Executive Summary
In organizations as well as at home, work life balance is becoming a very important issue. As such, the
premise behind our research was to examine whether or not a link exists between organizational culture
and work life balance. In essence, we were looking to see if organizational culture affected work life
balance. Moreover, research on this relationship is limited and it was difficult to find previous literature
on the subject. We considered an UAE based bus assembly firm named Hafilat to test our hypothesis that
work life balance could be affected by organizational culture. Our findings supported the argument that
organizational culture can affect a firm’s provision of work life balance. It was only because of Hafilat’s
empathic and internally centric organization culture, along with their flexible organizational structure that
allowed them to provide work life balance opportunities to their employees. Furthermore, the top-down
approach to work life balance has allowed Hafilat to implement a unique yet effective work life balance
initiative. Their use of an unofficial work life balance policy was unorthodox and proved to be an
interesting solution to combat the rigidity of official policies. As such at an organizational level Hafilat’s
provision of work life balance is good, yet its employees still have a hard time balancing work and life.
Thus an important finding comes to light in that organizations should not only offer work life balance but
also train their employees in how to best make use of such…...

I Stand Here Ironing

...A Victim of Depression In the 1930’s, America was hit with the worst economic depression of the twentieth century. It lasted over a decade and resulted in twenty five percent of the population without jobs. What was once the land of opportunity was now the land of desperation. In “I Stand Here Ironing” a mother looks back on her struggle of raising her daughter Emily, during the great depression. The author, Tillie Olsen, uses the setting of the book to explain the decisions the mother made and the lasting effect it had on her daughter. [ Informative] The story begins with Emily’s mother ironing some clothes for the following day. The reader is witnessing an internal discussion she is having with herself, over her oldest daughter Emily. A teacher from school has called her voicing her concerns about helping Emily who seems to be troubled. Unlike most mothers, this news does come with concern but more of frustrating. Emily’s mother clearly expresses her schedule and does not believe that she could provide much help anyways. “ “Who needs help.”… Even if I came, what good would it do? You think because I am her mother I have a key, or that in some way you could use me as a key? She has lived for nineteen years. There is all that life that has happened outside of me, beyond me.” (Tillie Olsen, 283) To her mother Emily has already passed the point of change and will always be who she is. She realizes that she is a big part of how she grew up but thinks that her decisions...

I Want a Wife

...Who Wouldn't Want a Wife Marriage is one of the basic institutions of society. It has been researched and analyzed for centuries. Most beliefs have developed and changed, but some have remained as the fundamental basis. They are called marriage stereotypes or tenets being declared as true without giving proper reasoning. . In her essay " I Want a Wife", Judy Brady uses a pathos to describe the duties of a wife in the 1970's while writing in a persona of a husband. She explains why she would like to have a wife. Marriage stereotypes are certain ideas which are held true about marriage and roles of a husband and a wife in it. In Genesis 2:18 God states that it is not good that man is to be alone and He makes a helper suitable, or comparable to him. (Bible) A woman takes on the role of a helper when she marries, along with cooking, cleaning, and meeting the families need, according to society. At the beginning of the essay, Brady mentions that she belongs to that classified group of wives, married and with a child. As Brady is ironing clothes she starts thinking "I want a wife" after she thinks of a friend that ended being divorced and was waiting to find a wife. The author then reflects on her life and starts to write in a persona of a husband narrating all the duties that a wife would perform, as if narrating her own personal life. Not only does she want a wife that works but also attends to children, along with keeping up with their doctors appointment and attend to...

Ethics, Who Am I? How Did I Get Here?

...Ethics, Who am I? How did I get here? Diana Maionchi GCU Ethics NURS 437V Professor Jean Gordon September 1, 2012 Ethics, Who am I? How did I get here? We are born with familial genes but whom we are is greatly influenced by our physical surroundings, our parents or family, and our cultural and spiritual beliefs. I have been fortunate enough to be born in the United States, which has provided me with many riches in life to include education. This education provides me with the resources necessary to make sound clinical decisions about my nursing practice. My morality is based on guidelines that have become a natural language and behavior that has instilled how things ought to be and society has accepted. (Purtilo & Doherty, 11/2010, p. 6) I am a practicing Catholic, which deeply influences how I respect life and how I contribute to the community in which I live. Christian values and morals are guiding principles, which help us lead our community and make it strong. As stated in the Bible, “In order for God’s word to take root, believers must do more than merely listen to it. They must act upon it.” (King James, 1:17-18) Simple guiding principles such as these lead us in life, community and our professions. When we provide care we are not only using our clinical skills we are using moral ethical thought to assist us in what is right or wrong for our patients. Has the physician really listened to what the patient is stating their desires are? We are with our...

I Stand Here Ironing

...In Tillie Olson’s, I Stand Here Ironing, a mother is contemplating what type of life she had given to her nineteen year-old daughter, Emily. From the time Emily was born, and especially after her father had left them, Emily’s mother did what she could to provide for her daughter. She even had to go to the extent of sending her away to Emily’s father’s home so she could remain home and make money. The story was heralded by the emerging women's movement of the early 1960s as an example of the difficulty of some women's lives and as a portrayal of the self-doubt many mothers suffer when they know their children are not receiving all the attention they deserve. Also, the Great Depression hit many families hard; a lot of them were splitting up in the hopes to make things more affordable. Although our nation is not going another depression, families are still being split up to ease the financial burden. Sometimes, families go their separate ways to escape their financial problems. The iron was a significant piece of the story. The irons of that time were said to be heavy and not like the ones we use today. The iron represents the effort that the mother put into providing a quality lifestyle for her daughter. The process of ironing reflects the actual lifestyle that Emily and her mother had lived. When “pressing” clothes, one must first sure the iron is hot enough. Since the irons back then probably were not electric, they had to be heated on something that was already hot, like...

Scholarship I Want

...My goals and life plans have always inspired me to do my best. From personal gains to academic and career-related success, I continue to push myself further so that I can always grow as a person. In high school my primary goals included being in the top two of my class and getting into a University. I accomplished both of them! Now that I’m here, my new goals are to try as hard as I can to succeed here as well as I did in high school. My grade point average as well as my lack of participation in student organizations may not reflect how hard I have really been working here, or show that I am a good candidate for this scholarship. I am a hard working first year student. As soon as I arrived here in August, I started work with Intramural Sports facility on campus. I continue to work as a student worker, 4 days a week shift (8pm-10pm). As most of you may know, settling into college isn't as easy for some as it is for others. All of my first semester was spent trying to get used what I had to do vs. what I wanted to do. Let alone adjusting to the work-load as a student working towards a major in MIS. I continue to adjust my schedule to succeed in my classes. Now that I’m starting to get used to what I need to be doing, I am doing very well in my classes! Trust me, working 4 days a week and having a 15 credit hour work load isn't easy. I wouldn't be working if I didn't have to be. I am a student, putting myself through college. I don’t have help from my parents, I pay for things...

I Want a Wife

...Anonymous In the 1970 essay "I Want a Wife", by Judy Brady, The author effectively showed her message, Brady was a women, underappreciated and fed up with it The author wanted to express some resentment in what men expect of women a wife. There is a somewhat humorous tone to the way Brady sends that message in her writing, No person could fit the model of wife she illustrated, Brady shows that she and other wives are somewhat robbed of things, that men take for granted. Brady writes this essay in a first person point of view. She is writing as the man who wants a super wife. She makes a list of the responsibilities that a typical woman from the 1970's would have. According to Brady "If by chance I find more suitable as a wife than the wife I already have, the author states “I want the liberty to replace my current wife with a new one." That is a clear of how Brady feels she and other women are treated unjustly. In the 1970's it was an era that marriages strongly reflected what Brady was trying to say. In that time I think that the essay was calling out, she is a wife and wants to show other wives that they aren't the only ones fed up with the system of marriage. The author states "I belong to that classification of people known as wives. I am a wife. And, not altogether incidentally I am a mother." I think she just wants people to know that she wants to reverse roles. I don't think in today’s society that this is as much an issue as when Brady wrote this essay. While...

Why I Want to Get an Mba

... complex business problems. This is when I start thinking of going back to get my MBA. I felt I can be more effective in solving complex business problems if I go back to school and deepen my understanding of the ever changing business problem issues in the finance and accounting fields. In addition, I want to go back to get a MBA because as someone who was with the Ministry of Finance, I’m concern about how capable our people are in handling our finances to ensures a promising future for our own people. Now, if we’re honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that for too long, we have not always met these economic and social responsibilities – as a government or as a people.  I say this not to lay blame or look backwards, but because it is only by understanding how we arrived at this moment that we would be able to lift ourselves out of this predicament.  In conclusion, I kindly ask for the full financial support of the board of directors to support me in getting my MBA because I want to be a better citizen through education and be someone who can be effective in solving complex business problems that threaten the promising future of our country. Now is the time for the board to act boldly and wisely – to not only revive this economy thru higher education, but to build a new foundation for lasting prosperity by investing in education for our young generation.  Now is the time to jumpstart creativity and problem solving skills within our young generation to grow our......

How I Got Here

... opportunity to accomplish. I traveled to seventeen different countries during this period and was able to help build an elementary school in Thailand, and assist with humanitarian aid in East Timor. There were boring times on ship where I tried to occupy my time with college classes and figuring out what I wanted to major in. There was also exciting times when I was able to get off ship and experience the culture and night life of where I was. I made lifelong friends that I shared many Thanksgiving dinners and sometimes lonely Christmas nights alongside. Those friends became family and most of them still are today. After my seven-year stint overseas, I made it back to the United States in 2003. This was just in time to make the kickoff of the Iraqi war. Deploying twice to different parts of Iraq, I was left faced with my disagreements on our purpose for the war and my reenlistment in the Marine Corps. I was torn between friendship and brotherhood of my fellow Marines and my patriotism for this once great nation and spending the better part of my thirties fighting a war I did not believe had my values or American values at heart. This was a decision that would define my life and for better or worse change it forever. During my deliberations and soul searching, my youngest brother decided to move out to California and into my house. This tipped the scales and gave me the financial freedom and support to make the leap into the civilian world. So I decided to close the chapter...

Why Am I Here

...Why am I Here? The decision to further my education was made long before I completed high school; however, at the time I did not have the resources at my disposal to achieve my life goals. In conversations I had with individuals that I surrounded myself with I realized that furthering my education should be a top priority. The decision was made to join the armed services which had a huge impact on my life. Not only did the rigors of military life provide me with the discipline that I would need to succeed, but it would eventually avail a litany of resources thereby enabling me to pursue select long and short-term goals such as purchasing property and building a home. Over the years I’ve been motivated by an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and by living vicariously through family, friends, and their college experience(s). Along comes the Great Recession; a period in our history that continues to impact every hard working American and the global society. The unfortunate events leading up to the recession and the subsequent implosion of the economy, if you will, forced me to seriously ponder my future. Why now? “Why not?” would be the easiest way to answer that question, but the more obvious answer is the fulfillment of my goals. You see I never gave up on them I just chose another route. I envision a better quality of life following successful completion of my degree program that will not only affect me but family and friends. I presume that more opportunities will present......

Why Am I Here

... besides being a student I am also a mother, homemaker, daughter, and an employee. It’s a working progress but soon I will have it down. I have just asked to have less hours off from work to be able to accomplish my goals. I am very willing to make this commitment to myself. I believe that right now is the perfect time to make big and beautiful changes to my life. For this journey I will have to pack an open mind, lots of patience, resources, positive attitude, concentration (since I am easily distracted), and family and friends willing to help me out in times of need. I believe there are no loose ends that will affect my growth unless I let it get to me and I’m not one to give up that quick. Some of the potential forks that I see that can affect my journey are economic problems. Hoping everything runs smoothly I believe that it won’t happen at least for this semester. So where do I start? Here and now. I want my growth to be significant. I want to break out of the box and stop being so shy. I want not to be afraid to ask questions and to ask why. To be more outgoing and be the one who made it happen. The people I hope support me in my journey are my close family and friends. The reason being is because I know they want to see me thrive. They would like to see me accomplish my goals because they believe and know I can. I just need to remind myself sometimes. My father who has just come in to my life a few years ago is my biggest fan and I don’t want to disappoint him. He......
