What would you do? Please read the following scenarios and describe how you would respond.
Sergeant Tom Gresham is newly promoted and assigned to patrol on the graveyard shift; he knows each officer on his shift, and several of them are his close friends; you are his patrol lieutenant. Gresham was an excellent patrol officer and prides himself on his reputation and ability to get along with his peers. He believes that doing so will result in greater productivity from his officers, and he makes efforts to socialize with them after work. Gresham also believes that a supervisor should not “get in the way of good police work,” and his officers say he is “a cop’s cop.” In his view, his duty shift officers perform very well, generating the highest number of arrests and citations in the entire department. Unfortunately, his shift is also generating the highest number of citizen complaints for abusive language and improper use of force. Gresham believes that such complaints are “the price of doing business.” One Monday morning, Gresham is surprised at being summoned to your office. You show Gresham a substantial number of use-of-force complaints lodged against his officers during the past two weeks while he was away on vacation. Despite your efforts to explain the gravity of the situation, Gresham fails to grasp the seriousness of the complaints and how his supervisory style may have contributed to them.
1.What do you believe are some of Sergeant Gresham’s problems as a new supervisor? Could anything have been done before he assumed his new position to help him understand his role better?
2. As Gresham’s superior officer, what advice would you give to him? Are there any other supervisory or command officers who you should ask to be involved in dealing with the situation?
3. What corrective action must Sergeant Gresham take immediately with his team of officers?

This discussion is about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), focusing on the brief case study about Nike (p.101 in the textbook).
Nike pioneered offshore manufacturing by hiring third-party contractors in developing nations to work in its company-owned plants. Among other workers, the contractors hired minors at low pay in” sweatshops.” When the news became public in 1996, Nike faced negative public opinion, and then it established a Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Committee to ensure that labor practices were ethical across its supply chain.
After that, Nike was sued for allegedly knowingly making false and misleading statements in denying its direct participation in the abusive labor conditions abroad in manufacturing its products. The case was dismissed for procedural issues by the U.S. Supreme Court. Thereafter, Nike has worked on building its CSR profile through relief efforts and advocating fair wages and employment practices in its outsourced operations.
Thinking about Nike’s corporate practices, if you were to start a company that outsourced labor in order to reduce manufacturing costs, what decisions would you make to combine commercial objectives with social goals to improve the impact of corporate social responsibility efforts? How might the two conflict?
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories, which require supporting citations along with two scholarly peer-reviewed references supporting your answer.
**THE CASE STUDY IS ATTCHED**
Purpose: The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate that you have met the learning outcomes for Unit 1.
Skills: The assignment will provide an opportunity to practice the following skills:
Collecting and organizing information and data from appropriate sources;
Synthesizing information to summarize key factors that demonstrate understanding of complex information;
Describing how historical events and data can influence change and societal values
Comparing and contrasting similar data points across different time periods
Composing a thoughtful written paper that is organized, coherent, well written, concise, and utilizes information from the course modules and textbook to demonstrate what you have learned in this unit
Knowledge: This assignment will also help you to become familiar with the following important content knowledge in this course:
Major factors that influence changes in social welfare – population, economics, perspectives of the effectiveness of social institutions and views of human nature; underlying societal values
The different underlying societal values and attitudes that influenced thoughts and ideas in the Colonial and Pre-Civil War periods about how best to provide help and to whom.
How the societal values and attitudes changed over time and led to different methods of helping different populations.
The importance of studying the history of social welfare and social work and history’s impact on the current context of the field of social work and delivery of social services in the United States
Tasks: This assignment consists of a 4-6 page PAPER. To complete this paper you should:
Review Modules 1-3 content. Use the textbook and the material contained in the Canvas modules and Discussion Boards for weeks 1 through 4 to review the information and content. Pay attention to the different methods for providing help to those in need and the societal changes that occurred during these historical periods.
Create an outline to guide you during the review and paper writing process. Your working outline as you develop the paper should consist of the following main sections: Title Page; Introduction; Main Body;
The Title Page should include your name, the number and name of the course and semester, the name of the assignment (Unit 1 Assessment), and the date it is submitted.
The Introduction should be a one paragraph summary of what the paper is about.
Within the Main Body of the outline, organize the content areas of the paper based on the instructions below (Note: be sure to use subheadings and paragraphs as needed to separate out your different sections and thoughts):
Describe the Colonial Poor Laws and the different methods for providing help to the poor (e.g., outdoor relief, almshouses, and later, specialized organizations and institutions to serve different populations) that were developed in the Colonial and pre-Civil War periods.
Compare and contrast two different methods by discussing their similarities and differences as they relate to:
The ways in which each method revealed values about the cause of poverty and who deserves aid and assistance.
The underlying societal values and attitudes of each method that influenced thoughts and ideas about which methods to use to administer aid and assistance and to whom.
Explain how the societal values and attitudes changed over time and led to different methods of helping different populations.
Describe the methods of helping that you think were most effective and explain why.
The Conclusion should be 1-2 paragraphs and briefly summarize your major points in the paper (think of this as the reader’s “take away” – what do you want them to remember about what you wrote?). Your Conclusion should also include a brief explanation as to why it is important for social work students to study the history of social welfare and social work.
Proofread your paper. Prior to submitting the finished paper, you should check that you have met all the criteria for success. Also be sure to proofread for spelling/grammar errors and typos, and make sure your formatting is consistent throughout (11or 12 point font, subheadings, 1 inch margins, page numbers).
Tip: It is often helpful to have someone else read over your paper to make sure it flows well, makes sense and to catch errors. This does not have to be someone in the course, it can be a family member, or friend you trust. Another proofreading technique is to read the paper aloud to yourself. Often errors that you hadn’t seen before pop out at you when you read aloud, and if a particular sentence or paragraph doesn’t make sense, you can hear it and then correct it right away.
Criteria for Success: Success in this course depends upon your ability to stay current with the weekly modules and the work of keeping up with readings, discussions, and any other activities required. For this paper, you will be graded based on the rubric.
