Evidence-based decision making | SOC 402 Contemporary Social Problems & the Workplace | Ashford University

As you have read in the text, sociologists analyze data gathered in society and within organizations to understand more about the social problems that can occur within society related to organizations (e.g., globalization, environmental issues, etc.). Analyzing data also helps sociologists understand how social problems can occur within organizations in relation to specific groups (e.g., women, older workers, etc.). Gathering and analyzing data to understand these workplace issues is not only the job of sociologists as part of research projects, but also the job of human resources (HR) practitioners within organizations. Human resource practitioners often perform research about their workforce to understand how workers feel about their environment or their experiences of work.
