Russian Culture and Human Resource Management
Thad Lopez
Saint Leo University

Human Resource Management (HRM) as described by Ivancevich & Konopaske (2013) is the function performed in organizations that effectively uses employees to achieve both organizational and individual goals. Throughout the years HRM has evolved domestically influenced by both business and social events leaving behind a renewed emphasis on human capital. Today’s environment requires business leaders to focus on the financial returns of the company as well as the contributions of strategic HRM to that end. Organizations are continuing to scan the business environment looking for opportunities creating value and differentiation. Increased evidence points to an engaged workforce as a competitive advantage for many companies and more than ever these organizations are looking to expand internationally. Successful global organizations have come to understand that western theories of HRM may not apply to other cultures and as a result have found ways to remain strategic with HRM outside of their domestic borders. Russian culture is primary example where HRM practices must be evaluated in the context of Russian culture and values. Global Human Resource Management (GHRM) refers to the policies and practices that relates to managing people internationally and according to Ivancevich & Konopaske (2013) the external environment of the international organization is one of the most important influences on HRM activities and culture. HR professionals no longer question the importance of cultural differences rather they turn their focus to understanding the differences and ensuring alignment between international culture and HRM often times referring to Hofstede’s five theories. Individualism vs. collectivism, power distance, avoidance uncertainty, masculinity and long term vs.…...

St. Augustine

...ST. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum Our intention for this trip was to leave on Friday after Thanksgiving. I wanted to take my 1-year-old grandson with us, as he loves to ride the train. Choosing the Ripley’s train tour because I think it is the most convenient to get off and back on when exploring the many stops they have to offer. In addition to the convenience of getting off and on at will, a narrated history lesson is also included free of charge. On Black-Friday, we started our journey although later than originally planned due to traffic congestion of crazed shoppers. Changing our plans according to our delays, we parked at Sugar Mill Train station to embark on our tour. Our narrator like always was very enthusiastic quickly catching all of our attention in the process. I originally anticipated departing to look around the Presbyterian Church. Unfortunately, due to our late start we were all-hungry and decided instead to get off at St. George Street. My grandson really loved the tram ride and was not at all interested in getting off. Luckily, a distraction by a horse and carriage and the mention of ice cream he soon forgot all about the train. After a snack, a little shopping and a lengthy stroll we were ready to finish our train tour. Completing the train tour, we then chose the lighthouse for our next destination instead of the Fort. Upon arrival to the lighthouse, we were soon disappointed when they would not allow my grandson to be carried to the top...

St. Dominic

...Life of Saint Dominic St. Dominic (sometimes spelled St. Domonic) was born Dominic Guzman around 1170 in Old Castile, Spain. He was born into a family of privilege and educated in Spain where he attended university for ten years, studying the arts and theology. Education and learning were centerpieces of his life, as were kindness and charity. Saint Dominic Guzman is the patron saint of scientists and astronomy, among others. The life of St. Dominic is very interesting, as he traveled widely and met people from every level of society. His strong belief in education was cemented in the early 13th century whenhe accompanied the Bishop of Osma on a diplomatic mission that crossed into the south of France. There they encountered the Cathars, a group of educated people who were yet heretics. His attempts to preach to them failed, but he came away from the experience having seen a successful model: learning faith through schooling. He returned to the region later and established the first Catholic nunnery at Sainte Marie de Prouille, and the nuns later became known as the Sisters of Saint Dominic. He worked very hard in the following years to spread education about Christ. One well-recounted miracle associated with the story of St. Dominic occurred when he was in Fanjeaux, participating in a theological disputation or debate. His manuscripts and those of his adversaries were compared and various points highlighted. Someone suggested that the manuscripts of......

St. Jerome

...Most of the saints are remembered for some outstanding virtue or devotion which they practiced, but Jerome is frequently remembered for his bad temper! It is true that he had a very bad temper and could use a vitriolic pen, but his love for God and his Son Jesus Christ was extraordinarily intense; anyone who taught error was an enemy of God and truth, and St. Jerome went after him or her with his mighty and sometimes sarcastic pen. He was above all a Scripture scholar, translating most of the Old Testament from the Hebrew. He also wrote commentaries which are a great source of scriptural inspiration for us today. He was an avid student, a thorough scholar, a prodigious letter-writer and a consultant to monk, bishop and pope. St. Augustine (August 28) said of him, "What Jerome is ignorant of, no mortal has ever known." St. Jerome is particularly important for having made a translation of the Bible which came to be called the Vulgate. It is not the most critical edition of the Bible, but its acceptance by the Church was fortunate. As a modern scholar says, "No man before Jerome or among his contemporaries and very few men for many centuries afterwards were so well qualified to do the work." The Council of Trent called for a new and corrected edition of the Vulgate, and declared it the authentic text to be used in the Church. In order to be able to do such work, Jerome prepared himself well. He was a master of Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Chaldaic. He began his studies at his......

Pope Leo Xiii

...Pope Leo XIII Pope Leo XIII was the first pope to try and bring the Roman Catholic Church into harmony with the modern world. He continued the efforts of his predecessor Pius IX to gain independence for the Vatican from Italy. It could be argued that Christianity Survived through Pope Leo XIII because of his political and social work. Pope Leo XIII’s real name was Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci. He was born on March 2, 1810, in Carpineto, Italy. Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci was the sixth of the seven sons of Count Lodovico Pecci. When he was eight he and his brother, Giuseppe were sent to study at the Jesuit school in Viterbo. After Leaving the Jesuit school he took up the study of theology. In 1832 he obtained the doctorate of theology. He then went to the Academy of Noble Ecclesiastics, and started studying canon and civil law at the Sapienza University. He began his career as an official of the civil administration of the Papal States, and was appointed priest in 1837. He was promoted often; in 1840 he was made governor of Perugia. In 1843 he was made Nuncio to Belgium, and Bishop of Perugia in 1846. In 1853, he was made Cardinal. Cardinal Pecci was not in like by the papal court because as nuncio he earned the disapproval of the Metternich. He did, however, prove himself to be a good bishop by creating many practical reforms for his diocese that he would later promote as pope. During the hard years of King Victor Emmanuel’s occupation of the......

St. Dismas

...St. Dismas Medical Center, an urban, nonprofit, 450-bed rehabilitation hospital began to see a significant decline in admissions. St. Dismas's mission focuses on inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation of the severely injured and catastrophically ill. While the patient census varied from month to month, it appeared to the St. Dismas Board of Trustees that the inpatient population was slowly but steadily declining. The hospital's market researchers reported that fewer people were being severely injured due to the significance of seat belts and bicycle/motorcycle helmets. In order to get a handle on the future of the organization, the Board, and the CEO, Fred Splient M.D. called for a major strategic planning effort to take place. In January 1999, St. Dismas held a planning retreat to identify future opportunities for the hospital. The outcome of the retreat was that the Medical Center needed to focus its efforts around two major strategic plans. The first, a short-run initiative, was to be more cost-effective in the delivery of inpatient care. The second, a long-run strategy was to develop new programs and services that would capitalize on the existing, highly competent rehabilitation therapy staff, and St. Dismas's excellent reputation in the region. At the time of the retreat, Fred Splient’s parents were living with him and his family. Fred was an active member of the “sandwich generation.” His parents were aging and developing many problems common to the geriatric......

St. Augustine

...St. Augustine’s Criticism on Plato and Platonism St. Augustine is one of the towering figures of medieval philosophy. Augustine had a huge influence on the modern period with people including Descartes and Malebranche. One of the main focal points in his life comes in 387 AD, when his conversion to Christianity takes place. In Augustine’s conversion to Christianity, he evolved a different approach to thinking. When Augustine writes about the Manicheans, he tends to focus on their materialism, substantive dualism, and their identification of the human soul as a particle of the Light. These three key qualifications from Platonism provide Augustine with a philosophical framework for both the medieval and modern periods. In the Confessions, Augustine gives his most extensive discussion of the books of the Platonists. In the Confessions, he makes clear that his previous thinking was dominated by common- sense materialism. It was the books of the Platonists that first made it possible for him to conceive the possibility of a non-physical substance. It did provide him however with a non- Manichean solution to the problem of the origin of evil. In addition, the books of the Platonists provided him with a framework where he plotted the human condition. According to Augustine the framework for Platonists can account for the difficulties with which life brings about to us, in the same aspect it offers a theory that the highest ethical goal is happiness and personal well- being.

So, when I was 16 years old, I joined the club and after two years I was assigned the position of Secretary. My roles as a Secretary were varied: I was maintaining club records, I was taking minutes at the meetings, I was submitting documents to the sponsoring Lions Club on a regular basis. I also had to maintain the officers’ list, the committee appointments, the attendance records and the rosters of the services we provided.

St. Augestine

...Saint Augustine once said, “For we have our existence from God, and it is from him that we deserve punishment for doing wrong and reward for doing good.” This quote draws up two philosophical propositions, which was taken from Book two of Augustine, “On Free Choice of the Will”. St. Augustine was a Christian theologian and philosopher and was the bishop of Hippo Regius, which was in Numidia; providence in Africa ruled by the Romans. He is seen as arguably the most important Western Christianity Church Father due to his influential texts in the Patristic Era. One could agree with St. Augustine’s philosophical proposition and one could disagree with his philosophical proposition. One could agree with St. Augustine’s philosophy “For we have out existence from God, and it is from him that we deserve punishment for doing wrong and reward for doing good” by analyzing biblical texts and having strong Christian beliefs. This claim can be interpreted that in the end of one’s life God will judge them at the gates of Heaven. Those who have lived a life full of good deeds will be rewarded; while those who have lived a life full of sin and wrongdoing will be reprimanded. When St. Augustine refers to those who will be punished for living a bad life one could interpret it that he asserts that person will receive his punishment in hell. Hell is a place of torment and punishment in an afterlife for people who have committed serious sins for which God will not allow them through the golden......

Leo Xii

...Pope Leo XIII Pope Leo XIII was born Vincenzo Pecci in Italy in 1810. When he was studying at the Pontifical Ecclesiastical Academy, he gave a presentation to many bishops about papal judgments, which received much praise and caught the attention of some Vatican officials. This was one of his first steps towards eventually become the Pope. Within ten years of this presentation, Pecci was ordained a priest and named a papal assistant (Bengini). He continued to work his way up in the Church and eventually in 1878, he was elected to be the Pope. He chose the name Leo in honor of Pope Leo XII, whom he admired very much. During his time at the Vatican he became the oldest to ever serve as Pope, holding the title until he passed away at the age of 93 (D’Ambrosio). During his time as the Pope, he made no radical changes to cannon law however he helped to modernize some of the church’s thoughts and beliefs. He saw the issues that people of his time had to deal with and he helped to bring justice to the situations (Bengini). At the time of his papacy, the world was experiencing an industrial revolution. Technology was rapidly changing, which in turn changed the way that people lived. The economy of many nations began to change their focus from agriculture to industry. Factories began production everywhere and employed many men, women, and children. This new trend brought many benefits to society as well as many problems (Stearns). In these factories, people would usually work......

Leo Not Winning an Oscar

...character and physically changed himself for the role, whereas DiCaprio portrayed Jordan Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 36 months in prison for defrauding investors. DiCaprio spent time with Jordan Belfort outside of filming in order to study his personality so he could bring the film to life. Although McConaughey changed his appearance and swept the Oscar up without a problem, DiCaprio still had many people talking about how phenominal his film was and that he had the role of Belfort down pat. Leonardo is also very picky with the roles he chooses. In the 90s, Titanic was a huge hit and was one of the best moives in the 90s, DiCaprio said he would never perform in a movie that huge again. In Beer's article, he stated, "Leo said, 'Titanic is something that will never happen again. Nor will I ever try to repeat it.' DiCaprio has been choosy about films since Titanic." Leonardo won't win an Oscar unless he tries to top his acting in the movies he's already starred in. Anthony Breznican, author of the article "How I'm Voting," agrees when he writes, "I feel like the flashier fleats of directing are so much more frequently rewarded, but the heart of the job remains performances. Sometimes the subtle hand should be rewarded." DiCaprio's huge career isn't exactly over, but he does need to step up his game if he wants to take home an Oscar. Leonardo will most likely give a great performance as long as he puts his heart and soul into a film he is starring......
