The paper "Employee Commitment and Organizational Success" is a wonderful example of a Management Case Study. The employee is an integral part and the most important factor in any organization. The employee performance and attitude count in the long run in the success of any enterprise. This is simply verified if we visit two stores, one where the employees are cheerful and helpful and another where they are passive. We find that customer satisfaction increases where the employee takes an interest in his work and is committed to his organization. The Hypothesis, therefore, focuses on this important issue.
Today it is relevant because of the attrition rate and the job-hopping tendency of the employees and workforce. Therefore it is pertinent to research on what the factors that promote employee loyalty and motivation are and how this is linked to the growth of the company. Changes are the order of the day and as expansion takes place and the management gets more and more complicated, it is necessary for a supervisory agency to exist within the organization to ensure that all the policies and visions of the company and all mandatory regulations, especially with regard to risk and performance safety is followed. Hypothesis The hypothesis, therefore, is that ‘ Committed Employees cause the growth and success of an enterprise – Therefore every enterprise ought to remodel activities to create employee interest’ That is more employee interest in the work, it will result in more effective business. Literature and opinions What role does a commitment to play in an organization?
To this, we have various authors expressing a multitude of opinions. Commitment is very important and this is expressed by “ Commitment binds the gap between an employee and an organization'.
It can be said that commitment is a vital component in the employee - organization linkage. Commitment boosts the employees to work, perform, and retain his /her job. It is an important variable for understanding the work behavior of employees in organization. ” (1) With fierce competition building up at organizational levels it becomes very difficult for organizations to perform and perform well if its employees are not committed to the organization. Previously in the past organizations used to serve employee faith by guaranteeing them job security.
But during the course of time due to intensive competition 'hire and fire strategy' has been adopted by organizations that lead to job satisfaction. A general business prevailed and employees felt that they were the victims of false promises. Coetzee. (2005) The main aim of an organization is to earn profits. For maximizing profits it has to perform well. Employee commitment plays an important part in organizational growth and performance, in other words, the success of the company depends on the work commitment of employees. If employees are heartily committed to their work then success is assured.
An organization is just like a family. Employers and employees are their family members. Therefore the most important duty is to protect the family by listening to employee demands and assuring them job security. In simple words, it is like 'look after the employees, the employees will look after your company'. Coetzee. (2005)
