  • Purpose: There are two primary purposes of this study. The first of which is to examine and validate the relationship between the satisfaction with flexible work arrangement and(individual) performance in the public sector. The second of which is to quantitatively validate the moderating effect of organizational commitment on the relationship between the satisfaction with flexible work arrangement and performance. Recognizing that studies in Korea on the flexible work arrangement, especially most of the quantitative studies have been focused on the studies to validate the effect of the flexible work arrangement, and given the inadequacy of the studies statistically validating the relationship with the satisfaction with flexible work arrangement, the goal lies with contributing to the development of the flexible work arrangement related studies. Method: To validate the hypothesis of this study, the data of the 2020 Public Service Life Survey provided by the Korea Institute of Public Administration was utilized. The target of this study was civil servants serving at general(administrative/technical/managemental) duties affiliated with central administrative agencies and self governing governments. Variables for this study include performance(dependent variable), satisfaction with flexible work arrangement(independent variable), organizational commitment(control variable), gender, age, marital status, educational background, and position(control variable), etc. To validate the hypothesis, a statistical analysis was performed to validate the moderating effect by using the regression analysis. Results: The key contents of the results of the statistical analysis of this study are as follows. First, the more the civil servant perceived greater satisfaction with the flexible work arrangement, the higher the individual's perceived performance level. Second, it was confirmed that the organizational commitment variable has had the effect of partially adjusting the positive relationship between the satisfaction with flexible work arrangement and performance. In conclusion, both the first and second hypotheses used in this study were statistically verified. In connection with the control variables, the perceived(individual) performance of the older civil servant also turned out to be higher, and it was analyzed that the perceived performance of the unmarried civil servants was higher than that of the married. Furthermore, it turned out that there is a positive relationship of influence between the level of education and performance. Conclusion: This study, which presented a positive relationship of influence through the quantitative analysis between the satisfaction with flexible work arrangement and performance, is determined to be capable of making contribution to the development of domestic flexible work arrangement related studies to date. Furthermore, in order to further expand the positive relationship between the satisfaction with flexible work arrangement and performance, it was confirmed through the validation of the hypothesis of this study that the extent of organizational commitment of the members is crucial.

  • Purpose: Currently, the number of single person households worldwide is increasing. Lifestyle-related diseases are increasing due to changes in consumption patterns, excessive intake of fat and cholesterol, and increased intake of processed foods. Therefore, modern people have increased their interest in health, and as they are more interested in vegetarian diets and exercise, the purchase and intake of protein useful for health is increasing. Therefore, this study aims to investigate the reasons for purchasing plant protein, expenditure cost, purchase type, etc. for consumers who have purchased plant-based protein, and to provide basic data when developing plant-based protein products. Method: From April 1 to 20, 2021, FGI(Focus Group Interview) was conducted with 12 people in their 20s and 12 people in their 30s.One person's interview took about 2 hours, and after recording, the contents were organized. Questions are the reasons for purchasing vegetable protein supplements, one-time purchase cost, type of vegetable protein supplement, and importance when purchasing vegetable protein supplements. Results: The ratio of men and women in their 20s and 30s was 50%, 12 people in their 20s and 12 people in their 30s.There were 10 students and 14 working people. Reasons to buy vegetable protein supplements include increased muscle mass, lower fat and cholesterol content than animal protein, and diet. The one-time purchase cost was 20,000 to 30,000 won, and the most common purchase of powdered vegetable protein supplements was the development of snacks, noodles, and confectionery. In addition, protein content, fat and cholesterol content, trusted brands, diet and help in increasing muscle mass were also considered important. Conclusion: It is best to develop vegetable protein products that consumers want, such as snacks, noodles, and bakery products addition, onetime cost is 20,000 to 30,000 won, and it is recommended to develop a products that can increase muscle mass and has low fat and low cholesterol content. Therefore, this study is thought to be helpful in the development of plant protein intake products suitable for the tastes of consumers in their 20s and 30s who are dieting and vegetarian.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study is to validate the effect of a movement therapy program applying the Marian Chase Technique on the peer relationship and behavior of deviation within the integral education for the non-disabled and disabled of the same age. Method: In this study, the students without disability participated in the experiment to validate the effectiveness of the integral movement therapy program applying the Marian Chase Technique. A total of 12 movement therapy programs were carried out once per week from September 4, 2019 until November 27, 2019 for 3 students with disability and 7 students without disability who participated in the M University’s movement therapy program. Results: As a result of measuring the peer relationship of the movement therapy program in the integrated environment, and student A improved by 32 points from 2 points during the 1st round to 34 points during the 12th round, and student B increased by 8 points from 1 point during the 1st round to 9 points during the 12th round. Furthermore, student C improved by a total of 21 points from 11 points during the 1st round to 28 points during the 12th round. As a result of measuring the frequency of behavior of deviation by period through the movement therapy program, student A with disability decreased by 75% from 4 times during the 1st round to once during the last 12th round on average. Student C with disability decreased by 50% from 6 times during the 1st round to 3 times during the 12th round, and student B with disability decreased by 25% from 8 times during the 1st round to 6 times during the 12th round. Conclusion: Consequently, it was evident that the effect of the movement therapy program for which the integral education was carried out has had an effect on the peer relationship and behavior of deviation of the children with mild autism. It is considered that the studies to develop an individualized movement therapy program for the students with autism demonstrating differences is needed.

  • Purpose: This study examines the current status of COVID-19 vaccination in the Republic of Korea. Therefore, we investigate the currently approved COVID-19 vaccines and their properties, COVID-19 vaccine prioritization guidance and timeline, and the status of adverse events after the COVID-19 vaccination. Moreover, we examine the SARS-CoV-2 variants and the current prevalent variants in the Republic of Korea. Method: This study was conducted on Web-based searches about the latest updates COVID-19 from the World Health Organization, Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety. In addition, we searched for the “COVID-19 OR vaccines” in PubMed and then reviewed the selected articles regarding COVID-19 vaccines, prioritization guidance, adverse effects, and variants. Results: To date, 4 COVID-19 vaccines have been received regulatory approval in the Republic of Korea. To promote stable COVID-19 vaccination, the COVID-19 Vaccination Promotion Task Force announced the order of COVID-19 vaccine distribution and vaccination schedules from the first and the third quarter of 2021, intending to complete the first dose of vaccination in 70% of the country's population by the end of September 2021. Currently, a total of 20,169,592 vaccine doses have been administered until August 02, 2021, representing 38.9% of the total population, and 7,289,659 individuals(about 14.1% of the country’s population) have been fully vaccinated so far. In total, 0.49%(105,937 cases) of individuals who were vaccinated reported adverse effects. Among them, 94.9% were general adverse reactions, and 5.1% were severe adverse effects, including death and suspected anaphylaxis(severe allergic reactions). Recently, Delta variant is significantly expanding since June, and it is currently the predominant strain of the virus in the Republic of Korea. Conclusion: Since June 12, the highest Social Distancing Level 4 has been implemented in the Seoul Metropolitan Area. With COVID-19 vaccination, we need to cooperate with antivirus measures and cancel unnecessary social gatherings to protect ourselves from the persistent infectious disease.

  • Purpose: Empirical research was conducted on the Korean security police by verifying the difference between the total working period of the police and the working period of the security department. Method: In this study, among police officers in the security department as of 2020 who had experience in work related North Korean defectors, 100 trainees in the Police Human Resources Development Institute were surveyed via self-administration method. Among the collected survey questionnaires, 91 were selected as valid samples, excluding those whose answers were incomplete or missing. Results: The differences in impressions according to the total length of service for the police were significant in Q-8, Q-11, Q-12, Q-13, Q-14, Q-15, Q-16, Q-17, Q-18, Q-19, and Q-20. Also, the differences in the impressions of security officers over their working periods were significant in Q-8, Q-14, Q-18, Q-19, and Q-20. Conclusion: efforts to improve the working environment and organizational culture must be made to improve the importance of police activities. Furthermore, measures for psychological and economic stability of police officials must be taken together to ensure a long working period. This will not only help improve the national security services but also improve crime prevention and response activities for the safety of the people.
