From the Paper:

"A periodic evaluation will also help determine if any trends of worker burn out or disillusionment in the employee. When new positions and jobs open up within organizations, managers and supervisors that advertise this position should have a clear expectation of the needs of the position and the long-term viable options that the position will provide to the success of the goals and missions of the organization. Training is also needed to ensure that new workers are not overwhelmed by the task expected of them."
