APPLE’S GLOBAL IMPACT
The world’s leading software and electronics manufacturer “Apple” has revolutionized business operations in America. Apple’s “global ingenuity” (Robbins & Judge, 2013, p. 35) or its ability to use comparative advantages to advance its operations is a game changer. In acknowledging Apple’s global stance, we consider the pros and cons for business decisions that propel the company forward, the expansion of its workforce outside of the United States, and the increase of employee diligence and flexibility at manufacturing facilities internationally.
PROS AND CONS OF LOCAL AND OVERSEAS LABOR
The world economy demands individuals drive innovation. Apple, has nearly 750,000 employees with only 43,000 of them being a part of the American workforce (Robbins & Judge, 2013). Apple discovered that employing skilled workers outside the United States to assemble product hardware would position the company to better meet product demand. Global expansion equips Apple with the ability to meet demand, guarantee its customers a quality and reliable product, which in return generates billions of dollars in revenues annually.
Although Apple is flourishing, acquiring overseas labor makes United States workers seem unmotivated and unfit to meet the demands of major companies (Robbins & Judge, 2013). This limits the possibility for American workers to be employed in the world market by other major companies. However, it is inaccurate that American workers are unfit.
