From the Paper:

"The following lines present some of the internal and external challenges that could be met throughout the implementation process, each followed by the solutions proposed in resolving the difficulty.
"Language barriers - in order to ensure that the new employees are able to interact with their American colleagues, the HR Department will only select those resumes which clearly state that the candidate speaks English at an intermediate level at least; also, the company will offer language training
"Corporate image - just like any other large entity, the FedEx Corporation has attracted some criticism and is often blamed for not carrying enough for its employees, but rather trying to exploit them, the latest evidence in this sense being the cut in wages and retirement contributions (FedEx Watch, 2006) or the efforts the company makes to ensure that its employees do not unionize (Sechler, 2009). In order to overcome this challenge, the media campaign will focus on the benefits of being a FedEx employee, and will include in this the testimonies of its satisfied staff members."
