Regardless of the setbacks that women have had to face in the corporate world, business women like Susan McGalla prove that they can be excellent and efficient leaders capable of handling any task. She, also, shows that women are breaking through the “no go” signs of a male dominated industry with their different personalities and adaptability to various roles within the company. By doing this the female leaders in the corporate world pave a path for other women to take places of importance on ireport.cnn.com, and the successful ladies will usually find themselves more than willing to assist the newcomers. The tides are changing.
As a founder of P3 Executive Consulting, LLC in Pittsburgh, Susan McGalla is a hardworking business woman that doesn’t expect pleasing results to simply be handed to her. She understands that climbing up the ladder as a business woman requires effort, passion, and confidence. In fact, Susan McGalla made the remark that she knew she had the potential for greatness, but she also understood that she was the only person that could unlock it.
Better yet, Susan McGalla explains that the prejudices in a corporate environment towards women have never held her back. Through her own efforts she could quickly rise through the ranks in her previous companies, even if they were mostly staffed by men at the time. She also mentioned a sincere hope that other women will follow her example. Instead of coming to expect certain “entitlements” from other workers or the company because of their gender, women should be both passionate and confident in their work. It takes a pursuit of effort to reach beyond those entitlements and accomplish on about.me something from their own work values. This definitely ties in with her remarks about confidence being instrumental to success. She was confident in her own abilities, and she was willing to perform well within a company by ignoring the commonplace prejudices. She mentions that she was raised to neither think about her own gender or others when undergoing a task, but instead value their hard work and capabilities first and foremost!
Excelling in any line of business or sector requires the creation of a trustworthy relationship with the clients. A trustworthy relationship yields to loyal clients who believe in the quality and price charged by their preferred service provider. Nevertheless, not all enterprises maintain this relationship due to greed for higher profits or returns. In recent times, Securus has come out to discourage the breach of integrity by GTL, which is an inmate communication provider.
The claim by Securus America Technologies to release a series of findings, reports, and facts about GTL’s illegal activities in its operations is intended to shame and condemn such wrongdoings. The aim of most industry players like Securus Technologies is not only to make money but also to provide customer services while considering their interests. The first release posted on PR Newswire revolved around the Louisiana PSC’s investigations on GTL’s wrongdoings, which were detailed in a formal document titled the Order No. U-20784-B.
GTL’s Integrity Breach
There were various findings from the investigations carried out by the Louisiana PSC. These actions were done when GTL offered outbound communication services to inmates in the Louisiana Department of Corrections.
The first unlawful action was the programming of their clocks, which are used to time the period taken in each call. GTL did this by including 15 to 36 extra seconds. The investigators also found that the programmed telephone calls used to increase the rates over those permitted by law.
Serving more than 1,200,000 inmates as well as 3450 corrections, public safety, and law enforcement agencies in the United States, Securus Technologies is a leading technology and inmate communications provider. Early this year, it was honored with an accreditation and A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. This was a resultant effect of the company’s relationship with BBB to achieve the desired standards of operation.
