Using a quantitative survey and questionnaire research design, data were collected from university employees and teachers in Kabul. This study confirms earlier research by revealing a strong and positive association between Job Satisfaction and Employee Productivity. Task Variety showed a potential negative impact, while Organizational Culture had a positive and statistically significant influence. Autonomy and Workload Balance had limited and non-significant effects. Motivation had no statistically significant influence, according to the mediation study. Also, Moderation analysis did not find evidence of Work Experience playing a significant role. The research highlights the importance of promoting job satisfaction and positive organizational culture for enhancing Employee Productivity in this context. The study recommends that educational institutions in Afghanistan prioritize efforts to enhance job satisfaction and foster a positive organizational culture to optimize Employee Productivity. Further research should explore additional factors and potential interventions to comprehensively address productivity concerns in this unique context.</em> <em>While this research provides valuable insights, it also acknowledges the need for further exploration. Future research endeavors should delve into additional factors that may impact Employee Productivity within the unique context of Afghanistan's educational sector. Additionally, interventions and strategies to comprehensively address productivity concerns warrant further investigation, ensuring a holistic and tailored approach to enhancing workplace effectiveness in this specific setting.</em></p> Azatullah Zaheer, Abdullah, Hedayatullah Copyright (c) 2023 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1207 Fri, 08 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 "The Role of Education in Professional Skills Development in Quantity Surveying: Students’ Perspective on the Curriculum of Nigerian Tertiary Institutions" https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1260 <p><em>A synergistic relationship between education and professional skills is a necessary and fundamental requirement in quantity surveying. The curriculum content of higher institutions offering quantity surveying must therefore align with the skill set required by quantity surveyors. This research evaluates the effectiveness of the curriculum of quantity surveying in Nigerian tertiary institutions, the apathy of students towards the course, and their challenges. Using the survey research strategy, this study was carried out within institutions of higher learning offering quantity surveying in Rivers State, Imo, and Lagos. Archival data sets were collected, and questionnaires were distributed to quantitative surveying students within the study areas. The study outcome reveals that the current curriculum is insufficient for training students at the undergraduate level and does not impart the necessary skill set needed to embark on their professional careers as quantity surveyors. The study findings also reveal the reasons for the apathy and challenges faced by students offering quantity surveying in Nigerian tertiary institutions. These include poor orientation, methods of lecturing, a lack of student-lecturer relationships, the unwillingness of students to learn, and a lack of practical classes or regular site visits. The study findings also emphasized the students’ perspective on the need for or options in quantity surveying, incorporating information technology (IT), a specialty and a restructuring of the curriculum. A systematic review of the quantity surveying curriculum in institutions of higher learning is thus necessary to achieve educational and professional synergy in Nigeria. The Core Curriculum Minimum Academic Standard (CCMAS) mandated by the National University Commission (NUC) is thus a Just-in-time response to the educational gaps existing in the current curriculum of quantity surveying programmes offered in Nigerian universities.</em></p> Amadi Alolote , Amieye Dapiriteye Copyright (c) 2023 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1260 Mon, 18 Dec 2023 00:00:00 +0000 IMPACT OF SOFT SKILLS TRAINING IN THE WORKPLACE: A STUDY https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1181 <p><em>Both the market and the educational landscape are changing rapidly. Earlier, soft skills were not given as much importance as they are today in the workplace. Previously, previously only experience and knowledge mattered to the organization for an employee, but today, with experience and knowledge, soft skills also matter a lot in the workplace. Hard skills indicate that employers value your technological expertise and experience, but soft skills indicate your capacity to advance within a firm and collaborate well with others. They also help in building connections and resolving issues so that we can make a positive contribution to our team and organization. Despite the fact that soft skills are so important, many colleges of management are reluctant to include soft-skills instruction in their management degree curricula. This essay is based on a comparative empirical study between students who frequently participate in soft skills training and those who don't.</em></p> Bhumika Samal, Ms. Garima, Ms. Manju Copyright (c) 2023 Nolegein - Journal of Organizational Behavior and Management https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1181 Sat, 12 Aug 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Role of HR in Employee’s Happiness at Work: Literature Review https://mbajournals.in/index.php/JoOBM/article/view/1217 <p><em>Happiness has gained growing attention in psychological studies in the form of good moods and feelings, well-being and optimistic attitudes. Therefore, employee happiness or well- being is an emerging subject in both management and psychology. Happiness at the workplace means people’s happiness with their job.

In order to maintain a supportable culture of business, employee happiness is important. </em><em>Happier employee, in many different respects, tend to outperform less happy employee. Many of the principles for employee forecasting happiness at work requires fellowship, interaction, mercy and love.
