Stand Firm

The pace of modern life is accelerating. To keep up, we must keep on moving and adapting - constantly striving for greater happiness and success. Or so we are told. But the demands of life in the fast lane come at a price: stress, fatigue and depression are at an all-time high, while our social interactions have become increasingly self-serving and opportunistic. How can we resist today´s obsession with introspection and self-improvement? In this witty and bestselling book, Danish philosopher and psychologist Svend Brinkmann argues that we must not be afraid to reject the self-help mantra and ´stand firm´. The secret to a happier life lies not in finding your inner self but in coming to terms with yourself in order to coexist peacefully with others. By encouraging us to stand firm and get a foothold in life, this vibrant anti-self-help guide offers a compelling alternative to life coaching, positive thinking and the need always to say ´yes!´

At the Nürnberg School of Commerce, the predecessor of the School of Business and Economics at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, dealing with international business activities already played a strong role. Eventually, the school would become one of the first in the German-speaking countries where a Chair for International Management was founded. With 30% of all students coming from abroad, the school presents a strong degree of internationalization. Furthermore, research in the field of international management enjoys an outstanding reputation. With the Nürnberg Edition on International Management, we would like to build on this longstanding tradition and present the latest research findings to academics, students and practitioners.

Mit der Firmung steht der Jugendliche vor großen Entscheidungen, die sein Leben nachhaltig prägen werden. Die Zeit der behüteten und umsorgten Jahre geht zu Ende. Eigenständigkeit ist angesagt. Es gilt, den richtigen Bildungsweg einzuschlagen, seinen Platz in der Gesellschaft zu finden. Auch der Glaube wird radikal hinterfragt. Die alten Märchen sind passé. Harte Realität ist angesagt. Worauf kommt es im Leben an? Was ist das für ein Gott, der das schreckliche Leid auf der Welt nicht verhindert? Wie schaffen es andere Leute, ein Ziel zu finden, für das es sich zu leben lohnt? Was hat der Heilige Geist mit ´´Begeisterung´´ zu tun? All diese Fragen werden in diesem Album in eine Geschichte hineinverwoben, wie sie sich in jeder Jugendgruppe abspielen könnte - kurz vor der Firmung, versteht sich. Staccato-artige Bildsequenzen durchdringen dabei die großen Menschheitsthemen und werden im wahrsten Sinne ´´transparent´´ auf die jeweilige ganz persönliche Berufung.

Cross-Border Outsourcing and Boundaries of Japa...
103,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is the first book that provides comprehensive economic analysis of cross-border outsourcing by Japanese manufacturing firms based on microdata. Previous literature on many other countries has often been constrained by limited data availability about outsourcing, but research contained in this book exploits unique firm-level data and directly tests theoretical hypotheses derived from new firm heterogeneity trade models. Productivity, capital-labor ratio and R&D intensity are examined at the firm level. While rich empirical results in this book convince us how powerful the orthodox economic theory is in understanding Japanese firms, detailed firm-level findings, combined with accessible and concise overviews of Japanese international trade, are widely informative for international economists, experts of Japanese society, business strategists for offshoring, and policy makers in both developed and developing economies. This book further discusses how boundaries of Japanese firms, traditionally sheltered by language and cultural barriers, are affected by outsourcing decisions simultaneously crossing national borders and firm boundaries. The interpretations of Japanese characteristics in outsourcing have deep implications for understanding drastically changing Japanese business amid globalization.

Academic Paper from the year 2018 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 95.4%, Kenyatta University, course: Business Management, language: English, abstract: Notably, once it comes to employees? payment, Human Resource managers face an intriguing challenge; the challenge of offering competitive salaries so as to attract qualified talent alongside retaining it, without harming the bottom line. Luckily, the competitive pay practice (a common-sense way of setting salaries), has been observed to be an easy process that is quite imperative in any business. The development of any competitive pay policy requires reviewing of the firm?s inside job descriptions along with their respective salaries; then comparing them to analogous positions of different organizations. In this sense, the employer may determine what he/she would be paying his/her workers by obtaining salary data from other organizations or even from public sources. Therefore, as the ABC Retail HR manager, which is an independent retail firm, I will develop a competitive pay policy for ABC Retail Company that will sustain the company?s strategic goal of increasing its market share to 20% by 2019 in the St. Louis area. It is significant to note that according to a 2015 survey, the market share of this company in St. Louis area was 17.8%, facing a stiff competition from Target and Kohls. ABC Retail has ten stores, with each store comprising of one store manager, 3 assistant store managers, 15 department managers, 20 shift leaders, 150 associates, not to mention that each store contains a total of 149 employees when fully staffed.

200,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Seit der letzten Auflage dieses Buches ist eine Reihe von wichtigen Er­lassen in Kraft getreten: das neue Rechnungslegungsrecht, das geän­derte Firmenrecht, die Verordnung gegen übermässige Vergütungen bei börsenkotierten Aktiengesellschaften, die Umsetzung der 2012 re­vidierten GAFI-Empfehlungen zur Bekämpfung der Geldwäscherei und der Terrorismusfinanzierung sowie das neue Finanzmarktinfrastruktur­gesetz. Dies und die Entwicklungen in Lehre und Praxis machten eine vollständige Neubearbeitung dieses längst zum Standardwerk gewor­denen Lehr- und Handbuchs erforderlich. Mit der Neuauflage liegt eine umfassende Darstellung des Schweizer Gesellschaftsrechts und seiner Nebengebiete auf dem neuesten Stand vor. Darüber hinaus wird das künftige Handelsregisterrecht vorgestellt, und ausführlich wird auch auf die pendente Aktienrechtsreform einge­gangen. Trotz dieser umfassenden Änderungen und Ergänzungen blieb die Zielsetzung unverändert: Das Buch soll Grundlage für das Stu­dium, zugleich aber auch erste Auskunftsstelle für den Praktiker sein. Um diese doppelte Nutzung zu erleichtern, werden die Grundlagen ei­nerseits und die weiterführenden Hinweise zu Einzelfragen sowie zu Literatur und Judikatur andererseits drucktechnisch unterschieden.
