Pplication of Organizational Behavior Concepts


Healthcare Inc. is facing a challenge with employee turnover. Statistics showed that almost 50 percent of the turnover were employees in the first year of their employment with the organization, a number that was more than 20 percent higher than the national average. Healthcare Inc. estimates that turnover costs the Healthcare Inc. as much as $2.2 million annually, and that reducing turnover could have a significant impact not only on its bottom line, but also the morale of its employees.

You are an organizational behavior consultant who has been hired by Healthcare Inc. to help address their turnover problem.

In this assignment, describe the process you would use to identify the causes of the high turnover at Healthcare Inc.. Assume that in your investigation you discover three issues that are at the root of the turnover problems.

Examples of issues that you may identify (please note that you could use issues not listed):

a? Diversity issues, Recruitment and employee selection issues, Work Design issues, Employee Attitude and Engagement Issues, Motivational Issues, Compensation issues, Leadership issues, Organizational culture issues, Organizational structure issues, Power and political issues, Group and team issues, Stress-related issues

Once you have identified your three issues, please provide a detailed description of each issue and how it relates to a concept and/or theory that we have covered in the class. Using material from the class and from Organizational Behavior research you will also need to describe your proposed solution for Healthcare Inc. to address their issues. I expect your coverage of the issues to be an extension of what we have covered in the class. In other words, do not just cite the book as your source.

Assignment Guidelines:

a? Paper should contain at least 3 references from ((((((((peer reviewed journals)))))))).
