The success of the OSI Industries has not been by lack; it has been through the hard work and the commitment of the CEO of the firm that he has put for 40 years now. The first time, Sheldon Lavin had about the OSI Group, it went by the name Otto & Sons. He was a financial consultant with a dream of creating a chain of companies specializing in food production and distribution.After listening to the pitch of the Otto & Sons, he knew their plan could work from the knowledge he had. Later, when the father retired, the sons invited Sheldon Lavin to join the company as partners. It was not long after this that Sheldon Lavin realized the firm was growing so fast and decided to work full time with the Otto & Sons. Over the decades, the company has dominated the market. The strategies and great management have significantly contributed to the success of the firm. Handling such a market is not easy.
This is because the different locations that the OSI Industries is located have a different culture and preference. To avoid inconveniencing their clients, they have chosen representatives who understand the preferences of the people in the various locations to run the branches. They avoid micromanaging and let the representatives be innovative and do their work. Sheldon Lavin says that their great culture has helped retain their employees. They have 20000 employees around the world. They rarely recruit employees because their employees don’t leave the foundation. Retention of employees contributes to the success of the firm because the old employees understand the mission, objective and culture of the firm.
Lavin also says that the good relationship between him and his team members have contributed to his innovation. He believes for anyone to be innovative, they have to be humble. This means leaving your door open for anyone who may have an idea that they feel could change the face of the organization. The success Lavin is enjoying did not come without any challenges. He admits that doubts and fear were factors he had to deal with at the beginning of his venture. He says when everyone is trying something for the first time, they are unsure of whether it will work or not. Sheldon Lavin felt the tasks that he was about to undertake were so overwhelming compared to the skills he had. At this point, he could not turn back, the only option he had used the little energy he had left, to do something. Fortunately, he made it.
It is in a few months to go, and the midterm elections will take place. End Citizens United is doing its role by endorsing the candidates that have demonstrated their support on reforms of the campaign finances.
End Citizens United is an organization that began in 2015. It was a response to a decision made by Supreme court in 2010 in a case between FEC and Citizens United. The organization is seeking a way to overturn the decision made and support the reform of campaign finance by doing a wide range of activities. The organization has been supporting political candidates who have good track records of rejecting the dark money they are getting. The dark money is for a favor of measures, and the organization will prevent its flow into Washington. The organization is endorsing even those that are contending to unseat the Republican incumbents.
The question is how a political organization can develop from just a single case in Supreme Court? The formation of End Citizens United was to respond directly to FEC vs. Citizens United decision in 2010, which opened the flowing gates for the dark money. It was pouring the unrestricted to political candidates that are getting paid and bought for some personal gains. It prevented the candidates from representing their constituents, and they served the interests of these wealthy corporations and individuals that have donated to them millions of dollars to support their campaigns.
The End Citizens United, therefore, supports the pre-reformed candidates only. Due to the shower of this dark money that is flowing into unabated political candidates coffers, the candidates get an unfair advantage in regards to those candidates that avoid to align themselves. The role of United Citizens United is to put in level the playing ground by raising some money through grassroots efforts where it will use that money to support the pro-reform candidates. In the years that the organization has existed, it has been able to emerge as a player that is powerful in American politics. Those candidates that are endorsed by End Citizens United has many advantages because they get connections with grassroots members of ECU despite anyone having the chance for the dark money.
