ABSTRACT Long-term unemployment has negative consequences for the individual, society and a country‟s economic system. People who are unemployed for a long period find it more difficult to be employed as time goes by and has effect on their behaviours when they should even secure a job. The study examined the indirect effect of unemployment on employee‟s attitude to work. The study was conducted using the staff of Aramex Ghana Limited with a population of forty (40) employees, inclusive of management to investigate whether long-term unemployment of others influences employees‟ attitude to work. The study used a mixed method approach where data was obtained via quantitative mode using survey instrument as well as face-to-face interview. A sample of 30 employees inclusive of management were used for the study. The purposive sampling and the convenience sampling modes were adopted in obtaining respondents by following basic ethical guide in research. The findings of the study indicated that unemployment has no negative impacts on employee‟s attitudes to work at Aramex Ghana Limited. However findings revealed that Aramex Ghana Limited may experience high employee turnover in years to come due to poor conditions at work. This is because majority of the employees have intentions of finding new jobs in other organizations, which may be as a result of employees‟ quest for growth or change in future. The study recommends that management should initiate and promote job activities that alleviate boredom and also concentrate on promoting organizational careers for the employees at Aramex Ghana Ltd. The study finally concludes that work attitude factors such as job security, opportunity for advancement, competitive salaries are all important motivators that have strong potentials to ensure positive work attitudes of employees.
