Effect of Organizational Culture on Employee Performance: A Survey of Selected Public Sector Organizations in Enugu (Published)
Employee performance is significantly impacted by organizational culture because it helps employees match their goals with the organization’s overarching objectives. This helps ensure that public organizations uphold their obligation to provide end users with necessary services. This study’s main goal is to explore the relationship between organizational culture and employee performance. It does this by employing both descriptive and exploratory research designs using both primary and secondary instruments to collect data. 100 employees of the Enugu State Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, the Enugu State Civil Service Commission, the Enugu State Economic Planning Commission, and the Office of the Head of Service completed a structured questionnaire that served as the primary data source. While secondary data came from government papers, textbooks, the internet, and journal publications. Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (IBM SPSS) was used to analyze the collected data and evaluate the hypotheses. The analysis’s findings indicate that organizational norms have a significant impact on employee commitment within an organization in terms of professional growth and development, recognition and rewards for good performance, clear communication of the organization’s goals and values, and a positive work environment. Additionally, a well-structured work routine has a significant impact on how much work is completed by employees by improving productivity, time management, and work quality. The study makes the urgent recommendation that the Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) under review establish and uphold strong organizational norms that encourage employee commitment with a particular focus on professional growth and development, recognition and reward for good performance, clear communication of organizational goals and values, and a positive work environment that fosters performance. It’s important for leaders to be aware of their preferred styles and to adapt them as necessary to create a positive and productive work environment. Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) should promote employee delivery on workload with a view to ensuring productivity, time management, and adaptability.
