For example, in order to speed up the growth in the Chinese market, L’Oreal signed agreements to acquire two famous Chinese cosmetic brands, Yue-Sai and Mininurse. Moreover, according to the contracts, both the founders of Mininurse and Yue-Sai were required to never enter the cosmetics market. Were these problems that affect L’Oreal’s management on the two Chinese brands and its future growth in China? They are to be identified and analyzed in detail. Conclusion and recommendations will be given at the end of the report on how to well manage the two Chinese brands and make sustainable growth in the future. For example, keep the original cosmetics product packaging of Yue-Sai instead of re-packaging it due to the risk of losing brand loyalty.

Synthélabo's research-and-development budget was increased considerably, allowing the company in 1982 to become the first private laboratory to participate in the World Health Organization's project for research and education in neuroscience. During the 1980s Synthélabo enhanced its international status, setting up joint marketing affiliates in the United States and Britain with the U.S. company G. D. Searle, and establishing joint ventures in Japan with Fujisawa and Mitsubishi Kasei. The company also took controlling stakes in Kramer of Switzerland, in 1982, and LIRCA of Italy in 1983. Nevertheless Synthélabo continued to report poor sales figures, owing to difficulty in updating its product line and unfavorable market conditions in France. L'Oréal subsequently reiterated its commitment to Synthelabo, keeping restructuring to a minimum and increasing its holding from 63 percent to 65 percent after October 1987's Black Monday when the shares fell considerably. L'Oréal saw that the solution to Synthélabo's problems lay in extending its overseas sales, thereby offsetting unfavorable domestic pricing and reimbursement policies. By the end of the decade, profitability had improved and some promising new drugs were ready to be approved for marketing in the 1990s. Meanwhile, L'Oréal's research-and-development facilities continued their steady growth, with research......

...a employee whom was middle eastern and not attractive to him or did not fit the body type that he would like to see working and representing L’Oreal and request that Mrs. Yanowitz get rid of her and hire someone more attractive or hot. When he returned a few weeks later he discovered that she was not fired as he had order to be done. He demanded to know why and Elysa stated that she could not fire her without probable cause, and she was one of the top selling employees there. Wiswall got upset and began to retaliate against Elysa by soliciting complaints and in the complaint they stated she maintained a dictorial style of leadership and was disliked by her subordinates (O’Rourke, J. pg. 355). He also went as far as to audit her expense reports and prepare memos about her performance. She was then told she was a liability and was making too many mistakes. Due to this it caused a lot of stress on Elysa and it began to affect her performance at work and her sales numbers slipped. After taking a medical leave she was replace. The issues with this case to me is the fact that the GM was trying to get rid of an employee whom seem to be top sale person for the company because she was not attractive in his eyes which is clearly discrimination. Next he began to retaliate against the floor manager for not firing her. In the end she ending up being so stressed out from the retaliation efforts performed against her performance began to diminish and she ended up being replaced after......

...read someone's face because you can't do that on Facebook. They think nothing of ripping someone in an email or blogging with little or no idea of the consequences. People say things over the internet that would get them punched out in person. What Would You Do? James Kitling thought about his conversation with Ira Romero earlier that day. He was not really surprised that the human resources (HR) department was concerned about the time employees were spending on personal issues during the workday. Several departments were known for their rather loose management approach. Internet access for personal tracks, like shopping, using Instant Messaging services, and answering nonwork e-mails, had been a concern several months. Recent news reports had indicated that more than 50 percent of large companies now filter or monitor e-mail. Companies are also monitoring Web browsing, file downloads, chat room use and group postings. A survey published in the media reported that workers spend an average of eight hours a week looking at non work Internet sites. As the director of information technology, James was very dedicated to the effective use of technology to enhance business productivity. Although he was knowledgeable about technology, James was equally attuned to the ways in which technology can be abused in a work setting. He knew that some employees were probably using too much Internet time on personal tasks. On the other hand, his company mainly employed professionals,......
