Written Assignment 2
Problem statement: Employee turnover has been an issue of concern over the recent past. This is due to the increasing number of part-time working employees as compared to full-time employees. Many researchers have explored the issue of part-time employees and how they impact employee turnovers in organizations. For the literature review of this paper, the research resource Investigating differences in job-related attitudes between full-time and part-time employees in the foodservice industry. International Journal of Contemporary Hospitality Management by Joung et al. will be an essential development ARTICLE (Joung et al. 2018). Joung and his colleagues use this research study to ??? the underlying differences in internal marketing practices, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and intentions of employee turnover between full-time and part-time employees. So YOU WILL COMPARE PART VS FULLTIME WORKERS? Based on the findings from this source, it was established that full-time employees had greater perceptions of internal marketing practices than part-time employees. More so, full-time employees were more committed to the organization and had lesser intentions of leaving than part-time employees. Therefore, this information is essential for building upon my research topic and problem statement. Comment by margaret elgin: PLEASE VERY SPECIFICALLY EXPLAIN WHAT YOU MEAN BY THIS
The research process entails all the details one follows towards getting the right information to build upon the research question (Patten & Newhart, 2017). For this research, the keywords I used in my search were employee turnovers and part-time working and impacts on turnovers. The keywords resulted in various research sources done prior on the same topic. Here are some of the sources I found essential to build on the literature review of this paper.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS LIT REVIEW IS TO SUMMARIZE 5-6 ARTICLES RELATED TO YOUR PROBLEM STUDY
Based on the articles I found after my search, I need to refine my problem statement TO BE more specific and clear. The refined version is, “Employee turnovers have been an issue of concern in most organizations in America. Research studies show that part-time employment is one of the major leading causes of high employee turnover rates in the organization.” < STATE THIS AS A QUESTION. AS STATED NOW IT IS NOT STATED AS A PROBLEM STATEMENT
My initial thoughts on the most suitable data collection methods will focus on both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of the research. Therefore, I will use the mixed-method sample research design for this research. This sample research design uses more than one approach when examining a research problem. Therefore, I will use interviews, surveys, observation, and questionnaires CONSIDER JUST USING QUESTIONAIRESto collect relevant data to support this research. The intended participants in this research will be part-time employees, full-time employees, and organizational managers working in MacDonald’s fast food restaurant. DO YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO DO THIS?
For this research paper, I will explore both the primary and secondary data. Primary data refers to data collected directly from the source, while secondary data is data collected through primary data collection methods and made readily available for use by research at their convenient time< YES BUT THE SECONDARY DATA IS YOUR LIT REVIEW. Interviews, observation, and questionnaires will provide sources for primary data because I will get the reactions and responses of the participants directly from them. For secondary data, I will use survey methods to explore relevant materials available in libraries and other archives.NO. AGAIN THIS IS LIT REVIEW I also intend to use research materials done by other researchers in the past over the same topic. Since I intend to implement both the quantitative and qualitative data collection approach, utilizing both the primary and secondary sources of data collection will be essential to build on the research. THIS IS NOT CORRECT
