As one of the largest meat processing companies in the world, OSI Industries employs 20,000 people. That means providing jobs for folks in more than 17 countries — but it also means creating a workspace where multiple ethnicities, races, ages, genders and nationalities all come together to work on a common goal and a shared mission.
OSI Industries is an organization that has never taken workplace diversity for granted. In fact, this company is deeply committed to creating jobs for people from all walks of life — and bringing them together in an environment where all are treated with dignity, respect and equality.
OSI Industries is extremely proud of the deep level of diversity it has achieved among its 20,000 employees. For example, in OSI’s European and American (North and South) facilities, 40% are women. In the Asia-Pacific zone, 40% of those holding management positions are also women.
Age discrimination is also something OSI officials have looked at and taken proactive measures to ensure nondiscriminatory policies. Consider that 32% of all employees in the Americas are age 50 to 65.
OSI Industries is also proud of the fact that its employees have developed a deep sense of loyalty and belonging as they work for a company that strives to treat everyone like family. That’s probably why almost a quarter of all OSI employees have worked for the company in excess of five to 10 years. That’s one of the highest employee retention figures among large, international corporations.
OSI employees are also encouraged by company policy to become active in their local communities. That means getting involved in charity drives or programs — but also taking the initiative to start their own projects. An example is OSI’s major partnership with Feeding America, the premier organization in the United States which provides for food banks that feed families experiencing food insecurity. OSI employees contribute hundreds of thousands of pound of food per year to Feeding America outlets across the nation.

Ryan Seacrest began hosting the famous New Years Eve celebration in 2005 to help out Dick Clark. This year marks his 14th year filling this position. However this is just one of the many positions Mr. Seacrest has held through the years. He hosted American Idol from 2002 to 2016 and even signed on to host their reboot.

JHSF has graced Brazil with its real estate brilliance in these recent years. It, however, would have had a substantially harder time impressing everyone so much without the guidance of Jose Auriemo Neto. This man is leading JHSF’s charge in his prized CEO position, and he made the progressive business decisions to build luxury residential properties, retail properties and even an exclusive airport. Auriemo is proving to be extremely adept at finding the best opportunities for his business to exponentially grow and move further forwards.
Brazil first saw JHSF come into the market in 1972, and Mr. Auriemo’s father made the bold decision to found it. It has been very lucrative for the company to now operate with the vision of Jose Auriemo Neto as its sole compass. JHSF has also been known to contribute significantly to a few important causes, and one of the strongest ones it has donated to is the area of sustainability.
There are many things that Brazil is thankful for regarding the projects of JHSF, but there are actually a number of newer markets that it has been operating in recently, and these are much-coveted international markets. There are successful JHSF projects located in parts of Uruguay, New York and Florida. Jose Auriemo Neto is lucky, clearly, to have such a wonderful team of leadership with whom he can work in order to bring his thoughts of JHSF’s future into the physical reality.
Jose Auriemo Neto has gained Brazilian real estate respect for all that he has done with JHSF, and that is something that is extremely well-earned for this talented chief executive officer. Developing new, and usually luxurious, properties is what he is best at, and there are hotels, malls, offices and academic projects that have been heavily influenced by him and this entity.
FAAP University gave to him an education that thoroughly prepared to lead JHSF. Jose Auriemo Neto is on pace to become even more successful with Jimmy Choo, Pucci and Hermes all agreeing to form partnerships with him and the powerful organization with regards to JHSF’s retail endeavors.
Betsy DeVos is no stranger to being in the public eye, or “in the ring” when it comes to politics. Admirers and critics of DeVos alike both characterize her as a polite and cordial politician, who can truly break out the big guns when it comes to the ideals that she believes in.
Ms. DeVos grew up in western Michigan, and even spent time in her youth working for her father, Edgar Prince, at his company supplying auto parts. Prince, too, was a fighter. Like Betsy, Edgar was a devout backer of causes both conservative and Christian at home; at work, he built his company into a billion-dollar business. Her brother Erik’s company also represented conservative values as an overseas contractor for personnel from the United States. Betsy’s husband, Dick, came from a wealthy family, shares conservative values, and is similarly a political fighter with a hand in many businesses.
Mr. and Mrs. DeVos each were educated in private schools, as were their children; because of this, opponents tend to believe that they have a bit of a disconnect with the average American family. Supporters of her plan to redirect tax dollars from public schools toward charter or private schools will cite that this move actually gives more choices to lower-income families; further, it creates a sense of competition that will encourage improvement for all schools in the long run. Due to the effort of Betsy DeVos, along with husband Dick, the largest concentration of charter schools is in the city of Detroit, where the couple has put in great effort in the education system with their philanthropy.
Ms. Devos has been known over the years as not only an advocate of charter schools, but also as an advocate for school vouchers and a major donor to the Republican party. Those who know her in a political light warn against the belief that she will be meek, or will be focused on seeking approval as a team player. While she puts on a sweet and gracious face publicly, there are politicians who know her better than that. They describe her as effective and relentless. She is reputable as resourceful; especially because, in her case, she has great resources to work with.
The effectiveness of Betsy DeVos is proven greatly in her home state. Those who know her, and have seen her in action, are well aware that her resources and family wealth are vastly overshadowed by her hard work and determination.
Wes Edens Interest In Sports Has Gone International
Wes Edens is CEO and co-founder of the Fortress Investment Group. He began his successful journey in the finance industry by receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and Business Administration at Oregon State University. However, finance is not Wes Edens only love. He is also a big sports fan.
In 2014, he and his partner purchased the Milwaukee Bucks from previous owner Herb Kohl. Kohl sold the Bucks for 555 million dollars with the understanding that he would build a new arena for the team. Edens also promised to keep the team in Wisconsin.
After having much success with owning a basketball team, he has gone international. Wes Edens, along with billionaire Nassef Sawiris, recently purchased a majority stake in the Aston Villa Football Club. Sawiris and Edens, however, are new to the soccer experience. To help guide them on this new journey, the previous owner, Tony Xia, a Chinese business, will stay on as co-chairman of the board. Xia is excited to have both Sawiris and Edens on board and hopes this investment will significantly help the club.
The club itself is considered to be an upcoming team despite the fact that they once a popular club in the Premier League. However, the club over the last several years has fallen on a bit of bad luck. In 2016, they were kicked out of the Premier League to the second tier due to too poor performance. The Villa Club had also started to have financial difficulties due to lack of interest in their team.
The team has begun to restructure and narrowly lost out on the bid for the big leagues this past May. However, with the new investment from Edens and Sawiris, the club is not giving up. After all the Premier League is always interested in teams that come with money and with Edens and Sawiris backing them, they should be playing for the league soon.

Evolution of Smooth brand Lip Balm, better known as EOS, has become so popular in the last decade for quite a few reasons. Those who try EOS balms routinely buy them for their fun shapes and the fact that they actually work, but those customers who dig deeper find even more reasons to love it!
Evolution of Smooth was founded by Craig Dubitsky and Jonathan Teller in 2006 as the personal care division of their company, The Kind Group of New York. Teller almost immediately began focusing solely on EOS, which he has since ran and grown into a successful endeavor. One of the first things consumers notice about EOS balms is their unique egg shape, which is actually one of the biggest reasons for their success. The sphere shape has the advantage of standing out among a crowd of tube shaped lip balms; also, it is a bit easier to find in your purse!
EOS has not made it this far just because of its fun packaging. There are other ways that the company has made an everyday essential, like lip balm, a fun part of the user’s day. They frequently release Limited Edition series with intriguing flavors, that are fun for the customer and come in more interesting packaging. The most recent series is partnered with RED, and gives a portion of the proceeds to breast cancer research.
On top of the fun look, great colors and packaging, and even the Limited Edition series, EOS’s biggest draw to most consumers is the ingredients. The all-vegan, completely hypoallergenic, and gluten-free line is fully dermatologist-tested and, most importantly, it is completely cruelty-free to animals. EOS avoids artificial fragrances and parabens, and instead fills its balms with ingredients such as jojoba oil, shea butter, and rich cocoa. Today’s consumer may come for the fun sphere shape, but they are staying with EOS for their high-quality ingredients.
