(Major issues);ORGB 2008;Case Assignment LETTER;CHAPTER 14;JOBS AND THE DESIGN OF WORK;[File contains 1 case with quiz];What Employees of The Coca-Cola Company Say About Their Jobs;The Coca-Cola Company, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, produces approximately 400;beverage brands in over 200 nations around the world. It is the world's largest non-alcoholic;beverage company. In 2006, net operating revenue was just over $24 billion, up 4 percent from;the preceding year, and operating income was $6.3 billion, also up 4 percent from 2005.;The Coca-Cola Company describes itself as a local employer, with responsibility to;enable our people to tap into their full potential, working at their innovative best and representing;the diversity of the world we serve. Encouraging performance excellence by creating meaningful;and involving jobs seems to be a hallmark of Coca-Colas approach to employee motivation;throughout its global operations. According to the companys Web site, [e]ach employee of The;Coca-Cola Company helps lead our success in the beverage industry by committing to benefit;and refresh everyone who is touched by our business. Coca-Colas Web site also states, [w]hen;pride, passion and drive come together, you get the professionals of The Coca-Cola Company.;Were looking for individuals who want to make a difference, develop and inspire others, drive;innovative ideas and deliver results, and who live our values.;In recruiting prospective employees, The Coca-Cola Company encourages people to;[b]ecome one of the secret ingredients that make our company so refreshing. When the;question What are the secret ingredients that make your job at The Coca-Cola Company so;refreshing? was posed to a group of current employees, several responded with answers that;provide insight into how jobs are designed at The Coca-Cola Company. Here is what seven of;these employees said, in their own words.;Hector, Supply Chain General Management;Professionally, I feel rewarded as there are many new challenges, which allow me to;grow, learn and explore.;Joycelyn, Brand Management;Based on my background, they [recruiters and managers at The Coca-Cola Company];were convinced I had the cultural understanding and sensitivity, as well as the specific marketing;expertise, required to deliver against the Hispanic marketing departments business objectives;and goals.;Mary Page, Strategic Planning;My job at The Coca-Cola Company is to facilitate development of the strategy of a;global, Fortune 100 company. By definition, there are very few places where one can do that, and;it is fascinating. I can say without a doubt I love my job. The bar is set high at The Coca-Cola;Company. We attract the best and brightest from all over the world. I feel privileged to work with;so many smart people from such diverse backgrounds. They show me many different ways of;thinking about not only our business, but the world. Having the ability, and the willingness, to;learn from each local market to scale the best ideas globally and to capture the learnings from;less successful experiences gives us a truly unique competitive advantage. You have the;opportunity to explore, learn and grow, all within the system that is Coca-Cola.;Rebecca, Global Marketing;Our work makes people happy. We provide optimism through our brands, and we refresh;many different people every day. The work I do gives a framework that connects people around;the world. I have had an opportunity to help the Company regain its leadership position as the;most respected marketing company worldwide. My experience at The Coca-Cola Company;has probably changed my life. It has helped me develop as an individual, opened my mind to;cultures and perspectives and has exposed me to life-changing experiences.;Tor, Sales Director;There are even broader opportunities for personal and professional growth. In this;environment, I feel that it is my responsibility to take on where my passions lie. I can in fact;create my own career destiny.;Tania, Information Technology General Management;We work at a real level that connects directly with billions of people around the globe;each and every day. The ideas, the markets, the portfolio of brands and approach, its like a;small company where you can make an impact and see the difference. Its where a little gem of;an idea can and has turned into something extraordinary. The [C]ompany encourages and;supports you being fluid. You can look beyond your job description to other ideas you might;have. Youre not just doing a j-o-b. You have the freedom to innovate and execute your ideas. Its;really like a big and small company all in one.;Vikram, Strategic Growth;Ive been with The Coca-Cola Company for a short time and I can already see the;meaningful significance that The Coca-Cola Company makes in the world. Many of our products;are sold at small mom and pop stores. The margins the owners receive on our products often;impacts their ability to support their family, and gives them an opportunity to send their kids to;college. The value that we create and share is more than just providing a refreshing beverage.;We truly have global impact and are making a difference.;From a job design perspective, how would you interpret what these seven employees of;The Coca-Cola Company say about the secret ingredients that make their jobs so refreshing?;SOURCES: Coca-Cola Careers Who We Are, http://www.thecocacolacompany/careers/careers_who_we_are.html (accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola;Our Company Beliefs, http://www.thecoca-colacompany/ourcompany/ourbeliefs.html;(accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola Careers Our Company, Your Career;http://www.thecoca-colacompany/careers/index.html (accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola;Careers Meet Our People, http://www.thecoca-colacompany/careers/meet_our_people.html;(accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola Careers Meet Our People Hector, Supply;Chain General Management, http://www.thecocacolacompany/careers/meet_our_people_hector.html (accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola;Careers Meet Our People Joycelyn, Brand Management, http://www.thecocacolacompany/careers/meet_our_people_ joycelyn.html (accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola;Careers Meet Our People Mary Page, Strategic Planning, http://www.thecocacolacompany/careers/meet_our_people_ mary.html (accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola;Careers Meet Our People Rebecca, Global Marketing, http://www.thecocacolacompany/careers/meet_our_people_ rebecca_gm.html (accessed November 1, 2007), CocaCola Careers Meet Our People Tor, Sales Director, http://www.thecocacolacompany/careers/meet_our_people_ tor.html (accessed November 1, 2007), Coca-Cola;Careers Meet Our People Tania, Information Technology General Management;http://www.thecoca-colacompany/careers/meet_our_people_ tania.html (accessed November 1;2007), Coca-Cola Careers Meet Our People Vikram, Strategic Growth;http://www.thecoca-colacompany/careers/meet_our_people_ vikram.html (accessed November 1;2007).;This case was written by Michael K.
