The increased role of women in the workforce has changed in the last decade and will continue to change into the decades to follow. Because of this organizations will need to evaluate the factors of women in the workplace, flexibility, and pay. To theorize what may change for women in the next ten years, is one of optimism. Historically, women have been treated differently in the workforce, long hours, less pay and limitations in advancement compared to male co-workers. With today’s economic strife more women need to work outside of the home and coupled with family responsibilities women want flexible work hours and good pay.
It can mean the employee has variables such as when they are required to work or even their place of work. There are some example for flexible working, there are, flexi time, compressed hours, annual hours, staggered hours and job sharing. Flex time arrangement requires an employee to be at work during a specified core period, but lets them otherwise arrange their hours to suit themselves. This flexi time can be proving with scenario example in employee perspectives. The scenario is about a busy office has several employees wishing to take advantage of wellness release time.
However this may not be the case with women. Currently women are not on par dollar for dollar with men. Yet economists think that the gap between pay for women and men is due to different personal choices men and women make about personal fulfillment, child rearing and hours at work. Following this further, in the past women would choose to work less hours to allot more time to their children, but there is an increasing number of women who continue to work fulltime throughout motherhood with the help of flextime (Glass, 2004). However these women still encounter the same pattern of wage stagnation (McCrate, 2005).
Temporal flexibility: It is concerned with the pattern of hours worked and linked to the demands of the business. Seasonal or demand work is provided leading to Flexi-time systems. In addition, annual hours contracts allotted with increase in evening working. These flexibilities are achieved through a division of employees into: • Core workforce: The core group is composed of high-skill and high-pay workers recruited from the primary labour market. These workers are expected to deliver functional flexibility.
Understand your options by thinking about the range of flexible work practices available as well as those which are already in place in your organisation. Flexible working hours These may include flexible start and finish times, part time work, job sharing and consulting employees about rostering and compressed hours. Offer make-up time to allow employees to make up hours if they need to attend medical or other appointments. Match tasks to your employees’ varying capacities Offer employees multi-skilling and job rotation, training and transfer opportunities to meet workplace needs. If an employee is finding it hard to do a task, give it to another person.
Stress CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Statement of the Research Problem How do you cope with stress in the workplace to achieve a more balanced lifestyle? Stress is a part of everybody's life. Depending on the level of stress, it can control our lives, especially in the workplace. We begin to spend several long hours at work, and thus have less time for other things. Stressed employees may be unhappy and thus produce nominally.
Employees are spending at least forty hours a week at their jobs and those long hours at the office can be grueling. Having your significant other there with y... ... middle of paper ... ...ther things, is the company that attracts more employees. Ultimately the company who is able to change and accommodate is going to be the one that survives and flourishes. As long as employees continue to handle themselves in a diplomatic and respectable manner while participating in office romances, companies will grow more tolerable to the romances.
