Description

First, you will need to read chapter 10 AND watch the PBS news piece entitled, 9 to 5 No Longer.

The PBS documentary (aired in April of 2012; this is the most recent video on this subject that I could find) is about an hour in length. It is very informative and may surprise you or be relevant to you, your future, and being able to do this assignment well 🙂

9 to 5: No Longer: A look at the changing workforce and how it impacts women, families, and communities.

*Interesting Yahoo.com published an article affirms what the documentary presents: New Research Reveals Americans, as Both Employers and Consumers, Value Family-Friendly Benefits Over More Costly Perks (Links to an external site.)

AFTER WATCHING THE DOCUMENTARY AND CHAPTER 10, YOU WILL NEED TO CHOOSE A COMPANY TO RESEARCH…

THE RESEARCH:

With what you learned from the documentary and chapter 10, each member of the group will research one company. It can be any company you are interested in or research a company you would like to work for in the future if you have an idea of what you want to do post-college–you may not and that’s ok! You will need to go to their company’s website and review their policies and benefits provided to their employees as it relates to paid time off, sick leave or personal time off (PTO), child care, flexible work schedules, maternity/paternity leave, wellness programs, perks, company awards (e.g., “Top Work Places” or Forbes “Best Places to Work”), and other relevant methods designed to achieve a healthy work-life balance; particularly ones relevant to what chapter 10 presented and the PBS film, “9 to 5: No Longer”.

Therefore this is not so much about presenting company benefits like health insurance and if they offer a 401k but researching the culture and philosophy of the company and how it translates into how they treat their employees through available benefits, policies, and programs. Be sure to learn specifics as all US companies give time off, are required to follow federal laws related to FMLA, offer healthcare, etc. This means you may have to pick up the phone or email someone in HR as their websites will be generic about what they offer. You may also consult a database or a recruiting site like Glassdoor.com in addition to the company’s website. You must research the company’s website–DO NOT rely on Glassdoor or Indeed.com alone for your information.

Please Note: Do NOT copy and paste such benefits and policies directly from a website you are using but present them in your own words. Also, if the company you are researching does not provide a lot of information or you are unable to find the companies benefits and policies, please choose another one. Also, Do NOT simply state that they offer health care and paid time off, it is important to know how much is the employee’s share for health care each month? Or for example, share how long you have to wait to use vacation, or can you accrue more weeks each year the longer you are there.

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS FOR YOU, BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE THESE OPTIONS.
