ABC Corporation has been rapidly pursuing the products’ development strategies by having its true value. Moreover, keeping the venture spirit alive, the company has defined new beginnings and innovations. However, ABC Corporation has announced some changes within their organizational culture, by keeping the employees’ and stakeholders’ wellbeing into consideration. The part of the strategic reorganization changes will implement from July 1, 2018. ABC Corporation has announced some changes within their organizational culture (Anderson 2016). Charles Simpson, the Chief Executive Officer of the company will add some new responsibilities that include planning, allocation, merchandizing, design functions and marketing.
Mr. Simpson has huge experience across all the aspects of retail and will optimize the operational excellence and leverage the power of the brand. According to Mr. Simpson, the company has some incredibly talented workers, passionate leaders and enthusiastic mangers, which will help in leveraging their talents and strengths further. The amazingly talented team will take the company to the next level, thus impacting their profitability in a positive manner. In addition to this, Charles has made some additional organizational changes in order to gain long term profitability and at the same time, create a more nimble, streamlined and efficient structure of team (Benn, Edwards and Williams 2014).
Implementing these difficult decisions of organizational changes can affect the organization in a negative manner as well. The negative effects can be closing down of the departments or even the company. The organizational changes are often not accepted by the employees, which can affect the business to a huge extent. The expansion of the organization can also lead to some extra costs or expenses (Bilgihan, Kandampully and Zhang 2016). However, ABC Corporation is determined to accept the challenges and take measurable solutions as well.

These forward-looking statements highly reflect the current expectations or say, beliefs of the company’s future events.
Organizational embarrassment or celebration
An Embarassing Situation For Abc Corporation; Senior Manager Got Terminated
Victoria, Melbourne 25th May, 2018- ABC Corporation, the world’s leading fashion and retail industry has finally woken up. Last night, they announced that they had sacked their senior manager, Christine Ford, due to his involvement in certain malpractices. He was involved into breaching of confidential information of the company. The company has strict rules against confidentiality breach and considers it to be the most important component of their success. A breach of confidentiality is considered to be a matter of discipline and depending on its severity, the CEO of ABC Corporation decided to terminate the senior manager (Carson, Carson and Birkenmeier 2016). Previously, he was given warnings both in written and verbal, various times.
None affected the senior manager, and thereby, resulted into his termination. Prior to the formal disciplinary action, the company has carried out full investigation of the matter (Chory, Vela and Avtgis 2016). The whole matter was conducted by interviewing other employees in order to gather the required evidences against Christine. Witness statements obtained other information as well, relative to this case. From the investigation, it was found that Christine was passing the company’s information to its competitors in order to get benefitted. The company faced a huge loss of over 42 billion dollars, which is almost 1.5% of their sales.
In addition to this, Christine’s audacity of denying the whole situation angered the CEO of the company even more. According to Mr. Ford, he was not at fault. All the allegations made against him are baseless. The outcome of the overall investigation proved to be an embarrassment within the organization. Sufficient evidences were presented against Christine and therefore, the management did not take much time to declare their decision of terminating him. It is highly appropriate to go down to the formal route, especially where the investigations had proven the fact that the confidentiality breach was intentional (Elliott and Kaufman 2016).
The company which has achieved huge customer appreciation previously was going through a phase where their sales decreased to a huge extent. The problem was within the organization only, which led to its embarrassment. The CEO of the company has now made some stricter organizational policies and procedures, in order to avoid such things in the upcoming future. However, depending on the case’s severity, the employers, who were involved with this, may face certain allegations of the gross misconduct. The management is determined to monitor the overall issue and suspend the ones who are also involved into this after further investigations (Escobar-Rodríguez and Bonsón-Fernández 2017). The company is now facing a huge financial loss and damage to its reputation.
Current strategies of ABC Corporation are mainly focused on involving itself into some CSR activities, in order to recover from the embarrassing situation. Already, there is a clearing of the database records payments of the company, along with their percentage of profits and losses each year. The strategies are being rebuilt in order to give a tough competition to their competitors. ABC Corporation is planning to modernize their systems further, for the protection of this confidential information. They are not going to compromise anymore and undermine their sales. The company is now ready to hit the market with their new marketing strategies.
