Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to put together a short report on religion in the workplace. It depends on the perspective you want to use sociologically speaking. I would suggest using sociological perspectives coupled with managerial theories that are applicable too. I suggest using this simple outline:

2. Article 1 - 100 words
3. Article 2 - 100 words

This outline should yield around 550 words which should cover what you need. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. You can also use the listed resources to further explore the topic. All the best with your studies.
