Upon further discussion, they determined the cause was likely due to the high turnover of quality employees. Exit interview notes indicate the majority of the people who voluntarily left the company for better opportunities were women or minorities. Most of the women expressed their displeasure with inappropriate behavior of men on the shop floor, citing instances of "off-color jokes and innuendos." Further discussions among human resources professionals and company management indicate managers and supervisors are uneducated on issues of diversity, respect and equal opportunity. The company's human resources department must focus on specific employment laws and regulations to meet the owner’s specified tasks of keeping them staffed up and out of
It also highlights that there is inequality in the field of work between women and men. A man can easily get married, have children and be successful in his job, but when it comes to a woman everyone around her forces her to quit. The majority puts obstacles in the way of women in order to fail. They fear what a woman can do with her intelligence and creativity and try to bring her down. Societies do not accept the idea of women being successful in their life and feel that women are a threat.
The main human resource issues regarding the ERP migration failure are addressed are as follows; • “Analysts expressed a variety of perspectives one of them being that the recent change in the company’s culture may not have allowed for active involvement of all employees and when problems surfaced they became substantially more difficult to overcome”. (Chaturvedi 2005) • When employees made suggestions they were ignored by upper management. One idea they had was to implement a backup system to overcome ERP system failure risks but management didn’t listen. • There was a high attrition rate. For example many vice presidents including those in the enterprise service and storage division left the company to work for rival firms.
Some may argue that “...record numbers of women are serving in government” (Women's Rights and Sexual Harassment: Are Further Steps Necessary to Ensure Gender Equality? ), but it has been stated by “Women Won’t have Equality for 100 Years” that the United States female representation in government has dropped to the lowest proportion in 10 years, as “only 27% of all jobs within the Trump administration were taken by women.” This reveals that Women are not being given equal opportunities as employed men, and it causes many problems due to a bias from higher authorities. Overall, gender equality laws should be pushed to be inducted because feminism has a vast impact on women and their daily lives, which allows them to feel
Those differences are not easily dismissed… however those differences do not condone gender discrimination in society, and certainly not in the workplace.” (Malkin, 2005) Women mostly have unequal access to health services and education, face glass ceiling at work place. Social customs that force or encourage girls into early child bearing and teenage marriages have dangerous and direct consequences for their health. There are much high levels of brutality and violence against women almost in all nations around the world. This could be among their families where it is treated a normal custom. Violence, in the span of armed conflict, is used to humiliate the rivals and also to undermine resistance and
Wal-Mart has faced numerous lawsuits for inequitable labor. The huge market enterprise values its employees with little respect. For example, it demands for long hours and overtime shifts to meet holiday sales. This is one of the reasons why the company has earned an outstanding profit over the decade. Yet, with all the affluence the company has, it still does not compensate for workers' healthcare benefits nor their low wages.
Why or why not? For the interest of the organization and the investor’s money, I would definitely weed out incompetent employees because keeping incompetent employees in the organization will only result in loss for the company in terms of extra resources being used with no effective development. But as a CEO of a reputed company, I will have certain responsibilities towards the employees and the society in general. Sudden termination of an employee or asking workers to leave the organization and quit the job will only scare the employees as they will have no feeling of job security and therefore the feeling of fear of failure and hence the fear of losing the job will prevent the talented employees from coming forward and give new ideas and suggestions. Instead of a sudden job termination, I prefer to adopt a little smoother procedure of weeding out the incompetent employees by understanding their problems and issues with their work, understanding their strengths and weaknesses and then accordingly offer them extra training and extended time and further communicate to them about the consequences of not being a competent employee.

The whole business depends on the owner or the few managers which makes the management significantly important for the company . This centralization of decision making into a narrow chain of command strains heavily the management and can lead to the risk of neglecting managerial responsibilities that can 't be delegated which can lead to "scape-goating" in situations of unsuccessful activities. Usually, the owners of SMEs are experts in their field. In many situations letting the decision making to handful people can be a factor of success for the company and this arises the importance of the managerial behavior for SMEs. -Reflected owner culture and objectives In most SMEs, the owner is the one who gives the instructions to the employees which provides a better overview, creates a personal trust relationship between employees and owner and motivates the employees as they responsibilities are rarely limited to individual functions.
