Both study tours were very meaningful to me, especially the times we visited organizations. These companies are in the World’ s top 500 enterprises. It helped me to understand the different types of companies, develop a general idea about the size of the companies, the marketing strategies used and enterprise cultures. In Shanghai, we visited a few companies, such as Volkswagen, Baosteel, Lenovo and Tony’ s Farm. I was most impressed with Baosteel. I still remember when I was a child, I often heard people saying that if you are work Baosteel then you could be proud of yourself.
Baosteel has been part of the world’ s top 500 enterprises for the last nine years straight. I recognize and appreciate Baosteel’ s corporate culture and social responsibility focus. For example, Baosteel helps local communities to widen the surrounding roads and build schools and nursing homes. The roads are named Baosteel 1 Road, Baosteel 2 Road and so on. Also, in 2011 Baosteel’ s annual donations were about 6077.7ten thousand Yuan. In addition, the Baosteel Education Fund invested 9.43 million Yuan to reward 107 and universities, as well as 18 Chinese Academy of Science Institutes and 1212 outstanding teachers and students.
This behaviour made me understand that if I have my own business in the future then it would be appropriate to give back to the community. We visited Capital One bank Corporate Headquarters, GE medical healthcare, Black and Decker Corporate, the World Bank and Wal-Mart during the USA Study Tour. The biggest difference compared with companies in China was the strict security check when entering the building. I did not expect this we arrived, so I was a little surprised.
The security checks were not only for us but for anyone wanting to enter the building. It is easy to see why the United States pays more attention to security issues. The presentation from Black and Decker Corporation made me understand that enterprises need to develop, adapt and change to meet the various customer demands.
