This Dissertation aims to analyse whether part time employees at World Duty Free (WDF) have been the solution to better productivity. WDF is the world’s leading duty free retailer of the British Airport Authority (BAA). The analysis of this project’s research data will examine the better productivity by part time employees against full time employees of the above organisation, and focusing much more on the term ‘better productivity’ to measure the performance.
WDF’s strategy to further implement part time working arrangement has been established to improve employees’ productivity. Further in detail, the project will seek to review past and present literature of the topic so that an adequate conclusion is reached. The key objective of the report is to investigate and demonstrate the implication of part time working on a Western society paying particular attention to UK organisations; such statistics will enable the research to be more efficient.
Consequently, this encourages the idea of the impact of part time working, exploring advantages and disadvantages. The most effective means of measuring productivity is by performance by staff, considering the quality and quantity of work produced during working hours.
