4.4     Summary of Interview Results

 

The results of interviews conducted with the general and vice directors of the organization are presented in the following sections. The results are used to compare the findings of data analyzed from the questionnaire.

 

  1. What are the root causes of employee turnover at the Ethiopian Food and Drug Authority?

The majority of pharmaceutical employees are exposed to a variety of substances. Furthermore, the monthly income offered by the organization is inadequate as compared to other private institutions. Other authority inspectors working in border areas face danger in many circumstances and may not receive proper police protection. 

The authority has delivered service to local and foreign food, medicine, and medical equipment importers, distributors manufacturing organizations, NGOs, and hospitals.

 

 The customers who come to the organization to get services tell them to leave my office and join their company and get better pay and opportunities.  As a result, the majority of those employees have left the organization

  1. Are there any strategies to solve this problem?

   The authority is doing several activities, to solve the questions raised by the employees. Because the office is responsible for civil service, wage increases are not allowed; nonetheless, a draft of the guidelines has been produced and presented to the government to give alternative incentive mechanisms with additional benefits in various ways. Besides an attempt has also been made to establish a pleasant working atmosphere.

  1. Does the Ethiopian Food and Drug Authority habitually conduct exit interviews? If your response is no, please mention the reason

Yes, of course. When employees submit their resignation letters, we talk to them about what pushed them to leave their jobs consult with them on how to solve them, and make them change their ideas. 

 

 

  1. Does the organization have the habit of motivating employees based on their job performance?

This was practiced before but it was stopped due to the government's directive with the cause of extravagant outlay. However, there is a process of recognizing employees who have done different progressive work.

 

  1. How do you see the impact or consequence of this problem?

Intrinsic motivation is the pillar of success. However, the motivation style of the organization is not appropriate. this condition will have will reduce their motivation and desire to innovate and create new things and this condition will cause serious problems as a service provider organization.

 Cash budget: Advanced  The Green PLC has projected following unit sales for January 2019 to August 2019. The sales of Green PLC are 30% in cash and the remainder is on a credit for 1 month. It also expects cash receipts from its subsidiaries
worth £40,000 in March, £26,000 in April, and £27,000 in June.
The firm pays 20% in cash for all its purchases. The remaining 40% is paid in

June 800,000 450,000
July 750,000 300,000

CHAPTER 4   Long- and Short-Term Financial Planning 227

also need to pay rent of £15,000 every month. The payment for a new machinery
will be due in March for £45,000 and will be paid in cash. They have to pay interim

The firm also expects to pay dividend of £26,000 in March and receive a cash

estimate the end-of-month closing cash balances for each month, March to August.
b. The directors decide that the cash balance should be maintained at £20,000 at
any given point of time. Determine the required total financing or excess cash
balance for each month, March to August.
c. Do you think that Green PLC will need an overdraft facility for the period from
