Credit crunch and recession are great examples of external factors influencing the business. If the people are suffering from recession, they will not have money to spend money and this is how it affects the businesses. The current instability in Iraq is a good example of what may happen to businesses. In business it’s very important to understand, monitor and adapt to the political environment, because it crucially affects every business.

EEO & Affirmative Action In my view equal employment opportunity and affirmative action are the most important legislative components of human resource management. Many companies leave these legislative components up to the human resource managers. I believe that in order to be a successful manager, you must know the laws that impact HRM. Lack of knowledge of this important part of human resource management has lead to numerous law suits actions by employees. One of the most important legislative acts is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

SOX Reforms Corporate America The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) enacted July 30, 2002 introduced significant changes to financial practice and corporate management regulation. Passed in the wake of numerous scandals SOX is a complex piece of legislation that requires companies to make major changes to bring their organizations into compliance (Bumgardner 2).

Sox address weaknesses with internal issues, requiring yearly
Melissa Day HRM 587 Professor Stone Week 2 Images of Change November 8, 2013 Change frequently occurs in a company. That change can manifest itself in a change in leadership-like a new CEO, downsizing due to structural reordering, or acquiring new companies to improve business output and diversifying ones product line. From an employee (and for some members of management) standpoint change can cause fear and stress, because change shakes people from where they were comfortable and it asks them to do something different, something they may be uncomfortable with-however, the only constant in life (both personal and professional) is change.

When examining the problems at hand, it becomes clear that Boeing should focus on structure. Boeing has recently undergone some mergers and acquisitions and has a giant need to integrate these companies into the Boeing family so employees and consumers aren’t confused and to eliminate duplicate functions between organizations (Galbraith 2000). Secondly, technology is lagging not just in operations, but in employee data tracking and knowledge management. Another application of this could be in the marketing department through the use of metrics to better meet market demand. The use of a knowledge management system would also help to address the collaboration problem that Boeing has between employees.
Abstract The American economy is driven by business and industry and the ability to create jobs. As technology advances, demographics change, and globalization occur it is of the utmost importance for America’s business and industry to examine their workforce needs.
