“The evolution of these legal and regulatory developments reveals a landscape filled with varied and multidimensional approaches to a common imperative.” (Collins, 2012) Federal regulations prohibit discriminations against workers based on color, religious beliefs, physical disabilities or age. Ensuring our workforce understands cultural diversity will help avoid the organization suffering from any lawsuits due to discriminatory behavior.

The reason for the change in auditors is that the predecessor auditor did not have enough resources to audit the company because of the continuous growth of WWW Company. Inventory was the main assets of the company and they needed to get it right. The predecessor auditors had some few concerns and also had few disagreement with the management. The disagreement between the management and the auditors were about how management was not aggressive enough in writing off obsolete inventory. When the auditors decide to write off inventory they had to do research to prove to Williams Jr that it was best for the company to write off.

This memo is to address the current recruitment strategies and employment processes used by Baltimore City’s Fire Department. New recruitment campaign designs will also be discussed in efforts to decrease potential discrimination cases and increase a more diverse pool of candidates. The recruitment practices used prior to the hiring freeze should not be continued.

WestJet was able to remain successful amidst stiff competition from other airlines, a factor that led to other airlines trying to mimic WestJet’s culture and operations. Close competitors trying to copy WestJet’s culture would threaten their market, but Beddoe made it clear that it was impossible for the other companies to adopt their culture. Beddoe explained that it was doubtful for a company with many employees to change the mentality of everyone. From Beddoe’s statements, it is evident that the companies would have recorded lower performances due to interruptions as the companies try to adopt a new culture. The leadership of such companies would require diverting scarce resources into the culture change program.
This same thing happens in Chapter 16 when Al asks Tom what he thinks about moving forward. This shows that Ma and Tom admit that they are powerless in this situation but that it will not stop them from trying to make a reasonable living as we see later in the book California is not an ideal place however things seem to work themselves out after finding the government camp. In Chapter fourteen the reader can see that those in power are starting to get worried and try to stop the thousands of people who are determined to receive power. However, the thousands of people start to realize that if they a group of powerless people is more powerful than a powerful individual they start to find ways to succeed in California as well resist the implications put on them from the powerful

The board and the CEO, Carlos Fernandez will need to be educated on how important e-commerce is on the future of their organization and how it can sustain competitive advantage. Since there is no official e-commerce initiative, Catatech is at a disadvantage in our current business market. Also, the little disagreements between Marisa and Carlos can also slow down any chances of implementing the strategy; Carlos just wanted the Board to make
That being said, there are ways that can get the ball rolling towards the eventual goal of a world without racism. “The presence of an egalitarian African American person or white person who was friendly and appealing was enough to shift participants ' unconscious racial associations to become less negative about blacks.” (Rigoglioso) Someone might ask, what that quote has to do with fixing racism. The way that I see how this quote pertains to the effort to stop racism is that this quote gives us a formula to follow. To change someone’s opinion, you need to convince them that their first impression of the topic is not an accurate portrayal of the topic. First impressions are long-lasting.
However, the company would have been better at governance if there was a common interest between the families(McVeigh, 2015). Nepotism has also been in existence in the company when Ursula Piech became the member of the supervisory board, the shareholders questioned her qualifications and experience, but later ignored as the family has major voting rights.
