  9. 9. An engineering company, at Faisalabad, had a reputation for being a "good place to work". Employees were not unionized. They were rewarded for any new ideas to improve quality or cost reduction. They were also provided opportunities to conduct their own research in a specially designed workshop.Mr. Asghar was a supervisor in the Electric Motor Department. He was successful in making some improvement in the electric motor to make it energy saver. Before submitting his suggestion, he decided to try out his idea. He asked the workers to carry out the electric motor production according to the modified version. After testing about 50 motors and finding them satisfactory, he moved them to assembly area, where they would eventually become parts of automatic looms costing about Rs.1,000,000 each.His idea was appreciated and found thoroughly sound. A sum of Rs.10,000 was recommended as suggestion award. In the meanwhile, an inspector had noticed a change in the design of motor which he did not like. He was also not on good terms with Asghar whom he termed as "swollen head" and recommended for his immediate dismissal.As a chief executive, both recommendations are at your table? Which one you would accept.
