      Radamés Santiago, Dr. Toni DiDona
Abstract: This study had the objective of investigating what was the tie between the presence of a predominant heterosexual work environment and how it affects the organizational fit of employees who identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual. Previous studies have revealed how LGB individuals who experience discrimination and bullying has led them to have a negative view towards their job. Other researchers have pointed out how a predominant heterosexual work environment has correlated negatively with job satisfaction and correlated positively with intentions of LGB employees to resign. As a conceptual framework for this study the Theory of Work Adjustment (TWA) and the Social Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT) provided insight for incorporating the person environment fit, and helped in describing how a person’s environment impacted their self efficacy and relates exhaustion and stress that LGB employees might experience in their jobs, respectively. Utilizing these two theories, this study hypothesized that a repressing LGB environment proved to correlate negatively with job outcomes and person environment fit, relating to LGB employees. Data was collected through an online survey constructed combining Waldo’s Workplace Heterosexist Questionnaire and Oldenburg’s Burnout Inventory. The most important outcome from this study was how LGB employees informed being more exhausted at the end of their workday when compared to heterosexual employees.
