Employee and Industrial Relations

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 4 component of the Project, please address the following question in a paper:

Analyze the relative strengths and weaknesses of employee and, where relevant, industrial relations in your organization. What can your organization do to improve such relations?
