Sa razvojem tehnologije u 21. vijeku, došlo je do promjena u shvatanjima tipičnog radnog mjesta. Ljudi se sve više navikavaju na korišćenje mobilnih uredjaja u obavljanju svakodnevnih poslovnih zadataka, pa fizičko mjesto obavljanja istih sve više gubi na značaju. Fleksibilno radno vrijeme sve više dobija na popularnosti u modernim organizacijama. Postavlja se pitanje da li je isplativo da zaposleni boravi u kancelariji od šest sati ujutru do devet uveče, ako samo tećinu tog vremena provodi radno, dok ostatak koristi za surfovanje različitim društvenim mrežama, pretvarajući se da obavlja poslovne zadatke.
Naravno, i fiksno i fleksibilno radno vrijeme imaju svojih prednosti i nedostataka. Različita radna mjesta imaju različite zahtjeve koji baš uvijek ne odgovaraju potrebama zaposlenih. Radno vrijeme je definitvno jedan od elemenata koje je potrebno razmotriti prilikom donošenja odluke o prihvatanju poslovne ponude. Neki poslodavci nude fleksibilno radno vrijeme, dok se drugi drže strogog rasporeda koji podrazumijeva osmočasovno radno vrijeme a često i rad u dvije ili tri različite smjene. Medjutim, često se iza fleksibilnog rasporeda kriju neredovne isplate zarada i poslodavci koji smatraju da im zaposleni moraju biti na raspolaganju 24 časa dnevno.
Obično, ljudi preferiraju fleksibilno radno vrijeme. Ono im omogućava veću slobodu, kontorlu nad slobodnim vremenom i motiviše ih.

Fleksibilno radno vrijeme
Većina ljudi ne zna tačno šta fleksibilno radno vrijeme podrazumijeva. Fokus je na rezultatima rada, a ne na broju sati provedenih na radnom mjestu. Posao sve više postaje ono što se radi,a ne radno mjesto. Na brojnim forumima koji se bave savjetima u vezi sa zapošljavanjem moze se vidjeti da ovaj termin zbunjuje sve više pojedinaca kada im se zaista i ponudi radno mjesto sa fleksibilnim radnim vremenom. Naravno, većina njih razumije da…...

Flexible Working Hours

...Flexible Working Hours – Is it a win-win situation for both Employees and Organisations Flexible working hours is one of the most employee friendly schemes that have been recently employed by many organisations across the world to become benefit to their employees and a good work life balance. It gives a wide option for an employee to improve the quality of their work and provides a better choice of flexible timings. The increase in globalisation the companies don’t just work from 9 to 5. They also expect from their employees to spend more quality time. It gives an opportunity for the employers to measure the performance based on the final outcome rather than just the time spent by the employee to finish her/her work. This motivates the employees to think out of the box, work smartly to provide solutions. As the key motive for every employee is to retain the best talent in the company and increase the retention, this policy would be a key factor in helping to do the same. The most important fact for this policy to work successfully is that it has to be well structured so that the employee can take the benefit from it without using it for their own good. The shift to flexible working hours with a proper restructuring in the organisation will be a key success in increasing the productivity of the employees to meet the global demand and competition. Though the above point is debatable whether it actually a boon or a bane for the organisation, it has influenced the employees’...

Is It Really Worthwhile to Set Up Standard Working Hours in Hong Kong

...Is it really worthwhile to set up standard working hours in Hong Kong? – Defects of standard working hour system Introduction The standard working hour system is the most commonly implemented working hour system utilized by both developed and developing countries to protect the right of 4employees. As one of the economies in which the employees suffer the longest working hours, Hong Kong is now preparing to introduce the standard working hour system to protect employees. In addition to governments, Mattesini and Quintieri (2006) also consider it as an effective way to lessen the unemployment rate after their study on Italy during the great depression. However, the research of them may be limited. Thus this paper serves to argue that it is unwise for the Hong Kong government to establish the standard working hour system in Hong Kong because of the possible negative influence it may bring, for example, the negative effect on the economy, the increase in production cost, and the ineffectiveness to reduce the unemployment rate. The defects of the standard working hour system Increasing the production cost If standard working hour system is established, thus extra working time beyond the standard working hour is required to produce the same products. These hours could be accomplished by either inflicting overtime work on present workers or hiring additional workers. Either of the two alternatives would create odditional cost for employers. In another aspect, it seems......

Working not exceptional for people with an international career. People who work in the IT sector have to travel a lot as well. Even scientists have several conferences in different countries. All in all, it is clear that an international career comes with both advantages and disadvantages. It allows people to discover new places and thereby get new experiences. Yet, it also demands from the employees to stay away from home and have a certain language capability as well as several other qualities. I personally would reject an international career because I believe that it requires too much of oneself. The major disadvantage, in my opinion, is that you are not able to live at home. However, for people with the ambition of travelling while working at the same time, an international career might be something worth pursuing....

Working Hours – a Test Case for Flexibility

...February 24th 2014 Textbook chapter 13 Case Analysis: WORKING HOURS – A TEST CASE FOR FLEXIBILITY Questions 1- The Financial Times described British lobbying of the EP against the end of the opt-out in the working Time Directive as ‘a strategic defense of the UK’s liberal economic vision for Europe’ (FT, 12 May 2005, p.3) Explain and analyze this statement. How do you interpret this statement in terms of contrasting economic models in Europe and of the debate over labour market flexibility? I agree with the reasoning of having enough productive working hours. For instance the French 35 hours a week is a good example of how a society could be organized with less working time and still be productive. Quantity is not the key but quality is. It doesn’t matter how hard a country works for instance, most of the Chinese in foreign countries with business, work every holiday they don’t close their business. However Chinese economy is one of the most impressive economies now a day because of its fast growing. Conversely French’s economy has been a steady economy for years and they do work a lot less than the Chinese. 2- At the time of writing, agreement on the review of the working time directive has not been reached. Find out whether the review has been concluded. What does the struggle over the directive tell us about attitudes towards labour market flexibility? It tells us that there are different point of views and differences. Not everybody agrees with......

You can research mentoring programs and find what other organizations are doing, even organizations out of the industry. This would occur in your Literature Review, you will write about it and cite the sources. The research information would lead you so two good solutions, once of which you would recommend for implementation. You will have a firm foundation for COAs when based on research. It appears that you need to read through the documents provided for this class and get a view of what you need to do. Plan 1 To implement job shadowing into the interview process as a second interview during peak hours. This would help show the job candidate the high pace environment. Plan 2 The employees have a 2 week training period and then are left alone until 90 days. I think that the review should be done at the 30 day mark to show them where their weak and strong areas. To me 90 days is too long to let a new employee go without being corrected especially in the casino environment where they are handling money and could be losing money by either incorrect handling or holding up the process. After the 90 days if the employee has not met at least 80% of the needed improvements then they should be terminated....

...Bacillus cereus- This bacterium is found in foods like cereals, soil and dust. When you are suffering from food poisoning from this bacterium the common symptoms are pain, diarrhoea and vomiting but subside within about 24 hours. These can be stopped by avoiding having to reheat cooked rice. How can the risk of infection with Bacillus cereus be minimised? Keep prepared foods under refrigeration (5°C) until you are ready to serve. Keep hot foods at a temperature greater than 60°C.Try to avoid preparing foods too far in advance. For heated products that are going to be eaten at a later time ensure that the product is correctly cooled after cooking. The Food Standard Code requires food businesses to cool the food: From 60°C to 21°C within two hours, and From 21°C to 5°C within a further four hours. Cooling cooked food in shallow containers, with good airflow around each container, will help achieve this. Wash hands with hot soapy water and dry thoroughly before preparing food. Keep utensils and kitchen clean. Campylobacter- This is found in raw poultry and meat, milk and animals including pets. Symptoms include diarrhoea which is often bloody. When you suffer from food poisoning due to this bacterium the symptoms are diarrhoea, cramps, a fever and vomiting this could last from 2 to 10 days. This can be stopped by always cooking meat especially poultry, to safe minimum temperatures. Keep raw meat, especially poultry, separate from other food and don’t drink raw or......

Birth Rate vs. Working Hours influenced by some economic cost that Prime Minister Yew overlooks. 2.3. The problem becomes clear in time Singapore is notorious for being one of the hardest working countries in the world. Data affirms this with a study by the Federal Reserve Economic Data organization (FRED) finding that Singaporeans work on average 2287 hours a year (Feenstra 2011). Of the 52 countries participating in this study, the four listed below in Table 1 are the only countries that averaged above 2100 working hours a year. Note that the fertility rate data in the table comes from the CIA. Country | Fertility Rate | Working Hours | Singapore | 0.79 | 2287 | Taiwan | 1.11 | 2144 | Hong Kong | 1.11 | 2344 | South Korea | 1.24 | 2193 | Table 1. Countries with Yearly Working Hours above 2100 These four countries with the most working hours also happen to be four out of the five countries listed by the CIA with the lowest fertility rates in the world. The fifth country not listed is Macau. It does not make this list because it was not included in FRED’s study. To keep the data consistent there will be no crossing of sources for the same variable. Figure 3 below represents the correlation of fertility rate and working hours using the same exact same countries from figure 2. Figure 3. Yearly Working Hours and Total Fertility Rate The above graph clearly displays a strong negative correlation between both variables. The correlation coefficient between all of the......

The Hours

...last hundred years have been characterised by wide scale and extremely rapid change: both Modernism and early 21st century United States were shaped by extraordinary social, cultural and political upheaval. Virginia Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway (1925) and Daldry’s “The Hours” (2002) show overlapping and interwoven ideas that reveal their contextual concerns – decay of faith in authority (such as God, politicians and doctors), changing ideas about gender equality and sexuality, and how our perception of time shapes our lives. Both the novel and film convey these ideas through the appropriate techniques of the Modernist and Post Modern contexts. In Britain during the early 20th Century, and again in the USA late in the century, a declining belief in authority figures and religion was expressed in the work of many creative composers, as well as in Mrs Dalloway. Woolf expresses this shared belief through Septimus, and the conflicting values of Miss Kilman and Mrs Dalloway. In the introduction, the motor car with its unknown entity inside symbolising authority and upper class privilege slowly drives through the crowd of working and middle class. Woolf establishes the tendency of the upper class to float over the middle and working class, and their tendency to not connect with anyone of lower class which implies that they never really gain a clear understanding of those that are not of equal class. This is further explored in the victimization of Septimus, who aspired to become a poet......

Afternoon Hours

...First Year Writing Dr. Holt 11/13/2011   Second Draft Afternoon Hours   Studies have shown the after school hours from three o’clock to six o’clock to be the time that teenagers partake in experimentation with drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and sex. In a controlled adult supervised environment like an after school program, teenagers are most likely to succeed in school and destroy the risk of getting influenced by bad things National support is needed to create these great after school work environments not only to help the at-risk teenagers, but also children who need academic improvement or some other sort of extracurricular activities. After school programs can help students improve their social skills, self-confidence, school attitude, and academic achievement (“Afterschool”). An after school program can be anything from a sport to a place where they can meet with other people to get work done or simply have fun. It simply needs to be something that occupies their afternoon in a positive manner. The problem is that many children in the United States are left to themselves since there are few programs available to them. Certain areas of the country, especially cities with high crime rates such as New York, Detroit, Los Angeles, St. Louis, and many other, lack right support for children’s education in the three to six o’clock time zone. These areas happen to be some of the roughest in the country because of crime related issues, but more importantly there are not enough......

New Slavery System: Working Long Hours for Low Wages

...New Slavery System: Working Long Hours for Low Wages In the modern world, people find a new way for slavery. Employers start to think just their profits and they would prefer open their fabrics in the poor countries. Multinational companies use poor countries’ lack of law. They give low costs to employees and they do not differentiate between the employees’ age or gender. In the poor countries, lots of children and women work in hard conditions with low-cost payment. For example, in developed countries, employees have lots of rights, therefore, employees have to think all of these rights when they hire workers such as doing insurances, paying high-cost wages. However, in poor countries, employers use the lack of law and they give money to just meet their daily needs. Workers do not have any insurance or rights. Also, they do not say anything about this situation because they really need these jobs. The new system, in my opinion, is a new slavery system, as one distinct is people have a chance to turn their homes when they finish all works and they receive an insufficient amount of money. According to me, it is not ethical for multinationals to operate just on the basis of where they can obtain low-cost resources because every individual around the world have same rights, so, every part of the world, people should have same conditions and rights when they work for any company. In this scenario, women and children harmed this situation because they have to do heavy works......

The Story of an Hour

...“The Story of an Hour” Kate Chopin (1894) Knowing that Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble, great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news of her husband's death. It was her sister Josephine who told her, in broken sentences; veiled hints that revealed in half concealing. Her husband's friend Richards was there, too, near her. It was he who had been in the newspaper office when intelligence of the railroad disaster was received, with Brently Mallard's name leading the list of "killed." He had only taken the time to assure himself of its truth by a second telegram, and had hastened to forestall any less careful, less tender friend in bearing the sad message. She did not hear the story as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance. She wept at once, with sudden, wild abandonment, in her sister's arms. When the storm of grief had spent itself she went away to her room alone. She would have no one follow her. There stood, facing the open window, a comfortable, roomy armchair. Into this she sank, pressed down by a physical exhaustion that haunted her body and seemed to reach into her soul. She could see in the open square before her house the tops of trees that were all aquiver with the new spring life. The delicious breath of rain was in the air. In the street below a peddler was crying his wares. The notes of a distant song which someone was singing reached her faintly, and countless sparrows were......
