d.light Case Study

Executive Summary d.light is a social global enterprise providing affordable solar-powered solutions designed for the two billion individuals in the developing world without access to reliable energy, founded by Sam Goldman and Ned Tozun. There are offices located in Africa, China, South Asia, and the United States. d.light has successfully improving lives of over 50 million people by selling over 10 million solar light and power products in 62 countries. d.light’s dedication is to provide the most reliable, affordable, and accessible solar lighting and power systems for developing world, with a goal of reaching 100 million individuals by 2020 ("About Us," n.d.). For Profit or Non- Profit? “d.light is dedicated to providing distributed solar energy solutions for households and small businesses that transform the way people all over the world use and pay for energy ("About Us," n.d.).” The mission of d.light is mainly focusing on providing distributed solar energy to households and small businesses. Unlike missions of other organizations, d.light does not mention that one of its mission, nor its goal and vision, is to provide a return for its stakeholders. Therefore, based on what d.light is doing, it is reasonable to turn d.light into a non-profit organization. However, before making decision on which module to apply on d.light, the organization must understand the difference between for profit and non-profit organization. One of the largest differences is source of capital. The current situation for d.light is shortage on high liquidity assets, in other words, cash. A for profit company receives its capital from investors who often look for short term return, but it hardly fits d.light’s identity as a social enterprise. In addition, there are not many investors willing to invest a large…...

Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, visiting Berlin, urged the German government to do more to boost lackluster domestic demand, which the U.S. and others argue is partly to blame for the anemic economic growth in the euro zone as a whole. Do Tax Cheats Solve the U.K.’s Productivity Puzzle? URL:http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2013/10/22/do-tax-cheats-solve-the-u-k-s-productivity-puzzle/?KEYWORDS=productivity abstract: Economists in Britain have long been scratching their heads over the nation’s troubling “productivity puzzle.” Now Markit, the financial information provider that publishes the purchasing managers’ indexes used to gauge activity in the global economy, has tentatively suggested that former tax cheats might be muddying the waters. Britain has a bigger workforce than it did before it tipped into recession in 2008 yet is producing far fewer goods and services. This mismatch between output and jobs has led to a collapse in productivity, a measure of how effectively an economy uses its resources that’s an important driver of future growth prospects.

...News and Current Affairs Programme 1 ITN National and World News This programme is a national type and is broadcast right across the British Isles on a daily basis. It is not a specialist programme in the sense that it does not focus on one particular genre of news.eg sport, instead it covers every area and delivers it in a formal manner. The particular programme that I have taken notes on appeared on our screens and was broadcast on 10/10/10 at 6:00pm. It was presented by Alastair Stewart and Mary Nightingale and the headlines of each individual story were read out in the studio. This was then followed by images and graphics appearing on screen as the voice-overs of the news presenters could clearly be heard explaining the story. The first story that was covered was about how the Vitamin B could potentially benefit people that suffer from Alzheimer’s disease. The first part of this story used graphics on the screen as well as the use of voice-overs to narrate what the diagrams and statistics on screen meant. The story then progressed into interviews with experts on the matter, all of a medical background and with extensive knowledge in Alzheimer’s disease and also the Vitamin B. These interviews were taken in medical rooms with clear equipment and charts visible on camera the whole time to reiterate the issue. Finally the story was concluded with footage of old age pensioners who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and a summary voice over being made on......

Should Hr Managers Only Recruit Extraverts as Leaders?

...MOCK EXAM ‘In view of the clear link between extraversion and leadership, human resource managers should only recruit extraverts as leaders.’ Based on your knowledge of the trait, skill, and style approaches to leadership, do you agree with this statement? At first you would think that the answer is yes. A study of the big five model (openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, neuroticism) showed that there is a strong relationship between these personality traits and leadership, and that the strongest relationship is between extraversion and leadership (Judge). However, they are a few things that were not taken into consideration: people change behaviour over time, every situation needs a different approach and therefore people change behaviour over situations, there isn’t a relationship in between personality traits. By the last argument I am trying to say that it isn’t because a person is extravert that he is emotionally stable or that he is open minded. Therefore, a person can be extremely extravert but score poorly on other traits that are as important to be a good leader. When we look at the study of Judge and LePine about the bright and dark sides of personality, we see that here as well extraversion has its pro’s and con’s. It’s true that extraverted personalities are more likely to emerge and excel as leaders, and those have a higher job and life satisfaction. But these personalities where associated with sensation and excitement seeking......

Sg Cowen: New Recruits

...Case analysis : SG Cowen – New Recruits 1. What are the key decision points used by S.G. Cowen in making hiring decisions? What is your evaluation of the process used by the firm?  SG Cowen utilized a well‐developed, tiered process to make hiring decisions on potential candidates. SG Cowen first conducts informational sessions at on‐campus recruiting events to describe the firm, its benefits and steps in the recruiting/hiring process. They use these first‐round interviews, in advance of the formal recruiting process, to assess how serious candidates are about the opportunity. SG Cowen then reviews the resumes submitted by interested students and holds open, on‐campus interviews. The firm also selects some of those interested students specifically for closed interviews. The pool of initial candidates is narrowed down to a few candidates through a second round of on campus interviews. The first key decision point for SG Cowen is to select candidates who are best qualified to make it through the “Super Saturday” final selection process in New York City. Recruiters focus on identifying candidates that possess the skills to succeed in the company’s day‐to‐day operations and have the personality to fit the organization’s culture. During the Super Saturday event, the thirty candidates are each interviewed by five senior bankers. Following the interviews, the senior bankers gather to determine which candidates should be extended offers. At this final key decision point, the......

News

...News The News is a wonderful and scary thing at the same time. I personally steer clear of the news as it tends to blow matters way out of proportions and with being in the military I rather be briefed on things of national security by my superiors vice the local news that only gets pebbles from the locals. I think that the news can be good at times, but in my experiences it tends to stress society out way more than it needs to be. An example of this is I have been to Bahrain numerous times, and all my mother would see on the television is riots and unruly behavior there. I on the other hand did not watch the news, got the security brief from my superiors and carried on my mission. While I was there it was nothing as what my mother and the news had depicted. Every time I have been there it has been peaceful and the locals have always been so very nice. Audience The intended audience was originally for locals, as it was broadcasted on the local news channels. The written news article I chose was from New York Times. Since the incident occurred in Phoenix, AZ, I purposefully chose the New York Times as it is located across the country. This choice makes for a better comparison of data from across state lines. Credible MSNBC and the New York Times are both credible sources that individuals rely on everyday to hear anything from the weather to local in international news. Both of these reports were similar in nature. The New York Times tends to go more in depth, so their...

...discuss.com.hk/viewthread.php?tid=11402674 It creates a ripple effect; more job openings occur as employees are moved about. It lowers the morale of those employees not selected for the position. It may result in stagnation since new outlooks and ways of doing things are not being brought into the firm. It creates negative internal competition for the position. There are some drawbacks to internal recruitment. Since there are limited opportunities for advancement, there is often negative competition among employees for openings. Then those who are not selected may feel demoralized. Not bringing in fresh ideas to the firms can result in stagnation; this is often referred to as inbreeding or the cloning of employees. Finally, as openings are filled internally, new openings are created, causing a ripple effect and more hiring. 它創建了一個連鎖效應,更多的就業機會,為員工發生轉移的問題。 它降低了員工的士氣那些沒有入選的位置。 它可能會導致停滯,因為新的前景和處事方式不被帶入公司。 它創建內部競爭的不利地位。 也有一些缺點內部招聘。因為有晉升機會有限,有員工之間的競爭往往是負面的開口。那麼那些誰不選擇可能會感到士氣低落。不引進新的想法的公司可能會導致停滯,這是通常被稱為近親繁殖或克隆的員工。最後,開口填補國內,創造新的開口,引起了連鎖反應,更聘用。 Disadvantage Inbreeding: One drawback of extensive internal recruiting is the reduced likelihood of innovation and new perspectives. A lack of new employees from the outsides leads to a lack of new ideas and approaches. • EEO Criteria: A use of the internal pool for the consideration of vacant positions can lead to conflicts with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

How to Recruit and Choose Employees

...How to Recruit and Choose Employees In our economy business and corporations have to select qualified and experienced employees. Yet it is always determined on information that is brought to the table when selecting these new employees. Some employees that are selected are by these different processes such as help-wanted advertisement, private employment agencies, and by internet recruiting or by employee referrals (Justin G. Longenecker, 2013). These different types of ways determine whether or not an employee is hired and if they have a good back ground and a resume. Now when people hire through help-wanted advertisements, they tend to post signage in the front of their store or by placing ads on billboards so that everyone can see. Even though, some business will use things like television ads, newspaper ads, or even radio advertisement, it tends to help their process of hiring new candidates into their company. While other companies will tend to use private employee agencies that will help these companies select the potential employee. Some private employee agencies will even select these employees to work for them after their term of service is over. This is why they tend to do things like evaluate applications to select the proper candidates to interview them (Adduci, 2009). Otherwise they will call their references to see if they have any information on the candidates that they have selected (Adduci, 2009). While many companies use these other methods it is......

Sg Cowen: New Recruits

...S9-402-028 REV: JANUARY 19, 2006 THOMAS DELONG VINEETA VIJAYARAGHAVAN SG Cowen: New Recruits We are who we recruit. — SG Cowen professional Chip Rae, director of recruiting at SG Cowen, looked out the conference room window at the falling flakes and wondered how fast the snow was accumulating. Most of the firm’s bankers had come in from Connecticut or Westchester to participate in the Super Saturday recruiting event, and he knew they were anxious to get home before the weather deteriorated and made travel dangerous. The interviews had finished at noon, and the candidates from various graduate schools had left for their flights right away. Now, the bankers were eating lunch, discussing interview results and making decisions. They were sitting in “Giants Stadium,” the bank’s largest conference room, and Rae had set the tables up in a U-shape so that he could stand in the front and still communicate with all 30 bankers. He posted placards with all the candidate names on the bulletin board and moved them around as they came up for discussion. The hiring meeting had moved rapidly through a number of candidates. The decision makers had agreed on candidates who were firm “yeses” and some other clear “nos.” Now was the tricky part: there were four candidates still left. Each person had some strong support among their interviewers but had also raised some questions. To reach the ideal class size after factoring in expected yield, Rae wanted to give out only......

S.G.Cowen: New Recruits

...1. What is your evaluation of the hiring process used by S.G.Cowen? S.G.Cowen uses the same pattern as the majority of Wall Street companies by making hiring decisions during the early winter and spring of each year so that the new associates can begin in the summer. Besides a full hiring process, the company selects some associates that already worked or are still working to S.G.Cowen utilising, therefore, internal sources of recruitment. First year associates selected internally can be analysts that after three years of collaboration (without attending a business school) are promoted or summer interns that attend a business school and are offered a full-time contract at the end of the internship. The hiring process of S.G.Cowen in terms of new outside associates (that had never worked for the company before) underlies on presentations made by bankers in “core business schools” (for example NYU or Cornell) to inform the students about their work environment and conditions. The aim of these presentations is to make sure that four questions are answered: “who are we, what do we do, what distinguish us from competitors and what are the next steps”. This ensures that everyone receives a clear, complete and similar message from all bankers. The next step is to focus on informational interviews to help them understand how students felt about working in a company like S.G.Cowen. These interviews are highly efficient because they work like a previous self-selection process. Only......

Generation Y Recruit Case Study

...Sarah Brown Module 1 Case Study November 22, 2015 Our Plan to Recruit Generation Y Employees Generation Y employees are a new breed of employees. This group of people are much different than the older generations of employees. In order to obtain successful recruitment, new strategies must come into effect. The Human Resource department needs to be well informed of Generation Y’s expectations and work ethics. They hold themselves to a different standard than previous generations have. Rather than external pressures, they have internal forces pushing them to perform. One of the major developments that separates Generation Y from any previous generation is the continued growth of technology. Their lifestyle revolves around technology. This can be both a positive and negative factor for us. Addressing the negative aspect, they can become a nuisance to the organization by misrepresenting themselves on social media. On a positive note, they can be more available to us and our clients through their mobile devices on an almost constant basis, and help us network and market our name. Generation Y are reticent. They have a lower power distance than Generation X. They consider upper management more their peers and are not afraid to make suggestions. As an organization and with our HR department, we must prepare ourselves and adapt to having this generation work for us. With the upcoming expected retirement of the baby boomer generation, we are faced with a deficit in our work......
