HERE IS THE READINGS FOR THE ASSIGNMENT
question #1 FROM MY BOOK AUTHOR KORY
“WORKPLACES HAVE RITUALS”
PERSONAL RITUALS ARE ROUTINE BEHAVIORS THROUGH WHICH
INDIVIDUALS CONVEY THEIR WORKPLACE INDENTITY. ON the first day
of each fiscal year, a manager might personally greet each arriving
employee as a way of communicating her interest in their well -being.
Social rituals are recurring events that reinforce personal relationships
among workplace members. The custodial staff at a government
agency might meet every other Thursday for happy hour, for example,
in a ritual that allows them to socialize, share information, and affirm
their personal bonds.
Task rituals are repeated activities that enhance people’s abilities to do
their jobs. For example, when greeting a patient at a clinic, a medical
assistant typically performs a series of ritualized tasks, such as asking
about symptoms, current medications, and drug allergies and then
taking the patient’s vital signs. Many rites and rituals reinforce a workplaces current cultural practice. As a workplace culture evolves,
however, its rites and rituals often follow suit. In recent years for
instance, the U.S transportation security administration changed its
task rituals for screening airline passengers. Those changes include
requiring passengers to remove their shoes for X- ray screening and
limiting the types and amounts of liquid that passengers can bring
aboard an airplane.
FOR QUESTION #2 PLEASE PUT THIS DIRECT QUOTE FROM THIS
READING INTO ANSWER TOO. Author kory Floyd MY JOB IS A
“Few organizations today could operate as they do without
communication technology. Email, videoconferencing, text
messaging, telephone and fax machines, and workplace
websites allow individuals to work together without being
together and to communicate with unprecedented efficiency.”
