The restaurant is owned by a couple, the husband being the head chef and the wife managing the business side, along with their daughter to manage the bar and the four kitchen hands and chefs, also family members, this is a tightly run family business. The eight causal waitresses were mainly high school students and only two over 18 year olds to manage the bar. The waitresses’ duties included customer service, setting tables, dishes, phone orders for takeaway, dining in orders, serving drinks and food, checking on and clearing tables. The business is singularly run. The restaurant prides itself on serving authentic Cantonese cuisine within their relaxed, comfortable dining environment. The restaurant could hold around 60 guests with the option of an over flow room, if not having been hired out for a function, could also hold another 50 guests. Open for dinner six nights a week, and Sunday lunch. The restaurants environment is set as fun for all the family while the working environment could get to be more stressful than necessary.

Waitresses complained that the owner did not respect them or take responsibility if she was...

...Workplace Paper Week 2, MGT/308 Cova, Luis The workplace in America has changed substantially in the last 35 years. Many organizations that were once primarily staffed with white associates now employ people from of various ethnicities in large numbers. The change gradually occurred overtime; initiated by laws like Executive Order 11246 better known as affirmative action, which required federal contractors to hire employees without regard to race, religion or national origin. Although the law was implemented to target hiring practices of federal contractors it was eventually amended to include companies in the private sector as well. Although Affirmative Action laws were met with resistance initially, and still remains a controversial topic within companies today; many organizations are more open accepting of multicultural make up of their associates than ever before. Today some companies have created departments that are structured to managing diversity within an organization. Some companies have also implemented mandatory diversity training aimed at increasing awareness among all demographics within the organization.

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

...2004). Workers have a number of incentives for participating in training, including employment and job security as well as job improvements (e.g., promotion, better pay, and better working conditions). Personal satisfaction remains an important incentive for informal learning as well (Bloom & Lafleur, 1999). Some workers are expected to finance their own workplace training. Historically, many workers have completed specific, self-funded training courses prior to their hire. More recently, some employees have been expected to fund firm-specific training by foregoing pay during their “training” period. There appears to be a “union effect” in the provision and support for training, as set out in the following reading. Workers Education & Training In what ways is training contested terrain?

...2016 A Call to Action: How to Intervene in Workplace Harassment Workplace harassment is a significant violation in the modern work environment. According to the Canadian Human Rights Commission Workplace harassment "involves any unwanted physical or verbal behaviour that offends or humiliates you...Serious one-time incidents can also sometimes be considered harassment." (Canadian Human Rights Commission, 2013) If left uncheck accusations of workplace harassment could potentially put a business in trouble with the regulatory agencies. In the workplace, employees experience sexual, gender, and racial/ethnic harassment. The Ontario Ministry of Labour has developed recommendations and guidelines as a way to reduce the occurrences of workplace harassment. On the other hand, employers also a responsibility to put in place “best practices” for employees to follow to ensure a safe work environment for everyone. Intervention is needed because persons who experience harassment have a hard time fight back. Because laws on workplace harassment are not sufficient to punish harassers. The act of workplace harassment/violence on the job is considered a legal and ethical issue. According to Ontario law, employers, managers, and unions have to thwart actively and monitor occurrences of workplace harassment to be in compliance with the “Ontario human rights code.” (Labour, 2015) Additionally, employers must also provide training on workplace harassment when they hire new employees.......

...Learning and Development Identified Training needs: Some of the training needs we identified based on the case study were as follows: 1. Gender Sensitivity Training 2. Job skill training 3.
