Human Resource Management of Warner Bros. Entertainment - January 28th, 2011

Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc., also known as Warner Bros. Pictures or simply Warner Bros. (the often-spoken Warner Brothers is not used by the company, despite the fact that "bros." is an abbreviation of "brothers"[2]) is an American producer of film and television entertainment.

One of the major film studios, it is a subsidiary of Time Warner, with its headquarters in Burbank, California and New York City. Warner Bros. has several subsidiary companies, including Warner Bros. Studios, Warner Bros. Pictures, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Home Video, New Line Cinema, TheWB.com, and DC Comics. Warner owns half of The CW Television Network.

UK manufacturing firms employing between 60 and 1,000 employees. The results of their research indicate that bundles of HRM practices taken together explain about 18 per cent of the differences in profitability and productivity of companies in their sample. By comparison, the variable “business strategy” explained less than 3 per cent of the change in profitability and productivity. Rather surprisingly “emphasis on quality” explained less than 1 per cent of the change in profitability and productivity. Patterson et al. (1997) suggest this can be explained by the fact that the majority of firms are equally committed to quality, whereas there were wide discrepancies in the degree of commitment to HRM. The HRM variables identified by these authors as significantly related to profits and productivity were job design and “acquisition and development of employee skills”. The variable “job design” is a bundle of skill flexibility, job responsibility, job variety and use of formal teams. “Acquisition and development of employee skills” consists of a bundle of selection, induction, training and use of appraisals.


It is important to recognise that employees may demonstrate a commitment to providing quality service without being committed to the organization. For example, an exploratory study of employee turnover by Hartman and Yrie (1996) suggests that turnover of some employees (50 per cent of the sample) is a consequence of lack of opportunities for progression and training, rather than a lack of job satisfaction. Such employees can be committed to providing quality service to “their” customers, but may appear to have low organizational commitment.

A study by Peccei and Rosenthal (1998) has explored the relationship between an individual’s commitment to customer service (CCS) and a number of organizational variables in the retail food sector. They focus on behavioural manifestations of CCS, namely the extent to which individuals engage in continuous improvement on the job for the benefit of customers and exert effort on the job on behalf of customers.

In the process of human resource there has to be a key integrative mechanism, linking individuals' goals and responsibilities to the objectives of the organization and integrating appraisal, training and development to facilitate strategic fit (Storey 1992) and has been identified as a means of enhancing organizational control over employees, constructing a consistent statement of managerial expectations (Coates 1994). Formal planning is held to be an important driver in determining the employee’s commitment along with the organization in terms of adherence to its values and desired behaviors that will bring about a strong culture and be conducive to organizational success
