Living Social Escapes (Ch. 13)

Question 1: The needs of hierarchy at Social Living Escapes is that they want to have a job that they can be happy in, and also successful. The CEO of the company never really liked who she got to work with in her past job experiences and crating her own business allowed her to do just that. People are motivated by doing something that really interests them, so when employees would come up with new ideas, they had to run it by the head people to make sure it was profitable for the business. They quickly learned that it was a good idea to have the employees try new things and eventually let them try it own their own and if it didn’t work it was used as a learning step.
Question 2: According to the Equity theory, if employee guides feel underpaid/unappreciated, they are more likely to not perform to the best of their ability. People work better when they know they are used for a purpose and are understood.
Question 3: A high outcome for working for Social Living Managers is that they get to work with who they want and who are also highly qualified. Working with people you know makes a job a little easier because you are able to easily converse with others. They pay not be great, but they get to do what they love while also having a good time at…...

...mortality. However, the reduction in the mortality rate is smaller than the 22% (95% CrI, 0.70 to 0.87) reduction seen in women who are screened when they are older than 49 years of age (6, 7). In addition, the estimate of the mortality rate reduction may be affected by biases in the trials or the effects of screening after the age of 49 years. RISKS Risks of mammography include false-positive results, diagnosis of cancer that would not have become clinically evident during the patient’s lifetime, radiation exposure, false reassurance, and procedure-associated pain. Women 40 to 49 years of age may have a higher risk for a falsepositive result, and false-positive rates vary widely among several studies. Mushlin and colleagues’ meta-analysis (13) of the sensitivity and specificity of screening mammography showed false-positive rates of 0.9% and 6.5%, respectively. However, other analyses have demonstrated cumulative rates of false-positive mammograms of 38% after 10 mammograms (14) and 21% after 10 mammograms (15). Some studies show no difference in the false-positive rates between women 40 to 49 years age and those older than 49 years of age (16 –19). Outcomes associated with falsepositive screening mammograms included small increases in general anxiety and depression, anxiety specific to breast cancer, and perceived increased susceptibility to breast cancer; however, anxiety generally resolved quickly after evaluation (6). Use of mammography has been associated with......

Remember, all of Chapters 3, 5, and 9 are on it AND the SWOT we did on the Ski Shop Engagement Sheet (SWOT is found in Chapter 6, but we’re only doing the things we did in class …) Here’s a dozen to try. Don’t forget … you might see these questions again! Directions: Please read the following scenario, then answer the questions that follow.                                                                                                                                          “Managing a Ski Shop” Your best friend’s sister and brother-in-law run the local ski shop near campus in your college town, but they have recently bought another type of business in another town. They want you and your friend to take over managing the ski shop. If you run it successfully, you and your friend will gradually be given substantial equity in the shop and eventually would own the whole business. So far, the shop has been only marginally profitable. Although the shop carries ski equipment and ski clothing, it has habitually run out of both during the peak skiing season. Extra merchandise hastily ordered to meet the demand has often arrived so late that it could not be sold until the next season, if at all. In addition, the shop does very little business from March through August. Due to a dispute over the size and prominence of the outside sign displaying the shop’s......

...Latoya Harrell Cathy Whitfield Business Ethics-MGMT 368 13th January 2015 Kohlberg’s Scale On Kohlberg’s scale, I consider myself to be falling under the fifth stage of the third categorization. The third level which is post conventional morality has two stages, which is stage five which is social contracts and Individual rights and stage six: universal principles. I consider myself to be in stage five. This stage is concerned with a person’s ability to embrace and recognize the reason why differences exist in people’s values, beliefs, opinions and other inclinations of others. The level also maintains and recognizes the importance of the rule of law in maintaining order in the society (Ashford & Lortie, 2010). Kohlberg came up with a scale which he used to explain the learning of morality and the subsequent development of morality among the children and even adults. In an attempt to explain the process of morality development, he established the scale which is mainly based on learning of what is moral and what is not moral, with no regard to the actions of people. Kohlberg’s scale is divided into three main levels and each of the three levels has two stages of the process. The first level is the pre-conventional level. This level has stage one and stage two. Stage one is on obedience and punishment. Under this stage, both adults and children perceive rules as absolute and rigid. Total obedience of the rules is not a choice since it means avoidance of punishment. Stage......

...| Management Practice: Critical Analysis and Review MGMT.8001 SUBMITTED BY NILAM SANGROULA (NIEL) SUBMITTED TO Andriy Kovalenko Date of Submission: 13 April 2011 1. Introduction The article “Are vulnerable workers really protected in New Zealand?” is written by two authors namely, Danae Anderson, researcher at Work research Institute, Auckland University of Technology, NZ and Rupert Tipples, Associate Professor of Employment Relations in Faculty of Commerce at Lincoln University, Christchurch, New Zealand and is published in New Zealand Journal of Employment Relations, 39 (1): 52-67. This article is concentrated on exploring the working condition of international migrant workers and pacific workers in primary sectors and are categorised as vulnerable migrants using Sargeant and Tucker’s 2009 framework. The writers have claimed that though protective measures have been adopted to defend the vulnerability of the workers, the result is still speech making only. The article has clearly identified the research topic and used secondary sources of the information to address the research questions. The article has been successful in raising the concerns of vulnerable workers in primary sectors such as exploitation at work, underpayment, employment dependency, visa conditions, lacking of formal written contracts for employment likewise, the article has been able to pull the attention of the concerned authorities to work and rethink to promulgate the......

...MGMT 338 International Business August 26, 2012 KFC’s Radical Approach to China The Factors Behind Their Success Westernized fast food chains are steadily growing in foreign countries. Kentucky Fried Chicken is one of the leading U.S. fast food chains currently in China. There are several factors that have contributed to KFC’s rapid expansion and success in China. The story of KFC in China is one of great success on an economic level, as well as a great example of international business. There are many factors behind KFC’s success in China which include, five competitive advantages: infusing a Western brand with Chinese characteristics, expanding rapidly, developing a logistics network, training employees in service, and focusing on ownership rather than franchising. KFC is part of the Yum! Brand, which also owns Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. KFC China’s success in the international market has all been due to its five competitive advantages. The first of these advantages is infusing a Western brand with Chinese characteristics. KFC China makes sure that even though it is a US chain and restaurant it has worked hard to assimilate into the Chinese culture. They have done this by offering a variety of menu choices that cater to the local cuisine. They have also expanded their kitchens and their workforce to be able to produce and accommodate for the additional menu options. Extended families are a big part of Chinese culture; KFC China has acknowledged this by......
