Vocational Needs, Occupational Reinforcers, Job Satisfaction, and Job Turnover Among Vocational Evaluators. Final Report.
Dunn, Dennis J.; And Others
The project for which the document is the final report began with concern over rapid turnover among vocational evaluators in rehabilitation facilities. The job turnover problem was analyzed according to the Minnesota theory of work adjustment. Resulting data suggest that vocational evaluators who change jobs do so because of dissatisfaction with extrinsic factors such as organizational policies and compensation, and that change of supervisory practice is needed at least as much as change in training or functions of the evaluators.
