Paula and her family had no other choice but to leave behind their family, friends and other precious things that meant everything to them. After moving to Australia, Paula faced a few problems. She was emotionally unbalanced. She got irritated with her new job. Becoming financially unstable made her feel anxious.

As a result of all this, she became an angry and moody individual. Besides her emotions, she also faced cultural gaps. Paula also found that her motivation levels were unstable. It is recommended that the organization Human resource management play a role in handling person like Paula. A lot of ways will be explained later in this essay on rewarding a hard worker like Paula.
