Proposal & Conclusion

From the Paper:

"Having an organizational culture that is built on trust and professional development creates a work environment that optimizes the use of personnel. However, ethical baselines that do not have to be questioned by employee impact the effectiveness on any branch or plant that much more. With foundations Bob Lancaster originally received in the United States Navy, the FMC Aberdeen plant was an organization that had its roots engrained in integrity, work values, and ethical treatment of its employees."
