...Owens & Minor along with other distributors provide inventory storage and management services for hospitals and other healthcare providers. Manufacturers typically don’t want the responsibility of holding inventory and prefer to ship product as soon as its finished. The role of distributor has changed over time and they are now doing more for the customers.

Correction Programme

...Community corrections initiative is rooted in local and community-based programme which is implemented by the non-governmental organizations. In a couple of years there has been an increase in the bureaucratic control, increased offender populations and a growth in the budgetary constraints which have called for a comprehensive approach in the community corrections management. The Wisconsin department of Corrections administers the Wisconsin parole and probation programme, which falls in the Division of Community Corrections (DCC). In the fiscal year 2007-08, there was an average of 71407 offenders who were under supervision as reported by the DOC. This was an increase of about 6000 offenders in relation to the population of offenders in the correction programme. Wisconsin as the other states has embarked on a program aimed at reducing the prison population by initiating an early release if the inmates a strategy aimed at addressing the shortfall in the budget of the state. While details of the early release are on the final stage, it has been indicated that there is an expectation of releasing up to 3000 inmates from prison. There are approximately 21212 inmates who are currently being housed by Wisconsin. Additionally, 71407 of the offenders are on either on parole or probation.

Starbucks Induction Training Programme

...Explain the likely benefits to Starbucks of its induction (orientation) training programme One benefit to Starbucks of its induction training programme is that all of their employees have all of the skills and knowledge they need. By sharing with their employees why they have such a strong passion for coffee their employees gain a passion for coffee which then helps them gain much more passion for their job. When customers come in to a Starbucks and they can see the passion that their staff have for coffee it makes them feel more comfortable in that environment and because they have had such a positive customer experience it makes them want to come back and also recommend Starbucks to their friends and family increasing the number of potential new and repeat customers. Another benefit to Starbucks of its induction training programme is that its employees feel like they are part of the team and not at a great disadvantage with their lack of experience. This benefits Starbucks as their employees settle into their roles extremely quickly and come out of their shells much faster than what they may do otherwise allowing them to get the most out of their employees from very early on as all employees who feel like they are part of the team and accepted by everyone in the team settle in to their new role in their new job much faster than employees who don’t feel like they are part of the team and that not many people in the team like them.

Radio Programme

...Title of Radio Programme: ‘Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy’ Format: Adult Contemporary (Oldies) Time of Show: Drive (4.00 pm- 7.00pm) Concepts: I. SPACE Radio’s Sit Back, Relax and Enjoy show aims to help people to get their mind off work/school and bring back 'the good old days' feeling with the help of hit adult contemporary songs from the 60s to 90s. The overall idea of the show is, by tuning in, listeners can put their stress and problems aside and relive their font memories from back then so that they can end of the day with a good note. It is a very chill and relaxed radio show, where listeners are able to let loose and interact with the DJs during the different show segments where it is further elaborated on. II. According to Robert Fontenot (Fontenot, 2016), Adult Contemporary (Oldies) is pure pop oldies from 1961 to the birth of soft rock in the early 70s. AC as it is understood today features the lighter side of the radio, but the classic sound of AC remains lush 60s pop, often vocal-based and rooted in traditional European styles. The genre generally targets people of 30 years and above, where they can enjoy their favourite hits back in the day in this generation. However, it also targets the younger generation because it makes them appreciate the good old classic songs that their parents love. III.
