6: Icon International has acquired a new company. Although Icon has assured the new company that it will retain all employees working there, employees are still not very sure about their position. To bring about synchronization in the working style between Icon and the acquired company, Icon has decided to implement its policies and standards in the new company.

You are the HR Manager at Icon International who has been assigned the task of making employees aware of these standards. You need to make them understand that these standards are not meant to impede their working environment but will make their work smoother and easier.

One student will act as the HR Manager, while the rest of the class will form three groups. These groups will act as experts and suggest methods to implement the new policies and standards in a smooth way. The HR Manager will list the methods suggested by the expert groups on the whiteboard. Then, the volunteer will analyze the methods to decide on the best one. The HR Manager can question the experts regarding the methods suggested by them. Finally, the HR Manager needs to choose a method to implement and give reasons for choosing it.
