From the Paper:

"Hershey is a top down management style enterprise. While it likes to emphasize that its employees are empowered and that its corporate culture is one of inclusion, most public companies in the current business climate cannot afford to be a bottom up managed company. The corporate structure at Hershey is typical in that it is overseen by an independent Board of Directors (BoD) who, "together with the Compensation and Executive Organization Committee, monitor the performance of the CEO"("Company"). This degree of oversight extends into the company's operations as well. The BoD review the corporate strategic plan annually in order to ensure that the company's corporate strategy is appropriate for the market and emerging market developments ("Company"). Additionally, public companies are further restricted in their managerial latitude by reporting and oversight requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. Sarbanes-Oxley essentially creates another added layer of bureaucracy within public companies because of the compliance and cost issues associated with meeting Sarbanes-Oxley regulatory requirement."
