There are four major challenges of organizational behavior and management that over the next several decades both FMC locations will have to consider. First challenge would be management. Management needs to be able to judge the competence of its employees. Skills, abilities, habits, character traits, and knowledge are what an employee must posses in order to do a job satisfactorily. An example of this would be the Aberdeen employee selection process. The assessments and ardent process that Aberdeen makes an employee go through to just get into the company shows that the company and its managers are committed to finding the right person for the job.

A few of the things that would influence a persons feeling of contentment with in a position or company is the level of pay, benefits, growth with in the company, working environment, management, coworkers and most importantly the job function and duties. At this company if a person can not work independently on the task they have and ethically be able to conduct themselves with their co-workers they would not be happy.
