Week 04 - SECOND PART 2 Module 2: Role-play, Response, Reaction or Comment


You work for Plush

Carpets, a major carpet brand, as the Director of Recruitment. Your company has 20 showrooms around the country and your major customers include interior designers who resell the carpet they purchase to their high-wealth clients.

Your sales people, on average, have been with the company for 30 years and many will be retiring over the next 2 years.

The Vice President of Human Resources (VP of HR) has asked you to develop a recruitment strategy that results in adding 2 new account managers (sales professionals) for each showroom over the next 6 months so there is overlap and the existing account managers can train the new account managers on the products, information technology (IT) systems and standard operating procedures before members of the sales team begin to retire.

Plush Carpets' current Mission is as follows:

To provide a customer experience that can't be duplicated by the competition. This is achieved through superior customer service and quality production of any type of carpet design and size that our customers require.

Plush Carpets' Strategy is as follows:

To remain the market leader in the high-end (high $$$$) niche market indefinitely by continuously investing in technologies that improve the carpet manufacturing process and quality; to train our employees to always work as a team; and to always innovate to ensure customer satisfaction, which in turn leads to continued sales revenue and profit.

Plush Carpets' main financial goal is as follows:

Grow the company from a $250 million to a $1 billion company over the next five years. 

(The VP of HR wants to meet with you in a week to hear your recruitment strategy outline and the results of a general Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis related to the company)
