BSB115- Maanagement

1. Introduction
Volunteering is any activity, which time is given without being paid for to benefit another person or group (John Wilson, 2000). Not-for-profit organisations often rely on volunteering to operate their business and this need will continue to grow as a result of volunteering trends in an ageing population (Volunteering Australia, 2012).
This brief will outline some of the challenges and opportunities faced as a result of an ageing population, specifically focusing on the Green Frog Nursery.

2. Summary of the issue
Whilst volunteering in Australia is steadily increasing, most organisations require more volunteers to achieve a significant social impact (volunteering Australia, 2011).
The majority of volunteers are older people who are more likely to volunteer than those in younger age groups (Volunteering Australia, 2012). One of the reasons for this is greater community engagement through voluntary work practise, which positively influences volunteers ‘subjective quality of life (Taghian, D´Souza &
Polonsky, 2012).
The rate of volunteering in Australia is impacted negatively by variables including age, gender, locality and cultural background (Volunteering Australia, 2012). Green
Frog Nursery has to replace its core team of volunteers with younger people for its continual success, however this is not an easy task as they view ‘volunteering’ differently to other age groups (Volunteering Australia, 2012). Furthermore, the
“negative image of volunteering may reduce young people´s willingness to participate” (Ho & O'Donohoe, 2014, p. 855).
Green Frog Nursery needs to address this problem and engage young people to join their organisation. One way they could address this issue is by implementing a…...

After waiting for a few weeks with no offers, on March 1, Vivian calls him and offers to purchase the vehicle for $12,000. Bernie invites Vivian to meet him on March 5 to complete the negotiation and transaction.  On March 10, after Bernie and Vivian negotiation, Vivian made a counteroffer. She is willing to pay $12,500 for the car; but, she needs another three weeks to raise the money. Bernie agrees to wait, but only if Vivian would put down a deposit of $1,000. Vivian agrees and Bernie hastily drafts a one page agreement. Bernie would like to keep his options open in case he gets a better offer, so he puts the following language into the agreement: * Bernie agrees to sell his 2009 Ford Fusion to Vivian for $12,500 and Vivian agrees to purchase the same for such price. The transaction shall take place no later than March 31.  * In the event that the seller breaches this agreement, the seller must refund the purchaser's deposit, but the parties shall be limited to this remedy and only this remedy.  * In the event that the buyer breaches this agreement, the seller may keep the buyer's deposit, but the seller shall be limited to this remedy and only this remedy.  Vivian reads and signs the agreement and gives Bernie a check for $1,000.

The defendant received the benefits and protection of the laws of the state and is subject to jurisdiction there. 6. Conclusion: Judgment affirmed; the state may maintain the present suit to collect the tax. II. 1. Title: Stinton v. Robin’s Wood, Inc. (p. 57) Judgment......

...BSB115 Management: Assessment Item 2 VBD Business Brief Vivien Hiller 9622349 1. Introduction The Q-Tel Pty Ltd is a company based in Queensland, which produces software and other applications for telecommunication companies. The purpose of this brief is to determine wether to establish work-at-home policy for selected employees at the Q-tel Pty Ltd. Information and communication technologies (ICT) make it possible for employees to work at home and deliver their work output to the firm by those ICT. This work arrangement is called telecommuting (Sarbu, 2015). 2. Analysis of Issue 3.1 Summary of the Issue In mid-sized companies such as Q-tel, telecommuting is much more frequently used than work in office. According to a study 34 per cent of the employees in mid-sized companies with 20 to 99 employees work at home. On the downside, 26 per cent don’t work at home at all. One reason for this could be the familial business culture in relatively small companies, which indicates more trust towards employees concerning their work and shows that employers don’t always have to supervise their employees. Another reason could be the technical and organizational structure, which enables more flexible forms of work arrangements (Olsen, 1989). The interest in working at home from the employees’ and the employers’ side is increasing. A benefit for the employees is the improvement of the work-life-balance. Family members can spend more time together and can manage......
