Organizational Behavior

Organizational behavior is the study of how individuals and groups interact within an organization and how these interactions affect an organization’s performance toward its goal or goals. The field examines the impact of various factors on behavior within an organization.

The focus of organizational behavior tends to center around employee productivity. For example, organizational behavior studies have shown that employees who feel valued and appreciated tend to be more motivated and productive, leading to increased profits for the organization. However, organizational behavior can also focus on the ways in which organizations can better manage, change and improve behavior in order to achieve desired outcomes (i.e., productivity, employee well-being, or workplace satisfaction).
