ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: This study determined the status and level of satisfaction of work attitudes of employees of Saudi Aramco. The purposes of the hypotheses are tested in the determining the status and level of satisfaction of the manager, supervisors, business & systems analysts and rank in file in terms of personal, initiative and accountability attitudes. There is confusion and debate among practitioners on the topic of employee attitudes and job satisfaction even at a time when employees are increasingly important for organizational success and competitiveness. “Happy employees are productive employees.” “Happy employees are not productive employees.” We hear these conflicting statements made by HR professionals and managers in organizations. This research aims at establishing a level of satisfaction as a basis for employee attitude; whether strongly satisfied, satisfied, moderately satisfied, dissatisfied or strongly dissatisfied. Assessment of the Corporate Business Applications Department of Saudi Aramco in terms of the status and level of work attitudes has shown that the respondents agreed and were satisfied with the status of work attitudes of employees of Saudi Aramco in terms of personal attitudes, initiative attitudes and accountability attitudes. It indicated that there was no significant relationship between the status and the level of satisfaction of work attitudes of employees of Saudi Aramco in terms of personal attitudes, initiative attitudes, and accountability attitudes.
