Scenario (fictional) :

The Cordis Building Works Company modifies and builds portable offices and homes based on customized plans using everything from shipping containers, to modular homes. The company has been in business 35 years and has prided itself on providing a very competitive salary and great benefits as well as retaining most of their original employees since they began. While they originally began the company doing creative designs and one of a kind housing and office buildings, much of the routine work in the factory is now done robotically. They still need a supervisor and technicians to keep the operations running as well as the construction crew who actually deliver and construct the products on site. Now the designs might be modified a bit but are already in their computer and ready to produce with some small modifications when needed. There are two main engineers, one who predominantly works on high-end mansions, and the other who predominantly works on corporate office projects back at the main offices.

The CEO and President (i.e., the husband and wife team who are the founders), are the ones that meet with prospective corporate clients and negotiate the prices and building parameters. While the company used to construct low income housing as well, the clients are now almost exclusively, wealthy private clients or corporate titans. The CEO and the company president are beginning to think about retirement. They want to keep the company running but they cannot understand why the two engineers seem unmotivated when they are receiving such competitive salaries, and great benefits with three weeks’ vacation a year. In addition, the production line has had more problems of late and the supervisor seems to be coming in late several times a week as have the technicians. They are worried about the future of the company they built.
