The implementation of new trends into industrial practice as well as the influence of various external and internal factors affects the operation of industrial enterprises and their performance. Industrial enterprises that have developed a sustainable human resource management strategy are able to resist negative impacts. A sustainable law strategy defines the range of options for the implementation of a sustainable human resources management strategy. A sustainable law strategy, as a base of business strategy is affecting other strategies in industrial enterprises and also it provides a framework for business sustainability as part of an ecosystem in sustainable corporate social responsibility strategy. The importance of the consistency of mentioned strategies is contained in the presented paper. Consistency of strategies ensures fair treatment of employees as a key internal factor in business success. It is important that employers treat their employees fairly, especially in the case of negative measures. The main aim of the paper is to present results of the research focused on identified discrimination and release of employees in industrial enterprises. The research sample consisted of n = 692 respondents composed of industrial enterprises employees. Among the significant results, the authors of the paper advise the finding, that a significant part of the respondents did not encounter age discrimination. The conclusion contains recommendations for the development of sustainable law strategy regarding to findings related to the release of employees and age discrimination.

Online veröffentlicht: 26 Dec 2019
Seitenbereich: 49 - 57

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The strategic goal of businesses is to secure a long-term competitive advantage, to differentiate themselves from other businesses and to succeed in the market. Corporate culture is what distinguishes an organization from others and cannot be easily imitated. Culture issues, the need for interaction and understanding are becoming an important part of business behaviour between employees and individual groups.

In the paper we present a part of the results of the research carried out within the frame of VEGA project No. 1/0348/17 „The impact of the coexistence of different generations of employees on the sustainable performance of organisations”. The aim of the project was to explore the potential of positive interaction between individual generations of employees and its use to achieve sustainable performance of organizations in the conditions of multigenerational communities. We focus on corporate culture and selected factors that influence its manifestations and formation. In the research we also found out how important the selected factors are and how individual generational groups of employees in industrial enterprises in Slovakia perceive them. The results of the research confirmed the differences in employee expectations and their fulfilment.

Successful Management of Generations

Online veröffentlicht: 26 Dec 2019
Seitenbereich: 58 - 63

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

In the management literature is often encountered with the concept of generation. For example, generation X, Y, millennia’s, and so on. In this article we are looking for an answer to what is the generation, as it is characterized from a management point of view. From the management perspective we consider the selection of those parameters that support managerial decision-making in a real situation. Therefore, they are practically applicable. In the first part we examine the correlation between the generations and Kopčaj development cycles. The second part dealt with the appropriateness of certain characteristics and parameters of generations to manage. In the third part we describe briefly the results of the survey of these parameters in the Slovak companies. Conclusions: 1. there is a very strong correlation between the generations and Kopčaj development cycles. This allows to more accurately characterize the generation, its behavior, characteristics and interaction with employers.

2. on the management characteristics of the generation (or any group) are suitable parameters such as potential, knowledge and energy measured by entropy over the conditions of stability.

3. the survey shows that for the successful integration of generation into the company it is necessary to harmonize these parameters.

The Role of Seniors in the Intergenerational Cooperaion within Organizations

Online veröffentlicht: 26 Dec 2019
Seitenbereich: 70 - 75

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

The basic objective of the paper is to show that seniors (even in the age 70+) need not be treated just as a burden or as an object of social care and health care (which is, of course, important as well), but that they can be an important production factor in the traditional meaning of the concept in economic theory and can form a valuable component of an intellectual capital in a knowledge-based society. Objective reason of the growing interest in these issues is the aging of population during the last decades (especially in developed countries) and a greater availability of highly skilled seniors, that although meet the requirements to go retired, prefer to work longer and seek in the work (similarly as during their previous active years) a way of selfactualization and a source of vital energy. Keeping employed these seniors can be also economically effective for organizations.

How Millennials Affect Corporate Culture

Online veröffentlicht: 26 Dec 2019
Seitenbereich: 76 - 83

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

Corporate culture is made by the company´s employees. However, their age composition is different and is members of different generations that interact. Every generation brings with it something new, not only positive but also negative. Therefore, each generation should work together to eliminate the negative aspects and highlight the benefits of each generation and exploit them to their advantage. Each of the generations influences the corporate culture in different ways. The aim of the paper is to point out the results of research, which was realized at Faculty of Materials Science and Technology in Trnava and focused on individual generations of employees. We draw attention especially to the Generation Z, its impact on corporate culture and the new “wind” that it brings. This paper was written on the basis of research results of VEGA project No.1/0348/17 “The impact of the coexistence of different generations of employees on the sustainable performance of organisations”.

Online veröffentlicht: 26 Dec 2019
Seitenbereich: 84 - 92

Zusammenfassung

Abstract

In the last two decades, globalization trends and the stabilization of the market economy have led to a situation where industrial enterprises are increasingly reporting a lack of skilled manpower. On the other hand, employees of industrial enterprises are increasingly facing the discrimination in finding job or career growth. The main aim of the paper is to analyse the current state of age discrimination in selected human resource management areas in the Slovak industrial enterprises. The research was carried out in the framework of the VEGA project (1/0348/17), whose questionnaire was used in the research. The research sample consisted of the Slovak industrial enterprise’s employees (n = 534). The quantitative statistical methods were used to evaluate the obtained data (pie charts, frequency histograms and the table analysis). The analyses were performed in the software SPSS from IBM and Excel from MS. The most interesting results include the finding that the most common form of age discrimination is employee selection (62) and career progression (62).
