Management Style Home Resources is a Team-Based Organization that focuses on a team effort rather than the individual in the hierarchical organization. The organizational structure is circular similar to the Armstrong Model. Starting out as a family company but and growing over the years to include non-family members, Home Resources continues to foster loyalty and trust by treating all associates as members of the family. The primary objective of a Team-Based Organization is to: Dramatically improve the effectiveness and competitive strength of the organization. Incorporate a total organizational approach to improving quality, productivity, profits, employee and customer satisfaction. An employees can be a member of several teams. All teams cooperate to complete multiple project tasks simultaneously.

Structure 1.Teams are divided by scope of work into Networking, Systems Development, DTP, Tech Support, Marketing and Management. All teams interact with one another. 2.Link up with other companies in the IT industry that also provide quality services or supplies. 3.Develop ICT solutions that conform to industry standards (IEEE, ISO, TIA/EIA., UL). 4.Home Resources associates gather for corporate lunches to discuss important matters and keep the communication open between Teams. 5.Schedules, time-manpower complement and other deployment considerations are planned through the Microsoft Project software. This information is provided to all project team members.
Structure The structural growth of the organizational chart is patterned after that of the Catholic Church youth cells. Starting with the Core Group, Home Resources expands its organization to accommodate large projects. Each Core Team forms smaller Specialized Teams for a particular field. Similar to the Core Group, Specialized Teams communicate and work together with other Teams to complete a project. Also just like in the Core Group, a person may belong to more than one Specialized Team. Core Group members are considered the managers of Specialized Teams.
Staff 1.To promote morale, everyone from white-collar to management is paid equally. However, salary bonuses are given based on project involvement. This encourages people to work more efficiently hand-in-hand with management. 2.Penalties for absences and under-time are waived as long as Team responsibilities are accomplished satisfactorily. 3.Certification in specialized IT courses are encouraged and funded by management. 4.Associates are given stock options in lieu of increased salaries. The greater the net income, the more they will receive. 5.Employees are given a free hand in researching and developing new technologies. 6.DSL-speed Internet access is given to everyone in the company outside office hours. 7.Employees are given allowances for traveling outside of Bacolod City.
