Which of the following employee characteristics have the greatest impact on employee behavior: general attitudes, job satisfaction, emotions and moods, personality, values, or perception? Provide a rationale for your choice. Week 1 Question 1 I believe that each of the employees characteristics have impacts on the employee behavior. I also think that the job satisfaction is the most important of all because dissatisfied employees has lower work performance standards, also this can have an effect on the other employees within the work environment. The more an employee enjoys his or her line of business the more effort he or she will show within great work performance. If an employee does not like his or her career then this can show up negatively as well in his or her work performance. Often times employees might be miserable with his or her job position or obligations and this can also affect one’s attitude concerning his or her position. An employee’s job happiness can also have a unenthusiastic effect on an employee’s personality, and emotions. According to Robbins and Judge (2011), emotions are strong feelings pointed at someone or something. If a problem occurs within a work environment an individual’s emotions could be affected by the situation or someone that caused the situation. Also according to the text an attitude is the way an individual feels about a situation or someone’s attitude will have a positive or negative affect concerning that situation. Robbins, S.
