2Attitude and Job Satisfaction on Motivation of Employee2Impacts of Attitude and Job Satisfaction on Motivation of Employees at Work.In the business world, management structure determines the behaviors attitudes, dispositions andEthics that create the work culture (Colquitt,et al., 2011), so we can relate organization with workand behavior with actions. Organizational Behavior is the field of study that researches the actionof people at work. “It is a human tool for human benefits” (Pinder, 2014); it can be classified intofour areas: People, Structure, Technology, and environment. When People join the organization toaccomplish the goals/objective, some Structure is required. They use machinery gadget andtechnology to achieve the organizational goals. All the same, they are influenced by externalenvironment (Pinder, 2014).According to Kinicki and Kreitner (2012) Organization does not accomplish anything. Plans don’taccomplish anything either. Theories of Management don’t much matter. Endeavors succeed orfail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people that an organizationaccomplishes great deeds. It’s individuals who count. Therefore, Organizational Behavior is theinterdisciplinary science of looking at people’s behavior in organizations and trying toorganizations and seeks to understand it. So, it includes the whole batch of relatively powerfulideas such as human perception and how that affects people’s behavior, the role of personality inone's behavior in a system, the leadership process, conflict process, and the motivational process.That means that it uses the scientific method to establish the truth and to validate its theories. Theconcern is, first, with the behavior and nature of the people within organizations and, second, withthe behavior and nature of organizations within their environments (Miner, 2015).

Organizational behaviorAttitudinal and Behavioural EntitiesAttitudinal and behavioral entities may be viewed as consisting of four different elements: theaction, the target at which the action is directed, the context on which the action is performed, andthe time at which it performed (Carver and Scheier, 2012). Attitudes are everywhere around us;because attitudes are some evaluative statement, and with them, we at least say “how do we feelabout something?”Employee attitude involves the ways an organization behaves which include the generalassociation of the management with the employees whereas job satisfaction happens when theemployee is happy with the work and its environment. Some studies have identified job attitudeand job satisfaction to be significant in the motivation of the employees at the workplace(Herzberg, Mausner, and Snyderman, 2011; Parvin and Kabir, 2011; Skaalvik, M. and Skaalvik,S., 2011). The attitude and psychological aspect of the workers are either positively or negativelyaffected by the management practices which in turn influence job satisfaction and motivation
4Attitude and Job Satisfaction on Motivation of Employee4(Solnet, Kralj, and Kandampully, 2012). Some of the impacts of the attitude and job satisfaction onthe motivation of the employee include employees’ performance, (Stoyanov, 2017), organizationalcommitment, employee engagement/involvement, job satisfaction and job involvement.Attitudes are created out of componentsThe most basic one is a cognitive component; this is an evaluation, a description of or belief in theway things are, “I have got a job, and I express my cognitive component of an attitude I evaluatethat my pay is low.” No emotions; here there is no action is taken out of this belief. Anotherelement is an effective component, and here an employee is going to express his/her feeling aboutthe belief; this is emotional or feeling segment of an attitude, “I am angry over my salary becauseit is a little.” In the end, there is a behavioral component; this is an action, intention to behave in acertain way toward someone or something .so “I am going to look for another job that gives me agood salary” (Petty and Brinol, 2010). The question is why our attitudes still so important tomotivation at work? The behavior or organizational behavior follows attitudes, the employeeswithin the organization have some attitudes, and it’s going to influence or decide the determinewhat kind of behave they are going to haveHow can behavior follow attitudes?At first, employees had some attitude which is what they believe, let’s say: “they have had anattitude that the company salary is good, the working hours are clear...etc.” Now what kind ofbehavior they will go to perform, “they will stay at this company and develop them self.” this is anaction, the activity.
