The paper 'Effective Recruiting and Selecting for the International Business - Winch-It Company " is a good example of a human resources case study.   Many organizations today operate in a global economy that is characterized by turbulent, dramatic and rapid changes. These changes have accelerated the speed at which employees carry out their work. These changes affect the way employees and organizational leaders relate throughout the change process. Most prominent changes in the global economy include diversity, networking, and flexibility (Kates& Galbraith, 2013). The economic changes such as diversity, which Winch-It is intending to engage in can create dysfunction in the organization if not well managed.
