Intended Nestle Company
Nestle company falls under firms that deal with foods and beverages. The vision of Nestle Company is to be at par in food and Beverage sector in the Caribbean region (Bowerman, & Wart 17). The firm aims at providing their clients with products and services that are of good quality. The company also aims at value addition to its products and services, in that it will be able to offer them at competitive market prices. The other intention of Nestle Company is that it intends to attain profitability, as well as the viability in the long term (Bowerman, & Wart 21).
/> The company also intends to be friendly, caring, and also efficient. Nestle company intends to adopt a primary focus that is based on providing the customers with products as well as services that are safe and of high quality in a convenient manner (Bowerman, & Wart 25). The company also aims at being conscious in regard to its role of corporate social responsibility that will enable it to be in line with the social, cultural, environmental, and economic target of the Caribbean's. When it comes to the investment by the shareholders, the firm intends to ensure that its shareholders get a return that is reasonable (Bowerman, & Wart 29).
Besides that, Nestle Company also intends to be seen as a perfect place to work by its employees. In this case, the firm aims at providing favorable working conditions along with benefits (Bowerman, & Wart 33). The organization also feels like creating an environment within the firm that will enable the staff to attain job satisfaction, individual reasonable aspiration, as well as self-development. Apart from that, the organization also wants to be seen as a role model in terms of an innovative and an enlightened corporation in the modern Caribbean (Bowerman, & Wart 39). In addition, the firm also intends to be viewed as one having a progressive and a dynamic leadership that is in charge of employees who are loyal, highly professional, committed, and also dedicated to working.
In comparing the intended organization and the actual organization, there are very many differences. For instance, Nestle Company is among the leading firms in the food industry but is not the best in the Caribbean region. Apart from that, there have been some several complaints on products and services offered by the firm (Bowerman, & Wart 42). Due to the prevailing competition, it cannot be stated with certainty that the company offers its products and services at competitive prices to its clients.
Nestle company has also experienced several issues in relation to its corporate social responsibility that may have tainted its image in one way or the other. When it comes to the investments made by its shareholder, the firm offers return on investments to its clients. However, though such rates are not reasonable. Besides that, when it comes to the working conditions and the benefits, some of the workers working under this company have the desire of getting greener pastures elsewhere (Bowerman, & Wart 49). Some of the employees who were initially working under Nestle Company decided to move to other firms because Nestle seemed to offer unfavorable terms of service.
Last but not least, even though the organization has effective leaders supported by the employees, some of the employees are not loyal to their leaders. Apart from that, some of the employees are less motivated in that they are not fully committed and dedicated to their work. The manager can apply the theories of motivation to his workers depending on the situation. The applicable theories can be theory X and theory Y. In this case of the Nestle Company, theory X is more suitable, since it will increase the productivity of the organization. The management can also apply contingency theory in that it is expected of them to come up with decisions on the issues at hand.
