  • Internal Marketing: A Model for Implementation and Development

    Internal marketing (IM) is increasingly recognized as a tool to institutionalize organizational values, improve employee commitment and enhance customer satisfaction. Its implementation and development, however, have not been sufficiently supported by the literature. A theoretical model would contribute to its conceptual development and facilitate its application in the organization, enabling to achieve strategic objectives such as customer orientation, organizational commitment, and organization performance. This reflective paper proposes a theoretical model for implementing and developing IM in organizations, by summarizing and integrating the literature. It identifies the evolution and the different theoretical approaches, such as: (a) the employee as a customer of the organization; (b) IM as a process; and (c) the culture of external customer orientation. The proposed model considers IM as a path for performing the strategic management of human resources through the marketing perspective, enhancing the need of both areas to work collaboratively

  • The Entrepreneurial Spirit: beyond business creation

    Globalization and constant transformation has marked this XXI century. This continual change makes organizations prepare in advance to face the challenges posed by global markets and nonstop changing times. These complex challenges organizations face today are assimilated by employees through active reponses that demand the perception of the market signals they function in. Through adaptation and change, these employees boost and manage initiatives within the companies, thus becoming leaders who provide mutual benefits for the organization and themselves. Consequently, they become real and genuine entrepreneurs. But any form of entrepreneurship also implies change and, beyond doubt, innovation, an essential element in organizations today. However, it is difficult to identify those employees who as entrepreneurs within organizations stand out and have an impact by generating creative projects (Pérez, 2011). Companies need leaders who believe and are ready to face the difficulties brought by these challenges. This article attempts to prove how corporate entrepreneurship, within an organizational context, is the true innovation booster

  • The trash becomes profit for Brazilian grocery retail

    Environmental sensitivity is present in several countries, and in Germany and the Netherlands, this perception on the part of agents (companies and individuals) is quite high. In this context, retailers have begun to take on new tasks, such as the commitment to reduce the waste they generate and to recycle and reuse what is generated with the purpose of increasing their responsibility to the final consumer. Therefore, the aim of this work was to analyze the reverse logistics implemented in 22 grocery stores located in São Paulo (Brazil) and to quantify the profit obtained with this implementation. For this, during 24 months, the quantities of cardboard and plastic discarded by these grocery stores were monitored. As a result, it was possible to observe that the supermarket corporation increased its net profit with the practice of reverse logistics in a value proportional to the net profit generated by two supermarkets with a revenue of 600 thousand dollars

  • Identification of risks in contratc of building construction

    This research studies the administrative risks in the contracts of the different construction activities.

The results of the study reveal that there is high informality in the contractors and that qualification days related to administrative and accounting aspects must be carried out, among others. Also, it is found that sometimes the formats that support the different processes within companies can be confusing for contractors
