Attitudes, Beliefs, Values

Organizations need to maintain a remarkable structure through effecting the right organizational attitudes, beliefs and values that will be vital in the achievement of set goals and targets. An Organization that seeks to explore an environment where the operations are based on an effective organizational culture stands to gain in the long run since the employees’ tasks are guided.

Organizational attitudes are work-related perceptions that employees possess towards the tasks they are entrusted to carry out. This is important as it will determine to the extent to which to organization’s goals will be achieved. Management needs to make sure that the employees perceive their jobs as satisfying and are motivated in every sense though sound working conditions.

Managing of attitudes can be harnessed through prompt and remuneration that reflects equity to the kind of jobs the employees undertakes. Involvement of employees in policy formulation and due communication of the policies and procedures will also go ahead to bridging that management-employee gap as the employees feel they are actively involved in the organizations’ plans.

Organizational beliefs are part of the culture that an organization assumes in the achievement of its goal and objectives. Management need to instill a good culture that will guide them in their daily tasks. For example, it might be a good culture for employees to know that they are always expected to report to work in time. Management can instill this aspect into the organization’s activities through necessary constant memos and issuance of rules and regulations to new employees and also constantly reminding the existing employees of how the organization interests are to be prioritized.

Managing values in an organization can be taxing, especially taking into consideration that human are autonomous and can do things independently under the radar of management. The important thing is that management can shape these values and incorporate them in the employees’ operations. Management should be aware that the right organizational values are the guiding principles to an effective structure and those employees will mirror their activities to the established values.

Values like integrity, honesty, transparency and accountability should first emanate from the organization’s management and then will trickle down to the other lower-level employees. It would not make organizational sense if management is involved in corrupt dealings and then campaign for their employees not to be corrupt. Indeed, these values can be cultivated through proper recognition and rewarding employees that incorporate these values in their tasks and also effecting disciplinary actions on employees that do the contrary. This will surely take the organization to the next level as far as achievement of goals is concerned.
