"Allstate Insurance Company" Goal setting is the process of setting targets for accomplishment and has been used by individuals and groups to measure performance and get results. In the business world, goals commonly take the form of quotas, work norms, objectives, deadlines and budgets. Allstate Corporation managers viewed diversity not as a goal but as a process that is incorporated in the daily life of the company. Allstate launched its first positive action program back in 1969, which at the time their commitment to diversity was not linked to staffing, growth, and maintenance strategies toward business performance. As the book describes, although these initiatives were considered ground-breaking in their day, they were not linked to Allstate’s business strategy. It has been Allstate’s position that diversity is not about biased mandates or legal responsibility, but pay attention to inner and outer strategy. The inner diversity focus is about “unlocking the potential for excellence in all workers by providing them the tools, resources, and opportunities to succeed.” The outer focus of diversity is about making certain that the workforce matches the experiences, backgrounds, and sensitivities of the markets it serves.

    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.
