Case Summary
Kenya's banking industry is growing and expanding every day with the entry of new firms. Currently, the industry has more than 43 license commercial and a good number of SACCO that re offering banking services. This number of banks indicates clearly the intense competition that is in Kenya's banking industry. This competition calls for firms within the industry to ensure they position themselves competitively.
To meet customer expectations, the banks need to have permanent and stable employees who have a deep understanding of what the customers they serve needs. However, there is the high rate of employee turnover in some banks that may see some of these banks struggle to keep up with the competition. This case study, therefore, seeks to address this problem by examining what a top bank in Kenya is doing to ensure a longer stay of employees so that other banks can benchmark from them. 
 
Relevance of the case
 
The case is relevant in that at it can help banks that are struggling with a problem of high rate of employees' turnover solve this problem. Moreover, the case can be used by human resource managers in enhancing motivational factors within their organization.  
Profile of Standard Chartered Bank of Kenya
Below are some of the facts about the bank:
  • The bank is foreign owned with only 26% local shareholding
  • The bank has been in existence in Kenya for more than 100 years having been established in 1911
  • It has 33 branches countrywide, has 1693 employees, and it is the fourth largest bank in terms of market share as indicated by Business Daily Africa
The bank has also received the following recognitions:
  1. - It was the first bank to receive ISO 9008 certification in Kenya
  2. - Best Bank, Customer Satisfaction, Think Business Awards- 2015
  3. - ICPSK Champions of Governance Award -2014

  5. - Best Consumer Internet Bank in Kenya-Global Finance Magazine -2013
  6. - Best Foreign Exchange Bank in Kenya-2013
Overall Winner Corporate Governance Excellence in Financial Reporting Awards 2013
Indeed, such kind of achievement cannot be attained without well motivated, committed, and dedicated workforce. Also, this kind of outstanding performance cannot be realized if employees get employed and leave within the shortest time possible.
Organization Behavior Questions and Practices Addressed by the Case
  • Factors that motivate workers at the bank
  • The type of leadership available in the bank, supervisor's behavior towards employees and the effect the latter has on employee motivation
  • How effective is communication in the bank and if communication has any impact on employee motivation
Methods of Data Collection
Data was gathered from both primary and secondary sources. Primary data was obtained through the administration of questionnaires and direct interviews with some employees and interns of the firm. The sample chosen centered on junior and senior employees of the company. For secondary source, website was the only source that was used. 
Findings/Issues being discussed
Factors that motivate employees at the bank
Data collected indicated that various factors motivate employees in the bank. The factors are stated in the order of their importance, from the factors viewed as most important to the least ones.
  • Salary and other fringe benefits
  • Job security
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Respect and fair treatment received from superiors
  • Possibility of future  promotional opportunities
  • Relationship with co-workers and guidance from supervisors
  • Type of leadership present in the bank and supervisor's behavior
It emerged that in the bank, employees are given a chance to take part in decision-making on matters affecting them as well the fact that management takes time to listen to employees ideas. Employees are also given a chance to take part in assignments beyond the core of their which motivate them as this give them a chance to gain new skills. Employees also cited the presence of working environment full of trust and openness. However, employees noted that some supervisors use the authoritarian type of supervision. This kind of supervision according to employees, was the main demotivating factor. 
How management and supervisors communicate with employees
 Employees indicated that there existed efficient and effective communication from the management. This efficiency in communication enabled the employees understand the nature of their assignment. Well understood assignment made employees tackle their assignment in the right way, resulting in a positive feedback that is obviously a motivator. 
 
Lessons Learnt
Monetary benefits motivate most employees. This fact is clear since employees cited salary and other fringe benefits as their main motivating factor. This fact is in agreement with the theory of Scientific Management that noted that employees are economical beings who are motivated by money. Due to this tendency by employees to value money most, employers should consider using money related benefits as a motivating and retention factor of employees.  Besides, factors like job security, training and development opportunities, respect and fair treatment, and possibility of promotional opportunities indicate that Abraham Maslow's Theory of Hierarchy Needs applies in Kenya's labor market. Therefore, employers should not only cater for employees' monetary needs, but also self-esteem and self-actualization needs by providing opportunities for career growth within their organization.  
 
Management of these days should employ democratic leadership style since this type of style seems to attract the current generation of employees. Employees of this era do not stomach autocratic type of supervision, and if that is the case, they are ready to leave. Therefore, supervisors should create room for sharing responsibility with junior employees and refrain from being too much authoritative. 
Every organization should ensure there is efficient and effective communication in the organization. Effective communication is needed as it will ensure employees know what is expected of them and how best to execute the assigned task, something that motivate them
Comments
 
From the above findings, it is clear that employees motivation and better performance of banks is positively correlated. Therefore, banks and other financial institutions experiencing a high rate of labor turnover should strive to motivate their employees. The motivation of employees will require such banks to introduce competitive pay schemes as well as creating a working environment that support career growth.

Marriage is a crucial institution whose importance cut across all races and religion. It is not only considered as an avenue of ensuring cohesiveness and growth of the society, but in religion circles, it is viewed as a divine institution that was ordained by God. In the recent past, however, there has emerged calls from various people advocating for recognition of same-sex marriages. The appeal for acceptance of gay marriages is being made in the oblivion of the threat it poses to the society. Same gender marriages lack legitimacy since such marriages lack any religious foundation. They are also out to weaken the meaning and respect of the institution of marriage as well as resulting in a generation of children with confused understanding of gender-based roles.  
 
Firstly, same-sex marriage is not recognized by any religion on the planet or any culture. All religions view same-sex marriage as obscene since it is against the will of God. Gay marriages are unnatural acts that even animals are not known to do them. Allowing gay marriages will amount to an overturn of the principles of law where a moral wrong turns to a civil right. In the contrast, advocates of same-sex marriages argue that most religions are lessening their previously firm stand against same-sex marriages. Presently, these unions are seen as a lifestyle. Also, denying the same-gender couple right to marry has no legal backing. Discrimination of same-sex couples denies them their freedom of worship which is explicitly provided for by the law.  
Secondly, recognition of gay marriages will weaken the meaning and respect of the institution of marriage. If same-sex couples are accorded same privileges like medical decision-making capacity and joint ownership of property, marriage will start to lose its meaning. Marriage aim is not only meant to cater for emotional needs of the partners. The purpose of marriage extends to providing a serene environment for the growth of children by ensuring children grow under the care of a father and a mother. With gay marriages, such purpose will be lost. Conversely, supporters of gay marriages propose that all benefits enjoyed by legitimate couples should extend to the same-sex couple. Marriage is meant to cater for the emotional welfare of the couples and is not driven by children. Moreover, it is a personal decision, and one's decision should not be challenged because they deviate from what majority believe.
 
Finally, condoning same-sex marriage will breed a generation of children who do not clearly understand gender roles in the society. Children are supposed to learn gender roles from the society. A male child learns from his father that a father is supposed to protect the family.  A girl child learns by what a mother does by observing what her mother does. With same-sex marriage, this is not possible and the children they bring up will be confusing these roles. In the contrast, same-sex marriage advocates suggest that marriage is a personal commitment that societal expectations should not put heavy expectations on it. They feel that what society wants should not dictate what a person decides to do or not.
 
Based on the religious view, the purpose of marriage, and desire to bring up children who understand gender-based roles, gay marriages should not be allowed. If the entire purpose of marriage is to be retained, it is apparent that same-sex marriages need not to be there. It is a type of marriage that aims at addressing personal desires with no regard for the effects it will have on the future generation.

American Individualism was founded on several elements: One element that has to do with American Individualism is composed of two separate perspectives: America as a “unique” culture in itself and Americans as people who are “Independent Individuals.” A second element could be the idea of Independent Individualism, which has to do with individuals and not society as a whole; A third element may include the Protestant Ethic, which was established by John 
Calvin, Martin Luther and practiced by the Pilgrims who arrived in the New World seeking religious freedom; Transcendentalism, a philosophical movement established in the 1830s and 1840s in New England; The concept of the American Dream is a fifth element; America 
founding a democracy, unlike most European nations, including that of England; A seventhelement may be the idea of capitalism and a free-market society; Another element that could be considered a special quality of American Individualism is the role robber barons in the United States; American Individualism is also defined and confirmed with studies by Geert Hofstede, who is a well-known Dutch professor; Individualistic vs. collectivist nations; Another element is the role of immigrants in America and how they identify themselves and how they are identified by Americans; Another element would be the comparison of the U.S. and England; A thirteenth element would be the logic behind the Declaration of Independence; States’ Rightswould be another one; Another element would be freedom of speech.
American Individualism can be defined in two different perspectives:
  1. America as a “unique” culture in itself
  2. Americans as people who are “Independent Individuals”
The first perspective looks at American Individualism with respect to the United States of America and the qualities that make it “unique.” In other words, American culture has several key elements that make it distinct. These elements include Protestantism, Transcendentalism, 
democracy, Robber Barons, capitalism and Independent Individualism among others. Many would agree that no other nation on Earth has the “unique” combination of attributes that make 
America its own distinct culture.
The second perspective looks at American Individualism with respect to the individual people living in America. America, as most would probably agree is made up of many different kinds of people. With America being as multi-cultural and progressive as it is, more and more people are wanting to be less like their traditional family genre and more like their own kind of person. This can be seen with evidence in America’s pop culture. Higher divorce rates indicate that less people are getting married and staying married and more people are staying single longer. According to Stuart Mitchell (2011), “The total number of divorces that occurred in 2010 came to 119,589 representing a 4.9% increase on 2009’s 113,949 divorces” (2010 Divorce Rates and Trends, para. 2). People of different ethnic backgrounds and religious affiliations have a greater tolerance for others who are not like them than they used to. There are many other factors that suggest an increase in Americans becoming Independent Individuals. The American 
Psychological Association (2012) defines both Independent1

            A legal document is official and is written by a lawyer. It states contractual relationships between two or more parties, giving some rights in the process.

            For lawyers, words are the most important tools just like a weapon is to a hunter. It is through the written word that they can inform, advocate, instruct and persuade their clients, peers, and the judges. Writing this kind of document needs stellar writing skills that take some time to acquire. Below are some tips that can help you produce a persuasive legal document:

            Know you audience. One step to writing a good legal document is to establish who your reader is. If you are writing something to present before a court of law, make it persuasive enough. Similarly, when writing a memorandum to your client, give a detailed analysis of issues and provide recommendations at the end.

            Knowing your audience also helps you to tailor your language to suit their understanding. If you are writing to a client with no background in law, do not include terms that can make your reader feel less educated. It also helps to know your reader so that you can determine the kind of legal document to prepare; be it a letter, a memorandum or a pleading to a court.

            Ensure your document has a heading. It can be a letterhead or any other title of your choice. If you are writing a letter, include a letterhead at the top of the document. The letterhead should contain your company logo, name, address, and contacts. A case caption is used when writing a pleading. It contains the information about the case, starting with the state, names of the parties and addresses. A document title is used when writing directives and agreements such as wills.

            Organize yourself. Make your thoughts flow, introducing each paragraph in a manner that guides the reader to the next. Use a heading or a subheading if possible, so long as it makes the reader get your points clearly. Each of your points should take up a paragraph. Use transitions to connect your thoughts.

            Write concisely. Unless you are writing to fellow lawyers, the message you are passing across should be simple enough for anyone else to understand. Explain your points in simple and clear sentences. Organize your document into short paragraphs. Most readers have no time for long and wordy sentences. Ordinary language endears you more to your audience.

            To make your document more powerful, use an active voice. It brings out the vividness and the dynamism in any piece of writing. Passive voice makes your writing weak and trifling.

            Read and edit your work. Read your first draft and also give it to a non-lawyer to get the desired results. Note the words they take some time to understand and the phrases they find hard to fathom. Edit and proofread it once more to ensure there are no grammatical and spelling errors. Be sure the document is of high quality before you release it to the audience.

            Furthermore, a legal document should be consistent. The names, if any, should stay the same to the end. Any change is likely to cast doubts on your document. Remember to include the exact dates and time. It is also advisable in legal writing to use numerals instead of words when referring to amounts.

            A legal document should, therefore, follow the above steps, summarized below:

  • Know your audience.
  • Have a heading.
  • Organize yourself.
  • Write concisely.
  • Use an active voice.
  • Read and edit your work.
  • Be consistent.

Project management is the application of skills tools knowledge and techniques to project activities to meet its objectives. Project management is achieved through planning, initiating, executing, controlling, and closing. Project management risks describe the process involved in identifying, analyzing and responding to risks facing a project. There are two types of risk management, qualitative, and quantitative risk management.
Qualitative risk management is the process of assessing the impact and likes hood of identifying risks. The qualitative method of assessing risks in a project focuses on the potential effects that interfere with the project objectives. The management helps in identifying of addressing specific risks and guiding risk response. The qualitative risk assessment considers all the risks available and arranges them in terms of their likelihood of happening and their impact on the project. In qualitative first one comes up with the plan of managing the risk followed by identifying the risk. This is followed by determining the project status and them the project plan. After the risks are assessed qualitatively, it helps to come up with a list of risks with a high probability of affecting the project either negatively or positively.
The potential risks then are further analyzed using the quantitative risk management. The objective of further analyzing the risk using quantitative process is to determine the cost and the schedule required to manage the risk.  The process analyzes numerically the probability of each risk occurring and its impact on the project objectives. In this process of management, quantitative follows the qualitative risk management process by first determining the risk. Both processes of risk management can be done together or conducted separately. To gather information for quantitative risk management, interviewing is used which helps in qualifying the probability and the consequences of the risk to the project. This is followed by the sensitive analysis that helps in determining which risk has the highest impact on the project. The risks may be managed through mitigation, accepting, or transferring the risk to another party.

Climatic changes may refer to a change in average weather conditions. Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as global warming (Wikipedia). This article discusses at length the effects of these climatic changes.
Extreme weather events. Extreme weather patterns such as El Nino can lead to adverse changes in the environment such as temperature fluctuations and flash floods.
Diseases. Diseases such as malaria can be increase as a result of climatic changes. Increased precipitation can increase mosquito population indirectly by expanding larval habitat. Malaria kills approximately 300,000 children annually, poses an imminent threat through temperature increase. (Speybroeck, 2011)
Water. Climate change has a negative impact on water resources and freshwater ecosystems. As the climate warms, it changes the nature of global rainfall, evaporation, and other factors that affect water supply and quality. Specific impacts include: warmer water temperatures affect water quality and accelerate water pollution; this reduces the amount of freshwater available for drinking and farming.
Displacement and migration. Climate change causes displacement of people through the increased number and severity of weather-related disasters which destroy homes causing people to seek shelter or livelihoods elsewhere. Effects of climate change such as desertification and rising sea levels gradually force communities to abandon traditional homelands for more accommodating environments. Deteriorating environments triggered by climate change can also lead to increased conflict over resources which in turn can displace people.
Climatic changes have far much adverse effects and it’s the duty of each and every individual to protect especially the environment for the purpose of eliminating these changes or at very least their reducing them.

Leadership style
There is the authoritative style where the leader mobilizes his or her team members towards a common goal or objective that is to be achieved but leaves to them to decide on the method to use to reach the destination. The style works best when the team leader is working with team members who have more knowledge and skills than him. This style is crucial because, in an organization, situations may change but as long as the team members have a clear vision of what they are expected to achieve they use all means to reach the goal.
The pacesetter style. Here the leader of the organization acts as a model to their other employees in the company. The method works best when the team is already motivated and skilled, and the head is needed for quick feedback. However, the style may limit innovation in an institution as it may overwhelm the team members.
The affirmative style emphasizes mainly on teamwork. In this type of leadership, harmony is ensured in the group through direct connection of the employees. The style helps in improving communication among employees and creating trust. In this form, the employees take the priority followed by their leaders. In the coaching style, the director prepares the employees for the future. The leader aims at helping his employees develop certain skills and acquire knowledge. It helps in connecting individual goals with organizational objectives. The styles, however, can backfire if it is perceived as micromanaging by the employees.
In the democratic style, the leader draws up individual skills and knowledge and initiates commitment towards the resulting goal. It works best when the direction of an organization is unclear. Here the team members own up and handle any decision or activity they carry out hence they are committed. The style is not effective or advisable when it comes to emergency situations. The commanding style also exists in organizations. It is most applicable in case of emergency. Here the coercive head demands immediate conformity. The style also helps in controlling a problem teammate when every other alternative has failed. However, this style of leadership should be avoided as it alienates the teammates from the leaders and hinders innovation.
Thompson believed in training his leaders to better their skills. He applied the coaching style. When he was promoted as the CEO of the corporation, Donald was involved in training the employees so as to better their skills and meets the organization objectives. He also applied the democratic style of leadership where the employees were to manage themselves and use their desired means as long as they met the goals of the organization. This made him become famous and was adored by many employees. Donald also acted as a pacesetter to his fellow leaders in the company. He led by example as he was hardworking and ready to learn. He also encouraged teamwork as the CEO of the organization that is the affirmative style of leadership. He urged members of various departments to work together and have the team goals apart from the corporation objectives. Thompson applied the commanding style of leadership at the end of his leadership in the organization. The company was faced with crisis as there was a decline in the market share, and their stock was falling. This forced him to take upa the style. However, this did not save him or the organization as he was later replaced.

If you got to know of the position through an advert or an agency, go through the advert and get as much details as possible. You can also call the company or the agency to find out more about the position. Find out the kind of candidates the company is looking for and list your relevant skills which match the position. If the job advert gave a list of desired skills for the position, try as much as possible to respond to the requirements. Show how you have used the skill or your experience before and how you hope to use it if you get the position.


 Find out more about the company and their style of doing things. Tailor your cover letter to suit their language. Speaking a company's language makes them believe you are best fit to join them. The name of the company should be in the job advert, if not, call the advertisers or the agency and ask for the name of the company. Once you have it, go through their website and get as much information them as possible.

Grant Proposal Writing TipsA grant proposal is a formal document submitted to a government or a non-governmental entity requesting monetary assistance. It highlights a proposed project and its budgetary requirements. A grant is not a loan. It does not need to be paid back.

Problem statement.

This is the most important part of a grant proposal. Convince the funder how important the proposed project is in solving the stated problem.

Be detailed in your explanation of the project and assume the funders know nothing about it. It will help them understand the project and boost your chances of getting the funds.


Goals and objectives.

This section describes how your organization plans to handle the stated problem. State what you hope to achieve with the project. Your goals should be realistic, consisting of general and broad outcomes expected of the project. Your objectives should be specific and related to how you want to achieve the set goals.

In this section, tell the grantor how different members of your team with their diverse expertise, make the project's goals feasible. Include timelines that make sense and clearly state why you are choosing the methods for the activities.


Evaluation.

Funders are strict with their money and require accountability for everything spent. Include data collection and storage plans for your project.
