Schneider and Snyder define job satisfaction as a personal evaluation of the current conditions of the job or the outcomes that arise as a result of having a job. Sempane, Rieger and Roodt appear to agree with this definition, stating that job satisfaction refers to the individual's perception and evaluation of the job.
According to these authors, the individual's perception is influenced by his or her unique circumstances such as needs, values and expectations.
Therefore jobs are evaluated by people on the basis of factors that are important to them. Although the definitions of job satisfaction are varied, it is generally considered to be an attitude or feeling that one has about one's job that is either positive or negative.
According to Lockefor researchers to have a clear understanding of job attitudes, they need to know the various factors that have an influence in the job. Extrinsic dimensions form part of the job situation, are influenced by others and are beyond the employee's control Lawler, Examples are factors such as the work itself, pay, promotion opportunities, working conditions, supervision and co-workers. Intrinsic rewards are self-regulated and a direct result of the individual's performance.
Lawler explains that intrinsic rewards satisfy higher-order needs, for example feelings of accomplishment and achievement and the satisfaction of utilising one's skills and abilities. Robbins, Odendaal and Roodt point out that intrinsic factors, such as advancement, recognition, responsibility and achievement, appear to be related to job satisfaction. Job satisfaction can be measured in two ways - namely, by the facet approach or the global approach. The former refers to assessing how employees feel about various aspects of the job such as rewards pay or fringe benefitsjob conditions, people on the job supervisors and co-workers and the work itself Robbins, ; Spector, This study defined job satisfaction as the feeling individuals have about their jobs.
Hence this research was concerned with measuring the affective aspect of job satisfaction using the global approach. In a review of studies investigating organisational climate and job satisfaction, Peek found that organisational climates that exhibit characteristics such as having a high degree of autonomy, providing opportunities for employees, nurturing relationships among employees, showing interest in and concern for their employees, recognising employees' accomplishments and holding employees in high regard result in more satisfied workers.
Similarly, Brief found that salary, benefits and advancement opportunities were components of organisational climate that had a direct influence on job satisfaction. A possible explanation could be that studies tend to focus more on organisational culture Sempane et al. Flowing from the above discussion, the following hypotheses were formulated: There is a strong positive relationship between the dimensions of organisational climate and job satisfaction.
Organisational climate dimensions that are perceived as being personal to or having a direct impact on the individual have a greater influence on job satisfaction than organisational climate factors that are perceived as being external to or influencing the individual indirectly.
Research objectives The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between organisational climate and job satisfaction in an information and communication technology ICT organisation in South Africa.
The methodology and the statistical approach used will be discussed next. This will be followed by a discussion of the results and an indication of whether the results support the stated hypothesis. Questionnaires were completed electronically and handled anonymously. The medium used was the intranet, which makes it possible for surveys to be conducted effectively and efficiently. The primary reason for utilising this approach was time and cost savings as well as the geographical location of employees.
Research method Research participants The non-probability convenience sample consisted of employees from three regions of an ICT organisation in South Africa, yielding a response rate of The target population can be described as all professional, management, technical, support and administrative personnel i. The unit of analysis was each employee, regardless of his or her status in the various departments and across the three regions.
This enabled the researcher to achieve a diverse offering in terms of the employees in these regions of the organisation. Table 3 indicates the biographical details of the respondents. The sample consisted of Of the sample, African, Coloured and Indian respondents made up only The majority of respondents in the sample had worked for the organisation for six to ten years, representing The least represented category was for four to five years, with only 9.
Of the respondents, Table 3 also indicates that most of the sample respondents - Finally, Table 3 indicates that Measuring instrument One measuring instrument was utilised to measure both variables in this study. The questionnaire measured overall organisational climate as well as the different components or dimensions of organisational climate that could impact on job satisfaction.
The original questionnaire was adapted by reviewing statements by conducting focus groups and holding interviews with key stakeholders, the human resource executive and the regional human resource managers. The organisational climate questionnaire consisted of 70 items used to measure 12 dimensions of organisational climate see Table 2. The questionnaire utilised a Likert-type scale in which the individual was presented with five alternative responses for each statement, ranging from strongly disagree 1 to strongly agree 5.
All items were positively scored and the final score for each dimension was obtained by acquiring a mean score for each dimension. The levels of reliability and validity estimated in the current study are reported in the results section in this article. Research procedure Permission to conduct the research in each region was obtained from the business executive concerned. Thereafter an invitation was sent out via e-mail to the potential participants, requesting their participation in the electronic survey.
A URL link that directed potential respondents to the survey instrument was provided in the invitation letter. The questionnaire took between 20 and 30 minutes to complete and all the responses were submitted anonymously. Statistical analysis The following statistical analyses were conducted by means of the SPSS version A confirmatory factor analysis was then conducted using the AMOS 7.
The descriptive statistics, with specific reference to mean, standard deviation, skewness and kurtosis, are presented in Table 4 and were computed for the various dimensions assessed by the questionnaire. In addition, the table provides Cronbach's alpha coefficients for each dimension and the total scale.
All the Cronbach alpha scores are above 0. According to Nunnallya suitable criterion for instruments in the early stages of development is regarded as between 0. It was thus decided to include all dimensions in the further analysis.
The mean scores were used to summarise the climate in the organisation. For the purposes of this study, the recommended cut-off score of 3. Research by the HSRC indicates that an average of 3.
From Table 3it is clear that the climate facet means in the organisation can be defined as positive, with a mean score of 3. The results indicated that the employees were mostly satisfied with the various aspects of the organisation measured by the 11 climate dimensions and the job satisfaction dimension, because all except two dimensions yielded means over the 3.
The results of the training and development 3. Hence, these dimensions could be considered as future areas of development for the organisation. The job satisfaction of the organisational members was also measured.
This was achieved by employing the global approach, whereby certain questions were asked to elicit affective responses about the employees' jobs. The results indicated that the respondents were satisfied with their jobs 3.
Table 4 also provides the reliability statistics of the scales of the questionnaire. The alpha coefficients of 11 of the dimensions ranged from 0. The work environment scale, however, appeared to have an unacceptably low reliability 0. This alpha value suggests that the items in this scale did not correlate strongly with other items in this scale or with the total work environment scale and consideration should be given to including additional items to or removing some items from this dimension.
A confirmatory factor analysis, using AMOS 7. The results illustrated that most of the indices were wide of their respective recommended values, thereby indicating a lack of fit for the factor model in question. Hypothesis 1 was therefore not supported. Because of the lack of fit obtained with the 12 dimensions of the original organisational climate questionnaire, an exploratory factor analysis EFA was conducted to investigate the underlying factor structure of the questionnaire.
It was expected that these 12 dimensions would be distinct from one another and that the job satisfaction scale would be loaded independently from the other 11 dimensions of the questionnaire. The EFA was conducted using the principal axis factoring technique with an oblique promax rotation.
The Kaiser criterion, which specifies that only factors with eigenvalues of 1. Absenteeism and turnover rates are higher for those with a sense of commitment, lower Those who are more committed, less likely to seek another job to pay Commitment to effort and performance.
It means that the employees' commitment to their organization, the more they try to do more for the better. Somewhere else, the relative degree of organizational commitment as a person's identification with the organization and his involvement and participation has been defined. In this definition, the commitment of three factors: According to the goals and values of the organization Tends to considerable effort to the organization Strong and deep wish to continue membership in the organization.
The owner rational people who really are part of your organization, it will have a greater commitment to increase their efforts and decrease of turnover in them. Studies show that policies, plans, financial position, or shares of any organization suitable working environment does not become, but what makes the company an ideal work environment, employees feel about the environment work.
Working conditions for the creation and growth of employees feel summarized in three factors: Management, job, and colleagues. Over the last few decades of the first definition of organizational climate is going. During this period, various definitions proposed that the essence of all of them in two elements taken: A system of cognitive mental elementwhich reflects the value system of the organization Mass withdrawal emotional element of policy, practice, and methods of organization arise. The first case is linked to the culture of the organization and more about the other represent a stream that is associated with the leadership.
The atmosphere, the view is a nonvisible part of the vision and culture of the organization, like an iceberg floating in the water. Although thinkers about the definition of organizational climate do not have consensus, but most of its features in the same views have been expressed.
Structural approach Organizational climate, organizational structure is considered to be objective. Since the members of the organization share common structural features, find common understanding that climate forms. In other words, organizational climate organizational structure, its objective is that people encounter it and understand it.
Conceptual approach Based on this approach, the basic part of the creation of the organizational climate within individuals people respond to situational variables in ways that are meaningful to them is psychological. Describe the psychological climate of the organization. Interactive approach According to this approach, in response to situations that they face to reach a common agreement that is the foundation of organizational climate. The disadvantage of this approach is that the impact of organizational culture on cooperation and communication among members of the group are not considered.
Cultural approach According to this approach, organizational climate is a result of the interaction of a group of people who share a frame of mind. The disadvantage of this method is that it requires an explanation of the relationship between culture and climate.
Level of organizational commitment in schools that have the appropriate climate than schools that do not have good organizational climate are significant, more The organizational affective commitment in schools that have the appropriate climate than schools that do not have good organizational climate is significantly, remarkably higher The continuous commitment of organizational climate in schools that are appropriate to the proper climate is significantly schools, remarkably higher Organizational normative commitment in schools that have the appropriate climate than schools that do not have good organizational climate is significantly, remarkably higher.
According to research by Goleman et al. Morris and Bloom  examined the relationship between the position and the results showed that their commitment, culture, and climate have a significant influence on employee job satisfaction.
In this study, the mediating role of job consciousness in the relationship between climate and organizational commitment was investigated it is not short. Job consciousness, a cultural norm is to do good work in the community, positive spiritual values and believes that the work itself has an intrinsic value. It is necessary to work, subject to compliance with specific requirements including a detailed and comprehensive work to be done.
As in the field of the Prophet Muhammad has been narrated as: When do you want it done in a good and comprehensive, because all of these things and applying them to the terminal properly defined and introduced. The rituals and synergies in all the structures of life and can not only considered for a job. In fact, the complexity and interaction of these rituals and synergies at all levels of life, the production and reproduction of consciousness have been required to do.
All types stories and poems of work, proverbs, tales, different cooperation, and other areas of the culture of the people, of the factors of establishing and strengthening the necessary motivation to have work done.
In fact, this type of literature which reflects the viewpoint of society to the unemployed person is, at the same time, it keeps people from unemployment or underemployment and creating an interest, invites him to work. Oral literature available in the community, as a collective soul acts.
Samples referred to in oral literature and evidence of involvement and interest in the work and the people against the valuations, care work, and dedication to the plane. When the collective spirit and determination of such judgments based on people during growth, the values that are intrinsic to them at any time, respect, and more than ever they are attached.
In these concepts, there is a kind of valentine society from generation to generation, is under way and people. Interest and interest components that work ethic is an important component in the past, was seen in a variety of work-related oral literature. Perhaps one of the manifestations of it can be found in work songs. Music and song includes the lyrics that people read the work.
The results of this study were: Consciousness affects job performance.
The positive climate could increase this effect. Thus, organizations and managers can evaluate the personality traits of their employees, especially their consciousness, to create a positive atmosphere in the organization use. Archana study  showed that social support and control as well as job stress and there is consciousness. This means that people with high consciousness always concerned with work, job, and their duties are correct.
This mainly concerns and how supervision and discipline of the society and the organization of individual stems. Since the objective of this study was to investigate the role of mediator in the relationship between climate and organizational commitment is job consciousness in [Figure 1] the basic model of the relationship between variables is given. For this purpose, the theoretical assumption as the model assumed that after evaluating the relationships among the variables, parameters, and finally model is estimated.
Theoretical and conceptual model of the relationship between variables Methods The study is a correlation study conducted by stepwise regression analysis and path analysis were used. The population in this study were all employees Azad University of Yazd inthe subjects were randomly selected and classified in accordance with the proportion of the population, were surveyed. In order to collect information on the main variables in this study, questionnaires were used as follows: In the case of climate variables: Organizational climate questionnaire Halpin and Croft.
Eight behavioral dimensions of organizational climate questionnaire that staff and managers, including team spirit, harassment, interest, intimacy, observant, getting away, the influence and dynamism, and the emphasis on production is in the back. The questionnaire was standardized in by Doshmanziare and its validity is confirmed. The questionnaire includes 24 questions on three dimensions of organizational commitment standards and affective commitment, continuous commitment, and normative commitment or duty.
Organizational commitment questionnaire has been a standard and reliable and have been used by local researchers and its validity and reliability have been measured. Questionnaire design conscience by Iraj Soltani. The validity of the internal control tools in research and has been approved by experts. To organize and summarize the data descriptive statistics mean, standard deviation and … was used to examine the relationship between variables in inferential statistics stepwise regression was used.
