From Equality of Opportunity to Profit. Practices of Companies in Romania to Ensure Equality of Opportunity and Avoid Discrimination Cases to Achieve Economic Goals


  • Aurelian Virgil Baluta

    () ("Dimitrie Cantemir" Christian University)


The paper presents the main practices of companies in Romania to ensure equality of opportunity and avoid discrimination cases. I regard the equality of opportunity as a factor in increasing corporate profits. I find out practices like: establishing interdependence between the organizational culture, human resource management and globalization processes, the gradual introduction of the cultural characteristics of the mother country in multinational companies, punishing attempts or proven practices of discrimination according to national rules, decision-making mechanisms based on the data output of the data processing systems or the economic justification and explanation of any deviations, the use of the concept of leadership in nominating the heads of the organization as an image of a successful leader appreciated in his activity by most of the business partners, based on the staff’s trust and his own behavior. The paper is a case study on a research contract.
