There are many factors that aid the prevalence of poverty. Firstly, it is difficult to
assess these causes because the word ‘poverty’ can be very subjective and difficult to
define. In attempting to define what poverty is, one would suggest having a lack of
income and resources not consistent with the requirements of the poverty line. Three
factors that play major roles as causes of poverty would be having a lack of education,
systemic discrimination, and inequities based on a capitalist system. This paper will look at ways in which these causes can be combated and at the same time evaluated in regards to it’s positive and negative aspectsVIEW DOCUMENT

A good way to deal with loss of staff is to introduce teams instead of a hierarchical type where a senior manager will look at his staff and choose a person who is popular, approachable and a hard worker to be a 'change agent' this person will assume responsibility for the smooth transition in the change process. Employees will be encouraged to give feedback on the new changes and then let the change agent know them this will make employees feel like they are contributingto the company.VIEW DOCUMENT

However, the problem with relative poverty is that it seems to measure economic inequality instead of poverty.
