The paper "Factors Influencing Management Choices in Human Resources Management" is a perfect example of a case study on management. Baiada poultry Pty Ltd. is a private company in Australia. It is one of the leading providers of poultry products such as poultry feed, breeding stock, day-old chicken, fertile eggs, and processed chicken products (Baiada, 2017). Since 1943 the company has provided poultry products in Griffith, hunter valley as well as Tamworth in New South Wales. Nowadays the company has operation sites all over Victoria, Queensland, south, and Western Australia (Baiada, 2017).

The company has been at the forefront to provide accessible and high-quality services all over Australia. It has also contributed significantly to the government by enhancing the wellbeing and quality of life of all people in Australia. In 2016, the company had a market share of about 20 percent in Australia (Baiada, 2017). It has also been able to employ about 2,200 full-time employees in its operating centers all over Australia management (Australian competition and consumer commission, 2008). The company uses contractors to employ their workers. This means that the company uses partner managed models in their human resource practices.

As a privately-owned company, Baiada works with agreements with Fair work Ombudsman to lay down policies with their contractors for better employment relations since 2015 (Baiada, 2017). This helps in reducing employee exploitation in the company and better human resource practices are achieved. As a researcher, I engaged Baiada employees and the management to get information. The information in this report was collected from a number of employees in the company as well as the management. I have also gathered information from the company’ s website as well as published documents regarding Baiada.

Annual reports from the company as well as Australian competition and consumer commission have played a significant role in coming up with this report. There can be some limitations to the information in this report. This is because some information was not accessed due to the available restrictions. Some of the employee’ s information may also be exaggerated or not true. Other written sources failed to provide clear information. The company’ s strategic plan was also used to get information together with reports regarding the company.
