Abstract

Employee perspectives of their jobs, their managers and management-employee relationships at their places of work are important for two reasons. First, they help explain the current behaviour of some workers, such as lateness, absenteeism, or shirking on the job, all contributing to low worker productivity. Secondly, they help predict the future behaviour of all workers, notably their likelihood of quitting their present job.
