    Work-Life Issues

    In the session-long project, you will be asked to select a reference organization to use as a focus for your application of research ideas. This may be your choice of:

    - Your current workplace
    - A workplace with which you are not affiliated (now) but of which you have good knowledge (could be that of a friend or your Significant Other...)

    For this group of 5 - Please use Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, or JCPenny's as the workplace (chose only one for all five assignments) - Thanks

    Please note that you will not be asked to disclose any intimate or awkward material about any one you choose. Your
    confidentiality will be fully respected; no one but the instructor will see anything you write. If you have a non-traditional organization, you may need to be a bit creative in interpreting the assignments, but I think you'll find it's both stimulating and entertaining to try.

    For the Module 3 component of the Project, please address the following question in a paper:

    - Please evaluate the effectiveness of your organization's work-life polices and practices.
