Consider the absenteeism of two typical employees. Jerrald has been with Gadgetron Inc. for 2 years. He believed that he had outgrown his job and was ready for a promotion. He applied for a position that would have been a promotion, but instead Gadgetron hired someone from outside the company. Following this perceived rejection, Jerrald began taking long lunches and spending more work time on social media sites and personal phone calls. Jerrald’s colleagues have noticed his withdrawal behavior. Their behavior has also changed as a result, some aligning with Jerrald in their engagement in personal activities during work time, while others have distanced themselves from Jerrald and those around him. His supervisors have raised issue with him individually and collectively with the team, to no avail. They are currently considering next steps for the group. How does the withdrawal of one employee impact a team or even an organization?

Jerrald’s withdrawal behaviors resulted from his specific feelings about advancement in the organization; however, resulting withdrawal behaviors and feelings of dissatisfaction can easily spread to others in an organization.
