However, Sekiguchi and Huber (2011) stated that evaluation based on PJ fit will be less importantly weighted in permanent contract-based job, i.e. in the long term. This is because as business environment changes, PJ fit at the time of hiring will not promise excellent long-term outcome. However, it is argued that if an individual understand accurately of the job requirements, he can better adjust to the job (Wanous, 1977). This may be due to self-motivation because he understands well the job and he will find ways to adjust to changing environment.

Staff may feel demotivated and unsatisfied in the work they do. Technology Advances in technology could lead to improved working practices and therefore the need for employees could reduce.

The motivators are typically related to intrinsic factors meaning work motivation coming from within a human being. These include: a sense of achievement, recognition, responsibility and opportunity for personal growth and advancement.

Herzberg’s theory is relevant in this case as it argues
A worker almost always wants to obtain job security, so he/she will try to do a good job even if that means trying to do better than someone else. On the other hand, if there is an indolent worker that does not care about his job it will be easy for another worker of the same stature to seem more efficient to said worker. The diligent worker knew what to do in his job environment regardless of any changes. As a result the lazy worker would be terminated from his job and will then have to try and find a new job in order to survive. Workers who cannot keep up with their jobs will be forced to do something about it or will be left behind with nothing just like Bartelby.

If you wrap the downturn in a way that could be socially responsible, it will further strengthen the trust between the labour and management. The next time round, the workers would be even more responsive. But if you wrap up this downturn wrongly, you recognise only, you give consideration only to the stakeholders, you give them more dividends in some cases special dividends and neglecting the role of the workers, then the next downturn it will be more difficult for them to expect the labour movement to respond accordingly". o This shows that people in the down part of the business will try to work as hard as they can because they know and want to achieve success or the goal in which they will get a higher
