As for low gearing, more profits are distributed to shareholders due to lower interest bills. However, low gearing can signify that the firm is not effective enough to compete or may have limited opportunities for
Is it just to reduce the turnover costs? It’s not only the cost incurred by a company that emphasizes the need of retaining employees but also the need to retain talented employees from getting poached. The process of employee retention will benefit an organization in the following ways: 1. The Cost of Turnover: The cost of employee turnover adds hundreds of thousands of dollars/rupees to a company's expenses. While it is difficult to fully calculate the cost of turnover (including hiring costs, training costs and productivity loss), industry experts often quote 25% of the average employee salary as a conservative estimate.
Next, are jobs low-paid because workers are low skilled and have low productivity? The fact that today’s low-wage workers in the US are more educated, with 41% having at least some college qualifications, up from 29% in 2000 implied that low-paid jobs are not attributed to low-skilled or low productivity (The New York times, March 16, 2014; Bosch, 2009). Finally, the question about whether raising wages would lead to job loss has two schools of thought which we re-visit in the later section. In the next section, we would explore the policy interventions of standard setting and programmes to help firms. The three institutions for standard settings are National Minimum Wage (NMW), collective bargaining and welfare institutions.
Gender equality gives benefits in both gender’s economic life. They increase workforce motivation and improve productivity and profitability [www.oecd.org].

As a result they are often skeptical and assume sharing economy firms are trying to make a profit by avoiding the regulations ‘traditional’ industries (i.e., taxis) face. Many sharing economy business models do raise legitimate concerns about user safety,
As the industry was developing, the companies started to offer logistics consulting information and guarantees of punctual arrival of shipments. Shipment volumes had risen 15-20% per year for the past decade. However, total revenues had risen only by 10-15% because of falling prices attributed to increased competition. The items shipped by express mail usually had high ratio of value to weight and were perishable
This is primarily due to the lack of incentives given by Apple for their suppliers to engage in CSR practices. For instance, the suppliers were offered a limited profit margin for their products which forced them to minimize their labor costs and waste disposal costs which induced labor exploitation and pollution. On top of that, limited penalty or reward were given to suppliers to encourage adoption of CSR policies. In most cases, the discovery of violations would only require the suppliers to address the problem within 90 days and no other penalty such as termination would be imposed once the violation is solved in time. Without a penalty system, the suppliers have little incentive to improve their workers’ welfare and waste management as they face no consequences for their violations.
All this leads to a smaller workforce (DJC’s 94 vs. ACC’s 396). DJC could easily replicate this US if it chooses to relocate. The product design strategy of DJC was more oriented towards making the operations more streamlined and reliable. It believed that efficient manufacturing was the basis of its competitive strategy. This is in contrast to the batch production process followed by ACC which accommodated greater customer flexibility but at the cost of efficiency with some product lines being as long as 1.5 to 2 days 4.
