Measures to limit the effect of the last recession have resulted in the rendering of the psychological contract (“Old Deal”) useless. Thus, it has given rise to a new contact “New Deal” as well as the introduction of the government initiative of Continuing Education and Training (CET) in Singapore. Yet, with the implementation of CET whose main intention is to facilitate upgrading of relevant skills to better serve of needs of market and their company (WDA, Mind Reskill, 2011), companies are facing the backlash of CET-high turnover.

As a possible solution, the author claims that by leveraging 3 key perspectives, companies are able to minimize high turnover, a consequence caused by CET.

There are 3 main theoretical perspectives mentioned in the report.
Firstly, Psychological Contract (PC). It was mentioned that the changing landscape for job hiring gave rise to some psychological incongruence. Encountering psychological incongruence is said to lead to a decrease in Organizational Commitment. In addition, with the CET, improvement of skill results in mobility and henceforth causes instability.
Secondly, Organizational Commitment (OC). In this report, it was mentioned that encounters of psychological incongruence, will led to a decrease in affective and normative commitment. Coupled with the implementation of CET, continuance commitment will too be affected, causing high turnover.
If the organization is viewed in a positive manner by the employees, then Organizational Identity (OI) is said to be positively related to OC. A positive OI will lead to increase citizenship behavior which will in-turn result in increased commitment. With psychological incongruence, self-identity within the organization is said to diminish which will result in a decrease in normative commitment.

Generally, the reliability of the articles seems high with a large percentage of…...

...SNMP capable and this can include computers, printers, routers, servers, gateways and many more using agents on the target systems. The agents report information back to the management systems by the use of “traps” which capture snapshot data of the system. This trap information could be system errors, resource information, or other information. The SNMPv2 standard includes enhancements to the SNMPv1 SMI-specific data types, such as including bit strings, network addresses, and counters. In SNMPv3 security was addressed. Because all of the trap information sent was in clear text, any monitoring information being sent and collected for operational purposes could also be pulled off the wire by a malicious person SIP – Stands for Session Initiation Protocol and is a signaling protocol, widely used for controlling multimedia communication sessions such as voice and video calls over Internet Protocol (IP).

African Male Initiation School

...Name: Lesego Molemogi Class: General Sociology Teacher: MALE INITIATION PRACTICE When young boys reached puberty they were sent to an initiation school for boys that marked the passage from boyhood to manhood. For one to be regarded as a man, earn respect and the privileges in the affairs of the society he had to go for this infamous rite. Youngman are taught life skills and how to respect other people, but there is still more to it though, traditional circumcision. I remember back in the days during my social studies class when my teacher took us through the history of this infamous activity, about how passionate people were with this activity. This is an initiation rite that started back in 1902 and was later abandoned until the 1970s till the last were performed in 1990. It was back again in 2009 early May. This transition of reviving this initiation rite was caused by the current social problems and challenges brought by globalization. This activity was done only by one of the most popular tribe in Botswana, and when you talk about that group this initiation rite click really quick into your head. The Bakgatla as they are known respects this event and the whole village will come together to witness this cultural activity. People from all corners of the Botswana are free to attend and witness. Last year it really attracted so many people that it was even aired on television. The traditional paramount chief would gather his people at the kgotla (community council or......

...médical, cette partie de la médecine traite les causes des maladies et non les effets ( exemple des médecines alternatives tel que la chromothérapie ou la sonothérapie, couleur et son ). En biologie on utilise ce terme pour désigner la genèse d’un organe ou fonction d’un être vivant, et en philosophie cela concerne l’ensemble des causes d’un phénomène. En tout domaine, on retrouve cet aspect de genèse, la cause première. Pour illustrer ce terme, Rudyard Kipling est un excellent exemple. Il est d’ailleurs l’auteur du livre de la jungle qui reprend plusieurs concepts de la mythologie Hindouiste qui était une source d’inspiration pour lui. Mais il est aussi l’auteur de « Just So Story », une collection qui regroupe plusieurs petits contes pour enfant expliquant les causes de certains phénomènes ou situation. Je vais citer l’exemple de l’éléphant, « Pourquoi les éléphants ont-ils une longue trompe ? ». C’est l’histoire d’un petit éléphant très curieux, à force de curiosité et persévérance sa trompe évolue et grandit, ce qui lui ouvre la porte à de nombreuses possibilités ( voir annexe ) Dans cet exemple reprenant le principe de l’étiologie, Rudyard Kipling crée une histoire ancré dans le monde réel, car il reprend un fait existant et à travers une histoire, une aventure explique un phénomène. Ce mythe de l’éléphant symbolise la curiosité, la naïveté ,la persévérance, la découverte, l’ouverture d’esprit mais aussi dénonce le manque d’ouverture d’esprit et une sorte de......

Initiation À La Culture Gastronomique

...Introduction La cuisine française a véritablement commencé au Moyen Age. La révolution Française posera les véritablement fondements de la cuisine actuelle avec la naissance de la restauration. L’apogée de la « grande cuisine » se fait au XIXème siècle. De tous temps, le raffinement de la table a été lié au degré de civilisation des peuples. Les Mésopotamiens, les Egyptiens, les Grecs, les Romains sont à l’origine de la culture française et de nos habitudes culinaires. La gastronomie est un témoignage historique incontestable de notre mode de vie et de l’évolution de nos mœurs. Depuis 2010, au même titre que le Mont-Saint-Michel ou le château de Versailles, le «repas gastronomique des Français» appartient désormais au patrimoine de l'Humanité. Le comité intergouvernemental de l'Unesco réuni à Nairobi (Kenya) a statué favorablement sur la demande en ce sens déposée par la France. La Préhistoire (avant -2000) - La découverture du feu (exemple : les hommes mettaient des pierres dans le feu pour qu’elles soient brulantes, les retiraient puis les aliments étaient placés sur des outres remplies d’eau sur les pierres chauffés à blanc pour les cuire). Le feu est devenu le centre du repas : les repas deviennent en commun. Il permet aussi de conserver. Durant la préhistoire début de l’élevage et de la culture avec des techniques rudimentaires.

Critique of the Research Article: Perspectives of Hospital-Based Nurses on Breastfeeding Initiation Best Practices

...Running head: CRITIQUE OF THE RESEARCH ARTICLE: PERSPECTIVES OF Critique of the Research Article: Perspectives of Hospital-Based Nurses on Breastfeeding Initiation Best Practices Kimberly Baird Grand Canyon University Intro. To Nursing Research NRS-433V April 21, 2011 Critique of the Research Article: Perspectives of Hospital-Based Nurses on Breastfeeding Initiation Best Practices The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the differences in breastfeeding knowledge and the implementation of breastfeeding by registered nurses in the postpartum units and the hospital policies, both formal and informal, related to the implementation and support of breastfeeding. Human milk is accepted as the ideal food source for infants for the first 6 months of life. Breastfeeding is then encouraged as a supplement to other foods until the child is 12 months of age and beyond. Both The Academy of Pediatrics and the International Lactation Consultant Association support these recommendations. CDC statistics report that in 2006 73.9% of women breastfed in the early postpartum period. This drops to 33.1% of those that are exclusively breastfeeding at 3 months of age and then drops again to 13.6% exclusively breastfeeding at 6 months. The Healthy People 2010 goals are 75% of women initiating breastfeeding in the early postpartum period and retaining 60% of those that continue to breastfeed at 3 months and 25% continuing until 6 months. These statistics fall short of those......

Critical Reasoning

...consideration socio-political reasons, it is described tobacco industry and public health research on the American Legacy Foundation’s ‘‘truth’’ campaign, a key example of effective use of negative advertising in the service of public health. The tobacco industry described that the most effective advertisements run by Legacy Foundations “truth’’ campaign have been negative advertisements. Though the tobacco industry’s own study suggested that these negative ads acknowledged and effectively branded the cigarette as a harmful consumer product rather than focusing only on tobacco companies, some people accused Legacy of defaming it. Public health researchers have confirmed the effectiveness of the ‘‘truth’’ campaign in reducing smoking initiation. Research on political advocacy indicating the value of negative advertising has been only used rarely in the development of public health media campaigns, but negative advertising can easily communicate certain public health messages and assist to resist corporate disease promotion. Negative advertisements created by ‘‘truth’’ were one of the most notable features of the campaign. One advertisement, titled ‘Body Bags’, became symbolic of engagement of the tobacco industry and was revealed to be the most effective of the ‘‘truth’’ ads. In it, a group of teenagers pulled up outside the Philip Morris corporate headquarters in New York City and piled 1200 body bags onto the footway in front of the building, shouting into a megaphone......

L’enseignement supérieur français offre des formations sans cesse enrichissantes et satisfaisantes dans tous les domaines d’études et délivre des diplômes reconnus au niveau international et qui facilitent l’insertion dans la vie professionnelle.

Conclusión. 1.Introduction Il était observé par Glissant que si la Martinique veut vraiment être libre et progresser, elle devrait avoir une volonté de décérébration du système pour laisser le model de progrès français bien que cela signifie une régression du matériel. Ce sujet est réellement important pour l’histoire en général parce que n’est pas une situation que vivre la Martinique avec la France, mais la société est toujours en train de placer son développement aux mains des pais « développés », en suivant le model économique qu’ils les imposent. Ce document a le début de contribuer a la réflexion des pays tiers-mondistes et son désir de progresser sas tenir en compte les conséquences de cet auto esclavage.

Your Ceo Has Asked You to Do Some High-Level Planning During Your Project Initiation. What Are Some of the Things That the Project Manager Should Provide to Support This Request? Do You Consider This a Wise Request

...Your CEO has asked you to do some high-level planning during your project initiation. What are some of the things that the project manager should provide to support this request? Do you consider this a wise request considering you are just initiating your project? Why or Why not? By Nana Kwabena Agyemang One of the major sources of project failure is a lack of a well-defined and formalized project initiation process which includes poor planning and poor quality requirements specification. As matter of fact, poor project planning is really common in most project initiations. Right from the project initiation, if the initial stages contains any issues it can carry on throughout the project life-cycle and the results of this is clear, project failure. This is why as a PM, you should be able to involve or bring together each and every stakeholder during project initiation to help curb out any doubts and resolve any issue before the start of the project. This initiation stage is very important because it is vital for the team who will deliver the product, for those who’s going to be the final user of the product, and for the stakeholders in the project to come into agreement on the project initiation. The PM should define the project initiation stage to include the following: * Creation of a Product Description Statement: This should be a high-level and informal, statement that will help describe the very nature or characteristics of the product or process that’s going to...

The Role of Motivation in Wellness Coaching and Weight Loss

...subsequent consequences are varied (Ryan & Deci, 2000). Relevant motivational factors that influence change and subsequent action includethe following: need, interest or desire, beliefs, expectations, and initiation (Nemec, Swarbrick, & Merlo, 2015). Needs are considered from the perspective of the individual making a behavioral change. Need involves external pressure to change while interest or desire, in contrast, is an internal pressure to change (Nemec, Swarbrick, & Merlo, 2015). These factors correlate with each other in that when there is a high need plus low desire or a low need plus a high desire, the motivation to act is present (Nemec, Swarbrick, & Merlo, 2015). If there is a low need plus a low desire, the individual likely will not take action and start to change (Nemec, Swarbrick, & Merlo, 2015). Next, in order to change a behavior, more often than not, a belief must change first. The individual must also believe that the new behavior will accomplish what the person wants, be congruent with what the person thinks he should do (values), and the belief that the person can actually change in his given set of circumstances (Nemec, Swarbrick, & Merlo, 2015). Fourth, expectations serve as the “pros and cons” of change and lastly, initiation of action can be well thought out and pre-planned or sudden, spontaneous, and seemingly reckless (Nemec, Swarbrick, & Merlo, 2015). Together, these factors influence a person’s motivation or......

Educational Initiation Into Culture in Post Modernity

...American Studies BA 3rd year Course title: American Educational System Student name: Mircea Stănciucu Educational initiation into culture in post modernity A. Educational initiation into culture Initiation in culture and the acquisition of cultural tools are the most stringent requirements that school should meet now and always. Knowing to cultivate oneself, learning how to carefully use power to judge, to reason, to distinguish the false from the truth, good from evil, ugly from beauty, are qualities that have formed through schooling and this need increases itself as soon as it is stimulated. At some point, one does not even require guardianship regarding culturalization. Cultural plurality, once internalized, awakens and opens new possibilities. Thus, culture gives birth to culture. School should potentiate and develop in students the capacity for adaptability and understanding not only in terms of knowledge, but also that of true culture, knowing how to use what one knows to behave intelligently and lead a remorseless existence. Conditions of modern life require that every human has to learn every day; school is where learning starts and this learning that the child receives should provide what is necessary so that, in the future, self-improvement would be employed: education and teaching are thus an initiation, an opening. A series of acquisitions of cultural goods, by their presence, does not guarantee empowerment of individuals. A genuine culture is......
