Seemiller, Corey; Rosch, David M. – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2019

South Koreans work the longest hours in the world's developed countries.

Considering the differences between cultures and the cultural influence on employees and organizations, it is useful to understand the…

Moran, Larry; Roth, Gene – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2013

Baillie, Pat; Gedro, Julie – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2009

In 1986, the United Way authorized a board-level task force on LGBT issues, which looked at health and human care concerns. In 1990, Building Bridges was formed…

Gedro, Julie – New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, 2009
This essay connects part of a life story--mine--with part of a reflection upon practice. Delighted as I was to be invited to write an essay for this journal on the practice of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) workplace training, it became evident to me that in order to fully address LGBT workplace training "practice," it would befit…
