Organizations are changing...
from local businesses to global competitors. Technology has increased communication
and has provided us the opportunity for the any-where, any-time office. Competition has reduced profit margins. Mergers and
acquisitions have changed the structure of work and changed the psychological contract between employees and employers. Customers
have increased their expectations. The nature of work has changed from production to information, knowledge and service. Yet
work is fundamentally still structured based on many of the same assumptions used at the beginning of the industrial revolution
when jobs were mostly assembly line manufacturing and workers were less educated and lived in extended family structures.
We are living in the technology revolution and many of us are still using principles, management techniques and work
processes created for the industrial revolution.
People are changing...
Today only seven percent of the U.S. population comes from a traditional
family structure with a working father and a stay at home mother who cares for the children full time. Most people do not
live near their retired relatives and thus do not have low cost, convenient day care. Today's work force is comprised of people
who come from dual career and blended families, who are single parents, who are caring for elders as well as children. Staff
who have no children are no longer willing to carry the burden of weekend and holiday overtime. Employees, no longer expect
life time employment so their loyalties have changed. The values of our work force are changing. In survey after survey, work-life
harmony issues emerge as key concerns that drive employees to make choices about who they will work for and what type of jobs
they will do.
Our work-life services include:
- Developing and administering needs assessment surveys;
