Recommendations for the Measurement of Organizational Climate.
Schratz, Mary K.
This study provides recommendations for the measurement of organizational climate based on relationships between organizational climate and job performance and satisfaction. A search of climate studies was conducted in the business and psychology literatures, and meta-analyses of correlations with performance and satisfaction were performed (16 studies). Results indicate that the following climate dimensions serve as predictors of job performance and satisfaction: (1) supervisory style, (2) decision-making, (3) coworker relations, (4) risk, and (5) reward. Additional predictors of satisfaction are employee competence, pressure, task characteristics, and responsibility. Recommendations are made for the development of climate surveys. Five tables illustrate the discussion. (Contains 26 references.) (Author/SLD)
