Human Resources Practices and Work-Related Attitudes in Polish Public Administration
This paper reports findings from a questionnaire survey conducted among low-ranking public administration employees in the Polish region of Pomerania. It focuses on employee perceptions of human resources (HR) practices and whether they are positively correlated with job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Contrary to our a priori assumptions, respondents neither perceived HR practices as underdeveloped nor found themselves treated unfairly, dissatisfied with their jobs, and uncommitted to their organizations. In line with previous research, job satisfaction turned out to predict organizational commitment. Moreover, distributive justice, teamwork, and communication were found to positively affect job satisfaction and organizational commitment, and participation was positively associated with organizational commitment. Building on these insights, we discuss some policy implications and provide ideas for further research.
