The pro is that many immigrants are entrepreneurs and tend to bring value to the economy, in which raises the GNP. However, the con is that immigrants tend to compete for unskilled jobs against unskilled citizens. That does not deny the tremendous value that immigrants, many of them entrepreneurs, bring to the economy. In fact, a hefty proportion of foreigners entering America have high levels of education and are moving directly into the nation 's suburbs and professional classes. ``The net effect of immigration is still that it raises the GNP, ' ' says Harvard economist Richard Freeman, co-author of the NBER report.
HOW DO FIRMS ENSURE INTEGRITY AND DIVERSITY IN A WORKPLACE? TERM PAPER BY JUVIN JUSTIN PEREIRA R504 PGDM (A) Introduction Diversity is generally defined as acknowledging, understanding, accepting, valuing, and celebrating differences among people with respect to age, class, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental ability, race, sexual orientation, spiritual practice, and public assistance status. The world's increasing globalization requires more interaction among people from diverse cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds than ever before. People no longer live and work in an insular marketplace; they are now part of a worldwide economy with competition coming from different parts of the planet. For this reason, profit and non-profit organizations
Diversity creates a larger pool of views and resources that companies can utilize to achieve goals. In a world where connections and personal relationships may be the most important thing, the increased diversity within a company can lead to resources we may not have otherwise. Resources can be relationships with other peers inside or outside the company. A specific example that I have encountered is when I worked for my father's business throughout high school. Although this example is not specific to the oil and gas industry it still shows the need for diversity in the workplace.
Article Summary In human resource management we learn that diversity is a strength to any organization. It allows for many cultures to come together to make an organization be available to a wider base of customers. As I read this article Sarah Fister Gale explains that there are many reasons why diversity is not always the best thing that a company could have. She explains that it is not necessarily needed within an organization because it brings a lot of friction with people from different cultures and it can cause many law suits for the organization. Gale states that although there have been a decrease in discrimination claims for companies not hiring, there has also been a rise in harassment suits from employees because other employees
Over-organization is to stress formal structure, status, rules and details excessively. While over-organization can have bountiful number of effects, a main outcome of over-organization can be stability. While discussing the advantages of the Bokanovsky Process, the Directed stated, "Bokanovsky’s Process is one of the major instruments of social stability!” (Huxley 18). Here, the Director is explaining that an advantage of the Bokanovsky Process is that is creates social stability. In the Brave New World, the Bokanovsky Process and social stability are desired because it creates a group of identical people that lack individuality, resulting in less conflicts and a stable environment since everyone is the same.
This upward pressure may be positive for workers initially, but wages have a direct impact on the profitability and competiveness of business, especially in the global economy. Batalova and Lowell (2007), stated to meet the demands of the global economy internationally oriented business depend on a workforce that is highly skilled. In the face of a shrinking workforce, business turn to immigration to satisfy their demand for these highly skilled workers. This places additional demand on these highly skilled workers from less economically developed
Cities grew larger and transportation more efficient allowing information and general goods to be delivered faster than ever before. Never had the common person been able to stay updated on world and local events. A more populated and informed public led to a better and faster paced economy. Factories produced faster and in larger quantity than ever before, and this led to public access to higher quality and even items formerly reserved for the rich. With jobs readily available and profit margins through the roof the working class had more money than ever and were able to afford these commodities.
Globalism has opened the doors of commerce, and companies have more incentive than ever to signal that they are welcoming, open, and tolerant companies. By hiring people of different beliefs, genders, and broadly speaking, backgrounds, it allows organizations to signal to customers or clients that they are companies worth doing business with. While EEO laws are in place there is still a great deal amount of prejudice and discrimination that is difficult to prove such as age discrimination in Silicon Valley which goes against EEO, but companies appear to be abusing. Google, for instance, is currently undergoing a class action lawsuit from people who are over 40 years old, and for having a youth-oriented culture, and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg infamously quipped that young software engineers are ‘better’ workers. In regards to affirmative action, I believe that as American continues to grow in prosperity, that as more time goes on, organizations may diminish these policies as the time between events like slavery and the modern day increases as it can be difficult for someone in say 2050 to say that they suffered from the consequences of slavery from 200 years ago.
On the other hand, non-financial rewards do not increase the financial pay off to the employee: “Instead of making the employee’s life better off the job [like financial rewards do], non-financial rewards emphasize making life of the job more attractive”. [ct. De Cenzo & Robbins 1994, pp.413]. These types of rewards are motivational and includes things such as better work environment, modern equipment, excursions and parking spaces. “One way to provide non-financial motivation is to provide an opportunity for job rotation. This is a great training tool so that the employee can have a better understanding of all that jobs that are done in the organisation”.
The following paper addresses the topic of diversity within a workforce on the example of Google. DeNisi and Griffin (2005, p.509) state that, ' diversity exists in a group or organization when its members differ from one another along one or more important dimensions.' . Firstly, in today’s business world, increasing emphasis has been put on this particular topic as organisations nowadays have realised that a business as a whole will be more successful hiring smart and highly skilled employees disregarding their gender, possible special needs, national background or religious believes. A workforce, that is diverse is one that is capable of getting the most out of a company in every aspect.
