The Impact of Organizational Structure on Employees’ Creativity: A Sector Based Study

The formalization also affects the employeescreativity at workplace and is negatively associated to it. Thus if the organization will prefer more formalized systems and procedures there will be less chances of workplace creativity. Thus, the higher the formalization in an organization the lesser the employee creativity. The work specialization also has a negative relationship with the employeescreativity but it has a relatively less significant impact as compared to the other two variable but it is very obvious from the present study that work specialization and division of work among the employees increases the efficiency at workplace but it ultimately leads to a certain reduction in employeescreativity. Thus, the more the specialization of work in an organization, the lesser the creativity management at workplace. In a nutshell, we can say that the organizational structure strongly affects the creativity at workplace but in a negative direction. The centralization and formalization must be suppressed in an organizational structure to develop employeescreativity. The organizations must develop a decentralized and less formal structure to promote the employee creativity.

Lavalee and Campbell (1995) defined career self-management as taking the responsibility for your own career development.

Designing the organizational creativity based on job characteristics and job involvement among physical education units’ employees of Technology University

explained that they hypothesized the conceptual core of the approach of JCM from motivational theory of expectancy [11-16], and included concepts such as core job characteristics (e. g., skill variety, task identity, task significant, autonomy, and feedback), psychological states (meaningfulness of the work, responsibility for the outcomes of the work, and knowledge the actual results of the work), and attitudinal and behavioral outcomes (e. g., growth satisfaction, general satisfaction, internal work motivation, efficiency, and absenteeism). The new insights of Oldham and Hackman (2010) put greater emphasis on job characteristics and team building in workplaces, whereas they had originally argued that the characteristics of skill variety, task identity and task significance lead to the psychological state of meaningfulness of work and increase responsibility for the outcomes of work through the feature of autonomy. On the other hand, the same studies indicate that job characteristics cannot have direct effects on their own and should result in favorable outcomes through psychological mechanisms [20]. Hence, investigating research revealed that highly valuable job attitudes such as organizational citizenship behavior, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, job involvement, etc achieved through the main characteristics of job among which, job attitude and job involvement are the most valuable elements because they are more internal and more permanent than other job attitudes [2]. By investigating this research and the nature of university’s physical education unit, this study designed to explain organizational creativity through the main characteristics of job including the skill diversity, task importance, task identity, autonomy, job feedback, information processing, problem solving and expertise. But the main point is that this impact will not be identified directly and the mediator role of job involvement will be analyzed. Therefore, the present study designed for the purpose of designing an organizational creativity model through the main characteristics of job and job

According to Kenexa Institute, a consultancy body tracking global work performance trends, in their 2011 report, employee engagement was declining globally, a scenario which has been worrying governments as well as corporate. According to Kowalski, (2003); Bate (2004) and Johnson, (2004) USA economy loses a whopping $300 billion annually in productivity resulting from disengaged employees. In 2012, a Scottish government commissioned study showed work engagement was low globally. Individual researchers have also reported low work engagement among public sector employees compared to their private sector counterparts (Agyemang and Ofei, 2013); besides Quantum consultancy firm reported work engagement levels in the private sector stood at 65% and 45% in the public sector in the United States of America for 2013.

The Impact of Organizational Structure on Organizational Commitment: A Comparison between Public and Private Sector Firms in Jordan

This study investigated the impact of organizational structure dimensions on organizational commitment in selected private and public firms in Amman.

These findings are consistent with previous research (Subramaniam et al, (2002; Auh and Menguc, 2007; Nahm et al., 2003).

An impact of work life balance on women employees in banking sector An empirical study

An impact of work life balance on women employees in banking sector An empirical study

Women of the early centuries were mostly confined to their kitchens and those who were employed worked in factories, farms or shop works. Very few women had the access to higher education and they were forced to be at the mercy of their fathers’ or husbands’ attitudes towards women and work. The fast developing knowledge economy has given place for more number of women to be enlightened by higher education. Education has not only empowered them but also has given them robust careers. With brain power being the requisite skill in this knowledge era, rather than endurance or physical strength, the women workers seem to flood into every industry on par with men. But this has indeed become a tough challenge for women as they have to perform a lot of duties in home and office as well. As working women get married, they have additional responsibilities and when they become mothers, they have to manage the primary care of children and extended family and are thus, under greater pressure to continue on a career path. Working mothers of today’s generation fulfill family responsibilities and also try to remain fully involved in their careers coping up with the competing demands of their multiple roles. The caring responsibilities that working mothers have lays a heavy stress on them when it is combined with their professional duties. The attempt of working women to integrate, organize and balance the various problems and activities in their different roles simultaneously puts them under tremendous pressure. As a result, the family becomes an organizational stakeholder and this powerful social trend marked the beginning of the work/life balance paradigm shift This paper focuses on the tough life of married working women of Coimbatore District in their battle to strike a balance between work and family life.

The Impact of Perceived Organizational Justice on ‎Organizational Commitment among Bouchrit Corporation ‎Employees

The Impact of Perceived Organizational Justice on ‎Organizational Commitment among Bouchrit Corporation ‎Employees

Organizations are considered as social and human units besides economic aspects. Inside these entities, managers and decision-makers should reorient their subordinates according to these considerations: fairness, equality; they shouldn’t tend to focus on the productive or economic aspect, and neglect the social and human aspect. A lot of psychologists, sociologists and managers discussed the manner to reach balance between entities actors within the organizations; or rather focused on achieving competitive advantages without losing the sight of human aspect. Therefore, we find that the modern approach of human resources management is based on considering human resource as a real partner who must be dealt with a manner taking into account the achievement of all parties’ objectives.

THE MUTUAL IMPACT OF ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE AND STRUCTURE

THE MUTUAL IMPACT OF ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE AND STRUCTURE

in the organization’s specialization level. Differentiation of managerial activities determines who decides on what, and results in a certain level of centralization or decentralization of authority within the organization. Integration is realized in unit grouping and coordination. Unit grouping, or departmentalization, implies structuring of activities and tasks into organizational units, and it can be based on input (functional), output (market or project), or a combination of the two (matrix). Individual and group activities and tasks in an organization are harmonized by coordination, in order for it to function as a unified whole. Coordination can be achieved through five basic mechanisms: direct supervision, mutual communication, process standardization, output standardization, and knowledge standardization (Mintzberg, 1979). Differentiation and integration in organizational structuring therefore imply four essential dimensions of organizational structure: job design, delegation of authority, unit grouping, and coordination. These dimensions of organizational structure are congruent, which means that there is harmony or concordance between them. Presumption of congruency is fundamental for the concept of organizational structuring (Miller, 1990; Mintzberg, Miller, 1984; Mintzberg, 1979). It assumes that congruency or harmony as dimensions of the organizational structure leads to better performance of the organization. In order for an organization to be successful it has to provide mutual congruency of the dimensions of its own organizational structures. This, then, leads to the formation of configurations of congruent structural dimensions, which is just a different name for models of organizational structure. An organizational model is actually a unique configuration of congruent structural dimensions: a certain level of specialization and (de)centralization levels, a certain unit grouping mode, and a certain coordination mechanism. The most prominent classification of models of organizational structure as configurations of structural dimensions has been provided by Mintzberg, (Mintzberg, 1979), and it will be used in this paper.

Impact of Corporate Social Responsibility on Job Attitudes: Job Satisfaction and Organizational Commitment of Banking Sector Employees of Pakistan

Organizational commitment is an important dimension of the work attitudes of the employees. It can be described as the psychological identification that has been felt by an individual towards his or her organizing (Mowday, 1982). Organizational commitment means a relationship between organization and employee and he decided to keep up this relation (J. P. a. N. J. A. Meyer, 1997). An Individual joins an organization with some needs and hopes towards organization, seeks opportunities to implement his skills and abilities. He expects to work in good working environment, feels safety, find recognition of his work and other factors which satisfies his needs. If an organization fulfills such needs of the individual, it enhances his organizational commitment level (Vakola, 2005). Brammer et al. (2007) conducted a study in which a sample of 4712 employees from financial services companies was taken in order to find out the relationship between CSR and job satisfaction. Both internal and external CSR were measured. For the measurement of internal CSR 6 items were used to measure procedural justice and 3 items were used to measure provision of training opportunities. To measure external CSR 1 item was used to measure community involvement. Job satisfaction was measured by using 28 items taken from Spector’s (1997) “Job Satisfaction survey”. The results showed a positive relationship between internal CSR (justice perceptions and training provision), external CSR (community involvement) and job satisfaction. (Imran Ali, 2010). In 2007 the research of (S. Brammer, Millington, A., & Rayton, B, 2007) identified that there is a positive relationship between organizational commitment and CSR practices as perceived by employees.
