Age discrimination is an issue today, perhaps more than ever in an era when companies seek to avoid having to pay retirement or medical benefits and do so by firing older employees who might be about to invest in their pension or who might need medical attention. Another reason is that older employees may be paid more than new hires, so companies replace older workers with new workers just for that reason. This type of change is in addition to those who are simply biased against older workers and who take any opportunity to remove older works and bring in new blood. There are some reasons why such discrimination occurs. Experienced workers, some who already reach their golden age would cost more to the company, because of their high salary due to experience and exposure to the company where they know well about what is going on.
Mike Hammer believe that “physicians didn’t understand, nor were they interested in, the role of costs in determining the viability of hospitals” (p. 546). Hammer tried different approaches to cutting costs, which were always rejected by the physicians. He even ran into conflict with the hospital’s board of trustees who would always side with the physicians. Dr. Williams felt that “Hammer was asking for a cultural change that was impossible” (p. 546) Hammer hired a chief operating officer (COO) that would help him implement cost cutting procedures. Discuss the conflict management styles that are evident in the case.

Halo Effect in Hiring Starlin Lorenzo Professor: Termaine C. Garden 4/20/2012 Halo Effect in Hiring The halo effect refers to a cognitive bias whereby the perception of a particular trait is influenced by the perception of above features in a sequence of interpretations. Halo effect has significant interaction between business justification and applicant attractiveness on selection decisions. Specifically, individuals given the business justification are more likely to hire attractive applicants over unattractive applicants are equally likely to be hired. The concept of physical attractiveness also undermined when we apply ourselves, as several studies have shown that the correlation between how you see attractive people themselves and how others see them is very low, i.e. we overestimated with respect to our physical attractiveness.
For example, if I were to be at workd and a new employee walked in wearing the wrong work attire, I would immediately think that she is not going to be a good employee simply because she did not wear the outfit that she was told to wear. This assuming that she will be a bad employee for just a simple, what could be a misunderstanding. To avoid maiing assumptions I will access the situation at hand and get all of the facts befor jumping to any conclusions. What are fallacies? How are fallacies used in written, oral, and visual arguments?
On another note, the claim of disparate treatment that Dunlap had made was successful because the court found out the scoring of the interview process done by TVA have been influenced by the committee. In addition, the scoring was being altered to favor white candidates. It was found that TVA used candidates who score “100%” to fill in their vacant positions. TVA was unable to prove that what prompted them to alter the scores was because of a need to fill a diversity position; especially since an email from Human Resources stated that they did not have authority to alter scores of candidates. Additionally, candidates had a right to be informed of the interview process and the representation of scores.
This paper intends to show that contrary to beliefs of many who feel the concept of “paying your dues” is outdated; it is in fact the only way to truly succeed. By referencing the success stories of those who are well known for their success, I show that successful people “paid their dues” to get where they are and that it is not “sheer luck” which brings them success. In sum, the formula to success is a combination of working hard for a specific minimum period of time and continually trying to improve. Paying Your Dues: The Psychology of Success The concept of “success” has long been studied by various academics of a multitude of disciplines. However, the psychology of “success” and how it is obtained is quite fascinating.
Short Summary In “The Untouchables” Thomas Friedman an investigative reporter and a columnist for the New York Times, also a three time Pulitzer Prize winner argues that the security of future jobs in America will be determined by how “untouchable” each person is. Thomas Friedman has most recently written “Hot, Flat, and Crowded.” Friedman uses the word “flat” to describe “the stunning rise of middle classes all over the world.” Friedman argues with the globalization of the “flat” world, companies are interested in hiring the person most suitable for a job. Each individual should say: ‘Not only does my work have to fit into somebody’s global supply chain, but I myself have to understand how I need to compete and have the skill sets required to work at a pace that fits the supply chain. And I had better be able to do that as well or better than anyone else in the world.’ In order to have success in America’s work field you will need certain skills that are suited to the flat world. These skills will make you special or anchored and therefore make you untouchable.
Should the government allow workers to strike? It is human nature to be unsatisfied with the present circumstances and strive for more. In the early years, federal employees were not allowed even to join unions or groups that may sponsor strikes otherwise deal with one year imprisonment. It is the temperament of labor unions to ask the employers much more than they are willing to partake, which then precede strengthening of perceptions and then eventually the strike. Increasing strikes will result in greater costs of state and local government and the taxes as well.
