~n urm\torul dialog, directorul general [i directorul executiv al unei fabrici nou `nfiin]ate discut\ `n cadrul unei [edin]e despre posibilitatea angaj\rii unor noi persoane `n diverse departamente: General director Our factory grows larger and larger every month. I do enjoy watching this, but Id be much happier if I knew that we had enough young managers with drive and initiative. Thats true, but some of them have no university degree. I didnt say that! Executive director I think our staff is very competitive and we wont need any new people for the next year or two. As you know, they went through management training only three months ago. Do you think their factory operation knowledge is not good enough? I hope you will agree that we need a personnel manager. Do you think we should have one? So, lets start with the personnel manager. Lets find a man with a university degree in Economics.

Leciile ncep cu un dialog sau un text sugestiv.

You know well that I have done all the recruitment together with my secretary so far. We ought to have a personnel manager, because I dont have time to do this work in the future. Why not a woman? I prefer women for personnel recruitment. They usually have better communication skills. Its not easy to find a good personnel manager these days. Do you mean a company car and so on? Thats too expensive!

O.K.! Lets employ a woman or a man, preferably with experience in personnel management. It will be easy if we offer a competitive remuneration package. Nothings too expensive if we want to grow larger. A good personnel manager means a very good staff. He or she can show people interesting career prospects and make them work better. It is worth a good salary and a company car. and an experienced chief accountant.

As you know, we are going to change our technology this year. We will need a factory manager and some new workers. Youre right. But this will take several weeks. What we should do is to start with a good recruitment system. Yes.

Do you agree to start by employing a new personnel manager? Im glad you do. Ill take care of that.

Most of it has already been analysed and we have determined the size of the potential market. As market segmentation shows, there is a large group of consumers looking for new types of cassette decks. They have almost unanimously complained that famous manufacturers as Nakamichi, Tandberg and Revox overprice their products. So, its clear, theyre looking for products at reasonable affordable prices. Yes, thats exactly what we need. It seems that our NV5 deck was born on a lucky day. Absolutely. At least, for the beginning. Later on, as demand increases, the price may go up slightly and be maintained at an acceptable high level to make it more profitable than other products of ours. Meanwhile, the sales people will maintain a permanent contact with customers trying to find out their reactions to the new deck. As you know, cassette decks are again in demand as the music industry is working hard to stop Internet-MP3 trading and all forms of digital copying.

PARTEA ~NTI

~n una dintre cele mai citite reviste economice din Statele Unite ale Americii a ap\rut urm\ torul articol referitor la situa]ia economic\ dificil\ `n care se afl\ renumita firm\ de desfacere de confec]ii ROYAL Ltd.: Possible bankruptcy? Royal Company faces uncertain future On Wednesday, Royal Ltd. will announce its annual results for this year. Once again, profits are expected to be low. Royal built its first store in 1967. It now owns ten stores in the western region of the United States. All the stores are on prime sites in the high streets of major cities. The companys head office is in San Francisco. Recently, Royals performance has been disappointing. Today, Royals share price fall under $ 7 in anticipation of the results. Two or three years ago, the share price stood at $ 10 and pre-tax profits had fallen to $ 8.3m on a turnover of $ 225m. Similarly, profits are expected to be down yet again this year. The companys profits are expected to be around $ 6m. One of the companys biggest problems is that it lacks a clear image. Some of their customers seem to prefer other stores to the Royals. Royal is facing fierce competition from Lenson and Dox Brothers. Another of Royals disadvantages is that its merchandise does not particularly appeal to younger buyers. And we think that rising costs have been the main cause of Royals low profits. Also, in an important economic broadcast, a famous economist said that a lot of companies were conservative and not used to showing social responsibility, that means to protect the environment, to offer work opportunities and appropriate sales per employee etc. and he mentioned Royal Ltd among other companies as an illustration. In contrast, the competitors marketing is more aggressive and effective. They often cut prices and even offer goods at give-away prices to get people into their stores. Their stores attract people of all ages and from all income groups. Their image make us think of profitable organizations. Moreover, they advertise heavily in local newspapers and television. Their share price stands at almost $ 12 their highest rating this year. In order to compete more effectively, Royal changed its business strategy about eighteen months ago. First, it rented space to other firms on a concessionary basis. Unfortunately, this strategy has not been too successful. Several firms that have rented space from Royal complained that their sales have fallen. Afterwards, Royals stores were redecorated. This facelift has met with mixed reactions from its customers. The layout of the stores continues to create confusion to the customers. The clients have also complained that departments are not grouped together in a logical manner. As a result, shoppers get tired looking out for the goods they want. To conclude, at present it looks very much as if Royal has lost its dynamism and sense of purpose. Investors holding shares in the company might well be advised to sell. Unless Royals management takes action soon to revive the company, then its future seems to be uncertain. Could we speak about a possible bankruptcy?
