Case study – why a front line support worker is seeking to leave his organization

Tracy works as a direct service worker for a large agency supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities.  Tracy is passionate about supporting the people she works with.  She relates to the mission and vision of the organization she works for, she feels she belongs to a tribe and she has no intention of ever leaving the field or the organization.

Sean works as a direct service worker for a large agency supporting individuals with intellectual disabilities.  Sean is passionate about supporting the people he works with.  Sean has nothing good to say about the organization he works for and is actively seeking to leave the organization for another in the same field.

These two obviously work for very different organizations right?

Wrong, they both work for the same organization.  Different houses, same organization.  How can this be?

Research proves conclusively that people are much happier and perform much better when they think someone cares about them at work.  Are you more like Tracy’s awesome manager or Sean’s stinker?
