1. Objective: How to make HR a strategic advantage for Sonoco 2. What is the right HR structure for Sonoco - centralization or hybrid? Why? Evaluate the different options - pros and cons. Be specific. Even the most successful organizations can’t rely on prior successes. Especially for a well-established organization such as Sonoco, remaining innovative and adapting the structure to the current environmental and industry demands is more important than ever. With the emergence of small, flexible firms, new global competition, increased for- eign investment, and a consolidation of major suppliers, Sonoco must be able to com- pete. Their changing product environment means a focus on becoming a one-stop shop, in this “Age of Differentiation.” This will mean a focus on specialization, and a fo- cus on packaging as a means of advertising to attract the end user. At the same time, there has been an introduction of new, more cost effective materials such as aluminum and plastics, and concurrently the introduction of global players from India and China, moving the focus of many buyers from price to quality.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
