IMO E...

In option C & D..possessive noun is "their" and "his" respectively....it should be "one's"...

|| ism error in option A.

Between B & E, E looks correct.

I went for B, and yes, I realize E is simpler. By the way, is the use of "as" in B wrong?

You mean to say that it should be "by employing of workers at the appropriate stage..." for the parallelism error to vanish?

And why is "as" wrong? can you elaborate?

There is no problem in "as"..
In option B ...above line should be "available for the making of important decisions, creating of partnerships, and planning of campaigns"

"the" is destroying ||ism..
