Could work be more satisfying, participatory, and challenging? Is work reform possible? I believe the answer is yes to both questions, however to achieve those goals there has to be collaboration from all parties involved. This essay will depict the parties that are involved in the process, their roles and responsibilities, and the reasons why Canadian labour is in need of reform.

First of all, let’s look at the reasons why our current labour market is in need of reform. To do this we must look at the reasons exemplified from both sides of the equation; the employer side and the employee side. Employees have two important desires; to possess both extrinsic and intrinsic rewards. Extrinsic rewards can be easily identified such as, “adequate pay, opportunities for advancement, and access to training”. Intrinsic rewards are the psychological rewards such as “autonomy, challenge, and control”. (pg. 132 commentary) Workers want to know they have some control over the amount of work performed daily; they want to be able to complete it without feeling like someone is watching their every move; and they want to know that their workplace is safe from both physical and mental harm.

The employer’s motives for work reform are more predictable. One could almost label them as extrinsic because their goals are concerned with money. They wish to reduce operating costs, increase productivity and efficiency and obtain flexibility from their staff. If these results are achieved overall their business costs will reduce in the long term.

Yes it can, but in order to achieve it a change needs to be initiated within the organization which is achieved by starting at the top of the company. The president and vice presidents need to start the change by talking to it, acting to it, and directing their first level managers to accept it, and motivate it.…...

...UNIT 1 INTRODUCTION CONCEPT The term ‘Industrial Relations’ comprises of two terms: ‘Industry’ and ‘Relations’. “Industry” refers to “any productive activity in which an individual (or a group of individuals) is (are) engaged”. By “relations” we mean “the relationships that exist within the industry between the employer and his workmen.” | | | | The term industrial relations explain the relationship between employees and management which stem directly or indirectly from union-employer relationship. Industrial relations are the relationships between employees and employers within the organizational settings. The field of industrial relations looks at the relationship between management and workers, particularly groups of workers represented by a union. Industrial relations are basically the interactions between employers, employees and the government, and the institutions and associations through which such interactions are mediated. The term industrial relations have a broad as well as a narrow outlook.

Market Analysis The repositionable notes market is made up of paper or tabs with adhesive, which allows the product to be stuck on surfaces and moved, without leaving residue. They are also known as ‘sticky notes’ and the idea was first conceived by 3M innovators. Post-it, the original inventor of ‘sticky notes’ have seen other competitors entering the market, yet having little success in toppling Post-it as the market leader. This is especially so in Singapore, where most of the brands shy away from competing head-on with Post-it, by differentiating their products. 1.1 Market Environment 1.1.1 Technology The ease of accessing wireless networks via Wireless@SG, since its introduction in 2006, has led to a surge in consumers switching to 3G phones. The implications of this on the repositionable notes market is that gadgets like phones are increasingly being used as a substitute in place of sticky notes, in reminding people of certain events or things. Instead of physically placing a post-it on the desk, people choose to set reminders on their phones, with alarms. People also choose to send short......

Third, Pixar’s egalitarian, no-nonsense, perfectionist culture is another reason the animation studio’s staff work effectively. The company gives power to its production teams rather than to senior executives, but these teams are also ruthless at writing and rendering scenes several times until they look right. All employees, from entry-level new-comer to the CEO, are encouraged to be creative and offer candid feedback about work progress. Production teams have regular “sweatbox” sessions to discuss problems openly. Even the most successful films undergo a post-mortem” to discover how they could have been improved. “Our job is to address problems even when we’re successful,” explains Pixar/Disney Animation president Ed Catmull, whose leadership has been identified as the foundation of Pixar’s unique culture.

Has Canada Become a Post Industrial Society

...Assignment One Sociology 321 Zahra Nazir Has Canada become a post-industrial society? * What does “post-industrialism” mean and what are the main characteristics of “industrial” and “postindustrial” societies? * Using the concepts of “industrial” and “postindustrial” societies: How has work changed in Canada over time? (pg20,24) Is “postindustrial” a proper description for Canadian society today? Bell argued that postindustrial societies would engage most workers in the production and dissemination of knowledge, rather than in goods produc- tion as in industrial capitalism. While industrialization had brought increased productivity and higher living standards, postindustrial society would usher in an era of reduced concentration of power Why the optimism in the early theories of postindustrial society? These explanations of social and economic change were developed in the decades following World War II, a time of significant economic growth in North America.16 White-collar occupational opportunities were increasing, edu- cational institutions were expanding, and the overall standard of living was rising. Hence the optimistic tone of the social theories being developed In fact, as Canada industrialized, the government heavily subsidized the construction of railways in order to promote economic development. Like other advanced capitalist societies, Canada has become a service-dominated economy. The informa- tion technology revolution is having a......

Post Industrial Society Grint Walby

...Service Sector and the Knowledge Economy” in Grint, K and Nixon, D., The Sociology of Work 4th Edition, Cambridge: Polity. Walby, S. (2011) “Is the Knowledge Society Gendered?”, Gender, Work and Organization, 18(1), 1 – 29. In this short treatise this author will initially discuss the research of Grint and Nixon (2015) followed by Walby (2011). This author will conclude the treatise with a brief evaluation of the theories presented. Grint and Nixon’s (2015) reading investigates the concept of the Post Industrial Society as espoused by Bell (1973) and explores its evolution through the end of the 20th Century and through the first decade of the 21st Century. In doing so it also highlights the decline in the active male workforce and the rise in the active female workforce. Bell’s argument that a post-industrial work environment would be characterised by knowledge-intensive work (the Knowledge Society) is counteracted by Braverman’s (1974) argument that a form of post-industrial Taylorism would serve to de-skill society rather than enhance knowledge. Braverman’s arguments are supported by Kumar (2005) who argues that information technology is more likely to proletarianize than professionalize, reducing knowledge and the level of control workers have over their work. Kumar (2005) cites Carlo de Benedetti, then the MD of Olivetti, who said “information technology is basically a technology of coordination and control of the labour force, the white collar workers”......

Canada as a Post-Industrial Country

...Canada as a Post-Industrial Country Canada’s practices of work and work values have been evolving throughout history. From the early days when agriculture dominated the economy, to the gradual transition into manufacturing and processing, we can see that Canada’s economy is always changing. More recently, we are seeing a similar shift from manufacturing to the service sector of the economy. This paper provides an analysis of Canadian society and whether we can be considered a post-industrial country. A society tends to be classified according to the degree to which different groups within that society have unequal access to rewards such as resources, status, or power. Although humans have established many types of societies over time, I will focus on defining two main categories including industrial and post-industrial society. Industrial societies are driven by the use of machines and factories to enable mass production. They are generally characterized by the use of external energy sources to increase the rate and scale of production. Industrialization brought about changes in almost every aspect of society. As factories became the center of work, urbanization became desirable and large cities emerged. Wage work and job specialization allowed more efficient means to manufacture goods, but also lead to a more complex division of labour. Post-industrial societies are based on information, knowledge, and the selling of services. This society develops at a stage when......
