18308. Organizational Behavior at Wal-Mart. This paper examines how Wal-Mart has applied three organizational concepts – organizational culture, communications, and human resources practices. Providing numerous examples from the business press, the analysis considers the extent to which Wal-Mart’s application of these three main organizational behavior concepts has been successful, unsuccessful, or some combination of both. It is argued that Wal-Mart makes conscious use of these concepts in an effort to control workers, improve efficiencies, and ensure consistency in operations. The paper concludes that Wal-Mart’s “culture of control” and its supporting and reinforcing organizational behavior does not necessarily produce optimal results. In recent years especially, Wal-Mart’s organizational behavior has been a lightening rod for criticism and an adverse influence on the company’s reputation. KEYWORDS: organizational behavior corporate culture walmart communications human resources management union-busting. APA Style. 10 pages, 48 footnotes, 28 bibliographic sources. 3,386 Words.   $70
