An egalitarian company exists with equal rights for all employees regardless of job status, race, ethnicity, gender or political leanings. This organizational strategy can also slow down productivity and make it more difficult for your small business to change direction and anticipate risks.
Pros
-An egalitarian workplace promotes shared responsibilities among workers and a team work.
-Without hierarchies employees feel more willing and contribute their ideas and function as a more inclusive workforce.
-Provides a workforce that equally invests in your business and works hard toward the company's continued success.
Cons
-Slow to react to business risks and opportunities because of the lack of a managerial head to direct employee efforts.
-Lack of organizational structure in job description and employee roles in an egalitarian business can quickly lead to disorganization.
-Employees may struggle to reach a consensus on business direction and even the best methods to operate on a day-to-day basis.

Book Review of: Two Views of Women in Ministr

...INTRODUCTION……………………………………………………………………………..….1 SUMMARY…………………………………………………………………………………….1-3 EGALITARIAN EQUALITY…………………………………………………………..1-2 COMPLIMENTARIAN ROLES…………………………………………………….…2-3 CRITICAL INTERACTION……………………………………………………………………3-6 CONCLUSION………………………………………………………………………………....6-7 BIBLIOGRAPHY………………………………………………………………………………....8 Introduction Within Christian controversial topics that divide the Church as a whole Woman in Ministry is one of the most divisive. The two main sides of this debate are; egalitarian’s who believe there are no role differences in gender to authority or teaching in the church biblically. The complementarian view also known as the traditional view holds that men have a position of authority before God in church teaching and authority in the church and home governing. James Beck gathers four New Testament scholars two for each side on the issue and sets out to show case two arguments for each side and room for rebuttal in consideration of the New Testament scripture dealing with woman in ministry. With my own view being that of a soft complementation; women have a role in teaching and authority in the home and church setting but man has positional headship of responsibility, this position will be defended with these arguments in this book and other scholarly sources in this paper. Summary Egalitarian Equality The beginning chapter sees Linda Bellville present a strong egalitarian view with three critiques from the books other......

Women in Ministry

...views about women and their role in ministry. Although many people have argued their points, it seems as though there is no clear answer. This critique on Two Views on Women in Ministry will cover the views of multiple contributors. Each contributor, Linda L. Belleville, Craig L. Blomberg, Craig S. Keener, and Thomas R. Schreiner, present their respective views on two sides of the argument: The egalitarian and complementarian views. Each contributor have received their Ph.D and are currently professors at their respected universities. Brief Summary Two views of Women in Ministry is comprised of two different views written by four different contributors. The two views are egalitarian or complementarian thought. Each contributor explains their stance of what roles women have ministry and each defend their stance with valid arguments. When each contributor gives their argument to the side they take, the other contributors provide a response. Egalitarian Perspective Linda Belleville and Craig S. Keener are the two contributors who take the stance on the egalitarian perspective. They both agree that women should not be denied the liberty to operate in certain gifts. Belleville begins by asking numerous questions that many churches have struggles with in the last fifty years. Belleville states that “twenty five years ago only young adult males were challenged with the slogan “Uncle Sam Wants You”, but today women and men alike are encouraged to “be all......

Egilatarian

...Egalitarian is simple terms means that all the people are equal and deserve equal rights and opportunities. In the report I will share my thoughts about the effects on the business because of interior egalitarian structure and exterior egalitarian society1, 2. Egalitarian Structure: In the recent times the egalitarian styles of management are gaining popularity in the both the developed and the developing economies. Traditionally most corporate structures are hierarchical. In a hierarchical corporate structure, there are various tiers of management and people from each tier are assigned specific roles and responsibilities. People from low tier will have to report to the people from the higher tiers. But in egalitarian structure there are no power tiers and all the employees sharing equal responsibility and power2. According to me, the best style of management is a blend of both the traditional hierarchical structure and the new era egalitarian structure. Hierarchical companies restrict the freedom of the employees and therefore curb the flow of new and innovative ideas into the organization. Flexible boundaries allow employees more freedom to collaborate with coworkers and introduce their own ideas while still remaining under the direction of a supervisor. In India, most of the start-ups follow egalitarian structure. The recent success of many firms can be attributed to this structure. Even IT giant like Infosys was started as an egalitarian company3. All the eight......

Book Critque: Two Views on Women in Ministry

...Beck has a number of contributors that openly share their views on egalitarianism and complementarism. Linda Belleville and Craig Keener are the contributors that align themselves with the egalitarian view. The two opposing contributors as Thomas Schreiner and Craig Bloomberg, who both give their views on complementarian. The two views that are explained in the text are egalitarian and complementarian. As the contributors move through their views and share their thoughts, in the following pages are the responses of the remaining three contributors. These views can be seen as both respectful and also straightforward, not allowing the writer to get off lightly with their opinion on the opposing views. The egalitarian view deals with equal opportunity. This view as covered in the text provides the readers with insight of how people react to women have equal rights in the church as they do in society. The two main contributors to this school of thought are Linda Belleville and Craig Keener. The complementarian view deals with the traditional, or hierarchal views of women in ministry. The main two contributors of this ideology are Craig Blomberg and Thomas Schreiner. These two do not tread lightly on their view of traditionalism and directly points out the errors that some egalitarians use in their arguments. The main idea of each view centers on God, man, and woman. These two positions visit the creation process and the events of the fall of man and how they......

Startification Social Issues

...rich, poor and middle – instead of being egalitarian with resources shared equally by everyone? With the information surfacing around income inequality, a new study indicates that unequal access to resources brings about stratification, (Rich v. Poor, Haves v. Have not’s), and causes migration, displacing egalitarian societies. Researchers at Stanford used computer simulation to compare migration for egalitarian and stratified societies. (1) The researchers determined that when resources were consistently scarce, egalitarian societies – shared resources – remained more stable than stratified societies. Unequal sharing in the stratified societies gave those societies more incentive to migrate. Therefore, during periods of shortage, stratified societies were able to migrate, and egalitarian societies were not able to adapt to changing conditions as quickly. Stratified societies push egalitarian societies away from resources. Today stratified societies vastly out number egalitarian societies, and those numbers are increasing worldwide. Some additional economic data to prove that stratification exists in the US today. The total net worth of the bottom 60% of US household’s, (today 100 million), is less than that of Forbes 400 richest Americans. (2) This does not appear to occur because the ethic of equality is being replaced by a more selfish equality, but instead by stratified societies spreading out and taking over egalitarian societies. In addition this widening......

Outline and Evaluate the View That Families Are Now More Egalitarian.

...Outline and evaluate the view that families are now more egalitarian. In the past, families were seen as very traditional with the men back having the role of being the breadwinner and women dealing with the traditional domestic chores as well as other roles such as looking after the children. Whereas in today’s society, families are now more equal. Children today are much more dependent on their families. However some may argue that, even in the contemporary UK, families are still traditional and not equal. A study by Young and Willmott claimed that roles carried out by men and women were symmetrical, (and in the third stage) with a sharing of domestic tasks, childcare and decision making. They found that the roles were joint conjugal roles rather than single. This shows how families are now more egalitarian as tasks and chores were being shared out. However, this study can be criticised as Anne Oakely as she found that women spent 77 hours per week on housework. She also said that women take on a double burden as they have to deal with domestic chores as well as other roles such as looking after the children. As well as this, she claimed that men only have to do a few tasks in order to qualify as a ‘household husband’ and roles were segregated and not joint. This shows how families are not egalitarian. Families are now devoting their time and working around their schedule into family life. Rapoport and Rapoport found that working couples negotiated family and......

Compensation

...facilitate career progression, reduce turnover, and increase experience (Milkovich et al, pg. 51). 5. Explain the difference between egalitarian versus hierarchical pay structures. (10 marks) There are numerous differences between egalitarian and hierarchical pay structures. A hierarchical structure has more layers while an egalitarian pay structure is delayered. Egalitarian structures have few levels and small differentials vs. hierarchical structures that have many levels and large differentials. The criteria used for both pay structures could be the same: either person or job. The fit for a hierarchical pay structure is tailored and for egalitarian it is loosely coupled. A tailored structure is defined as a "pay structure for well-defined jobs with relatively small differences in pay" (pg. 47). A loosely coupled structure is a "pay structure for jobs that are flexible, adaptable, and changing" (pg. 47). A hierarchical structure seeks to promote individual performance and an egalitarian structure supports a team environment. When looking at the criterion for fairness, a hierarchical structure encourages a performance based process and the egalitarian structure focuses on equal treatment. Hierarchical structures maintain their belief in the motivational effects of frequent promotion while the behaviour rewarded in an egalitarian structure is cooperation within individuals and teams. 6. Describe the major decisions involved in job analysis. (6 marks) The......

Sk Telecom Goes Egalitarian in a Hierarchical Society.

...Case Study 2.1 SK Telecom goes egalitarian in a hierarchical society. Facts of the Case Korea is one of the most homogeneous countries in the world, racially and linguistically.

Biblical Studies and the Gender Question in the Church

...have come to the surface. This is in part due to the apparent conflicting evidence that we see in biblical texts. It seems that everyone has an opinion on what it actually says. While some churches whose traditions and practices are less rigidly tied to Biblical doctrines have begun placing women in leadership positions such as pastor or teachers, others that interpret the Bible more literally have been slow to adopt changes. The opposing egalitarian and complementarian views on gender illustrated by the following interpretations can be attributed to differing approaches to exegetical techniques, hermeneutical principles, outside authorities, and contrasting ideas on authenticity both literal and situation-specific in scripture. These ideas will be explored a bit later. To begin our discussion we need a general explanation of what is meant by an egalitarian or complementarian view. Egalitarianism is a moral code that holds that everyone should be treated equally. People are equal in fundamental worth and moral status within an egalitarian view. Christian egalitarianism holds that all are equal before God and Christ. We all have a responsibility and right to use our individual gifts for the glory of God. God calls all regardless of distinction. Complementarianism holds that “God has created men and women equal in their essential dignity and human personhood, but different and complementary in function with male headship in the home and in the church.” Women are not to......

Sex and Gender Feminism

...politics and personal and domestic relationships. However there are also disputes within feminism around the concepts of sex and gender and in this respect we must distinguish between egalitarian and difference feminism. Egalitarian feminists may be described as adopting an anti-essentialist, androgynous view of human nature in the sense that they believe that although men and women have important biological differences in relation to reproduction they are otherwise physically and mentally very similar in all other respects. Therefore gender differences in attitudes, behavior and social roles are not biologically determined but primarily socially constructed through gender differences in socialization [ and also through processes of social control which restrict female freedoms.] To support their arguments that gender role differences are mainly socially constructed egalitarian feminists have referred to cross cultural studies [such as Margaret Mead’s findings of cross cultural variations in gender roles between various Pacific Island tribes] and to changes in male-female behavior overtime in given societies such as the different employment patterns which occurred in the UK and elsewhere during war time and more recently as female educational and employment opportunities have improved. Thus egalitarian feminists have claimed that in societies such as the UK the socialization process as it operated at least up to the 1970s meant that many parents socialized their daughters......

Egalatarians

...Government and Politics Homework The post war history of English education is simply the story of a lengthy struggle between egalitarians and meritocratic. Discuss The English education has always been a topic of debate between the two political sides of spectrum and no more so than the struggle between egalitarians and meritocratic. Egalitarians believe that the education system should be rewarding for all and the meritocratic approach has been one where the education system should be a fight for the best e.g. you achieve the best based on merit and hard work, both have underlying flaws when either approach has been taking to policy. One of the first changes to the English education system came in the 1944 Education act also known as the Butler act brought to power by R.A. Butler conservative politician. This education act changed the English system in the following way; changes to secondary schools meant that there were a tripartite system in place which consisted of 3 types of schools and these schools were Grammar schools only the very few 15% made it into them these schools consisted of a very hard work ethic towards education whereas the secondary modern was a very basic approach compared to the grammar school as they only focussed on woodwork basic arithmetic and basic understanding of other subjects, the third school was the technical schools and these were created slightly later but focused solely on employment for the students so they would learn skills to get......

Outline and Assess the View of the New Egalitarian Arguments About Social Mobility

...‘Outline and assess the view of the New Egalitarian arguments about social mobility’ (40 marks) Social mobility refers to the movement of individuals, families, households, or other categories of people within or between social strata in a society. It is a change in social status relative to others' social location within a given society. The New Egalitarians are a group of sociologists and politicians who believe that social-class divisions are in decline and that policies to socially include deprived groups are working. Their critics consist mainly of the Traditionalists, Marxists and Neo Marxists. In this essay I aim to show how persuasive the New Egalitarian argument is. New Egalitarian sociologists such as Giddens and Diamond (2005) argue that social class is no longer an important source of inequality or identity in the contemporary UK. They suggest that the UK is a meritocratic society in that equality of opportunity is now the norm, i.e. all members of society are objectively and equally judged on their talent and ability. However, the Traditionalist view opposes this; they argue class divisions and conflict are still the key characteristics of British society today. They believe that Labour politicians have abandoned their commitment to equality and social justice for those exploited by the organisation of capitalism. They believe Labour politicians have betrayed its working-class roots because it has done nothing to redistribute wealth and income from rich to......

On Islam and Inequality

...inequality as an unexpected one because in the income inequality literature, religion in general and Islam in specific are not commonly considered as potential determinants. Fish`s proposed causal mechanism makes his study even more suspicious because his references are anecdotal and his reasoning is culturalist. This is why, I decided to investigate his findings deeper and conduct a test on his claims that Muslims are culturally more egalitarian than Christians. The plan of this paper works in the following way: I will start with a literature review and continue with a brief summary of Fish`s data analysis and his major claims about the causal mechanism behind the relationship between Muslim culture and egalitarian state policies. Afterwards, I will continue with my alternative replication of Fish`s regression analysis with a different dataset which measures inequality in an alternative way. Then, I will introduce my test in relation to one part of his causal mechanism and attempt to answer the question whether Muslims are really more egalitarian or not. Finally, I will discuss my alternative causal mechanism idea which is religiosity should be added to the analysis as an interactive variable with the religion because religion variable alone without religiosity is not an ideal indicator of culture. What matters is not being Muslim, Protestant or Jewish only but a religious Muslim, Protestant or Jewish, because only after than religion should be expected to play a......

Soc 331 Week 3 Dq 1 Distributive Justice Across the Generations

...textbook, the author discusses how demographic differences, such as age, influence understandings of distributive justice. He also reviews how libertarian, utilitarian, and egalitarian theories of distributive justice enter into conversations across demographic divides. The soaring cost of health care, the limitations of the economy in paying for health care, and the growing proportion of the population who are over age 65, have given rise to serious discussion, at times acrimonious, about the possible need to or the justice of rationing health care to that age group. A common definition of rationing is withholding some specific medical treatments for reasons other than a patient’s desire to have the treatment (e.g., Medicare not paying for certain treatments for very elderly patients). In your discussion, you must, from the perspective of distributive justice, summarize the major arguments on both sides (the pros and cons) of the issue of whether health care should be rationed to the elderly. You must also characterize these arguments according to whether they are primarily libertarian, utilitarian, or egalitarian in nature. Finally, you will evaluate these arguments from your view of distributive justice, explaining both how your personal life experiences and your own libertarian, utilitarian, or egalitarian views influence your evaluation. To help you successfully complete this discussion, review the following required resources: a. Callahan, D., &Nuland, S. B.......
