[Solved] 1 Why was it said that the Protestant work ethic had an important impact upon the lives and attitudes to work of employees in industrial Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries?

The question - Answer ALL THREE parts of the following question. They carry equal marks.

1 Why was it said that the Protestant work ethic had an important impact upon the lives and attitudes to work of employees in industrial Britain in the 19th and 20th centuries? Set out ways in which it shaped their behaviours and characters - giving examples. 

2 Set out how Sennett`s views the modern work practice of teamwork. Explain why he sees this as an injury to employees. Does new technology provide greater freedom for workers or more control for management? 

3 Analyse how work and risk in employment have changed over time setting out how Sennett explains the impact of flexibility upon new ways of working. Explain the effects Sennett claims this flexibility has had upon modern employee’s relationship to their work?

R Sennett The Corrosion of Character. The personal consequences of work in the new capitalism. Norton 1999. 

General guidance – In preparing for a re-sit you should go over the entire module and all materials first thinking about how the various elements connected with the questions above. Remember it is an essay AND NOT a report.
In the essay you may bring in other relevant examples beyond the book but must engage with the central arguments in the Sennett book. (Re read the Preface carefully). Central to all of this is the relationship between the employee and the work. Central terms here are - “Protestant work ethic”, “risk”, “flexibility” as well as “job”, “my job”, “work”, “career”, “task”, “project” and “team work” What effect do these differences have upon our attitudes to work and our relationship to work and employment and thus our character and self? Are the new relationships we have with work creating a new self at work for many of us? Think about control, time, pay and loyalty etc. How have the relationship between these and the employees been changed? Are we into the age of the precarious worker – and if so what might that mean? Does new technology provide greater freedom for workers or more control for management? 

Remember that you must reference your work properly and use quotation marks for the words of others giving name and page. Only short quotes are acceptable, long ones will not pick up marks. Use the quote as a point of discussion. Avoid the use of the personal pronoun; do not say “I believe”, the essay is about argument not beliefs or opinions. Keep your sentences simple and keep the subject of the sentence consistent. Try to avoid clumsy phrases such as “...due to the fact...” “in the modern world”.

Insta Research is a very helpful place to buy a resume in the first place. I gave them my details and did not expect that they would come up with such an exclusive design. My personality is professionally enhanced through the resume made by them. I am thankful for the depth of my heart as I would have never approached that level of excellence in my resume. Wish you good luck ahead and again thank you!
