I hope this is not an assignment given in one of the business schools.
Anyhow, the answer lies in the case itself. He/She is finding the job monotonous and the designation dull. So make it exciting, Job enlargement/Job enrichment could be thought of. Sometimes the villain could be job environment itself. I know personally a case where one of the very good employees started misbehaving as he was the only telex operator (happened in mid 1980's) and was confined to 6' X 4' room, all by himself. Understanding his difficulty, his seat was shifted to the common hall and the whole problem solved by itself.
So the real factors have to be identified and has to be dealt with to bring satisfaction.
