QSO-510 Professor: A. Duhon 6-2 Scenario Analysis (Vacation Time) The vice-president of administration at your company wonders whether employees are taking adequate amounts of vacation time. Employee burnout is a concern. Research suggests that an employee taking less than 1.4 weeks of vacation annually is very likely to experience burnout. You are asked to analyze the employee vacation data and conduct a hypothesis test with the following results: t = 2.93 p = 0.0084 1. What factors should the vice-president consider in determining the presence of employee burnout? In determining if there is in fact employee burnout, I think the primary factor that should be considered is a measure of work performance or output. The performance or output of the employees who have taken more than 1.4 weeks of vacation time should be compared to those who have taken less than 1.4 weeks of vacation. This will be an indication of the presence of employee burnout in the group of employees who took less than 1.4 weeks of vacation annually.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
