A Selected Bibliography on Employee Attitude Surveys. Special Report.
Blasingame, Margaret C.
This bibliography provides an up-to-date compilation of literature covering all aspects of the employee attitude survey process. It is intended for both researcher and practitioner. A wide variety of sources are represented with a focus on the past 10-12 years of attitude survey research. The 473 citations compiled are categorized under 7 separate headings: (1) understanding job satisfaction, attitudes, and motivation theories; (2) assessing organizational commitment; (3) selecting an instrument and administering the survey; (4) analyzing and interpreting the data; (5) feeding back survey results and developing action plans; (6) determining the financial impact of a survey; and (7) general. Section 1 guides the reader to pertinent information for understanding theories on attitudes and job satisfaction plus certain theoretical models implicit in some attitude survey approaches. Sections 2 through 6 include a representative sample of literature supporting the seven distinct phases of the attitude survey process. The final section lists general citations which deal with overall issues or with subjects which tend not to fit in one of the other six categories. (KGB)
