The sociology work that has been done outlines a number of concepts, theories and models basing on the issue of management and the employees; they describe in a better manner the relationship between employees and the management (Allingham, 2002). Many organizations have realized that there can never be a flow in the production without good relationship between managers and employees. The role of managers is to guide the employees, and hence conducive workplace environment should be provided that allows execution of these guidelines (Tompkins, 2005). Due to this, the organizations have come into a conclusion that a number of management theories as well as practices should be incorporated into organisation operations.
In addition, some of these theories, models and concepts are geared towards improving the productivity of the organization. Apart from that, they are also important in enabling efficient management of the organization as well as enhancement of the financial rewards. Challenges are also emerging on daily basis, and one of the best ways of overcoming them is through incorporating management theories and functions into the organisation. It is very evident that most of the organizations experiences problems of scale because they are based on the formal rules as well as the issues of hierarchy levels.
However, this may not apply or rather work in organizations where complex division of labour and the formal rules meaning that the issue of bureaucracy may not apply or even work in such a case. In order for any manager to maintain a smooth and a good organizational culture, he or she should adopt some very important organizational theories. The theories that any organization may adopt must provide a strong link between the employees and the management (Allingham, 2002).
This means that they have to be structured in such a way that they provide great motivation and courage to the employees for improving their working skills and productivity. In addition, the theories also must infuse some aspects of the organization like values, experiences attitudes and beliefs. This is because organizational theories are the instrument that every organization uses to cause motivation among its workers and employees (Cameron & Quinn, 2005). These theories comprises of beliefs and ideas of which each member of that organization must comply with to achieve the objectives and the goals of that particular organization.
This then means that the theories must be made in such a way that they are acceptable to all the members of the organization whether in the management or employee level. One of the most important aspects that should be considered in implementing organizational theory is the issue of behaviour patterns in the organization (Tompkins, 2005). This is the reason as to why most of the organization organizes for seminars and workshops for their employees so that they can be informed about the organizational theories that are implemented by the organization; this is a great advantage because it enables the workers to change their behaviour accordingly to be in line with the organizational goals and objectives.
This also enables their behaviour to add credibility to their work as well as increase ethical value of the organization, adding its popularity hence giving it a platform for competition. It should be noted that any theory that an organization opts to implement, must be thoroughly scrutinized by the professions before critical decision about its creation is made (Hatch, 2006).
This is to ensure that it works for the betterment of that particular organization. A better strategic vision is therefore very important to ensure that all the cultural changes that are made are geared towards the wellbeing of that organization. Another importance of organizational theories is that it brings understanding between the employers and the employees (Allingham, 2002). As a result, it then leads to development of loyalty and trust within the organization.
If for example in a particular organization, the team leader in a department does not cope well with the rest of the employees, then it means that there is need to investigate and find out the root cause of the problem. By doing this, the organization will be ensuring that the theories that have been set do not just benefit the organization but also are taking care of the welfare of the employees (Scott, 2007). A number of theories that are used by organizations to achieve the above benefits and especially the issue of creating a good relationship between the employer and the employee are discussed in this paper.
The two theories namely contingency theory and rational choice theory tries to link relationship that exists between employees and employers (Tompkins, 2005).
