MEMO TO: Supervisory Team

We all are aware of the current changes that are going to be taking place within InterClean in the next few weeks. That means as managers we have to make sure our employees are staying just as productive as they were before the merger was announced. So we need to continue to set clear expectations for our staff and that starts with our management team.

We must realize that the behaviors that we illustrate to our staff are crucial in a time where there are concerns about layoffs, replacements, and terminations. Going forth, our supervisory team is no longer allowed to discuss their concerns of the merger amongst our subordinates. Even though we are not entirely clear on what is going to happen, we do not want to discourage our employees from doing their job. This issue has raised a lot of havoc and concern within our department, de-motivating the morale of our staff. With all employees being evaluated absentees and turnovers are the last thing this department needs, because it is costing InterClean millions of dollars in lost training and productivity. Our behaviors as managers affect our staff greatly because they mimic our drive, passion, loyalty, and trust in this company therefore we need to make sure we are setting a great example.

Also this coming Friday, February 5th I would like to hold a department meeting. In this meeting our team will discuss the best practices in working within a diverse work environment. As we merge with Enviro-Tech in the weeks to come we will notice that InterClean will become more diverse within our staff as well as with our clientele. A key source of problems in mergers, acquisitions, and strategic international alliances are differences in corporate culture. Working with different cultures may differ from the way employees are expected to behave as well as treat one another. Some good practices…...

Memo Review

...Memo Review Your name here BCOM/230 August 26, 2013 Instructor name Memo Review Whenever an individual is in any type of a leadership role with their employer, it will be necessary to communicate with other department managers and possibly even upper level management. In this scenario, the boss has requested an overview of LIFO versus FIFO as it would apply to their company. The memo that will be submitted to the boss must be professional. The figures presented in the memo should be as precise as possible so that company officials will not be misled. The use of jargon in a memo is not professional and is not a good idea. Members of the accounting department use jargon when interacting with each another. Jargon and clichés are not uncommon while communicating within your department, but should be avoided when communicating with other department heads and management. This kind of treatment would inform readers that the author doesn't have particular concern for them and the current case is dealt with much in the same manner as others (Lesikar, Flatley, & Rentz, 2008). The memo presented to us for our assignment is an “inter-departmental memo” so the language used in it is acceptable. However, the memo that will be sent to the boss is official correspondence and the content should be presented in a professional manner. The memo alters from casual to official while revising the data. In this scenario, the memo under review is about...

It is important that as leaders we handle this transition with professionalism, a positive attitude, and confidence. The way we conduct ourselves through the merger will set the tone for the rest of the work force. The merger will present many challenges, apprehension, uncertainty and in some workers fear. A few of the reasons you reached the level of becoming a supervisor/leader (they are synonymous) is because you have proven to be trusted in making the right choice in hard decisions, you conduct yourself as a professional, demonstrate excellent people skills, and is not afraid of hard work. I need for you all to continuing exhibiting the same work ethics during this exciting time. When your workers see that you are positive, upbeat, and productive they will have the same attitude. If you show signs of stress, negativity, and poor behavior. The employees will think that something is going wrong. They might start thinking the worst including that personnel cuts will occur. What we will end up with are unhappy people who will lead to decreased work productivity and chaos. We will continue to practice and uphold our social, moral, and legal responsibilities during......

Inter-Office Memo

...SALEM, OREGON INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDUM To: All Departments, and Officer Employees From: Colonel Pat Bacon, Director of the State Police Department Date: May 21, 2014 Subject: Planting Evidence, Perjury, and Falsifying Police Reports It has come to the attention of this department that there have been reports of questionable conduct from some of our officer employees. Police officers that are supposed to enforce the law, at times become more aggressive than the criminals themselves. How much corruption there is and knowing its characteristics are important steps to understanding corruption and then being able to successfully control corruption without illegal means is what is done. We uphold the laws, not bend them or break them to apprehend suspects, and criminals, “the bad guys.” Because of these reports, there is a serious threat to our law enforcement, which could compromise the values of our profession and our high ethical standards, and it is called “Noble Cause Corruption.” Noble Cause Corruption Noble cause corruption policing can be thought of as “doing something bad that will have a good end.” Peter Northouse This happens a lot when good police officers care too much about their job and the people of the community, and in order to get criminals off the streets they begin to do bad things because they truly believe that the overall “outcome will be good or justify the means.” Peter Northouse Examples of noble cause corruption can...

Regents of the univesity of california | date: | March 27, 1976 | | | As everyone knows there is a new ruling for the Tarasoff v. Regents of the University of California. The ruling two years ago caused a debate on the ruling of professionals getting charged and those that weren’t, so changes have now taken affect. As professionals in the human service field it is important for us to know that now if a client expresses they have a plan to kill someone, it is our obligation to break confidentiality and inform the potential victim and or the police of the thoughts of your client. This may be a tough thing for some of us to do because of the ethical responsibilities we have with our clients but now this is a part of our legal responsibilities to protect the welfare of the society by having the duty to protect individuals who are bing threatened with bodily harm by a client naming it “duty to warn and duty to protect” (in the previous ruling it was only known as “duty to warn”. This is also known as a “Tarasoff warning” in place, meaning where a mental health professional is required to warn of a credible danger to a reasonably identifiable victim. Duty to protect includes clients that may be suicidal. Human services code of ethics entitles us as professionals to let the......

Clean Cooking

...CLEAN COOKING The environment can greatly benefit from the widespread adoption of clean cooking stoves and clean cooking practices because it can greatly reduce the amount of pollutants that are released into the atmosphere. Black carbon is created through the combustion of biomass like wood, dung, and charcoal. This in turn leads to deforestation as people cut down trees to provide fuel for cooking. Consequently, deforestation leads to the loss of bio-diversity and ofthe quality of water. Black carbon, or soot, isone of the most significant sources of climate change and can be greatly reduced with the introduction of clean stoves. This is because unlike carbon dioxide, black carbon or soot, can be washed away within a couple of weeks whereas the greenhouse gas lingers for an extended time period. One of the ways clean stoves helps the impoverished community is the amount of time they save from collecting the necessary materials for their stove and the health benefits received from using clean fuels. With more time available to them, they can find other constructive uses of their time like going to school, finding a job, or running a small business. Clean stoves also require less fuel and materials which allows an already poverty-stricken area to save what little money they have improving some standards of living. All sectors would be needed to run a successful campaign. Governments would have to recognize the environmental and social impact that these......

Clean Edge Memo

...MEMO To: Dr. Marlys Mason From: Alyssa Cortez Data: October 5, 2014 Re: Clean Edge Razor-Splitting Hairs in Product Positioning Background Since 1962 Paramount has been regarded worldwide as a respectable and well run company. With major competitors such as: Prince (Cogent and Cogent Plus), Benet (Vitric), The Tempest and The Naiv, it is extremely impressive that they continue to improve within the market. After $13 billion in global sales and over $7 million in profit in 2009 alone, Paramount Health and Beauty Company began working on what they believed to be their golden goose. SWOT Analysis Paramount is a strong brand that has established a positive association and trust with its consumers. The Company also has the funds to afford over $19 million/year in advertising spending. They provide the most technologically advanced product in the market. Currently, in the razor market, there is no other product that compares. Unfortunately, Paramount has their fair share of weaknesses as well. Launching the Clean Edge razor in the wrong segment could potentially decimate the whole company. Another weakness of Paramount is that they don’t hold a position in the super premium segment of the mainstream market, which accounts for 37.2% of the total non-disposable razor market. As far as future growth goes, Paramount has plenty of opportunities. They are already growing and have plenty of room to advance further in this super premium market.......

Clean Coal

...Clean Coal Daniel Robinson DeVry University Understanding what clean coal means can be confusing and the potential impact on the environment can be confusing. Hearing the words clean coal makes most of us think we have finally found a way to actually make coal a clean sustainable resource to generate our electricity. After reading “The Environmental Injustice of ‘‘Clean Coal’’: Expanding the National Conversation on Carbon Capture and Storage Technology to Include an Analysis of Potential Environmental Justice Impacts” I have come to agree with the article that coal will never be clean in a way that is feasible to anyone that has to live near these coal plants. First let’s define clean coal, clean coal as Liebert says is “The term ‘‘clean coal’’ is used to refer to burning coal in a way that reduces emissions or otherwise lessens coal’s environmental impact. ‘‘Clean coal’’ technology includes ‘‘washing’’ coal of minerals and other polluting components, gasification, and the treating of flue gases to lessen sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and mercury emissions. In the context of climate change, the term ‘‘clean coal’’ is used most frequently as shorthand for technology that burns coal more efficiently and or decreases its CO2 emissions. While some might read that and think that we could find a way to get coal without having any CO2 emissions which is not the case. While carbon capture and storage sounds like fantastic technology that has three stages of......

Clean Edge

...Arguments for launching Clean Edge as a niche product A primary of launching the Clean Edge as a niche product is that the company would incur a lot less cannibalization of its Pro and Avail product lines, which allowed Paramount to capture the unit-volume market-leader position in 2009. Though a cannibalization rate of 35% is expected with the launch of Clean Edge as a niche product, the rate is significantly lower than the 60% expected if Clean Edge was positioned as a mainstream brand. As Rosenberg indicated, a niche positioning strategy would be a better fit to the company’s existing product portfolio. Furthermore, the niche positioning strategy would incur considerably lower marketing expenses than the mainstream positioning strategy. Marketing expenses for the niche positioning strategy is $15 million for the first year and $16 million in the second year. The niche option is much lower compared to the expected marketing expenses for the mainstream option, which would cost $42 million in the first year and $39 million in the second year. A strong quantitative argument could be made for launching Clean Edge as a niche product because it would cost $50 million less in marketing expenses over the course of two years. Moreover, greater advertising expenditures for the mainstream launch may not be justifiable given the fact that the cost of advertising is increasing greater than the rate of retail sales dollars in the super-premium segment. The scenario analysis......
