‘Prospectors’ - organisations whom prime capability is that of finding and exploring new products and market opportunities

‘Defenders’ - organizations that stress on operational efficiency and economics of scale

‘Analyzers’ - organisations that have a certain degree of stability in business, however are on the lookout for further possible opportunities

‘Reactors’ - businesses that typically respond to market conditions

Telstra’s business strategy is that of a defender. Analysis of the HR Strategies Service and Respect
Policies encouraging mutuality and making employees [and customers] feel they are being treated with respect, they are more likely to be committed to the organisation (Huber, 1980).

Integrity and Trust
Trust represents a significant variable that influences organisational productivity. Firms exhibited higher organisational performance when trust is high amongst employees and promotes positive work attitudes [integrity] (Tzafrir, 2005).

Family responsibilities and breaks for child raising can impact on women’s ability to meet these career “ideals” and their subsequent career development and progression (Nicolson, 2005). Telstra's HR Strategy and Polices Service: Caring and responsive in the way an employee provides service to customers and colleagues.
Respect for the Individual: Treat all people with dignity and respect.
Integrity: Being honest and ethical in all dealings with others. Compliance with the law is my minimum standard.
Trust: Trusting colleagues and relying on them in order to achieve business success.
Commitment and Accountability: Do as one says and accepting accountability for one’s own actions.
Leadership and Teamwork: Strive to be a member of a champion team. Being competitive demands leadership, teamwork and collaboration.
Diversity: Promoting and embracing diversity throughout the organisation. Develop a better employer-employee relationship to continue to retain needed talent and to build a better competitive edge.

Firm performance and improved organizational outcomes can be attributed an increased level of quality in employees (including more diversity), flexibility, administrative competence and productivity, and cost efficiency (Becker, Huselid & Ulrich, 2001).

attention and for listening! Questions? Continue to move from short-term focused HR strategies to long-term focused HR strategies.

Short-term HR strategies can include flexible work staff, and the process of outsourcing are often used as HR strategies to meet fluctuating demands and growth. However these HR strateies were negatively correlated to improving quality and performance (Zheng, Rolfe & Di Milia, 2007). Recommendations
Develop a strategy to deal with downsizing and the survivors.

Downsizing often leaves a path of negativity, especially for the survivors as they are burdened with extra workload and responsibilities, change in workplace procedures and management, and are also faced with a sense of guilt (Wilkinson, 2004).

For the strategy to be successful, it must include: employee involvement, team work, clear communication channels, transparency, reward management, evaluations and appraisals, and employee support and training (Cameron, 1994).

Giving employees a better voice, which may potentially help strength the relationship with the Unions (Vernon & Brewster, 2013). Becker, B.E., Huselid, M.A., & Ulrich, D. 2001. Making HR a Strategic Asset. Financial Times, November, 2001.
