Ultimately, the purpose of this paper is to offer an evaluation of the Florida Re-entry program ( Recovery, Treatment, and Rehabilitation). In this case, “factors” refers to both internal and external influences on the facility’s operation, both of which might have good and bad effects. At last, the facility’s internal environment, including its strengths and weaknesses, would be analysed. The facility’s capacity to make the most of opportunities and reduce risks posed by external sources would also be evaluated.
There are several internal factors that affect the performance of the subdivision. The first factor is human resources which refers to the members of the organization. The major internal factors affecting Florida Re-Entry Subdivision include strength of employees, strategic risks and the level of innovation. There is no more important internal business component than the quality of the company’s personnel. It is important to assess whether or not staff members are enthusiastic, committed, and skilled. Effectiveness and efficiency can also be increased by adjusting the procedures and connections between and within departments. Strategic risks faced by the corporation are another internal factor influencing the organization. As a result, these factors influence how well your company performs relative to its business plan. This may be the result of the effects of new technologies or shifts in consumer preferences. These elements may be dangerous since they have the potential to affect consumers’ opinions of the services offered by the organization (Nayer et al, 2021). Thirdly, the extent to which the company innovates has an impact. Staying ahead of the game is crucial. The marketing industry is a potential source of innovation. In addition, advertising strategy, employee development, and care could all play a role. The greatest approach to keep up with technological developments is to embrace new technology.
Florida Re-Entry Subdivision is affected by several factors in the external environment. One of the factors that have been affecting the organization is legislation. The facility is affected by the state and federal laws that are adopted and implemented in the state of Georgia. Another factor that affect the organization is the high level of inflation in the economy. This has contributed to increased prices of commodities needed in the operation of the organization. As a result of the increased prices, the overall expenditure of the organization has increased thus making it challenging for the management of the organization to run the organization within the allocated budget.
Strengths and weaknesses
There has been certain internal factors that contributes to the strength of the organization. One of the internal factors that contribute to the strength of the organization is the strong internal control. The presence of strong internal control in the management of the organization ensures the programs adopted in the organization are effective enough. Another strength of the organization is positive brand popularity where the organization has been associated with value creation in the society which in turn contribute to a greater number of members of the community supporting the programs proposed by the facility.
However, Florida Re-entry Subdivision is also affected by a major weakness of a lengthy decision-making process. This is contributed by presence of very many stakeholders who are involved in the planning and decision-making process.
Opportunities and Threats
One of the opportunities that are exposed to the facility is the development of awareness creation on the importance of re-entry programs. This has created a sense of importance on the role of re-entry programs and facilities in the community. With such attention, it becomes easier for the elected leaders to advocate the allocation of funds to the divisions (Butts, 2021).
However, the Florida Re-Entry program is faced by a threat of negative reputation in relation to the challenges involved in the re-entry process. According to critics, the division lacks effective framework and system to protect the needs of the clients during the re-entry program.
