Abstract

Organizational culture is the collective behavior of employees who form the core of an organization. It is shaped by organization values, visions, norms, working language, systems, and symbol. It also includes beliefs and habits of employees. Employee morale describes the overall outlook, attitude, satisfaction, and confidence that employees feel at work. When employees are positive about their work environment and believe that they can meet their most important needs at work, their employee morale gets boosted up. Such a positive morale can lead to better organizational performance. But when employees are negative and unhappy about their workplace and feel that their work is not appreciated, their employee morale becomes negative or low. If the morale of the employees is low, the productivity of the company will be affected as employees will not be able to meet their goals. The prevailing culture in an organization can have an impact on the morale of the employees. The study was conducted in order to find out the Impact of Organizational culture on employee morale. From this study it was found that the culture existing in public sector undertakings is bureaucratic culture and the morale of the employees is low. But on further analysis it becomes clear that level of bureaucratic culture has no effect on employee morale. Results also pointed that employee morale vary among male and female employees. Level of morale was found to be more for male employees than their female counterparts.
