Describe how Alan’s opening comments in the video (his view of his job) affect his approach to the performance reviews. Does Alan’s view of his job foster a negative or positive work atmosphere with his employees? Explain. Because of Alan’s tone of voice, his opening comment in the performance review shows that he is not really interested in the interview. I also think that the manner in which Alan started the review has destroyed his employees’ moral, and demotivated them because of his negative approach at the commencement of the review.
For example, when the Inspector asks Mr Birling, 'Why?' as to why Mr Birling had refused Eva Smith a raise in wage, Mr Birling is completely shocked at being questioned this and says 'Did you say Why?’' This shows that the Inspector is not prepared to wait around for basic answers, he is determined to get the truth by any means possible.

On the story itself Ishiguro was interested in how people “lied to themselves to dignify their failures” and in the “Remains of the Day” this statement holds true as the central characters: Stevens, Ms. Kenton and Lord Darlington all make mistakes that affect Stevens’ life; what Stevens recalls as fond memories is ironically seen to us as the one-by-one loss of all of his assets. Stevens’ personal regret laid in the unneeded sacrifice of the little familial time left between Stevens and his father Stevens Senior, this allowed Stevens to realize his blind misguided devotion to his employer Lord Darlington. Ms. Kenton’s marriage to Mr Benn and their eventual child chained her to an existence she never wanted to spend with anyone other than Stevens and her own regret heavily affected Stevens when they met again. In Darlington Hall, Lord Darlington made monumental mistakes in the name of the country and believed he was accomplishing something good and positive until he realized that he was indeed “out of his depth” and with his sickness overcoming him he passes away leaving Stevens alone to survey the extent of Darlington’s “good will” which was nothing but incompetent decisions made by an amateur.

For example, feeling underappreciated for any extra work the new employer may put in. These employees may be going above and beyond what they initially signed up for, by their own accord or by orders from management. However, management take them for granted because they lack appreciation and acknowledgement for this work.
