A Study on Employees Attitude towards Fringe Benefits
For any organization to compete favorably in the competitive society, employee’s attitudes and commitment towards work goes a long way in determining the employees’ performance and organization productivity. The main objective of this study is to examine the effect of incentives packages on employee’s attitudes towards fringe benefits. The results show that strong relationship exists between incentives packages and employee’s attitudes towards fringe benefits However, employers of labor and decision makers should endeavor to review incentives packages at various levels in order to earn employees’ commitment and satisfaction. This examination proposes that representative view of the advantages gave to them by their association can impact worker states of mind. Three factors that seem to impact the view of advantages by representatives are advantage fulfillment, advantage significance, and the apparent thought process of the association in giving the advantage to workers. Notwithstanding, it additionally creates the impression that a few advantages are seen as rights that are owed to workers by the association. This investigation proposes and tests a model of advantage discernment that fuses these elements. Results recommend that advantage fulfillment and the apparent thought process of the association in giving an advantage both have an immediate association with representative mentalities. The apparent right status of an advantage seems to direct this relationship. Compensation or Right: An Analysis of Employee “Fringe” Benefit Perception.
