3. Over the past few years, the profitability of Mobius Ltd has been significantly declining against the expected projections mainly due to aggressive competition and economic hardships that characterize the market. In addition, results from a recently conducted cultural/employee attitude survey indicated that Mobius Ltd employees lack cohesion, motivation, commitment. The organisation’s engagement quotient scores were below the sector benchmark of competitor organisations. During the last organisational engagement survey track action planning, staff found it challenging to engage in a meaningful manner with the action planning process. The company has a rank & file structure in place and is hierarchical in its approach.
More importantly as indicated in the engagement survey, employees at Mobius Ltd seems to have significantly low levels of job satisfaction, teamwork, trust (among themselves and the management), and expectations for future advancements (promotions and rewards).
On the same note, there was a 30% increase in pilfering of company resources as evidenced from the analysis of company data, an all-time high absenteeism rate to add to the woes of the company. The 18% increase in last year’s staff turnover is also an issue that needs to be addressed. Considering these issues, the CEO of Mobius Ltd strongly suggested that there is need for change if the company is to survive the current unforgiving market and economic trends.
This he attributed to the fact that the current culture adopted by the company was the root cause of the poor performance exhibited by the company. As such, an external party report has been necessitated by the need to identify, analyse, and solve the cultural and behavioural issues that affect Mobius Ltd.
