Unmotivated employees John Goode October 14, 2011 N/A Unmotivated employees Over the years large businesses and corporations have had to deal with the increase of unmotivated employees versus motivated employees. Can all the blame be placed on employees alone, or is it the management as well? Throughout this essay there will be three factors discussed on why unmotivated employees become unmotivated to do their jobs.

In addition, Friedman states that managers are often ill-equipped to be making decisions regarding social interests as they lack the necessary expertise to do so.

Issues The issue in this case is the problem of high turnover at the Telesouth company. Currently, Telesouth employs approximately 400 people. Over 200 of those employees were recruited since 2005, and of those recruited since 2005, sixty percent were under age thirty and for many of them Telesouth was their first employer. Telesouth’s approach to the HRM areas involves a three step process, including Recruitment/Selection, Induction/Orientation, and finally Socialization.
