3.1 – Which type of organizational commitment (affective, continuance or normative) do you think is most important to the majority of employees? Which do I think is most important to me?
3.3 – Consider times when you’ve reacted to a negative with exit, voice, loyalty or neglect. What was it about the situation that caused you to respond the way you did? Do you usually respond to negative events in the same way, or does your response vary across the four options? Please share a specific example (names may be changed) and why you chose one of the four reactions (and how that manifested).
3.5 – Can you think of reasons the increased diversity of the workforce might actually increase organizational commitment? Why? Which of the three types of commitment might explain that sort of result?
3.6 – Studies suggest that decades of downsizing have lowered organizational commitment levels. Can you think of a way that an organization can conduct layoffs without harming the commitment of the survivors? How?

compare the proportions of the sentences that are actually served by both men and women. Studies clearly show that women serve less of their prison sentence in comparison to men; 48 per cent versus 53 per cent on average (Poole, 2012). This, once again, prompts us to consider the important question of whether this is fair or if it is a direct result of gender discrimination against men in the Criminal Justice System. The key issue concerning parole is the behaviour of the offender whilst they are serving their custodial sentence. Many people assume that women are more likely to behave better than male prisoners, however various studies have implied otherwise. According to the Ministry of Justice in 2012, women in prison are subject to 20-50 per cent more prison disciplinary actions than males, per 100 prisoners, which surprisingly included female prisoners being disciplined for violent acts more frequently than men. This suggests a preferential treatment by parole boards of women and once again implies a massive gender discrimination in the Criminal Justice System against men. To summarise this section, from the data that is shown above, we can conclude that men are more likely to be awarded custodial sentences than females for the committing the same crime, men receive longer sentences than women for the same category of crime and men serve 10% more of their sentence than female prisoners, on average, for no obvious reason (Ministry of Justice, 2012). Conclusion The disparity in the treatment of men and women within the Criminal Justice System has ultimately led me to an important question. Can these gender-based differences be warranted? Many people would argue that because there are existing fundamental differences between men and women, treating both sexes in the same way may actually prove to be problematic and controversial, as it has the potential to further disadvantage a group that is already disadvantaged. For instance, it is argued that females are more vulnerable in society and more likely than ma>GET ANSWER
