“When we start to talk losses in hundreds of billions of dollars, it’s easy for our eyes to glaze over. It’s a big number. Hundreds of billions is reserved for things like out-of-control healthcare costs. But healthcare gets plenty of attention from government, private corporations and consumers. You know what else will cost the United States hundreds of billion if dollars by 2018? Data loss (Savitz)”. I chose data piracy because this is a topic that has been overlooked for years. It seems nobody has a solution for this problem so it continues to grow at an alarming rate. Online data piracy continues to be a dilemma because 70% of online…...

...Policy Issues and the Police AJS/582 February 14, 2012 Abstract Community policing is a new idea that has been introduced to law enforcement. The program is federally funded and was created with the intentions of providing citizens the opportunity to work collectively along side with the police to diminish fear and crimes within communities. By examining police departments within the Unites States which has implemented community policing programs, a determination of whether there has been a positive or negative change can be concluded. Community policing, when implemented and organized properly is the ideal situation for police departments and the communities to build an alliance against crime. Community Policing Foot patrol or walking the beat are the many terms used to represent community policing. This community relationship has been a subject of discussion and research since the early 1900’s and still is today (Trojanowicz ,1986). Community policing was established with the idea of local law enforcement and the community working collectively, focusing on reducing and eventually preventing crime and social disorder. The strategy is to achieve a more valuable and proficient crime control, reduce terror of crime and improve quality of life. Community policing also helps the police gain the trust and cooperation of the community by having a strong presence in the area.  Most......

For the purpose of this essay, it is important to define further what human resource management is and what it is used for and to establish how it effectively contribute to the positive performance of an organization. "Human resource management (HRM) is concerned with the personnel policies and managerial practices and systems that influence the workforce. In broader terms, all decisions that affect the workforce of the organization concern the HRM function." (Bernadin,H.J.2007). Furthermore, (Armstrong.2006:4) defined it as a strategic and coherent approach of an organization's most valued assets-the people working there, who individually and collectively contribute to the achievements of the objectives of the business. The term Human resource management is therefore also widely known as "Personnel Management" as a description of the process of managing people in organizations. In a constantly changing world,......

...Organizational policies are used to achieve uniformity, economics, public relations, benefits and other objectives that many be unrelated to recruiting. At time, policies can be a source of constraints. Policies that may affect recruitment are highlighted below. Compensation policies: pay policies are a common constraints faced by recruiters, Organizations with HR departments usually establish pay ranges for different jobs to ensure equitable wages and salaries. Recruiters seldom have the authority to exceed the stated pay ranges. Of course, pay ranges must be special cases such as international openings. Applying domestic compensation rates overseas often entails overpaying or underpaying foreign nationals compared with what they would normally earn. At the same time, employees which are reassigned overseas often need and expect an increase to handle extra living expenses. Employment status policies: some companies have policies on hiring part-time and temporary employees. Although there is growing interest in hiring these types of workers,policies can cause recruiters to reject all but those seeking full-time work. Limitations on part-time and temporary employees reduce the pool of potential applicants, especially since this segment of the workforce is a fast-growing one. In fact, a study of 484 firms found a one-third in cease in the use of part-timers. policies that discriminate against any refundable group should be reviewed, when those groups are protected under......

...Prabesh Timilsina, HBD3173.E1, Exercise5 5.1 Study the Learning from Experience Case on p. 445.  What is the significance of the organizational design of the company? The basis for any successful organization is for people to work together and understand how their behaviors support the organization’s strategy. Yet, talented people in even the best managed organizations are sometimes left trying to understand how their own activities contribute to their organization’s success. An organization’s design is crucial in clarifying the roles of the leaders and employees who hold the organization together. Organization design is the process of selecting a structure for the tasks, responsibilities, and authority relationships within an organization. An organization’s design influences communication patterns among individuals and teams and determines which person or department has the political power to get things done. The structure of an organization influences the behavior of employees. Therefore, an organization’s design plays a critical role in the success of an organization. Every organization’s design decision solves one set of problems but creates others. Organization design decisions often involve the diagnosis of multiple factors, including an organization’s culture, power and political behaviors, and job design. Organization design represents the outcomes of a decision-making process that includes environmental factors, strategic choices, and technological factors.......

Does a Paid Parental Leave Policy Create an Organizational Culture That Contributes to the Advancement of Women in Government?

...Paid Parental Leave Policy Create an Organizational Culture that Contributes to the Advancement of Women in Government? April 23, 2015 Jessica Butherus, Amber Chaudhry, LeBrit Nickerson, Caty Rogers & Marcia Straut I. Introduction The 1993 Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) was a vital step toward improving workers’ access to leave, in order to help care for new children or ill family members. Unfortunately, the law does not require employees to be paid and does not cover organizations with less than 50 workers. Therefore, many workers still do not have access to leave, and those that do often find it financially difficult to take advantage of the benefits (Gault, Hartmann, Hegewisch, Millie, and Reichlin, p.4). With no legal requirements, only 11% of employees working in the private sector and only 16% of government employees have access to paid leave (Rosen). Discussion of paid parental leave has recently made it back in the spotlight. This January, President Barack Obama signed a presidential memorandum directing agencies to allow federal employees to take up to six weeks of advanced sick leave to care for a new child or ill family member (Mufson and Eilperin). City governments, including Boston and Seattle, recently announced paid parental leave policies of their own (O’Brien, Capitol Hills Time Staff).    As aspiring female leaders in the federal government, we chose to explore: Does a Paid Parental Leave Policy Create an Organizational Culture that......

How Organizational Policies and Procedures Can Impact Ethics.

...How organizational policies and procedures can impact ethics. Organizational policies and procedures are very important for every company. They communicate to all members of an organization what is considered right and wrong, creating order and harmony among the workplace. These rules guide an organization. Most companies, especially the large ones, have a formal, systematic policy to promote ethical behavior. These efforts, called corporate ethics programs, are designed to make employees aware what is ethical and unethical and also to encourage them to follow the moral practices. Typically, ethical policies and procedures involve components like a code of ethics, ethics training, ethics audits, and ethics committees. (Greenberg, 2011, pp. 56-57) The integrated ethical policies and procedures can be effective; however, it is not easy. High ethical standards require both, businesses and individuals, to conform to some moral principles which often involves compromises or trade-offs (Ferrell, Fraedrich, Ferrell, 2011, p.7). Nevertheless, it has been found that in companies which have organizational policies and procedures according to ethics the employees are more likely to report the ethical misconduct to the company’s leaders, are considered as more accountable for ethical abuses and face less pressure in finding the middle ground with the standards of business conduct (Greenberg, 2011, p. 58). Likewise, another studies show also that the ethical policies are......

... Theories of Crime Causation October 31, 2011 Abstract In this paper you will read about three policies that I chose and The Diversion Program. You will also read about the Prison rehabilitation program as well as confinement. The three policies that I chose to write about is: Diversion Programs (drug, court, etc.), the second policy that I picked is Prison Rehabilitation Programs and the last is the Death Penalty. The Diversion Program is a good thing. It was established in 1996 by Bynum and Thompson. This is very interesting because if you look at it one way it helps the court out by them taking care of the not so bad kids, without court but maybe the kids need a good scare, by putting them thru the courts. Regardless the Division Program is a good thing. In 1967 presidents’ commission on law enforcement and the administration of justice had alternative programs developed for juvenile offenders within local communities. The theories that would fit into this policy would be social disorganization theory, windows theory, and Differential association theory. On any given day, as far as arrest go minority youth outweigh Caucasian kids. (Krisberg & Austin, 1993). In 1985 52% of juveniles were incarcerated, 1989 was 60% and 1995 it was 65%, this......

...THE CASE OF THE PRICING PREDICAMENT Cost-cutting customers. Hungry Foreign rivals. Should Standard Machine Lowerits bid? By MARY KARR As soon a Scott Palmer’s secretary told him that Joanne Braker form Occidental Aerospace was on the phone, he knew he was in for a long day. Inheriting the Occidental account had helped him earn top sales commissions last year, his first at Standard Machine Corporation. But a month ago, Joanne informed Scott of the purchasing department’s new, more aggressive competitive bid policy, and said it would apply to the acquisition of a computerized milling machine for Occidental’s new training center. Scott nevertheless submitted his $429,000 proposal with great confidence and even boasted to his regional sales manager that the deal was “in the bag”. After two weeks of unreturned phone calls, however, Scott got the feeling his confidence had been sorely misplaced. “Hi, Joanne, Long time, no hear. What’s up?” Joanne got right to the point. “Scott, I’ve got a $22,000 problem you can solve”. “What do you mean?” “You know we have to look hard at a number of different vendors on purchases of this size. And your bid is well above the competition’s. Kakuchi came in under $390,000, and Akita Limited at a little over 400K”. She waited, and Scott waited back, not wanting to show his anxiousness. “The way I count it,” she finally continued, “You’re $22,000 too high, and I just can’t sell that here”. “Well, Joanne,......
