In American economic review (papers and proceedings), Oi and Idson suggest that workers are more productive in large firms, accordingly, they deserve higher wages(Oi and Idson,1999b). Hamermesh holds that since large firms have more capital and need workers who are able to work with this capital, they are likely to recruit workers with high-quality and employees with more working experience, which requires higher wages(Hamermesh, 1980). Another popular explanation is proposed by Albasket al., arguing that large firms have a greater ability to pay than small firms do, and large firms are more likely to benefit from monopoly and share the great amount of profits with their employees. Moreover, it is easier for them to attract more

Here I will analyse how team cohesion can be increased and the outcomes of a highly cohesive team The term ‘cohesiveness’ in the context of team cohesiveness within organisations can be defined as ‘The degree to which members are attracted to and motivated to remain part of the group.’ French et al (2008, p.286) Persons within a highly cohesive team generally tend to be more enthusiastic and energetic towards completing team activities and have a lower absenteeism rate, therefore team cohesion is an endeavour that managers are continuously trying to promote within organisations. There are many factors which can influence and effect cohesiveness and the performance of a team. Fig 1. adapted from Mullins L. J. (2008, p.307) illustrates the factors in question.

A good strategy is a key component to the success of any company internationally and domestically. According to Hill and Jones(2009) ‘superior performance is typically thought of in terms of company’s profitability relative to other companies in the same or similar kind of business or industry’ According to Robert Kelly and Janet Caplanhas a company is said to have superior performance when it has the capacity to recognize opportunities that can add value, the capacity to complete quality work on a time, the ability to act as a change agent, work through organizational politics, the ability to inform the manager of the progress and impacts of the project, the ability to inspire customers on a regular basis and also the ability to work across boundaries. The strategies an organisation pursues have a major impact on its performance relative to rivals. Hill and Jones (2009) define strategy as ‘a set of actions that managers take to increase their company’s performance relative to rivals’. Competitive advantage can only be achieved if the company’s strategy leads to superior performance.
