Stress as a component to workplace performance.
The CEO of PRU is a confessed workaholic. In a recent HR interview with Chinn, he lays outs his personal conflict of demanding employees to work long hours as he does. He also is conflicted with the need to be open for business all the time due to its international markets. He is aware that his own Chinese cultural heritage influences his work practices. In China, the issue of personal time is not a concern. Workers do what is expected of them. Chinn knows this is not true in many western companies and especially in the southern states of America. As the newest set of management employees, President Daniel Chinn wants you to examine this issue and make recommendations on how to deal with the conflicting cultural expectations. What demands should PRU place upon its employees?
