Abstract

The scenes take place in a fictitious communications company known for this case as AB Communications. Mr Dupont, the Marketing Communications Director, is looking to recruit a communications manager. The interviews have been going on for 2 weeks and he is hoping to find the best candidate today. Susan O'Leary has cleared the first 2 preliminary interviews with an external recruitment consultant and with the human resources manager. This scenario portrays the final stage of the recruitment process. The video case study is structured to: (1) examine the challenging social and moral issues surrounding gender discrimination, in this particular case of women; (2) encourage students to pinpoint both blatant and underlying examples of discrimination; and (3) encourage discussion about how to deal with this type of discrimination in the corporate environment. The case is aimed at undergraduate business students as part of the organisational behaviour, human resources management and ethics curriculum.
