Module 6 Assignment: Alternative Work Arrangements

Guidelines and Rubric Overview: Various alternative work arrangements exist for use in businesses and other types of organizations, including compressed work weeks, flexible work schedules, telecommuting, and job sharing. This assignment focuses on alternative work arrangements in general rather than on a particular arrangement; however, telecommuting does receive a fair amount of attention. Critics of remote workers say the team structure of today’s workplace requires a level of collaboration requiring face-to-face interaction. Some advocates argue that telecommuting narrows the gender pay gap by allowing parents to balance childcare with work duties and generally create a more integrated work and life structure. Directions: To complete this assignment, first watch the video on remote working environments, ​Your Boss Wants You Back in the Office​ (3:11), to understand how this working arrangement is carried out in an organization. This video can be found in ​McGraw-Hill Connect. Once you have finished watching the video, write a two- to three-page paper explaining your perspective on work structures and the impact they can have on culture in terms of organizational commitment and productivity. Specifically, be sure to address the following critical elements:

1. When considering organizational culture, ​which side would you argue holds more weight: a more flexible work environment or a traditional approach with employees working during normal business hours?

2. Recommend ways that organizations can manage culture if there is a mix of remote and on-site employees 3. Considering your preferences and working style, assess how you could stay motivated in a remote environment, and identify the type of

leader that would be best for you in this situation. Reference leadership styles discussed in the textbook. 4. Explain how you think various working arrangements impact o​rganizational commitment, performance, and culture

Guidelines for Submission:​ Your assignment must be submitted as a Microsoft Word document, two to three pages in length, with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman type, 1-inch margins, and resources cited in APA format. Instructor Feedback:​ This activity uses an integrated rubric in Blackboard. Students can view instructor feedback in the Grade Center.
