MANAGING TALENT: General Motors’ Commitment to Diversity
Back in the 1980s, valuing diversity was far from the minds of the leadership at General Motors. True, GM had established a program to promote minority-owned dealerships, but there were problems within the company. Women and minorities complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that the carmaker was discriminating against them. In 1984, the EEOC and GM reached a $42.4 million settlement in which GM promised to promote women and minorities into management positions. Since then, the company has never swerved from that effort at inclusiveness. Today GM garners praise as a company that far exceeds legal standards for equal employment opportunity.
For GM, this commitment to diversity is a way to better serve its customers in the United States and around the world. A diverse workforce, supplier base, and dealer network show GM how to serve a diverse marketplace. And openness to diversity—what GM calls a welcoming Workplace of Choice—gives the company access to the best talent in the world, without regard to such differences as race, sex, and nationality. In the words of Alma Guajardo-Crossley, director of GM’s diversity initiatives, recruiting and hiring minorities is “business sense,” because in the United States, minority groups “are pretty much going to be the majority here pretty soon.” They have an impact because the company does not merely hire minorities, but also develops them, trains all employees to value diversity, and expects all its people to be fully engaged in helping GM “design, build, and sell the world’s best vehicles.”
Guajardo-Crossley is just one member of a team of managers dedicated to promoting diversity at General Motors. She reports to Eric Peterson, GM’s vice president of diversity. Others on the team include managers of diversity communications, diversity advertising,…...

...SCS 2812 Assignment # 1 Fang Guo and Angelo Gomez May 20th 2014 Introduction As WizCo continues to grow rapidly, our top corporate goal is to double our revenues year on year. To achieve this, we have identified strategies to implement. To determine and measure our success, we chose some very important metrics and its associated Key Performance Indicators (KPI) to help us assess and monitor our progress. Each KPI discussed below will supplement our scorecard as the benchmark measurement. Conversion Rate Each visitor can be counted as WizCo’s potential buyer. The success of our online presence is measured by our ability to convert high volume of visitors into buyers. The aim of this performance indicator is to increase our conversion rate by optimizing each and every step in our buying process. Given data shows that the highest conversion rate is from the direct channel, but it’s hard to expand the number of new visitors because the traffic volume is too low for us to improve it in a short time. The conversion rate of the paid search is the lowest, in order to increase our conversion rate by 20% in a year, we need to focus on increasing the organic search conversion rate by 20% from 1.7% to 2% and referral channel by another 20% from 5% to 6%. The increase of conversion rate will directly impact on our revenue in a positive way. An improvement on our website and sales funnel will help us to maintain continuity so that customers never feel lost in our website.......

Clustering of event dates in calendar time induces cross-sectional dependence in abnormal returns. The rank statistics take cross-sectional dependence into account via the aggregation of individual security abnormal returns into a time series of portfolio mean abnormal returns (ranks).Thus the rank statistic converges to unit normal as the number of securities in the portfolio increases.

...taxes to curb global warming • 51% of respondents worried about global warming • Among adults under 30 the number of adults it was 30% it was 54% for democrats • 68% of respondents under 30 supported taxing companies and fewer ¾ of democrats • 54 % as opposed to 34 % believed a sacrifice must be made to protect the environment • In 2007 52% supported protecting the environmentas opposed to 34% for the economy. The poll was conducted nationwide from 18-22 November among 1030 respondents Margin of error is plus or minus 4% Poll Analysis The poll was conducted nationwide by means of a telephone poll of 1030 individuals who were dialed at random. A set of 11 question was asked all respondents with some of the questions being rotated (wwwwww) The article does not indicate what statistical analysis technique was used in computing or deriving the outcome. However when you take a look at the poll results you will notice that the recent poll results is juxtaposed with past results of similar polls from previous years. Questions 5,6 and 7 do not have any comparative analysis from the past though the article is based on question five. It is interesting to note that question 6 which asks about how much respondents worry about global warming was not given statistical prominence. The article compares the poll to previous polls held in 2009 to buttress a claim of rising support for climate change. Critique The sample size appears too small to be representative of the views......
