This paper features a research proposal to ascertain whether significant short-term increases in work-related stress and workload affect employees' attitudes toward change in the workplace, when there are long term benefits to be enjoyed. The paper discusses the research methodologies and methods to be used, including surveys, interviews, and observation of the research subjects. The paper explains that the research aimed to analyze socially meaningful behavior through direct observation of the research subjects in a work setting to understand existing attitudes toward the proposal of changing the ETL load window times.

From the Paper:

"A database consultant was brought in to ascertain whether the problem could be related to how the specific database software is being used. His main proposal was to create windows of time for various users to have access to database thus balancing out resource requirements for the database server with the promise that this would reduce overall maintenance time devoted to the loads, freeing up time for development work. He proposed constricting the load time window from 12 hours to 6 hours per night. ETL team members have until now been required to be on call until 12am and again from 5am according to a weekly roster. The consultant's proposal on the one hand will remove the on call duty till 12am but on the other hand will require a shift in paradigm in terms of ETL techniques and methodology involving a large amount of work in the short term."
