(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. A lack of understanding of cultural diversity could also lead to a lesser understanding of a potential customer/consumer market. The organization can become more
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.

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 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.

There have been a few restraints such as implementing electronic commerce. 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.

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.
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.

With these three main point in mind the ideal course used in order to fix this situation with have to go as plan. First, step is for Dave to notify upper management of this new Marco program that was developed and “tested” while relaying the message to the upper management that a lot of employees don 't feel that the money reward has equal value for the amount achieved with any new innovations. With the possibility of increasing to the money reward being settled the next step would be to make the employees feel that their jobs are secured which would be by show the company how important the work preformed by this team benefits the company and terminating anyone from this team will result in demising the company in the long run. This may result in the team being motivated. Lastly, the last step would be for Dave the manager and the programers to build a deeper communication/relationship level with each other.

Mayor Mike Spano has approved for one billion dollars to be used fix up downtown Yonkers, focusing on the riverfront, in order to attract young business men and women. The idea in itself is wonderful. Not only are they fixing up dilapidated buildings, they are also bringing in new businesses that will stimulate the economy.

By informing the public about stereotyping and the problems associated with it people can decide whether they want to participate in something that is looked down on. First and foremost the leaders of the black communities, such as musicians and professional athletes need to spread the word about stereotyping because they have the greatest impact on society. Educating blacks on the stereotypes regarding their lifestyles would allow them to make a conscious effort to behave in a way that would eliminate the stereotypes.
The civil rights movement and the right for the LGBT to marry one another are similar but also extremely different. Often we try to relate one event to another to try to heighten the importance of the current topic of debate. Doing this can often devalue the importance of a past event making it harder for the newer generations to relate to it and understand it. The reason why they are similar is because it is a group of people seeking equality that the majority of society already has. They are also similar because the group they hold ties to had no previous rights.
As our country reached the late 1800’s, Americans found themselves face to face with era known as the ‘Gilded Age’. Companies were created and grew rapidly during this time period. Some of the most famous entrepreneurs were John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, who seemed to be the perfect models for the ‘rags to riches’ story. Many people debate which entrepreneur was a better role-model. Due to his low prices, the high demand for his products, and the way he sought to eliminate any possible competition, John D. Rockefeller is clearly the better role-model for today’s entrepreneurs.
