EFFECT OF SALARIES AND WAGES ADMINISTRATION ON EMPLOYEE’S ATTITUDE TO WORK IN AN ORGANIZATION

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Wage and salary administration is a critical factor in determining the success or failure of any organization. This system of motivating workers is very important for every organization to take proper consideration through salaries and wages as a factor of motivation can work to some extent, which means they have limitations in motivating workers to effectively if not applied properly.

According to Edward Flippo (2002), one of the most important aspects of managing an organization’s employees (also known as personal management) is the planning, organizing, directing, and controlling of procurement, development compensation, integration, maintenance, and separation of human resources in order to achieve individual, organizational, and societal goals. Wayne F. Cascio (2000) states that ‘compensation which involves direct cash payment, indirect payments in the form of employees benefits and incentives to motivates employees to strive for higher level of productivity is what is meant by salaries and wages. It is also an important aspect of the working relationship. A good compensation package (salaries and wages) is a good motivator; thus, the manager’s primary responsibility is to ensure that the company’s employees are well paid. According to John Wales (2007), money is a factor that can lead to dissatisfaction if it is not present in sufficient quantities, but it can also lead to essential satisfier or positive motivation. It is applied appropriately. As a result, the purpose of this research is to investigate the factors that contribute to.

Human resource management entails a series of activities that revolve around the job, the individual, and change. It is focused on efficiency and the integration of people into effective organizations in order to achieve abstract organizational goals.

Objectives Some of the major activities of human resource management include: recruitment, selection, placement, wages and salaries, staff development, and so on. In business, the term “salaries” has come to be associated with white-collar administrative staff who are not paid by the hour, and the term “wages” has come to be associated with manual workers who are paid by the hour. Salaries and wages are payments made to employees in exchange for the work they do or the services they provide. Salaries and wages are intended to motivate employees, which is not always the case, despite the fact that

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

A lack of understanding of employees’ work behavior and attitudes toward such work has caused a number of issues in society. Most managers and employees believe that paying employees’ salaries and wages on time is the most important factor in motivating them to work. Another issue that people claim to understand is that there is what is known as intrinsic reward, which motivates employees to work rather than the salaries and wages they are paid. Employees are primarily concerned with wages and salaries (extrinsic reward) as well as job satisfaction (intrinsic reward), and not just how far salaries and wages can affect employee attitudes.

1.3       RESEARCH QUESTIONS

1. To what extent have salary and wages influenced employee performance in an organization?

2. Can salaries and wages alone satisfy employees in a company?

3. Can salary motivate employees more than intrinsic rewards?

4. How much influence does salary and wage administration have on employee attitudes?

5. How have salary and wages influenced worker performance improvement?

1.4       OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

It is one thing to be blessed with an abundance of human resources; it is quite another to manage these resources in order to achieve stated goals. No organization can hope to move or improve positively without the effort of its employees, and as such, fair salaries or wages are a must for improved worker performance. They made a significant contribution to the organization’s improved performance. As a result, among other things, this study aims to achieve the following goals:

(1) To ascertain the relationship between salaries and wages and employee productivity in a company.

(2) To measure if a day work: earning is directly proportional to the time worked but rates are graded. This is mostly applied to employees

1.5       RESEARCH HYPOTHESES

The following hypotheses are proposed for the purposes of this study:

(a) That the organization’s salaries and wages have no significant relationship with employee attitudes (Ho)

segimonssegimonss Salary (Hi)

(b) There are no deficiencies in the provision of worker salaries and wages as of the due date (Ho)

There are gaps in the provision of worker salaries and wages when they are due (Hi).

(c) In an organization, salary and wage administration is unimportant (Ho)

Wage and salary administration is critical in any organization (Hi)

(d) Employee development is not based on salaries and wages (Ho)

Wages and salaries are used to improve workers.

1.6   SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

The researcher hopes that by the end of this study, those who come across this research work will understand the importance of salaries and wages administration, as well as their role in the organization. Students and workers in business organizations may find the recommendation at the end of the study useful if they follow it strictly.. the study useful, if they can strictly adhered to it.

1. 7    LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
