Happy Trails Unionization Case Labor

Words: 584 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 95194936

org 2010). Such direct contact is definitely preferable to the distribution of anti-union literature; the ability an willingness to actually discuss issues with employees rather than simply providing them with printed statements that cannot be engaged in a dialogue shows an empathy and a desire to address issues that pamphlets and fliers cannot put forth (ABC.org 2010). Such actions would also undermine the solidarity of labor, causing larger problems for management (Jain 1979). Using these conversations to counter exaggerated claims made by the union, and even more importantly to make it clear why certain changes are necessary, and why certain other desires of the employees cannot be reasonably met, will increase the likelihood that an agreement between labor and management can be reached without the need for unionization and union representation in the relationship at Happy Trails (ABC.org 2010).

In conclusion, it is recommended that management and supervisors all be…… [Read More]

This is a service industry, so anything that can be done to provide better service is valuable. The shop will basically be able to see the customer's entire history when the customer calls in, and this allows for quick reference and being able to really be attentive to the customer's needs. In addition, the scheduling feature will help the shop become more efficient and generate more revenue as well. Further, new customer contacts can be stored in the database, and immediately the marketing program can be initiated.

Risks

Cost is a big risk. CRM programs are often not cheap. If the company doesn't use it aggressively to both increase efficiency and increase marketing efforts, then there is definitely the risk that the software will not pay for itself. Otherwise, there are really not that many risks. Security and privacy are minor risks, but the system is typically password protected and…… [Read More]

Happy Employees

Please answer the questions about making employees number one. How prevalent do you find this to be?

This is an important strategy that is utilized by employers to retain and attract the best talent. Evidence of this can be seen with data from a study conducted by World at Work. They are an independent pollster which examines total rewards programs. What they found is that 86% of firms were using some kind employee benefits initiative to motive everyone. In most cases, they average employer had between four and six of these programs. (Schrader, 2004) ("Trends in Employee ecognition," 2012)

Happy Birthday to Me

Words: 884 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 19937170

Happy Birthday

I was born on September 21, 1983 in the city of Landstuhl in Germany. Most people who think of Germany concentrate on the sad historical events of the 1930s and 1940s. The subsequent decades were all influenced by those events. In 1983, Germany was still separated by the Berlin all. Landstuhl was in est Germany. The division of the country, which ended in 1989, had a pronounced effect on me as will any child who grows up in a politically turbulent atmosphere. Besides the continued division of est and East Germany, there were individual events that affected the culture in which I was born. 1983 was an important year from Germany both for its citizens and for the nation's position as a potential world power. Internationally, Germany made an important endeavor to regain political power by finalizing the Solemn Declaration of the European Union. The political atmosphere was…… [Read More]

Happy Joshua Wolf Shenk Examines

Words: 1707 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50719792

First, because Vaillant was ultimately unable to answer his research question, Shenk's article reveals the complexity of psychological research and cautions future psychologists against looking for simplistic answers. Second, it highlights some parts of psychology that are considered woefully out-of-date, which serves as a caution that even the most cutting-edge theories may be found to lack support. Third, it describes a successful longitudinal study, in contrast to most psychological studies that focus on college-age students. The fourth reason the study should be included is simply because it is interesting; the study followed the lives of some men that went on to become the most powerful men of their day, and is the only psychological study to investigate men like that in-depth. The final reason the study should be included in the curriculum is that it serves as a great reminder that bias informs every part of how a researcher approaches…… [Read More]

Happy Yet The Happy Consumer

Words: 419 Length: 1 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 83892471

To afford what is considered a normal, middle class lifestyle requires an individual to work twice as much as people did in 1948 (During 73). hile "some cynics" say that additional leisure time and a shorter work week or year would result in simply more time spent in front of the television, the authors raise the intriguing possibility that the reason Americans watch so much television is a lack of creative energy. Americans work more hours than their European counterparts, are twice as productive at the office or factory than their grandparents, yet have less leisure time to enjoy the fruits of their labor. True enjoyment of leisure demands meaningful use of time, rather than the wasted time that comes at the end of a hard day. Sports, poetry, religion, and time spent with family are more valuable than the items that can be bought with money. Perhaps the current…… [Read More]

Happy Life for Philosophers Aristotle

Words: 2060 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 3441856

Ultimately, his system seems to the best for a number of reasons, including ease of understanding. Aristotle is clearly trying to define happiness while still noting how to live happily, while Epicurus is simply giving advice on how to live a happy life. Happiness certainly means different things to different people, as these two men show, but Epicurus seems to have a deeper understanding of it, while Aristotle is still struggling to define it, before he can live it. As a reader of both philosophies, it seems Epicurus was a just man who wanted happiness for everyone, while Aristotle was a snob, who felt the "masses" did not understand the true nature of happiness. They were shallow, and could not possibly lead fulfilled and happy lives. That alone makes Epicurus' beliefs more appealing and more equitable for all, rather than the "superior" beings Aristotle believes can only find happiness. Aristotle…… [Read More]

Happy Birthday I Know That You Must

happy birthday. I know that you must have heard this from me numerous times, but I would like to speak again of my undying love for you. You are the love of my life and my heart is filled when you walk in the room. I am but a humble man from Lebanon, and I came here to the United States looking for a better opportunity; yet love had other plans for me, and my venture here lead me to you, as well. I recall the day I first laid eyes on you as if it were yesterday. It was when I was working as a salesman in my brother's store in New York when luck had struck me and you walked into my life. My jaw dropped and my eyes felt as if they were deceiving me since I thought you were too beautiful to be real. It was…… [Read More]

Happy 2011 Film Psychology

Words: 715 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 11742140

Film Reflection: Happy (2011)

The 2011 documentary Happy seeks to understand a very simple question—what makes people happy? As well as interviewing professionals in the field of psychology, the filmmaker Roko Belic solicited the opinion of a wide range of individuals, spanning from a rickshaw driver, a victim of a car accident, and individuals from a variety of nations, occupations, and socio-economic statuses. Belic’s search was spawned by the fact that while some individuals in the developed world enjoy high levels of affluence, they are very rarely happy. How is it possible that someone can be happier as an impoverished Cajun fisherman or a rickshaw driver in India than someone with all of the material comforts one could want in an American suburb?

Belic found that community and a sense of purpose was the driving factor in what made people happy. For example, the rickshaw driver he interviewed said that…… [Read More]

Happiest Experience Finding Grace in

Words: 623 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 48923226



It is true that extreme happiness precedes a corresponding feeling of extreme sadness. In the midst of regular medical check-ups with my doctor, and constantly educating myself with child care and rearing, I was constantly plagued with worst-case scenario thoughts about me and my child's future. Would I be able to support my child? Would I be able to balance my studies with parenting? What if my child is growing, would I encounter the hardship people had so often reminded me whenever they see me with my child? These are the doubts and uncertainties I had to go through before; in fact, even though I now gave birth to a healthy child, I do experience these feelings of insecurity about our future.

But these insecurities give way to feelings of happiness and fulfillment when I think about the 'other facet' of our life. I now have someone I who would…… [Read More]

Is There Such a Thing as a Truly Happy Family What Makes a Family Happy

Words: 1648 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 31464677

Happy Family

Happy families have certain traits and attributes in common which make the relationship between their members stronger and more respectful for each other. The most important factors which make a happy family include love and care, effective communication, commitment, conflict resolution, and resilience. When family members show true care and respect for each other, resolve their family conflicts in a polite and friendly manner, show a high level of resilience in bitter circumstances, and ensure an effective communication without distance and time constraints, the members live like a happy and ideal family. Family happiness gets spoiled when hatred, mistrust, arguments, and criticism take the place of love, care, and mutual understanding.

Before discussing what makes a happy family and what elements contribute towards making a strong relationship among all family members, it is important to explain how the word 'family' has been defined by the…… [Read More]

Freudian Reading of The Short and Happy

Words: 1226 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 24276752

Freudian Reading of "The Short and Happy Life of Francis Macomber"

Diagnose Hemingway on the basis of the characters in Macomber. Freud felt that the work exemplified the author's mental state, so on the basis of the biography and the characters in the story, what might you conclude about Hemingway himself?

"The Short and Happy Life of Francis Macomber" is one of many of Ernest Hemingway's compelling and dense short stories. This paper will attempt to psychoanalyze Hemingway by critically reading and interpreting the themes, characters, and narrative of the short story. Hemingway was a man who was concerned with virility and masculinity as a writer and in his life. This story centers around a weak man married to a strong woman. Hemingway's female characters are often exceptionally alluring, but not because they are perfect or healthy. The women of Hemingway's stories and novels are imperfect, flawed, and often perceptibly…… [Read More]

Psalm 1 Happy Are Those

Words: 677 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 77155650

Therefore, one should be mindful not to adopt even the superficial or apparently innocuous habits of non-Believers because they are dangerous in that respect. The second passage refers to the fact that relishing the inherent beauty and perfection of the Lord's laws provide a consolation and a safe refuge from sinful temptations.

The third and fourth passages go together and suggest that Believers must remember that any apparent benefits, advantages, or joys that come with sinful behavior or non-belief are illusory and transitory at best. They have no real value and do not last because they are like the chaff that cannot withstand the slightest breeze. Conversely, the benefits and value of true Belief in the Lord's laws and teachings are long-lasting, substantial, and fully capable of withstanding the strongest challenges, let alone mere winds that are sufficient to reveal the sinfulness of non-belief.

The fifth passage provides reassurance to…… [Read More]
