Mal Mart, Inc., day care kids is a mid-sized business, mindful of best practices within the early childhood community, compliant with applicable laws and regulations, and in concert with the culture of its individual clients, establishes appropriate rules, monitors for compliance, communicates effectively with both parents and employers, and attracts and maintains professional staff members who are licensed/certified and who consistently provide both developmental education and individual attention to the children in their care.

Our target market will be parents who work in the Tysons Corner Area which plan to use these Human Resource Departments as a catalyst to directly gain access to employees and indirectly gain trust and credibility. We believe that if the HR Departments grant us access to its staff then employees will in turn feel more comfortable with using our services.

The market for human resources in day care kids, like any other labor market, is made up of an interaction between demand and supply.

However strategy exists in all organizations even though it may not be written down and articulated. It defines the organization’s behavior and how it tries to cope with its environment.(p.110).

In the part of organizations people are now the biggest asset. The knowledge, skills and abilities have to be deployed and used to the maximum effect if the organization is to create value.
