Business Management - Human resource management: workplace employment
conditions

Workplace employment conditions

Management must follow social trends and demands and provide for
flexibility and adaptability with respect to how their employees actually
work and are treated by management. Employees must be able to respond to
training needs and to become multi-skilled and cross-skilled. They must be
able to work in teams and management must be able to accommodate employees
in revised work schedules. Management must also accommodate the changing
nature of employees' desires especially with respect to how long and how
often they work. Work schedules must take into account the growing number
of employees who want to work part-time, work fewer days in a full 35-40
hour working week, share jobs, and work under flexible hour arrangements
including shift work and telecommuting. Management must also assess the
costs and benefits to the organisation of outsourcing certain work tasks.
