The FPA law restricts US business representatives from offering or accepting payment whether cash or kind from any foreign official, politician or political party in exchange for favorable business decisions that otherwise would not be made and is considered unethical. The law allows for small payments or gifts, sometimes considered as tips to persuade or encourage faster and better service, however companies are required to keep accurate records of these transactions which are not tax exempt. What kind of Ethical Issue is this? The ethical issue is the potential conflict of interest and perception of bribery that could arise should the gift be accepted by the wife of the Account Executive. In the global business environment incompatible values and cultural beliefs can create conflicts with company policies and laws. This is the ethical dilemma faced by the Account Executive in this situation. While the motive for giving the gift could be tied to the cultural practices of the customer and......

Employee Attitudes Case Study

...and increasing opportunities (153). Best Buy’s executive vice president for human capital, John Pershing, expressed universalism through online surveys. “One way the company has also tried to keep employees engaged is by setting up online surveys to solicit ideas for cutting costs” (176). This allows employees that may not be on a higher level to feel like they are appreciated by management when their ideas are being asked for and taken into consideration. Self-direction and achievement are also strong values being seen with Steve Ellis at Bain & Company. According to Consulting Magazine, Bain & Company was ranked number one in best firms of 2010 survey (Consulting Mag, 2010). Ellis states: “We maintain this track record through a commitment to our people to not rest on our laurels or be complacent” (Consulting Mag). Clearly, he is actively achieving something with his employees and their consultants to continually achieve number one status out of more than 200 firms that are included in this survey (Consulting Mag). He’s also ambitious for aggressively hiring during the recession to build the talent pool in “hot-growth areas” and continuing to gain clientele during that time (Kreitner and Kinicki, 176). Most managers during the recession do not take this kind of control, rather they choose to downsize and limit spending wherever possible. But Ellis took his initiative and led it into a direction that would increase his team, increase clientele, and continue to......

Change and Culture Case Study

...Change and Culture Case Study II HCS/514 July 29, 2013 Brian Eigelbach Change and Culture Case Study II The increasing demand for improving patient care delivery and reducing costs in an intensely competitive industry forces organizations consider various strategies relating to restructuring. Restructuring strategies include mergers and acquisitions, staff downsizing and redefining the scope of duties and responsibilities of the employee role within the organization. When companies decide to merge sometimes radical decisions are made regarding the vision and mission of the new organization. At the start of the merger the main focus is the blending of the organization and the cultures within the organization. Managers face many obstacles during the blending process. Some of the challenges include lack of planning, staff resistance to change and failure to constantly reevaluate the changes made. It is very important during the blending of the two organizations management continue to monitor the change and determine if the process needs further adjustment in order for the new organization to meet the revised mission and goals. It is during this evaluation period that management may determine that further change is necessary and sometimes that change requires drastic staff downsizing and revised responsibilities of staff. This paper will re-examine the fictional organization from Case Study I six months after the merger of two competing healthcare......

Bank of America's Case Study

...Bank of America Case Study The talent management program That led to Success for the Company Bank of America believes successful global leadership development is a mix of three essentials: global consistencies, cultural distinctive and individual ownership. Aligning, teaching and developing key leaders from across the enterprise are main facts of their consistent approach. According tone of the articles of Carter (founder and CEO of Best Practice Institute and the author of several books, including Best Practices in Leadership Development) at Talent Management’s web site, “Participants of their Accelerated Development Program include 80 to 100 high-potential leaders identified from a pool of 5,000 nominees as the bank’s next generation of senior leaders”. The author Carter adds that “The curriculum is a blend of self-paced, Web-enabled content, instructor-led classroom learning, assessment, coaching and ongoing, virtual instructor-led learning”. Carter asserts that, program participants are assigned to coaches from Bank of America’s HR community who know the company culture and live and work in the same region or business unit as those they are coaching (Carter, 2012). Bank of America's overall philosophy of talent management and development is determined by seven base doctrines that create a mindset which penetrate across the company’s executive line. This......

Mountain Bank a Case Study

...Mountain Bank A Case Study I. I would recommend that Mountain Bank implement the following competitive strategy for the reasons given: a. Mountain Bank should follow the differentiation strategy. i. Mountain Bank should follow this strategy because few organizations can successfully use the cost leadership strategy. One problem with a cost leadership strategy is usually only one organization can be the lowest-cost provider in any industry. The organization that is often successful at the cost leadership strategy is an organization that has a large share of the market (p. 48). Mountain Bank does not have a large share of the banking market. Mountain Bank is located in the northwest United States. According to current estimates Mountain Bank has about fifty percent of the market for retail banking, about twenty-five percent of consumer lending market, less than ten percent of the real estate and mortgage banking market, and less than five percent of the corporate banking market in its area (p. 69). ii. Another reason that Mountain Bank should follow this strategy is one of the best methods for achieving gains in the real estate banking and corporate banking is cross-selling. Cross-selling occurs when tellers and customer service representatives convince customers with retail accounts to open corporate accounts or to obtain home mortgages from Mountain Bank. Recent studies have found that bank tellers are critical to the success of Mountain Bank. One study......

Macquarie Bank Case Study

...Exercise: 1 – 7th Class of OSD Macquarie Bank Case Study Macquarie Bank is an excellent example of a highly successful organization, which has been able to maintain its success using an incremental adjustment process while operating in a rapidly changing environment. During the 1980s and 1990s, changes occurred in the environment of Australian financial institutions. These included rapid deregulation of the financial services sector by the Australian Labour Government. The critical moves involved were the floating of the Australian dollar, progressive removal of restrictions on competition between banks, building societies, merchant banks, and other institutions which offer financial services, and grant of new banking licenses including licenses to 16 foreign-owned banks to operate in Australia. From its inception as ‘Hill Samuel Australia’ in the early 1970s, the bank’s strategic focus was merchant banking (investment banking). In 1980, the bank commenced a process of diversification. But, with deregulation in the 1980s it diversified further, building up strength in specialist markets, particularly in high value-added niches (market segments) like corporate services, bullion and commodities. The pace of diversification quickened by the mid 1980s with the bank entering into a range of new areas including retail domestic banking, equity investments, property and leasing. Growth took place by way of both development and acquisition. Macquarie remains one of......

Shinsei Bank Case Study

...Shinsei Bank’s current organizational structure and culture reflect the effects of several defining moments in the bank’s history. When its original incarnation, the Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan, failed in 1998, it set in motion a series of paradigm shifts for the bank. First, the bank was sold to a US private equity group, Ripplewood. This was controversial as, per the case material, “corporate Japan loathed private equity groups, and the government was reluctant to allow a foreign group to control a major local bank.” Thus, right from the start, Shinsei Bank had an uphill climb ahead of it in terms of public acceptance. Ripplewood smartly chose a highly respected Japanese senior executive, Masamoto Yashiro, as CEO. He had worked for decades in American companies’ operations in Japan, and could use that experience to integrate the new owners’ expectations into the company structure and culture. The “injection” of foreign values and culture cannot be underestimated. Within the first year, Yashiro chose not to support one of its biggest clients during its financial troubles, and the company, Sogo, ended up filing for bankruptcy. This was counter to the historical moral code in Japan that banks support company clients even if they suffer losses, and confirmed the public’s and government’s worst fears of changes that might be wrought by foreign ownership. Furthermore, Yashiro abolished the former rotational assignment system so that employees could specialize. ...
