Form the literature, negative work outcomes such as absenteeism and turnover (usually good employees who quit their job voluntarily), it is also possible to link that HR practices could contribute to deviant behavior. In general, the more favorable the HR practices are in that organization, the more favorable the work outcomes will be. As mentioned earlier, previous studies have revealed that unfavorable work environment could generally result in poor work performance. On the other hand, when HR practices seen to be undesirably practiced, employees will return such “favor” by doing their unfavorable behavior or deviant
The fear of losing one’s own job could be associated to Quantitative job security and the concern about certain valued aspects of a job such as insufficient/inadequate salary prospects could be associated to Qualitative job insecurity. The author of the article claims that if the employees are bullied there is a high likelihood that these workers may feel that their job is at stake and shall exhibit higher and higher levels of job insecurity. The study invariably looks upon the longitudinal relationship between bullying and job insecurity. The study actually revolves around the Leymann hypothesis and attempts to address the same. This particular proposition points out that bullying in the work place is linked with the rejection in working life.

Impact Assignment: Part 1 Job loss Jessica Gilman Liberty University Impact Assignment: Part 1: Job loss Introduction How is the topic defined or conceptualized? I chose job loss as my topic that I want to discuss. Job loss is defined as the economic change in a company or job market. Job loss could be of many things, the company doesn’t have the funding to be able to keep a person on, requirements not being met, older age in individuals, or they just don’t want to keep that individual on due to not liking them. There are form of job loss as well and they are called layoffs where the company could be downsizing or going bankrupt because of means financially.
As expected, when workers are aware they are being monitored, the average productivity of the assembly line is increased. This ultimately causes a bias in the data being collected during the study, and the results are not accurate. Intuitively, workers will work at a slower pace when they do not believe they are being monitored. In either case, workers do not take kindly to the fact they are being monitored. This was ultimately shown to be true when Devinatz discussed a worker quitting when they realized they were part of a time study.
Work related stress is a major health concern in the current state of the economy, where employees increasingly face situation of overwork, job insecurity, low levels of job satisfaction, and lack of autonomy. Although some workplace stress are normal, excessive stress can interfere with the employees’ attitude and behaviour. As a result, it gives a negative impact on the workplace productivity and profits, as well as having detrimental effect on the health and wellbeing of employees. According to Dr. Rosch (2001), the American Institute of Stress, job stress is estimated to cost U.S. industry more than $300 billion per year due to absenteeism, turnover, diminished productivity, and medical, legal and insurance costs. Therefore, there are several
According to Maslach et al (2001), the contributing factors of burnout may consist of situational factors and individual factors. The situational factors include job characteristics (such as workload, role conflict, or role ambiguity), occupational characteristics (such as emotional stress from work), and organizational characteristics (such as organizational processes or structures that may shape employees’ emotional and cognitive relationship with their works). Individual factors also play an important role in the occurrence of burnout, such as demographic characteristics (such as age, sex, or marital status), personality characteristics, and job attitudes (Maslach et al, 2001). Alexander (2009) summarizes various burnout’s risk factors into three
In addition, it can also deteriorate the core of the company by reducing the number of employees and as a result causing an insufficient workforce. “Workers originally want unions primarily for defensive purposes -- to protect against what they see as arbitrary decisions, such as sudden wage cuts, lay-offs, or firings. If they are going to compete successfully in an economy that can go boom or bust, then they need a great deal of flexibility in cutting wages, hiring and firing, and adding extra hours of work or trimming back work hours when need be.” (Domhoff, 2013) Another example is that, when being protected under a union, it makes it difficult to discipline workers. Participation in a union starts to become more about the circulation of connections rather than skills proficiency. Also, despite having a voice in a union, there may still be aggression and lack of cooperation and collaboration; which is vital in a workplace.

They point out several of the determinants to turnover such as satisfaction, occupation stress, organizational commitment, the idea of organizational fairness, the idea of performance appraisal, and the workload given to employees (Fang, 2001; Poon, 2004). These among various studies that have generally found that higher satisfaction, lack of fairness, and organizational treatment in the working environment resulted to individual intention to quit the jobs. These factors can push employees to leave voluntarily finding other alternative opportunities. In most cases, people have voluntarily quitted their occupations because they are receiving improper treatment from their employers. Such as delaying wage or overdue payments and not provided their labor
The employee 's job security fluctuates as we make major decisions. Employees see this as a concern since unemployment has risen around their community. In an article written by Jeff Smith, The Shareholders vs. Stakeholders Debate mentioned “that a manager’s duty is to balance the shareholders’ financial interests against the interests of other stakeholders such as employees, customers, and the local community, even if it reduces shareholder returns” (Smith, 2003). Another concern of our employees includes the potential stress from removing one of the managers and the feeling of instability for their own jobs. If the stakeholders are happy, the company has a longer lasting stability such that they have
