Downsizing’s Effects on the Real Estate Market : 9 pages in length. Certainly the real estate industry, both residential and commercial segments, were greatly affected by the downsizing waves on either side of the year of 1990, as were many others. With the sustained growth of the national economy, however, many of those depreciated properties have now regained and even surpassed their former values. The private owners and real estate developers suffered, but we all really did, too. We’re growing now, and we even have the added benefit of lessons learned from the effects of downsizing. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Downsize.doc

Even though two-income families can make the downsizing transition much easier than those without a significant second income, there are still substantial issues they will have to overcome.

Homes have been lost, retirement funds have been decimated to meet living expenses, and some have even taken to living on credit card cash advances for their immediate needs when they saw no alternative.

Effects of Downsizing in the Private Sector : A 29 page research paper on downsizing in American corporations and the problems associated with the layoffs of personnel.

As the US economy continues its long prosperous upswing, it is increasingly difficult for employers to remain fully staffed, particularly at the blue collar and retail level. The paper gives the example of how the Chubb Group instituted policy changes to encourage employees to remain with the company. Competitive pressures are only building and businesses have to do all they can to contain costs and increase productivity in order to remain competitive. Constantly replacing or searching for qualified employees is a costly proposition. Bibliography lists 7 sources. RightOne.wps

The Effects of Training on Work Performance : An 8 page jumping-off place for a study on the effects of training related to job performance, based on interviews with five managers and ten employees each from two companies, both electronically-focused: one designs and produces ambulances and mobile MRI units; the other produces printed circuit boards for a variety of applications.

Issues Concerning The Hiring Of Temporary Workers ("Temps") : A 6 page paper describing issues concerning temporary workers in today's business world. A double-edge sword is presented by the fact that companies emphasize quality and yet they hire temps to save costs-- temps that are not as likely to work to their fullest potential or with the company's own interests in mind. Some of the pros and cons of temp work are cited : the writer feels that they are cost-effective, highly-available, and little or training is required by the company itself.

Defining the Reasons Behind Organizational Turnover : 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. Though there has been much discussion over the years as to just what the real problem is, what it might be, and what business practitioners and observers think it is, there has been little empirical research into its origins. 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. Turnover.wps

Employee Turnover / Voluntary vs Involuntary : A 12 page research paper that looks at different aspects of employee turnover. The focus is the costs associated with each voluntary and involuntary turnover, i.e., whether an employee quits or is fired. Both tangible and intangible costs are associated with each event, however, summarily firing an employee can result in extensive monetary costs, some of which are not readily apparent. The different costs are discussed as well as steps an employer should take if they decide to terminate someone's' employment. Bibliography included. Turnover.wps

Employee Assistance Programs : An 8 page research paper giving an overview of this type of employee benefit program—what they cover, who they affect, how they are used and how HR professionals are attempting to increase employee awareness of the programs’ full benefits. EAPs serve to assist the employee in their quest to either solve current personal problems or simply get over temporary "humps" in their lives. Employers recognize that it is to their advantage to have their employees the most productive they can be, even if achieving the highest level of productivity involves contributing cash and encouraging the seeking of outside help. EAPs address the needs requiring the assistance of mental health professionals. Bibliography lists 12 sources. EAP.wps

A 37 page paper that provides an overview of the literature relating to the use of employee evaluations, and supports the theory that they are a weak link in effective human resource management. Bibliography lists 30 sources. Empleval.wps

Human Resources / Positive Moves : A 15 page research paper on how companies are working to build and maintain positive relationships with their employees and the greater role of Human Resources in maintaining those resources. Some of the most profitable companies are also known as some of the best places to work (i.e., Hewlett-Packard), while other very profitable companies are only endured by their employees in a downsizing, competitive business climate. Much of the difference can be traced to the overall climate and culture of the organization. Bibliography lists 7 sources. HumanR.wps

Several aspects are discussed: behaviors associated with dissatisfaction, motivation, ways to increase employee satisfaction and how to assess the degree of satisfaction/disatisfaction on the job.

Bibliography lists seven sources. Human.wps

Management’s Influence On Human Resources / Entrepreneurship and Creativity : A 7 page research paper on the effects that a business’ Human Resource policies can have on the spirit of creativity and entrepreneurship within the company. Two examples given are Southwest Airlines and Lotus Development Corporation. While both officially and practically put their employees first, Southwest also includes the concept of providing enhanced customer service by ensuring they have happy employees. Lotus, at least in times past, just wanted happy employees. The fortunes of the two companies reflect what superficially seems to be a minor divergence of attitude. That single point, though, has made a world of difference. Bibliography lists 5 sources. HR-Role.wps

Democracy in the Workplace / Examples Of Success : A 16 page research paper examining the qualities of three of the "best" places to work: Measurement, Inc., Federal Express and GM’s Saturn division. Each of the three demands the best of their employees; each has some of the most loyal employees in their respective industries. The common bottom line among the three is that they view their employees as thinking, feeling individuals with needs and aspirations of their own, and each recognizes that happy, fulfilled employees equals happy, satisfied customers. In keeping with Theodore Levitt’s admonition that the sole purpose of any business is to create and then keep a customer, each of these companies recognizes that any business achieves that goal only through their employees. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Workdemo.doc

Multi-Cultural Issues In the Workplace : A 7 page paper that describes the issues within workplace environments impacted by multi-cultural interactions. The writer provides two examples of workplace situations impacted by a multi-cultural element. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Workplac.wps

The Effects of Music in the Workplace / Research Experiment : A 14 page research experiment supporting the theory that there are a number of positive benefits derived from playing music in work environments. These benefits, which are physiological, psychological and cognitive, promote increased employee satisfaction, increased understanding of information provided, decreased stress and increased productivity. A study of workers in a hardware distribution center is the central focus of this research document. Bibliography lists 16 sources. Musicwor.wps

Enhancing Communication Between Management & Employees : A 6 page proposal on measures a life insurance company could undertake with very little cost in promoting bottom-up communication, rather than limiting themselves to the more typical top-down pattern. The proposal presents the company’s existing problem as a minor, but growing one, and presents possible low-cost steps in eliminating it. Nearly any business consultant worth his fee consults first with the front-line employees in order to determine the company’s problems: the paper recommends that this insurance company do the same. Bibliography lists 3 sources. Manacomm.wps

Proposal for an Ergonomic Study : A 10 page proposal for funding in research in Ergonomics. Ergonomics has been shown to be highly effective in increasing employee productivity and reducing the costs associated with workman’s comp. claims, medical expenses paid by the company and time lost due to work-related injuries. Additionally, repetitive movement injuries, including those associated with long hours at a keyboard or with the function of a computer mouse, has been said by OSHA to have increased sevenfold during the period between 1983 and 1993. OSHA abandoned ergonomic requirements in 1995, but probably only temporarily. Bibliography lists six sources. Ergo.wps

This paper examines exceptions which have been made and at the current rash of ‘‘wrongful discharge’’ lawsuits which are slowly changing this doctrine as it applies in the U.S. Bibliography lists 11 sources. Atwilemp.rtf

Just-in-Time Inventory as a Burden to Human Resources : 15 pages worth of research on how the Just-in-Time (J.I.T.) inventory system has become a burden to human resources -- and even a threat to workers ! A method borrowed from the Japanese, J.I.T. dictates that materials & merchandise are ordered only as needed and not kept in surplus or stock. J.I.T. is mostly an automated process and it has therefore been known to lessen the need for workers. The writer of this paper feels that J.I.T. damages employee morale and therefore, ultimately hurts productivity. FREE outline, charts, and handouts included. No Bibliography. Justinti.wps

Today’s Hourly Employees : 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. Workers complained for years of the layer upon layer of supervisors who seemed to have no function outside of chart production, but the downsizing of the late 80s and early 90s eliminated most of them. 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. Bibliography lists nearly two dozen sources. Hourly.wps

Worker-Caused Workplace Injuries : A 9 page paper discussing the effects of drugs, alcohol, and to a lesser degree, violence in the workplace as they relate to the incidence of workplace injuries and even death. Employers first began pre-employment drug screening tests because of the lost productivity attributable to the effects of drugs and alcohol on the abilities of those employees using them, but today, it has become more of a quest for safety than for productivity. Violence in the workplace is always a high-profile occurrence, but is less responsible for workplace injuries and fatalities than are the effects of drug- and alcohol-abuse. Simple irresponsibility can be deadly; the effects of drug and alcohol use can be doubly so. Bibliography lists 9 sources. Workinj.wps

Violence In The Workplace : A 10 page research paper on work-related violence and some of its possible causes. The writer discusses the prevalence of this problem, how conflicts arise, and what can be done to lessen the impact of tensions created by poor communication, lack of empathy in the workplace, etc.; Social, psychological, and stress-related theories are applied to the discussion. Bibliography lists approximately 20 sources. Workviol.wps

Is Telecommuting Unfair To Women ? : This 6 page paper describes the phenomenon of tele or "cyber - commuting" and its popularity in modern society. It is argued that tele-commuting has actually intensified the consequences of a male-dominated workplace and that women are afforded the same lesser economic status and lower positions in the corporation they have always had as a result of the advent of computer technology in terms of telecommuting. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Womnwkp2.wps

Is Telecommuting Unfair To Women # 2 ? : 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. Womnwkpl.wps

Virtual Teams : A 5 page study of virtual teams discussing the advantages and disadvantages. Highlights TLR, Inc., a software manual company that makes extensive use of virtual and gives my opinion of their effectiveness.

GM/New United Motors -- Case Study in Human Resource Management : A 5 page analysis of how General Motors (GM) corrected serious human resource problems at its Fremont Plant-- which had to be closed down due to extremely low productivity. A number of factors are examined as causes of employee discontentment including the adverse psychological effects of standardized uniforms, reserved parking for executives, and more. After becoming New United Motors, the company placed a newfound emphasis on the importance of human resources and created reward systems, greater participatory involvement, first-come-first-serve parking, and much more. With its new commitment to trust and union-labor relations, the company soon began to enjoy the successful efforts of committed, self-motivated employees. No Bibliography. Personne.wps

Nordstrom / Employee Problems : A 5 page analysis of the problems Nordstrom encountered with its employees beginning in 1989. This highly successful specialty retail store was perceived as a model for other similar stores, yet they were charged with unfair employment practices and, in fact, found guilty of unfair practices. Their quota system combined with their method of recording sales people's time between "selling" and "nonselling" tasks was such that employees were afraid of claiming all their hours worked because it became more punitive than rewarding for them. This writer discusses why their practices were abusive and what they should do instead. No bibliography. Nordstrom.wps

"Are your Employee's Kids Affecting Your Bottom Line ?" : 12 pages in length. Filled with statistical data and case examples, this paper discusses the role of the changing American family as it relates to the workplace and human resource/management.
