...deviant salaries, FastCat should instate adjustments, followed by a total compensation package implementation. These decisions should yield the lowest voluntary turnover. Red and Green Circle Employees According to our initial grades and ranges, some employees needed to be adjusted (Appendix 3.1). Green circle employees were adjusted to the appropriate grade were kept at the same pay as long as they were within range; if employees were not in range, then the individuals performance was evaluated and pay changes were made accordingly with higher, more valuable, long term performers receiving a higher increase. Our green circle employees deviated from our expected structure and JE points needed to be adjusted. For example, Senior Fellow, one of FastCat’s most vital positions, was only valued at 285 initially; the position has been adjusted to 420 to reflect its importance and correct the implied deviant salary. Individuals with positions that are highly valued at FastCat need to be rewarded (Appendix 3.1.1). Individuals in this position operate with the economic theory in mind and are expected to be the leaders and their decisions perpetuate FastCat’s success. Red circle employees’ salaries were lowered accordingly. Upon evaluating the jobs, some were trivial; these positions have had salary deductions. For example, jobs that required only a high school diploma or an associate degree were being paid above the industry standard. More extensive cuts were made for......

One Genre Fits All?

...One genre fits all? Whether you prefer a romance, an action or a thriller, Science Fiction seems to fit it all in but still have its own unique identity. Is this why it appeals to so many? As Reported By ReJohnson. Looking around at movie advertisements shown on billboards, bus stands and television, it’s hard to miss the growing popularity of science fiction movies and books in modern society.

It seems that in modern society, no matter how you look at it, Science fiction is a genre that can appeal to each individuals taste making it appealing to almost anyone. Though it is mainly based around an imagined future and scientific and technological advances, directors and producers have created a scale as to how ‘hard’ or ‘soft’ the science fiction movie is.

Due date: 6 November 2013 Leadership & People: Tutor: XXX Prepared by: Stephanie Gartrell Student ID: XXX Due date: 6 November 2013 Leadership & People: Tutor: XXX Prepared by: Stephanie Gartrell Student ID: XXX Executive Summary Designing and implementing a compensation package that rewards all staff according to performance, and succeeds in appealing to their individual motivations is an enormous challenge for any organisation. Some find it easier to simply pay a percentage increase to all staff, irrespective of their performance. A literature review was undertaken to determine both the current and historical views of performance management. A vast amount of material has been written in journal articles and textbooks. All point to the complexity of the issue and the apparent inability to find a solution that will suit all. For the last 100 years, HR specialists, psychologists and economists have been collaborating to try and develop a system which would have broad appeal for both staff and employers. Many theorists contributed to the discussions, asserting that individual motivations for pay were based on the theory of agency, goal, control, expectancy, or reinforcement. Performance management systems are necessary to enable companies to enable them to attract, retain......

Arrow Electronics

...John Santoro Arrow Electronics Arrow Electronics (AE) is a $6.5B, broad-line distributor of electronic parts, including semiconductors and passive components. It was founded in 1935, and grown to the number two position, largely through acquisition. Arrow / Schweber (AS), a division of AE, provides semiconductors, components, value added services and has sales of ~$2B. Their closest competitor trails by more than 20% but grew 14% in the previous year compared to 10% for AS. The major customer segments for AS is 56% small and mid-sized OEMs, 20% contract manufacturers, 11% who purchased the x86 Intel chip only and the balance are customers who purchase entire systems or assemblies. The situation AS has been approached by Express Parts, a new, independent distributor, that has developed an internet-based trading system that would allow for customers to cross-reference equivalent parts from multiple manufacturers based either on part number or technical description. Express estimates that over 50,000 OEMs would have access to their system. For their services, they will charge of fee of 6% and pay 30 days after a shipment is made. Jan Salsgiver, president of AS, has to decide whether or not to accept Express’s offer. Alternatives and pros/cons Option 1 is to accept the Express offer. This would allow the potential to significantly increase sales through the additional exposure AS would receive. This is particularly thought provoking as Express only wants...

Multicultural vs One Size Fits All

...campaign for a new product. As said in the Journal of Consumer Marketing, “Products considered to be legitimate when targeting one group, may not be perceived as being socially responsible when targeting other sensitive groups” (Macchiette & Roy, 1995). For example, animal fur is considered a sign of wealth in some cultures, but will result in a negative opinion from other consumers such as animal activists. Marketers who do not consider all cultures and beliefs when developing a promotion will provoke boycotting of products and ethnical controversy among consumers, which in turn will result in a negative public image for the brand. Attaining appropriate research and understanding all diverse ethnic groups prior to promotion will protect a brand’s equity and alleviate the possibility of becoming a boycotted or “damned brand” (Macchiette & Roy, 1995). Marketers who have extensive knowledge of the multicultural society will also build better relationships with consumers. “Knowing more about your customers and how to communicate with them in culturally appropriate ways with regional and even neighborhood nuances can make a big difference” (Rogers, 2013). Using data research, marketers are able to analyze consumers’ wants and needs right down to the household level, allowing brands to customize products for specific target groups. For example, one study has shown that Hispanics are more inclined to use fragrances in their homes. As a result to this research, Proctor and......

Arrow Electronics

...The Arrow/Schweber (A/S) group is a large-scale distributor of electronic components from a multitude of suppliers. The A/S group’s main clientele are medium and small original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) that require various semiconductor and electronic mechanisms, some with value added components. With its rapid acceleration as the leader in electronic distributors, Arrow has secured a large customer base with $6.5 billion in sales in 1996. Jan Salsgiver, president of the Arrow/Schweber group is required to make a decision about whether or not to implement an Internet based channel named Express to sell these components. Express would allow current customers and potential customers to shop for the best price while simultaneously having access to up-to-the-minute inventories. Moreover, distributors would be able to post their inventories and prices, which would give both small and large-scale buyers the opportunity to shop for the best prices. Since most large-scale suppliers such as Intel and Motorola deal directly with very large OEMs, these suppliers count of various distributors to meet the needs of the remaining customers that the suppler is not able to serve. Various suppliers utilize A/S to sell their standardized and propriety products. A/S main customer base of small or mid sized OEMs accounted for over 55% of its sales in 1996. Since these firms were too small for the suppliers to serve directly and since many required value added services and programming,......

...Activity 2.6 – Aerodynamics on Arrow Arrow would be my aerodynamic example. Its has a very long history, we can start from the stone age till present. Arrow from back then was made by bones or stones for the head (projectile point) and wood or bamboo for the body (shaft). Now, we have tungsten or stainless steel for the projectile point and aluminum or carbon fibre reinforced plastic or composite for the shaft. The evolution of the entire piece of arrow had changed so much, etc from the head, body to the end, every part of it had streamlined with the science of aerodynamic, to attain the expectations of being fast, far and accurate. The aerodynamic of it would be the whole piece, projectile point to cut thru the wind, aerofoil body to assist to travel further, last but not the least is the fletching. It at the end of the arrow, it provide a small amount of drag to stabilize the flight of the arrow. They are designed to keep the arrow pointed in the direction of travel by strongly damping down any tendency to pitch or yaw. The aspect of management in it, you have to be flexible and upgrade yourself to stay the fittest to stay in the market. When the senior management changes strategic planning to suit environment changes, middle management and supervisory level must also change to suit the plan. Look at it as senior management being the fletching setting the direction, middle management being the shaft ensuring the plan go on course and supervisory level being the...

The American Capitalist System: All for One or One for All?

...The American Capitalist System: All for One or One for All? The American capitalist system goes to show that you can be successful, if you’re wise enough to manipulate the system. Once this condition exists, the freedom to choose a profession and the freedom to determine socio-economic class exist. Workers’ wages are too low to support the average middle class family, the minimum wage being approximately 7 dollars and change in New Jersey. In addition, corporations ultimately force workers to veer towards giving more money in order to supply for public assistance programs, like Medicaid and food stamps, thereby increasing personal profit since the company is then dependent on the public and outside resources. Also, with intense costs of living, any freedom to determine socio-economic class is slowly brought down. Although capitalism paves the path for a freedom to choose the way in which money is earned, the money-sucking policies associated with it prove to hurt the majority of Americans in today’s society. On paper, the American capitalist system does allow for an independently chosen career, however, is this system as ideal as it seems? Although the freedom to choose one’s method of income exists, many people in the middle class are still limited to few options when it comes to jobs. These limitations may be due to lack of a college degree, or it may be a result of a lack of job availability. On the educational side of job searching, it is a fact that the higher paying......

Blue Arrow

...Executive summary Blue Arrow is a publicly held firm and the leading UK employment agency. The management is thinking about expanding further in to the US by buying the largest temporary help company in the world, Manpower. The bid was to be made by a cash tender offer funded by a fully underwritten rights issue of £837 million. In this report we calculate the value of one right and the value of the underwriter's put as of August 3 by using the Black-Scholes and put-call parity valuation approach. In addition we assess the sensitivity and validity regarding these calculations, and discuss the fee charged by the underwriter. The detailed assumptions regarding our calculations are: o The rights are issued on August 3; one right can be converted into 2.5 shares with an issue price of £1.66 per share. o The rights issue closes on September 28 o Everyone is fully informed about the issue and acquisition Assuming a successful acquisition price of $82.50 per share, or £51.56 per share, we end up with the following estimates for the value of one right and the underwriter's put. In our calculation we have adjusted the market value of equity as of August 3 by subtracting total issuing fees. Since our calculations depend critically on the NPV of the Manpower acquisition, we also calculated different values assuming reasonable NPV for the acquisition. Our valuation technique, the Black-Scholes model, is furthermore sensitive to changes in volatility, time to maturity (or...
