Description:

This paper begins by describing a situation where the manufacturing manager, Victor, at Motorola's Anzen facility in Nambu, beat up Tom, another Nambunese, who consistently refused to follow safety rules at Motorola's facility in Nambu. The paper then explains that Motorola and its Nambunese counterpart both aim at developing and practicing the desirable traits of productivity, safety, harmony and civility among its ranks to accomplishing its goals. The paper also explains that most Nambunese working for Motorola already observe and exhibit devotion to these policies and share the values of productive work. The paper further describes how the company handled the problem between Victor and Tom as well as its decision to leave things as they were - without firing either employee. The paper concludes that the most important aspect of the decision to leave things as they were is the sense of justice Victor exhibits when he initiates a public apology and financial indemnity to Tom despite Tom's open violation of company rules and of Nambunese values of duty and obedience.
