“Bon est bio, mais c’est quoi le Bio? Natural, good, beautiful and without pesticides....Bio is good, but what is Bio?

Factor Influencing International Hrm

...1.5.2 Defining ‘cross-cultural management’ Unsurprisingly, there is no one clear or definitive answer to the question of what defines cross-cultural management. The answer depends on which perspectives on ‘management’ and the relation of this process to ‘culture(s)’ we choose to emphasise. Mead and Andrews define cross-cultural management as the ‘development and application of knowledge about cultures in the practice of international management, when the people involved have different cultural identities’ (Mead and Andrews, 2009: 16). This can be compared with the definition given by Laurie Jackson in his book International HRM: A Cross-Cultural Approach (2002). He emphasises the importance of ‘examining the contributions of different cultures in interaction’. This emphasis on the complexities of ‘interaction’ or ‘communication’ between ‘cultures’ (i.e. groups of people or stakeholders) is one shared by Mead and Andrews, and it is developed throughout this course, where we discuss several case studies from the field of human resource management (HRM) and international human resource management or IHRM (cf. Briscoe and Schuler, 2004; Harris, et al., 2003). The text Cross-cultural Marketing, edited by Rugimbana and Nwankwo (2003, from which you’ll be reading in Unit 5) highlights the importance of communicating one’s cultural identity in international and cross-cultural management. The book eschews the traditional practice of asking how far marketing ideas......

Factors Influencing Biodiversity

...3.1.1 Factors influencing biodiversity Globally, biodiversity levels vary widely across land and oceans. Both physical and human factors influence levels of biodiversity and these factors operate at a variety of scales from local to global. Global physical factors such as variations in climate, play a major role in controlling the presence or absence of limiting factors, such as: • Temperature • Availability of light • Humidity • Nutrient supply • etc. An absence of limiting factors leads to high levels of primary productivity and the energy produced leads to high levels of biodiversity. Conversely, where limiting factors are strongly evident, e.g. in cold temperatures such as the Arctic, arid regions like deserts, darkness, etc. this will lead to low levels of biodiversity. The size of the area is another key factor, as the larger the continuous area the more species that can flourish in it. Hence the recent ‘size matters’ mantra, and the creation of huge transnational conservation areas such as the Peace Parks of Africa. Locally, there are numerous factors that may have an impact on biodiversity: • Disturbance from a natural disaster e.g. hurricanes, volcanoes, tsunamis on both land and ocean ecosystems, Asian tsunami 2004 – destroyed some mangrove forests • Quasi-natural disasters, e.g. wildfires (Victoria, Australia 2009), hunting, fishing, slash and burn farming • Eutrophication from high-tech agricultures Physical factors Human factors • Climate, e...

Factors Influencing Communication

...CO2520 Project Part 1: Factors Influencing Communication: Baseball Erik L. Hansen ITT-Technical Institute Author Note Erik L Hansen, Department of Drafting & Design, ITT-Technical Institute, Boise. Correspondence concerning this project should be addressed to Erik L Hansen, E-mail: erikhansen26@gmail.com Introduction. The grass is freshly cut, uniforms recently pressed and washed. The summer-night-air is filled with the smell of functioning concession stands and the sounds of many conversations. Players and fans take their positions, the players trot onto the field and fans get comfortable in their seats. The show is about to begin. First pitch is thrown and a stadium relying on communication is operational once more. Foremost, this research paper will continue with the assumption that the reader understands the basics of the game of baseball and/or has been to a game. As we know every action within the stadium requires some sort of communication. The game of baseball itself is a game where the most successful team communicates superbly. Baseball relies on communication from preparation, studying, and putting the game-plan through action to in-game adjustments and secret signs. Delving deeper into the stadium we discover that the game is not the only thing relying on forms of communication. Concession stand employees will need to use their listening skills to appropriately form a customer’s order, stadium signs will properly direct fans to their...

The amount of money spent on health expenditures varies as well, and is specific to each country. In countries with a high income, such as the United States and France, the per capita health expenditure averages over 3,000 USD, while in countries that are considered resource poor, such as Israel and Mexico, the average per capita amount is only 30 USD. (Ke, Saksena, & Holly, 2011). Wide variations in health expenditure are also specific to each country’s economic development. Less resourceful countries have been noted to only spend less than 3% of GDP on health, while other, more economically developed countries spend more than 12% of GDP on health. (Ke et al.,2011).

This is in line with Norwegian education policy. However, progress and performance are a problem. This is costly both for the individual and for the institutions. This paper examines which student-related factors seem to have a bearing on performance and progress. The analytical model includes sex, age, ability, parenthood, housing expenditures, social background and motivation. Aditional factors which are included are how many hours the students spend on their studies as well as how much and when the students have paid work. The paper also examines whether the study programme may influence performance and progress. Data was gathered in a quantitative study. 565 students in a Norwegian University College completed structured questionnaires. Five explanatory factors were found to have a bearing on performance and progress: ability, motivation, time spent on studies, time spent on paid work and social background. Some of these factors are interdependent. There......

Factors Influencing Attitudes to Food

...Discuss factors that influence our attitudes to food (8+16) One factor that influences our attitudes to food is social learning theory which states that through observation of other people eg. role models such as parents , we learn and develop our own attitudes and behaviours to food. Children may learn their attitudes to eating behaviour through observing parents and their preferences and the satisfaction they receive from food and through vicarious leaning, they replicate the behaviour themselves. Brown and Ogden’s research has shown a correlation between parent and child behaviour towards food, including body dissatisfaction, snacking between meals and eating motivations. Social learning may also occur through the media which highlights different attitudes to food that people observe and learn from. However attitudes towards food are a result of more than just social learning. Evolutionary explanations suggest that our preferences to fatty or sweet foods are a direct result of adaptation. There is research support for the social learning theory. Meyer and Gast surveyed 10-12year olds and found a significant positive correlation between peer attitudes and eating patterns and it was found that the ‘likeability’ of peers was an important factor in how influential they were. Fisher et al also found support for how influential the social learning theory is in our attitudes to food, when studying mother and daughter relationships. It was found that the daughters eating......
