|Organisational research has long debated the nature and strength of the relationship between job attitudes (e.g., job satisfaction and organisational commitment) and job performance criteria.|
Research shows that job attitudes is strongly linked to employee behaviours such as: work performance, lateness, absenteeism and turnover. On the other hand employee satisfaction, commitment and job performance increases while lateness, absenteeism and turnover decrease.
A general positive attitude to a job leads individuals to contribute rather than withhold effort to their job.
In the past, clients have asked us "What is the predictive validity of surveying?", or in other words, "How does surveying our employees impact on productivity and performance?"
Answer: Employee engagement surveys affecting an organisation's bottom-line lies not in the process itself, but in the engagement survey results that the tools deliver. This includes results that are benchmarked and actionable.
