For decades now, managers have been challenged on how to build team cohesion and group unity, and not just around work issues, but social issues in the workplace as well. Gone are the days when ruthless competition and pitting team members against each other was a methodology for motivation. “Purposeful Collaboration” is what is working in today’s world.
Briefly in 1999, William “Bill” Gates’ net worth surpassed the one hundred billion dollar mark. Now, 20 years later, he’s become a centibillionaire yet again. From his one percent ownership in Microsoft to Cascade Investments, Mr. Gates has amassed this great fortune due to his keen business mind. But he seemingly doesn’t care about all of the money. He is only behind Jeff Bezos in terms of wealth accumulation. But he still doesn’t care about that. He is a philanthropist who through his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has given away tens of billions of dollars. This is not to aid the homeless in his home state of Washington, and in particular the city of Seattle, but people thousands of miles away in the jungles of Africa.
This is a short response I was required to write during my academic writing assessment as part of my master’s program application last month. I am happy to report that I received a perfect score on it and am sharing this accomplishment with my readership, not only in response to my surge of pride, but also to offer other aspiring academic writers a guide of sorts on how to analyze and synthesize sources in order to support a thesis. Please note that because only one page of Manuel Castells’s article was required for inclusion in my essay, no in-text citations were necessary, although I did include a bibliography at the end for proper form and for those who are curious to read his piece.
Sexual harassment in the workplace is nothing new nowadays. It is quite unfortunate that men and women everywhere have to change the way they look, or cover up more just so people don’t advance them.
When it comes to getting good customer service, it's important to understand that efforts should be made on your part. Just as providing good customer service requires effort and patience, getting good customer service requires effort and patience from the client. I understand some people may think a customer does not have to do anything to get a good service. Theoretically this is true, but in practice, it almost never happens.
Syracuse, New York. Home to roughly 900,000 human lives as of 2019. Home. That is, in my case, the starting line. I don't intend to stay, as few people do when they get older and realize how much more there is just over the horizon. "Salt City," they used to call it, for its historical significance as a salt mining town amidst the industrial revolution, with the Erie Canal and railway networks lain here weaving the modern State of New York together.
Crashing a vase to the floor is highly therapeutic, especially when it is understood that the store selling said vase is insured.
It's an exciting thing when you first put the badge on and take the oath to defend and protect. Your family is standing there, along with your chief and any others he has invited. Your significant other, or child or even a parent hold the bible and you take your oath. There is nothing that really compares except marriage or the birth of your children. You also know that you have entered a field that is wrought with danger, and stress but also reward. You do not become a police officer for the money, you do it for a need or a want to help. You do it because you feel a calling from a higher power to do what needs to be done and protect the sheep. You are the sheepdog! If you don't, leave the field now because you are giving the ones that do it for the right reasons a bad name.
It was my final year in college, the year I decided it was time to become responsible and get a part-time job. I mean how long could I really go on asking my parents for money to fund my various activities. I applied to the cinema near my house, they offered me a part-time position and I was due to start that Christmas.
When I was 19, my father thought it would be a great opportunity to work as an intern at one of the biggest food and beverage companies in the world. I've never been interested in working an office job—to be honest I have no idea what they do all day. After fighting a losing battle, I had no choice but to buy myself a less fun version of an Ellen Degeneres outfit and go to the office from nine to five for two months of my summer holidays.
For many employees who work in the field of Human Resources (HR), it could be the day when an employee is discharged for misconduct, an applicant files a formal complaint for not getting the job he feels he deserves, or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sends a Charge of Discrimination on behalf of a disgruntled former employee.
