I submitted this proposal to modify our labor structure to increase the level of responsibility for our mid-level workers' so that we can fill the leadership gap that exists between our senior level workers and our incoming freshman. In the past, our department would promote a few workers to the senior level based upon merit and we'd assign projects and tasks to our mid level workers that didn't really engage them. This created a retention gap and we lost a lot of experienced workers as a result. And we often found that our senior level workers struggled so much to find a balance learning how to juggle all of their new responsibilities that they often neglected our mid level workers and didn't have the social or leadership skills to connect with our freshman workers. The intent of the new structure is outlined within the proposal to address some of those issues now that we have a more experienced mid level staff who has enough proficiency to move on toward the senior level. The modifications were designed to overcome the group dysfunctions found in many organizations outline by Bruce Tuckman's model. The good news is that many of the ideas in this proposal were accepted and approved and we will be adopting most of the new student labor structure for the upcoming academic school year.
