Determining why employee job satisfaction is low
I have started a new job a wholesaler company called Diamond Direct LLC located in midtown Manhattan, NY. This company primary business is supplying finish jewelry and Diamond to huge retailer such as JCPenney, Walmart, Zales, Kay jewelers, Sterling and much more. This company has been around since opening their doors in the year 2000 and presently has about 75 employees, and with the current state of the economy this business is growing quite rapidly.

Another factor to consider is also the idea that everyone in the workplace is potentially not satisfied with what they are doing and they are not happy with the position, but why would they continue to work in a non-satisfying position? My final proposal for this course project will mainly focus on the factor that affect and motivates DDLLC Employees internally and externally and how it compares to their job contentment within this workplace.
