Professional Adaptation of New Employees to the Organization

Abstract

The article discusses the problem of occupational adaptation, which is a significant motivator for keeping a job. The concern of employers that the subordinates are best suited to the work they perform is important for the efficient and effective operation of the entire organization. When an employee has a sense of adaptation to the tasks and requirements of the work imposed on him, he achieves a positive state of well-being, thus striving to stay in the company for as long as possible. Efforts of the organization to ensure the required quality of work already at the stage of introduction into the organization translate into benefits from the skills and competencies of the new employee. The aim of the article is to present selected issues related to the professional adaptation of newly hired employees in the workplace. In the theoretical part, the essence and scope of professional adaptation of newly hired employees were pointed out and the factors conditioning the achievement of adaptation to the organization were analyzed. The empirical part discusses adaptation tools, which organizations use to provide employees with support in the process of introduction to work. It also examines the level of their effectiveness in adapting to work in selected aspects of the organization’s functioning.

The Ergonomic Assessment of Cycle Rickshaw Operators Using Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (Rula) Tool and Rapid Entire Body Assessment (Reba) Tool

Abstract

In India, the population of about eight lacks people who are engaged in riding cycle rickshaw as an occupation. It is an unorganized sector of India. A cycle rickshaw is a modified form of bicycle which is the cheapest mode of transportation for carrying passengers, luggage and goods. Many tasks connected with this occupation are associated with strenuous body postures, and some body movements typical for this job which, when combined with a heavy load, result in frequent work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs).Working postures were analyzed by means of Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) tool and Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA) tool in order to determine the area of discomfort. The outcome of the research is beneficial for manufactures of cycle rickshaws and similar products well as users of such products, including cycle rickshaw operators. Some suggestions were given to have increase the comfort and safety level.

The Bootstrap Method As A Tool To Improve The Design Of Experiments

Abstract

The paper considers the use of the bootstrap method to improve the determination of confidence intervals identified by the DOE (design of experiment) procedure. Two different approaches have been used: one that is appropriate for factorial designs and the other one relevant to the methodology of the response surface. Both approaches were tested on the real experiment datasets and compared with the results obtained from the classical statistical expressions based on well-known asymptotic formulas derived from the t distribution.
