CONSULTATION REPORT 3 Executive Summary The research was conducted to serve a reciprocal purpose for the Orange Computers company to help them overcome issues of burnout, turnover, scheduling and favoritism. All the mentioned problem areas are stark reasons for the gradual collapse of the well-established computer company at the hands of their competitors. The overall objective of this project was to find out how the Orange Computers company employees evaluate themselves in term of the company’s policies, what causes their trepidations and how can the issues be mutually resolved. The research in this report included a qualitative study charted by a quantitative survey. The purpose was to achieve a deeper and profound understanding not only of what the employees think, but what new strategies they wished to be inaugurated. The research investigated the following areas: What factors brought about symptoms of emotional exhaustion and diminished personal accomplishment within the employees On what dynamics did the turnover arise and ways in which it can be tackled or minimized. On what basis are some employees preferred over others in terms of privileges or other extraneous factors Lastly, distributing equity among employees in terms of time scheduling Methodology It is anticipated that the study will include both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
