We all have had experiences with the Disney company in one form or another – visiting its theme parks, watching its films and television programming, or even just hearing about the company in the popular press.
For this first case discussion, answer the following questions:
- Based on your own experiences with Disney (whatever form they have taken), what might you have thought about Disney’s HR practices prior to reading this week’s case study? In other words, without any knowledge of the actual HR practices, what would you have guessed they might be like?
- How have your perceptions of Disney changed since reading the case, if at all?
