Is Telecommuting Unfair To Women # 2 ?
[ send me this paper ]
In this well-argued 6 page paper, the point is made that tele-commuting does little more for women than keep them at home-- where they were a century ago. Women who work from their home office/computer are expected not only to handle corporate business from 9 - 5, they are also usually expected to take care of household affairs and even to raise children during the same time. This stands in contrast with men who cyber-commute but who are not expected to do anything other than work during the course of the business day. Various other relevant ethical issues are discussed and it is ultimately concluded that women have very little to gain in today's workplace. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

Issues Concerning Maternity Leaves
[ send me this paper ]
A 9 page paper discussing executive maternity leave. It has been common to find that women previously on track to break through the "glass ceiling" have been transferred instead to the "mommy track," forced to choose between family and career.

The woman stands to lose all that she has worked to attain throughout her working life, and the company potentially faces a discrimination suit as well as a failed product launch. However, there are alternative arrangements that can be made in which both sides benefit and remain on track to achieving their goals if they will only look for them. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

Issues Concerning The Hiring Of Temporary Workers ("Temps")

Jeffrey Pfeffer’s “The Human Equation: Building Profits by Putting People First”
[ send me this paper ]
This 5 page report discusses the 1998 business management book, “The Human Equation.” Author Jeffrey Pfeffer asserts that far too many companies have focused on creating a short-term and immediately more profitable bottom line and better-satisfied investors without considering the long-term implications of downsizing and the shedding of old businesses. Creating a “lean” economic model that stresses outsourcing has become a driving force in businesses ranging from manufacturing to healthcare. Pfeffer contends that a great deal of “downsizing” is essentially a throwback to employment practices that are more than a century old. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

Accountability in Nursing: The Interrelationships of the Hierarchical Structure
[ send me this paper ]
A 5 page discussion of accountability in nursing. Contends that accountability is an integral component of all aspects of nursing.

In the case of student nurses, and indeed all levels of nurses, this accountability is channeled through a chain of command, a chain of accountability which can extend both upwards (through the institutional hierarchy), downwards (to the patient) and even sideways (to colleagues and other professionals) dependent on the organizational structure.

The Relationship Between Health And Stress
[ send me this paper ]
12 pages in length. The relationship between stress and health is unmistakable; indeed, the correlation that exists between the two entities is so strong that one's very existence hinges upon the ability to effectively balance good stress with the bad. What could possibly be good about stress? It is a natural motivator as well as a barometer of life. If an individual lives each day without some simple form of stress, the mind/body connection is not stimulated. However, this stress is completely divergent from the kind that works to tear down the mind/body connection; rather, beneficial stress can be as simple as being excited over a baseball game or anticipating a first date. While such emotions are not typically associated with stress, they do place a certain amount of anxiety and tension upon the mind/body connection, albeit a significantly more positive encumbrance than that of negative stress.

Labor Strikes' Effectiveness
[ send me this paper ]
A 6 page paper discussing the damage that labor strikes can do to the object of the strike. There have been other famous strikes, most as evenly divided in results as these two century-apart strikes discussed here (UPS and Carnegie Steel). Minneapolis' Bloody Friday on July 20, 1934 resulted in a better Teamster contract at company expense, but also resulted in the death of two strikers. The rail strike in Buffalo in 1877 also was violent, but had the distinction of having the support of the middle class. It can be argued that conditions a century ago necessitated drastic measures. Those strikes of today in venues such as UPS and airline companies reflect more greed than anything else, hurting the company and ultimately diminishing the gains by workers that otherwise would be possible.

But it is also more common for candidates to also interview the company in order for them to be assured they are making the best choices for themselves and for their families, and those interviewers now must take as much care in their responses as interviewees have had to maintain for generations.

Motivating Employees in the Law Enforcement Environment
[ send me this paper ]
6 pages. In determining what it takes to motivate employees in the law enforcement or courthouse setting, studies have been undertaken that show that the number one most important action is effective leadership.

For those working in areas which are subject to possible dangerous elements, it is only through the knowledge and determination of the leadership and the effectiveness of that leadership to make the employee feel capable, that one can truly feel secure in knowing that the workplace environment is a safe and supportive one.

But in light of maintained immigration levels over the past decade, the path towards changing the negative perceptions of NESB immigrants within the workforce is imbedded not only in a system designed to enhance language skill development, but also to dispel the myths related to their lack of skills and their long-term impacts on the job market.

This writer discusses why their practices were abusive and what they should do instead. No bibliography.

Defining the Reasons Behind Organizational Turnover
[ send me this paper ]
A 25 page research paper seeking the reasons for and causes of organizational turnover. The problem of organizational turnover, or employee retention, is an expensive one for American businesses.

Of the research that has been performed, too much of it concludes with ideas along the lines of "employees least satisfied with their jobs are the ones who are most likely to leave them." The best information we have at the current time is a combination of reliable empirical research, insightful observation and common sense. Bibliography lists 20+ sources.

Organizational Turnover and Employee Retention
[ send me this paper ]
A 13 page paper discussing turnover in terms of causes and costs. Costs of retention may appear to be high, but the costs of turnover are greater—the primary difference is that the costs of retention are so much more easily quantifiable. High turnover rates carry other effects other than just costs of replacement, and it is those costs that are so difficult to define. Senior management may never make a connection between falling sales and increasing turnover as customers feel they are left to fend for themselves when confronted with new people who may well have not been sufficiently trained to do their new jobs; and it may not be possible to reliably judge how excessive turnover affects those employees remaining. Indeed, the costs of retention are lower. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

( 10 pp) Whether it is a class assignment, or an event in the outside world, determining what and how to deal with any ethical situation is difficult.

Those businesses that are required for legal protection reasons to go through the "pain" of the review may as well gain some value from the process and the time required to produce the evaluation. As businesses adapt to the changing competitive climate in which they operate, we are likely to see many more innovations and a gradual reduction in the number of companies reporting standard practice.

A 10 page paper discussing the role of the expatriate in the multinational business setting. Expatriate training not only includes job duties, but the most effective expatriate training entails far more than the details of the job at hand.

Employers understand that the most productive and the most well-adjusted employees are those who also have a meaningful home life and do not pour all their energies into the needs of the company. In return, the company also does not need to pour all of its resources into a poorly-trained and uninformed individual whose family literally can cost the organization millions of dollars in a failed mission because they were unprepared to assimilate into the local society.

Expatriate Staffing & Dual Careers
[ send me this paper ]
6 pages in length. Employers of both small and large corporations looking to expand their companies overseas are often caught in a staffing trap that keeps them from realizing their goals. In order to secure effective global talent sourcing, their best option is to promote and transfer qualified employees who have already worked their way up the ranks. However, in today's economy, many workers have spouses who also work and cannot simply up and leave their hard earned positions. As a result, the one most qualified to open and effectively run the overseas operation is usually the last person available for the job, leaving the task to one less capable yet free to relocate. The writer addresses the downfalls of expatriate staffing and how dual career families represent one of the main points of contention. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

A 15 page paper discussing the way downsizing was. Much has come of the corporate downsizing experience, on both sides.

Such was not the case at the height of downsizing, however. This paper presents two examples each of companies that handled their downsizing well and those that did not.

(5 pp). According to business leadership author, De Pree "...one way to think about leadership is to consider a jazz band. Jazz-band leaders must choose the music, find the right musicians, and perform-in public. But the effect of the performance depends on so many things- the environment, the volunteers in the band, the need for everybody to perform as individuals, and as a group, the absolute dependence of the leader on the members of the band, the need of the leader for \the followers to play well."

Improving Morale And Productivity In A Union-Based Work Environment
[ send me this paper ]
5 pages in length. Maintaining morale and productivity in any work environment presents a challenge in and of itself; however, doing so in a union-based work environment brings forth challenges quite divergent from the typical workplace. That union workers are protected by a governing agent of overseers creates a type of mindset that often lends itself to exception, in that union workers are guaranteed certain rights under contract and by law are not required to go above and beyond those set standards. For example, a union painter might contract for a job that pays two hundred dollars per day for a nine-to-five shift. Because that contract guarantees his payment no matter what his attitude might be, he can show up to the job with a sour disposition day after day and as long as he performs his duties under the guidelines of his contract, his job cannot be threatened.

Today's Hourly Employees
[ send me this paper ]
A 20 page research paper attempting to discover a relationship between numbers of supervisors and hourly employees. The paper discovers that more important than number ratios is the overall culture of specific companies.

In the wake of downsizing waves, direct supervisors were responsible for so many hourly employees that they had no hope of real personal contact. Now, however, most businesses have discovered the middle, and optimal, range of number ratios, but overall corporate culture still plays a bigger role in productivity.

TQM Implementation
[ send me this paper ]
12 pages in length. The current trend within the fundamental basis of business operations is to establish a sense of empowerment, both from within and without the company, so as to implement an effectively working TQM program. However, in order to achieve the highest plateau in relation to quality, an organization's culture must first be identified, addressed and then consolidated if it lacks the necessary characteristics inherent to TQM. What it all comes down to in a word is people. People make an organization succeed or fail; without proper stimulation for the former, an employee base can prove poisonous to a company's aspirations. Additionally, because customer relations is likely the single-most important aspect of any organization's success, it stands to reason that implementing a TQM program is not only prudent and forward-thinking, but it is also beneficial toward bolstering an individual's desire to perform for no other incentive than personal pride. Without question, TQM defines the value of an organization and encourages it to strive for the epitome of customer satisfaction.
