Organizational culture and employees' job satisfaction as mitigated by gender, level of education, and longevity in a bureaucratic oriented culture

by Paul, Mannixs E., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2012, 222 pages; 3499762


The objective of this study was intended to examine whether organizational culture and job satisfaction are directly interrelated, and determine the influence of certain demographics (gender, longevity, and education) in a civic workforce. The research study utilizes two validated quantitative surveys, Organizational Culture Questionnaire (Harrison and Stoke, 1992), and the short form of Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire (Weiss, Davis, England, and Lofquist, 1967) to assess the municipal workforce perception. The study response rate was 85% based on the targeted sampling population among six municipal agencies, which constitutes 19.84% of the overall workforce of a local government council. The data analysis of the study includes a descriptive analysis, correlation, and linear regression. The findings of the study revealed that there are significant correlations between the four bureaucratic cultural orientations (power culture, role culture, achievement culture, and supportive culture), employee job satisfaction, and other demographics, such as gender, longevity, and level of education.
