After the selection Caterpillar and Delphi put together a plan to increase Delphi’s role to a design and build supplier.

Mentoring to Develop Ethical Employees Mystie McGlone Kaplan University MT203: Human Resources Management Paulette Howlett, Ph.D. April 30, 2013 Mentoring to Develop Ethical Employees Introduction Mentoring can be a very effective way of helping a new employee adjust to the culture of a company.

Developing the franchise and allowing others to buy a part of the business to own and run them gave people control over how they ran and grew their portion of the business. Creating Stick Men U, a training university, that taught owners, and movers, the importance of customer first customer service, and how to move property without damaging it, demonstrates the expectancy theory (Jones, 2007).
