HR for Sustainable Growth: Job Satisfaction Among Bank Employees

In today’s globalized business world and cut-throat competition-era, the organization can only survive with sustainable growth. No organization can achieve a sustainable growth without the help of its human resources (HR), which have always been treated as the most valuable of all the resources in the organization. This sustainable growth will come only by providing job satisfaction to its employees. Vroom (1964) postulated a model of job satisfaction which reflects valence of the job for its incumbent. He argued that the strength of the force on a worker to remain on his job is an increasing function of valence on his job. Sinha (1974) defines job satisfaction as a “Reintegration of effects produced by individual’s perception of fulfillment of his need in relation to his work and the situations surrounding it”. Juliane (2010) notes that job satisfaction has steadily declined in U. S.A. over the years despite big improvements in the work environment, such as a reduction of workplace hazards and an increase in vacation days. The main objective of the study is to find out the factors which can contribute to job satisfaction of an employee. It is a quantitative research, descriptive in nature. Sample survey method is used for data collection. The universe of the study was Indore. The population of the study was all the employees of nationalized banks. The sampling unit was the clerical cadre bank employees. The sample size was 50. The sampling technique used was convenience sampling technique. The data was collected through self structured and self administered questionnaire. Finally the data was analyzed through various statistical tools like graphs, charts etc.

A Comparative Study on Motivation Level of Employees in Government and Private Hospitals

The Hawthorne Studies began the human relations approach to management, whereby the needs and motivation of employees become the primary focus of managers. Motivation is known to be a predictive variable which influences employee job satisfaction. The study is to be done within the purview of certain variable which will clearly underline the factors which motivate the employees of various sectors and would help in comparative analysis of the level of motivation & the corresponding factors involved in it.
