Recognizing the effect attitudes have on performance is important for managers. Organizational behavior involves studying the actions of people at work. Employee attitudes affect their behavior, so it is important for managers to understand how attitudes affect behavior to lower rates of turnover, to help satisfied employees perform better, to pinpoint if an employee is dissatisfied, and to reduce dissonance.
Organizational behavior focuses on behaviors in the workplace. Explain some of the job-related attitudes and how they affect job performance. Discuss motivation and job satisfaction among employees. What strategies and rewards can managers implement to enhance or generate employee motivation and goal setting for employees in the workplace?
