The Culture within the organization is rather abrasive and will be a rude shock for people who have worked in European companies or companies with a more people focused approach to overall personnel management. The "sales numbers" are clearly more important than the people assets and this is evident in the management to staff interactions and has resulted in staff seeing throwing their peers under the proverbial bus as a way to make themselves look better as opposed to actually striving to improve themselves.

Programs directed at encouraging staff engagement in nine work related activities should be encouraged with a specific focus on promoting better family development outside the organization.
