with their 3-D Drape-n-see mannequins. The Drape-n-see mannequins, attractive to the target audience, were cumbersome to download. This caused buyers to omit them from their orders making the investment less of a success. FastServe, Inc. decided to close down their online distribution department resulting in the need for downsizing and restructuring. Senior management from the Human Resources department of FastServe Inc., reporting to the Vice President of Human Resources, is responsible for downsizing the department. Senior management is responsible for implementing the decisions from upper management and ensuring the downsizing decisions are beneficial for FastServe. Additional responsibilities include minimizing risk for the company and weighing all legal implications; decisions will be communicated to the employees chosen for termination. The following five employees are candidates for termination: Brian Carter, Carl Haimes, Sara Body, Nora Manson and Jenny Mills.
