As you read their case, give consideration to how you might help communicate with the employee to remedy the conflict. Answer the critical thinking questions at the end of the case?
Bob is a 27-year old who is a food service manager at a casual dining restaurant. Bob is responsible for supervising and managing all employees in the back of the house. Employees working in the back of the house range in age from 16 years old to 55 years old. In addition, the employees come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. For many, English is not their primary language.
Bob is Serve Safe certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in the kitchen but he admits it’s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safety basics (for example, appropriate hygiene and hand washing, time/temperature, and cleaning and sanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some new employees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, most employees get some kind of food safety training. The owners of the restaurant are supportive of Bob in his food safety efforts because they know if a food safety outbreak were ever linked to their restaurant; it would likely put them out of business. Still, the owners note there are additional costs for training and making sure food is handled safely.
One day Bob comes to work and is rather upset even before he steps into the restaurant. Things haven’t…...

...What are the advantages Blades could gain from importing from and/or exporting to a foreign country such as Thailand? Blades would have several advantages if they started to import and or export from Thailand. Since rubber and plastic are cheaper when imported from a foreign country such as Thailand, this would increase Blades’ net income and reduce their cost of goods sold. Since several of Blades competitors are already importing components from Thailand, importing would increase Blades’ competitiveness in the United States. If Blades is considering longer range plans in Thailand, importing from and exporting to Thailand may present it with an opportunity to establish initial relationships with some Thai suppliers. Also if they expand to Thailand, Blades, Inc. could be one of the first firms to sell roller blades there and this would give them a competitive advantage. 1. What are some of the disadvantages Blades could face as a result of foreign trade in the short run? In the long run? There are several disadvantages to foreign trade. The currency fluctuations in Thailand dollar would affect Blades. For instance the dollar cost of imported inputs may become more expensive over time.

...Cloud Computing What is cloud computing? It is difficult to come up with a precise definition of cloud computing. In general terms, it’s the idea that your computer’s applications run somewhere on the “cloud”, that is to say, on someone else’s server accessed via the Internet. Instead of running program applications or storing data on your own computer, these functions are performed at remote servers which are connected to your computer through the Internet or other connections. In telecommunications, a “cloud” is the unpredictable part of any network through which data passes between two end points. In cloud computing the term is used to refer generally to any computer, network or system through which personal information is transmitted, processed and stored, and over which individuals have little direct knowledge, involvement, or control. With more reliable, affordable broadband access, the Internet no longer functions solely as a communications network. It has become a platform for computing. Rather than running software on your own computer or server, Internet users reach to the “cloud” to combine software applications, data storage, and massive computing power. A September 2008 Pew Internet and American Life Study found that 69% of online Americans have utilized some form of cloud computing. It’s interesting to note that cloud computing is really nothing new. It's the modern version of the 1960’s-era computer timesharing model. That model was based upon the high cost of......

...What is Agency Problems When a principal hires an agent to carry out specific tasks, the hiring is termed a "principal-agent relationship," or simply an "agency relationship." When a conflict of interest between the needs of the principal and those of the agent arises, the conflict is called an "agency problem." In financial markets, agency problems occur between the stockholders (principal) and corporate managers (agents). While the stockholders call on the managers to take care of the company, the managers may look to their own needs first. In finance, there are two primary agency relationships: * Managers and stockholders * Managers and creditors PROBLEMS BTW STOCKHOLDERS versus MANAGER and STOCKHOLDERS versus CREDITORS... 1. Stockholders versus Managers * If the manager owns less than 100% of the firm's common stock, a potential agency problem between mangers and stockholders exists. * Managers may make decisions that conflict with the best interests of the shareholders. For example, managers may grow their firms to escape a takeover attempt to increase their own job security. However, a takeover may be in the shareholders' best interest 2. Stockholders versus Creditors * Creditors decide to loan money to a corporation based on the riskiness of the company, its capital structure and its potential capital structure. All of these factors will affect the company's potential cash flow, which is a creditors' main concern. *......
