Mr. Toppo had just graduated from Indian Institute of Management
(IIM), Ahmedabad, and joined his family's small business, which
employs 25 semi-skilled workers. After observing Toppo during the
first week on the job his father called him in and said, "Toppo, I have a
chance to observe your working with the men and women for the past
two days and although I hate to say something but I must. You are
just too nice to people. I know they taught you human relations stuff at
the IIM but it just does not work here. I remember when the
Hawthorne Studies were first reported and everybody in the academic
field got all excited about them, but believe me, there is more to
managing people than just being nice to them".
Case study: This small and basic case on hr.. hope it helps in
1; Do you think Toppo's father understood and interpreted the Hawthorne
2; How would you react to your father's comments if you were Toppo?
