FEATURES OF ADMINISTRATIVE WORK CULTURE

FEATURES OF ADMINISTRATIVE WORK CULTURE
The basic features of an administrative work culture are:
1. Level of discretion, the extent to which an individual is given independence and
autonomy in interpreting and implementing LRR.
2. People orientation, the extent to which larger public interest is taken into
consideration in a decision.
3. Outcome orientation, the balance between the outcomes and the processes to
achieve these outcomes.
4. Mechanisms of control, the number and potency of supervisory elements that
regulate an administrative action.
5. Sense of identity, the extent to which an individual identifies with the work as a
whole rather than only with some of its domains.
6. Recognition of merit, the extent to which merit would be rewarded or nonperformance would be tolerated.
7. Communication patterns, the extent to which inter and intra-organisational
communication channels are open or restricted.
