Can you please tell me if my dissertation introduction looks OK? I am looking into expanding my HRM dissertation project.

With the recent poor economic climate in the UK and organisations looking to become leaner and fitter in a competitive market, it is therefore advantageous that organisations know how to enhance employee performance in order to maximise output. Many researchers have investigated employee performance and its relationship with both employee organisational commitment and job satisfaction. This dissertation focuses on a quantitative study undertaken to determine if a relationship exists between employee organisational commitment and job satisfaction. The Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) “short form” was used to measure employee levels of overall job satisfaction. Participants in the research included 264 employees from a large UK facilities management organisation. The employees were selected at random with an email sent out to approximately 500 employees within a small business unit of this organisation and varied from engineers/professionals, office clerks, service and sales staff. Results were analysed following guidance from both of the measuring instrument theories used. Microsoft Excel software was used to calculate the validity of the survey and basic statistical analysis. Detailed analysis was calculated using SPSS Statistics software. The results indicate that high level of satisfaction increases with higher levels of organisational commitment and concomitantly that the low levels of satisfaction decreases. No relationship was evident amongst employees with average levels of general satisfaction. Knowing the relationship between employee organisational commitment and employee job satisfaction will allow organisations to measure employee levels and adapt strategic local plans aimed at enhancing employee organisational commitment and satisfaction, which in turn can enhance employee performance and organisational outputs. The dissertation aims to provide the reader with an understanding of the relationship between employee OC and employee job satisfaction. Dissertation objectives;

Hi Gregory,
Thanks for sharing this. I think there is huge need to take drastic steps towards Employee job satisfaction and commitment towards Organization and individual benefits. I would like to add some more facts Like:
Regular feed-back for all employees regarding their job performance, taking up training section after thoroughly detailing about why training required and on what basis, basing on that organizing and implementing training program mes, also observing employee achievement through the training. how far it is effective and useful. regularly anyalyising employees performance through PMS system, proper usage of appraisals system, effective Recruitment and Selection theory, choosing people basing on job and duties designed. formal and informal meetings with employees, letting them participate in different activities, proper division and on- job work etc.
