In my workplace the type of behavior is voluntary. I can speak on this because I handed in my resnation to the company three days ago. The reasons for me leaving my current position are variety, identity, autonomy and significance. The variety at my current job was repetition because I constantly had to prove plus provide evidence that I have completed my task or show backdated emails to corroborate my side of the story. Co-workers at my job always do not have a sense of urgency when work needs to be completed. So someone else ends up completing the task at hand. Secondly, identity according to Colquitt is the degree to which the job requires completing a whole, identifiable piece of work from beginning to end with visible outcome. I have worked in my current position for two years. When I first joined the company their conversion rate in personal care was twenty-three percent.

By just calculating voluntary leave from the company they are not realizing that for every employee that resigns. The company is losing income because who can you hire someone to fill-in a position with out training them first. Also, if you are constantly training new employees remember that cost money as well.

Currently, the workplace is very diverse as far as age, sexual preference and race. In the homecare industry it is predominately women. I think the industry need more men in the field and in the office. I do apologize for what I am about to say but I do not like working with all women. Women are vindictive and caddie if they do not like you they will make sure everyone around you do not like you instead of focusing in on work.

Currently, the company's moral is in the toilet and they do not
