The problem here at Autumn Care is determining why job satisfaction is low. A lot of nurses have an issue staying with the company more than four years. Nurses also feel that there is not opportunity to grow with the company. Which cause them to leave and find another company that benefits them. The employees feel that the stress from working double and long shifts cause effects on their health, work, and their personal life. All employees feel that they should be paid more than what they receive. The pay is a major concern do the economy today, they feel that their should be more pay because the work that’s expected of them. This is where fair rewards come into play. Employees feel that the work they do and the effort they put forth should be reward in so way. After realizing that these problems are the down fall to low job satisfaction at Autumn Care give a clear understanding how things need to be fixed.
