Matthewman (2011) also stresses on the importance of motivation and relationship building activities towards them. The paper is precise in identifying the major components which attribute to job satisfaction and provides extensive information on the many dimensions. However, the information presented is only dependent on USA, Japan and Germany findings and may not be fully representative. Article 8 Evaluation: The implications of the aging workforce on skill needs are highlighted in this paper, specifically in terms of computing, customer care as well as teamwork
Cultural diversity in the workforce is far to importance to give up so quickly. Specifically, Durbin (2010) examines many studies that have shown the value diversity has on an organizations bottom line. Two advantages mentioned by Durbin (2010) were “multicultural decision makers have an advantage in reaching a multicultural market” and “people from culturally diverse groups prefer to buy from a company with a good reputation for managing diversity” (pg. 412-413). I would argue that these two aspects are too valuable to consider removing Erin from this position so early.
The prime responsibility for managing and implementing diversity and equal opportunity at workplace is the major responsibility of the employer. Managing diversity is linked with Human resource management practices in order to recognise its importance and help in addressing the issue of inequality prevailing within business environment (Wilson, 1999). Managing diversity on the other hand embraces methods, approaches, practices and policies at a level that goes beyond and within an organisation. According to Huxham & Vangen (2013), business case for managing equality and workplace diversity must recognise the complexity and relationship between the organisations. Thus, the socio-economic dimension is vital for understanding the communication of range of interests and how managing diversity can improve organisational efficiency (Bratton & Gold, 2012, pp 56).
Lean six Sigma methodologies is Preferred over Lean or Six Sigma or any other continuous improvement methodologies are implementing in industries. By considering all segments like critical success factors and also taking the sufficient training (Yellow belt, Green belt, Black belt, Master Black belt and champion) based on the projects (industries) requirements. Lean Six Sigma is an approach that learns from past failures, one of them is insufficient support of management. In organizations where Lean Six Sigma has an emphasis on improvement, this starts with top management. Focus on customers, processes, employees characterize the Lean Six Sigma as a method of building and developing a new corporate culture and providing organizations with a tool for a competitive advantage.
This advanced taxonomy opens new scenarios in operations management by providing an alternative view to scholars and managers. Operations management will require a shift in focus towards how the firm relates its own operations to the resources and processes of the other parties involved on the firm’s boundaries. Past studies traditionally only focus on the relationships with the parties at the beginning, the suppliers, and at the end, the customers, of operations. This study leads to analysing all potential parties involved in boundary operations (La Rocca & Snehota, 2014). The focus on the firm’s boundaries suggests that operations success depends on the ability to design and manage operations in a wider perspective, continuously rethinking internal and external activities to identify new potential integration and coordination solutions between value chains and external
The Organizational Citizenship Behavior has been usually used as a predictor of many variables especially involving in any workplace setting. Some of it is: Charismatic Leadership and Organizational Citizenship Behavior by Zehir et al (2014) ,Organizational Citizenship Behavior and leadership and employee readiness by Lou and Liu (2014) ,regarding Organizational Citizenship Behavior and Ethical Leadership by Lu (2014). However, Organizational Citizenship Behavior may be one of the most truthful predictors of some of the variables stated above; however, there are not enough variables in what predicts Organizational Citizenship Behavior. In a commercial or office setting Organizational Citizenship Behavior (OCB) is being used to size the efficiency of an employee. In this age, organizations need to restructure, and need individuals who are enthusiastic to donate to successful change and leaders who can successfully bring about change.
It is essential for an organization to advertise jobs on multiple platforms so that a large number of talented and diversified candidates could gather. There is no inclusiveness in diversity, but multiculturalism makes sure that workforce should be inclusive (S. K Reddy, 2014). The strategic HRM performs many functions in an organization; it is also the responsibility of the HRM to assess the behavior of the workforce to establish that, the employees give importance to diversity and working with other employees for achieving the set objectives of the organization (Namita Rajput, 2017). Discrimination is the primary challenge faced by the many organization during the procedure of recruiting the diverse workers. There is an excellent chance that
The respondents will be coming from the different BPO companies located in Makati and Alabang. The main gathering instrument will be a validated self-made survey questionnaire. Moreover, data gathered will be used to assess the effectiveness of career interventions the respondents have received. Significance of the Study Job mismatch is considered as one of the pressing problems an economy should address (Colina-IV, 2014) and with this, the researchers seeks to impart additional information that will be beneficial to the
It offers a real chance to review and revise what equal opportunities is supposed to be about and how a positive change can be brought about in the workplace that benefits all. In this essay I talked about managing diversity, what it means and how it is more than just a ‘business orientated catch phrase for employers’. The differences between equal opportunities and managing diversity was discussed as well as the importance of justice and how it is a main concern and outcome for managing diversity. However the question still remains will many organizations implement this management philosophy or will they use the term ‘managing diversity’ for the appeal rather than the benefits? An organization that implements this and takes care of the social wellbeing of their employees will automatically see the differences and notice that justice is of high priority just as much as utility is, as ethical and moral business cannot be managed without doing so.
From the Meta analysis, they suggested that diversity is a mixed blessing and requires careful and sustained attention to be a positive force in enhancing performance. Also added (O’reilly, Williams and Barsade, 1997) for groups to perform successfully they must have both the ability to develop creative solutions and to implement or execute these ideas. Williams and O’reilly (1998) recommended strongly that understanding negative effects might provide a solution for its more pernicious effect. Takeuchi and Duriau (2000) studied the internal and external fit of multicultural teams within multinational corporations. The model focuses on two different types of contingencies, the “external” fit between MNC strategy and team diversity and the “internal” fit between team task and team diversity.
