Employee Behavior and Organizational Performance in the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries Kampala-Uganda

ABSTRACT

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effects of employee behavior on organization performance in the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries in Uganda. The study was guided by the following objectives, to identify the causes of poor performance in the ministry, to examine the influence of employee behavior on performance of workers, and to establish the solutions to poor organisational performance in the ministry of Agriculture, Animal husbandry and fisheries. The study employed both quantitative and qualitative research design in its methodology. The study concluded that when employees have a trusting and congenial relationship with others in the workplace are able to perform well. Findings revealed that some employee issues are personal and not work-related. Punishing an employee without first finding out the underlying cause of his performance lapse can make the situation worse. Employers on the other hand must provide additional training to team members. The study finally recommended that there is need to conduct further research in order to determine the metrics to measure the organization’s performance.
