Need fulfillment and goal perceptions of managerial and supervisory hospital personnel Pold, Heinrich


The purpose of the present study was to examine some of the relationships between the level of performance and job satisfaction, goal perceptions, and value of rewards. The subjects for the study were the department managers and nursing supervisors of a small general hospital. Performance criteria for the subjects were obtained by convergent and discriminant analysis of superiors' ratings on a number of traits. The data obtained, indicated that the two groups of subjects, although working in the same organization, had quite dissimilar attitudes and perceptions. The findings were interpreted as manifestations of the different organizational micro-climates in which the two groups operated.
