If not, how should it be revised? Kaiser did not have a justified employment policy at the time (1974) that this incident took place. Since then they have updated their policies and their website states in their Code of Conduct that “diversity of our employees is a tremendous asset” and we “do not tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind” (Kaiser Aluminum, 2014). It appears that Kaiser Aluminum is attempting to correct the sins of their past and that they have revised their employment policy. However, I conducted some more research on a career website and found that Kaiser employee’s average rating on their company was only a 3.7 out of 10 points.
Greenfield outsourcing is all about is the corporate change without hiring any external employees or service providers. In other words, the company like Nike in our case may hire independent contractors or startup companies to provide some services that the company did not do inhouse (Caroselli, 113). The following essay will speak about the NIKE company and its outsourcing business practices that although proved to be very profitable for Nike at some point of time would attract international attention with respect to the ethics involved in the corporate management, working conditions and compensation. According to corporate

When Reichart complained of this and tried to get support from upper management/corporate they told him not to poke his nose in the functional manager’s business. As time went on so did the project
!” I doubt it! I told him that my theory is that you are trying to cover for DRT for whatever reason, and that AGAIN, you want us to do your job, by providing your with "admin crap" to do; and at the same time provide DT with "admin crap" to do because neither of you want to and/or know how to do anything else... and are trying to cover for the fact that you were hired off of the street with less than 7 months total federal government nor one day of formal government contracting service... yet he was hired and interviewed by D (who shouldn't be in the job, because he's ineffective...)... and R; and by trying to help him... you are covering yourself because you are hired and are still on a 12 month probation until June
The Germans used a three-day meeting as a way to lay the foundation for the structure of the entire product launch. By not understanding the importance of the initial meetings in the process, Jim never truly understood the way the team was working, that is by analyzing the problem, and addressing the issues then dividing the work and moving forward with the team leader checking and controlling the outcome. The German team had worked together for at least 10 years and so they knew the company procedures very well, but Jim clearly did not. A key organizational issue Jim exhibited is not showing respect for the Germans' methods and failing to align himself with the culture more rather than removing himself from the process and complaining. Fundamentally, Jim wanted to outline the problem, adjust and confer during the process but the Germans had different ideas.
There are not enough regulations and monitoring system for the daily accounting activities. For instance, management and auditors spend very little time reviewing the insignificance of petty cash account. So the five elements of internal control is not work well in this company.

Team members received emails from Hugh McBride requesting to list his board of directors’ choice. The team members encouraged to develop “flowery” presentations for approval from Beltway Investments. Because the board of directors operates independently, the CEO has recommended items that would be considered as a conflict of interest and unethical. Team members Betty B. and Betty W. have been awarded the opportunity to be a whistle blower and not become part of the negative behavior. Each of the two should address the wrongs that have been asked of them.
