Server Turn-Over

Working in the restaurant industry managers have to deal with high turn-over issues with employees (mainly servers). Cheddars causal café is not exempt from this trending problem. The dilemmas that the management team is facing are: improperly trained staff, not enough staff and lack of management to help train the staff. In order for management to take control of the problem they had to perform an internal business research and truly understand why the servers chose to leave Cheddars.
The Business Research Process

The first step in the process is figuring out the problem or clarifying the research question. In this case the question would be how to overcome the high turn-over rate on the server staff. Management needs to identify the problem and figure out means to correct it. The next step would be to propose a research or in this case the managers decide on a plan of action to the problem. Next step is to plan a way to get the information from the servers. The management chose to have a meeting before the shift for a week and ask the servers what management can do to change the work atmosphere. This is considered the research design or the blueprint of how the research is to be designed. The fourth step would be to gather the data and prepare it. The management planned a meeting the following week to discuss their findings from the pre-shift meetings. The fifth step would be to interpret the data that was collected. They can do this in the meeting that was planned the following week. After discussing their findings the management time found out that most of the servers complained about not being properly trained. The final step is report the results.

...Same Planet-different worlds Growing up partly in Nigeria and in the United States gave me an insight into how different and sometimes similar cultures and values are. I was fourteen years old when my family relocated from Nigeria to the U.S, but at that age I was already groomed by my parents and society to act and think a certain way. This was a mindset that was ingrained in me right from a tender age. There was one acceptable way to act in public and quite a different one with family and friends. As limiting as that was, it was an acceptable lifestyle in Nigeria. Coming to the U.S. and experiencing the differences in culture was a big shock to me. It was not an easy transition. I quickly found out that some of the things frowned upon in Nigeria were acceptable in this society. Some of the fundamental cultural differences between these societies are in their outlooks on divorce, homosexuality, and the roles of women. One of the differences that struck me was how briefly marriages lasted in America because of divorce. Although many marriages are arranged in Nigeria, married couples tussle to sort issues out for better or for worse, no matter what the situation is. I, like most Nigerians, believe marriage is a form of blessing if married couples are willing to grow old together. The divorce process is fairly easy in America; however, most couples will file for divorce at the first sign of trouble. My first year as a freshman in America was devastating mainly because many......

Same-Sex Marriage

...Same Sex Marriage Recently the discussion of same sex marriage has been a hot topic in both the political and religious arenas. This controversial issue has caused many citizens to take a solid stance on same sex marriages based on his or her morals, beliefs, and viewpoints. Popular reasons that citizens considered when deciding their stance are civil rights, religion, parenting, and financial matters. This paper will break down the pros and cons of each of the reasons listed and attempt to come to a conclusion of should same sex marriages be legalized in the state of Californians. Civil Rights The Constitution of the United States was written in 1776, which during that time there were no gender specifications noted pertaining to the recognition of a legal marriage. Same sex marriage debate is so large that in 1996, President Bill Clinton signed for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which clarified that marriage is between a man and woman. The main reason gay and lesbian couples are fighting hard to legalize same sex marriage is so those couples will be allowed to and benefit from the same government, financial, and legal stances as heterosexuals marriages. Several states allow partnerships or civil union for same sex couples, however, they are denied certain rights given to heterosexual couples (National Conference of State Legislatures, 2013). Because of the growing debate of same sex marriages, President Obama administration said that it would no longer......

Same Sex

...Same sex marriage is not only wrong but immoral for these reasons alone it should not be allowed. The definition of marriage as stated by Merriam-Webster is “the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.” (N.A., 2011) This union was started as a religious recognition of the union between man and woman and what began in the church was upheld and made a legal binding contract under the rule of law. In order to adapt to the changes society has undergone in accepting same sex relationships the rule of law adapted domestic partnerships. Domestic partnerships were created to include partners of the same sex, but the law would not recognize these unions as marriage. If marriage were changed to adapt to same sex couples then the sanctity of marriage would be eroded and this would lead to a slippery slope for what we define marriage as. It wouldn’t be far off before people would be petitioning to have polygamy made legal. Osama Bin Laden was a polygamist that was killed with one of his wives in the room, whom he used as a human shield. Is this what we want our society to become? If you feel that same sex marriage is a right then this is the society that you want. Domestic partnerships should be enough for same sex couples asking for the definition of marriage to be completely changed is wrong and selfish of these groups. Marriage once adapted to meet same sex couples could potentially be...

Something is preventing some individuals, or states to accept same-sex marriage, and this is because of the expected framework of the society which lies upon religious and moral beliefs regarding ethnocentric fallacy. In the Article Narrative, “As Rulings Are Announced, Cheers and Tears Among Waiting Crowd”, and “Defense of Marriage Act Overturned”, Media narrative, it is now legal for same-sex marriage in Washington. After waiting for days for the Defense of Marriage Act, a decision of legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington is finally made. Even though numerous changes are adapted, many still are not.

...Pink Triangle Experiences I was a person who maintain a neutral position on homosexuality because I want to respect their sexual preferences, and want to understand people who do not like homosexuality at same time. I thought homosexuality was their choices so people who against the homosexuality could show their feelings. However, wearing pink triangle for two weeks change my thoughts and perspectives on homosexuality. In this paper, I will address how I felt and how my thoughts changed last two weeks. When professor distributed pink triangles during class, I was not sure whether I pick up or not because my community is not open to homosexuals, and I was worried about how people would view me. Also, I felt lots of pressures before I picked up pink triangle pin because all of my classmates chose to get a pink triangle. The reason I chose to get a pink triangle was because I want to test myself about homosexuality and how I view them deep in my heart.

...Maitlyn Davisworth ENG 102 Professor Smille The Injustice Involving Same-sex Marriage The legalization of gay marriages has been argued and talked about in our society for the earlier few years. It really is a very questionable subject matter. It is difficult for a lot of people to accept gay marriages. Writing a same sex marriage essay is becoming a more and more popular assignment, giving scholars the possibility to express their ideas on this particular matter. Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is marriage between two people of the same biological sex and/or gender identity. Legal recognition of same-sex marriage or the possibility to perform a same-sex marriage is sometimes referred to as marriage equality or equal marriage, particularly by supporters.( In early times, same-sex marriage was not considered taboo and in many cultures, it was encouraged. Random History (2011) explains that in the early civilizations of Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt, the union between couples of the same-sex was recognized by the kingdom. During Greek’s early years, attraction between a man and another man was normal and was considered an expression of love. “The main considerations in same-sex relationships in early history were often love, beauty, and excellence of character rather than gender” (Random History, 2011, p.1). Same-sex marriages were often believed to be more pure than a heterosexual marriage. Marriage was believed to be the union of two people......

Same Sex Parenting

...Same-sex Parenting Shaelyn Leckington Comm/215 July 21, 2014 Julie McCabe Same-sex Parenting Everyone should have the opportunity to parent a child if they wish too. It is an experience unlike many others to have a child. A child to love, nurture, and help mold into an adult. People of all different genders, races, and ethnic backgrounds have been able to adopt children. Even single individuals can adopt a child. However, there is an issue that has made itself known, most of society frowns upon same-sex parenting. This makes it hard for same-sex couples to adopt children. There are those in the community that believe same-sex couples should not be parents. They believe that the children of same-sex parents will struggle with development, psychological, educational and, sexual orientation issues. There have been many studies that show there are no pertinent effects on children of same-sex couples. Certain studies, conducted by William Meezan and Jonathan Rauch, show that there is nothing to support that same-sex parents are unfit to hold parental roles. There is no scientific evidence to prove it. However, research does imply that same-sex couples are just as likely to maintain safe, constructive, healthy and, supportive living environments for their children as opposite- sex parents. There are little to no differences in the development of the children from these couples. When the rare difference is found they sometimes favor the same-sex parented...

...Should Same Sex Couples be allowed to adopt? Tanisha Culberson 08/30/2015 Should Same Sex Couples be allowed to adopt? Society's image of a perfect family includes a father and a mother of the opposite sex. People feel this is what's best for a child. What a bunch of baloney this is just a stereotype. What happened to the best interest of the child? Why are there so many same-sex couples getting rejected by adoption agencies? Why are there so many children being kicked out of the school system because they have gotten too old. In the United States, more than 397,122 children are waiting to be adopted. Approximately 2,000,000 same-sex couples are interested in adopting, but religious groups are against it, and a lot of adoption agencies associated with different religious groups. Most religious groups feel as though same-sex couples should not even marry. They believe in God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, who gave them the right to judge? Same-sex couple's path to parenting is not easy. It depends on state laws and lots of money. In addition to same-sex adoption, it could help move children out of the welfare system, which would create more money for the state. Homosexual parents are more motivated and committed because they are parents by choice, not by accident. How many children are placed up for adoption by opposite sex couples?

Bill counters with the idea of offering the same promotion in November, during the heart of the buying reasons. In this case, the promotion increases November’s demand by 50 percent due to new customers attracted to Game Girl.

We Are the Same

...We are the same from the inside why should race and gender matter? Holmes is trying to make people understand that our social inequalities are being perceived as normal when in reality they aren't. He talks about how migrant workers have been treated for years being looked down upon as something less in our society. The whole concept is that Holmes is exposing the harsh reality and that we need to change the way we treat certain people politically, legally, and symbolically. Moreover, another label society has imprinted as normal in the past, but has come a long way, is the ideal of men being better than women ultimately getting the upper hand. Gender inequality has made a major impact on our society throughout the years making changes in how our politics, culture (socially), and economics are handled and seen. We, as a society, need to keep encouraging people to look beyond stereotypes and recognize the contributions that each person, female or male, can make to the workplace and our social order. Furthermore, women have had to fight for equality in politics in the United States by winning the right to vote, as well as a seat at the political table. The Nineteenth Amendment in our Constitution gave women the right to vote in 1920. Although, gender stereotypes about female politicians and voters still exist till this day. Since gaining the right to vote, women have worked in many levels of government in the United States. For example, President Ronald Reagan named Sandra Day...
