Job Satisfaction and Workplace Commitment: Essential Work Attitudes for Building Game-Changing Organisations

Programme Overview

Job satisfaction and organisational commitment are nebulous concepts. Organisational leaders talk about them a great deal, but, if pressed to explain exactly what they mean are hard pushed to provide precise definitions.

Retaining an adequate and qualified workforce is a prerequisite for a well-functioning organisation, but it is sometimes difficult to realise when conditions, such as corrosive culture and climate tend to decrease employees’ job satisfaction and organisational commitment. Extensive research proved that employees who are satisfied with their jobs are more likely to be committed and motivated to achieve high target. Studies have also shown that employees’ job satisfaction and organisational commitment do not happen in isolation, they are dependent on organisational variables such as structure, size, pay, working conditions, line mangers, colleagues, communication and leadership, which constitute organisational climate.

So, how do organisational leaders stimulate job satisfaction and organisational commitment in their direct reports and other subordinates through intrinsic and extrinsic rewards? Organisational leaders have many options, one of which is to pay due attention to the antecedents and components/facts of job satisfaction and organisational commitment with a view to ensuring that an optimal mix of intrinsic and extrinsic factors are employed to enhance job satisfaction and workplace commitment. Another option, which is not mutually exclusive with the first, is for organisational leaders to promote conducive organisational culture and climate to facilitate the achievement of job satisfaction and organisational commitment.

This highly interactive, compressed and intense two-day programme provides participants and their employers with leading practice approaches to promoting conducive climates and right culture that enhance the satisfaction employees derive from their jobs and different aspects of the jobs, and ultimately the level of commitment to their organisation.

Participants will learn through our blended learning approach, including presentations, case studies, role plays, insights from a human resource practitioner and theoretical and empirical evidence on the influence of job satisfaction and commitment in the workplace.
