March 17, 2013 Work preference some people prefer to work for themselves or own a business others prefer to work for an employer. Well if I would have to decied I would say that I would like to work for a employer but don’t get me wrong I owning your own business would have its up and down just like any thing in life. And being self employed would have its ups and downs to an working for some company is the same way. The reason I would like to work for some company is because I would not have the stress that comes with owning a company or being self employed. They have the bills that come with owning and self employed companys then you have the part of having to hire people and making sure that they are onest and they will help make the company better by working harder. And then you have to be able to buy all the things that your company needs to keep on going and getting better but theres the good side of both of them. Like you get to make your own hours as self employed and when you own your company because you’re the boss and you are able to do what ever you wont when you wont to. Thens theres the part of have the ablity to make a lot of money and have a great life. The reason why I wont to work for some one is because is so that I don’t have to worrie about paying all the bill that comes with owning a company. I would do better buy just working for them so I would never have to fire any one or lay them off because the compay is not doing good and I cant afford to keep them on the payroll it would be hard for me to do that. As a employ I can work hard and better my self and the company and be able to grow with in the company. That’s why I think it would be better to be apart of some thing reath then own something.

Disability Inclusion at the Work Place

...Disability Inclusion at the Work Place Robert Long Keiser University Abstract There are many reasons for inclusion of those with physical or mental impairments. From State and Federal tax breaks to social correctness. There are some limitations these same individuals might impose on a business such as needing adaptive equipment or better access to work areas. However, the time and monies invested will pay off in ways that a business cannot easily measure. Equality and inclusion for all makes good business sense for all parties involved. Disability Inclusion at the Work Place The subject of disability is not something the average person really thinks about, until he or she or a close loved one is confronted with the limitations and bias of a disabled person. There is one fact about disability that is imposable to ignore. There are no limitations on age, race, national origin, sex, physical fitness. Disability can occur at any time or place and to anyone. This fact alone is the reason this topic should be important to everyone. Franklin D. Roosevelt summed it up best: “We know that equality of individual ability has never existed and never will, but we do insist that equality of opportunity still must be sought" (Thompson, 2009). However, a disability in the work place has been a sore spot for many business owners in America. Until the last twenty years, the potential of hiring a disabled person was never a high priority. Yet hiring a physically or mentally impaired...

The Work Place

...Running head: THE WORK ENVIROMENT 1 The Work Environment Arthur Stevens Eng. /120 December 12, 2013 Carole Miller The Work Environment I really enjoyed reading and gained a lot of insight from the article Image of Social Workers in Fiction written by Beverly B. Nichols. After reading this article I am able to take away several lessons from it. The first lesson and insight I gained from reading this article was the bias and opinions that we as a society place on individuals based on their profession. I had never sat back and thought before reading this article that I personal feel that people should think and act a certain way because they work a particular job. For example; I feel that all nurses should be nice and sweet because most of the time they are dealing with sick individuals but that is not always the case. I also feel that waitress and bartenders should be very sociable and nice because they are dealing with the pubic but I have also found that is not always the case. Just like all professions the article placed a biased on social workers because they are perceived to have an impact based on amount of control they can have on the lives of others. However, social workers view themselves as regular individuals and wish people would view them as they view themselves; just regular individuals who work every day to make ends meet and are just trying to do their job to the best of their ability. As a licensed barber I have similarities...

Motivation in the Work Place

...Extrinsic (also called hygiene factors or Dissatisfiers). These do not cause motivation by themselves, but if they are absent they cause dissatisfaction. They include things like company policies, relationship with boss and peers, quality of supervision, salary, work conditions etc; and 2. Intrinsic factors (also known as motivators or satisfiers). These are needed to motivate employees to higher performance. They include things like recognition, responsibility, job satisfaction and other things related to the job itself. b) People quit their jobs if the company they work for does not provide the intrinsic factors needed on the job. Extrinsic: If their relationship with the boss is not encouraging at all, that will be a problem too. Absence of recognition given their efforts or achievements, will also be a cause for concern. c) How an organization or manager can put this theory into practice: An organization or manager can effectively motivate their employees by first making such that the necessary hygiene factors are in place. Starting with salary, organizations should ensure that their employees are adequately compensated monetarily. Also providing the basics of getting their work done, like clean work environment, computers where needed, great policies etc will be a great plus. Equally important, an organization should focus more on their people, know what intrinsic factors are important to them and implement it in their culture as much as possible. This......

An assault, or threat of an assault, directed toward a worker on duty falls under the category of workplace violence. There are a lot of issues that can cause workplace violence. Stress, economic hardship and the inability to control anger are all some issues that can lead to health and safety issues. OSHA, as well as state and government agencies give practical guidelines to establish safe working environments, the role of a manager is very important in aiding in the prevention of workplace violence. Manager/supervisors responsibilities are to first ensure that your own behavior and management is the example you want their employees to follow. They need to make sure that their behavior is appropriate. Certain behaviors or allowing certain behaviors from employees can cause a hostile or “unhealthy” work environment. Always remember that allowing any form of aggressive or inappropriate conduct can cause a hostile or threatening work environment. Their employees may feel intimated or harassed while at work. The following are just some things that managers need to do to prevent workplace violence. Involving employees in making decisions can make them feel as if they are valuable versus being frustrated.

When questions do arise or input is requested, it is done through email. It is not necessary that any of that work be conducted in the physical office of _______________________. Telecommuting and virtual offices benefit the company and the employee. As Pomeroy (2007) pointed out, companies can waste enormous amounts of financial resources on “unused space.” When employees are not sitting at their desks, that empty space is dead and expensive real estate. While every employee in ¬_________________ had their own desk, desktop computer, office space and land-line phone, only 3-5 were in the office on any give work day. -_________________, paid rent on the building, bought office furniture, paid utilities, purchased desktop computers, and incurred many other overhead expenses assuming everyone would be using the space on the daily basis.

The socioeconomic impact of the business we chose, McMenamins has on the public and its employees is great. For the public it provides a melting pot where many different backgrounds can come together and blend without prejudice for a meal and a craft beer. McMenamins is also active in helping the communities its business is related to such as, the Bagdad Theater and Pub helps with the Annual Hawthorne Holiday Stroll, “dedicated to the ideals of community involvement and making Hawthorne a desirable place to work, shop, and live”. (McM web) Their web page has many more events just like this one. As for the employees, I’ve read reviews of current and former employees some say it’s great place to work, some didn’t like it as much. The biggest complaints were working conditions, low pay and lack of upward mobility. All being equal this is a very tough business where there is a lot of turn over. I also discovered that there’s a large number of employees that have worked for McMenamins for twenty years or more. This also creates a tougher market for upward movement because of long term employees getting the opportunities because of their commitment.

Strong was rotating though the company to become more familiar with the operations and employees before moving on to another division. The trouble came when Strong’s boss sent him an article about women in the organization feeling left out. Strong’s intent was to get to know Mayer to reduce some of the barriers, so he sought out opportunity to chat, and thought their conversations went well. Mayer took the matter to Cecil Groves’ the human resource vice president in charge of investigating sexual harassment complaints. She listened to Mayer’s complaints and warned Strong about his behavior. She also told Mayer that she did not have a case based on the story line, and how the company was full of military men, and maybe they do not have the hang of having women in the work place, or knows what appropriate or inappropriate behavior with professional women is, then advising her to just lighten up.

Having an emergency exit sign is very important because if there happens to ever be a fire or another form of emergency it will make it quick and easy for individuals to find the quickest exit and leave safely.

The communication of health and safety is important to everyone so if in case of emergency everyone knows what to do and how to react. It is important for all the staff to know what to do in case of every emergency and to stay calm. It is common for places to do fire drills so that everyone knows where to go and how to react in case of a fire.

Communication in the Work Place

...Trying to convey a message in the work place could be complicated, because you have different cultures and so that meant everyone didn’t understand or got a different meaning of the message that management was trying to get across. I am referring to when I worked for one of the suppliers of the big three AAM (American Axle &Manufacturing) the big three had an agreement with UAW to practice a fair days pay for a fair days work. Most of the time the workers didn’t want to follows those rules or they would put their own understanding on what they wanted or what was best for them. In order for the people to work and have fair representation we would need the UAW to help the workers understand what was going on when management was not being fair and letting us know of our rights as workers. They would help us understand and help us communicate our message that we wanted to get across. Being the only female job setter on my shift made it hard for me to talk with supervisors who were all men, I was always questioned on my decision making, one incident I was not trained on how to repair one particular machine and my supervisor was going to write me because I refused to work on the machine after it was said and done I had to call my committed person out in order for me not to get written up.
