Some Relationships Among and Between Measures of Employee Perceptions and Other Indices of Organizational Effectiveness. Research Report No. 5.
Schneider, Benjamin; Synder, Robert A.
Relationships among two measures of job satisfaction and one of organizational climate, among seven production and turnover indices of organizational effectiveness, and between the two sets of measures were investigated in 50 life insurance agencies (N=522). It was shown that: (1) climate and satisfaction measures are correlated for some people but not for others; (2) people agree more on the climate of their agency than they do on their satisfaction; (3) production and retention are uncorrelated but size is positively related to the former and negatively related to the latter; (4) ratings of agency effectiveness are highly related to gross agency size; and (5) satisfaction, but not climate, is correlated with retention. Implications of these data for research on climate and satisfaction as well as organizational change are discussed. (Author)
