This also promotes positive behavior amongst employees which ultimately will result in strategic advantages for the organization (Hitt, Miller & Colella, 2006). The second step is to create a culture where employees want to work and are empowered to make decisions. To do this, the culture of an organization should be developed from the top down. Management should outline the expectations of "shared values, beliefs, and norms that influence the way employees think, feel, and behave" (George & Jones, 2005, p535).

The process of work motivation can initiate performance of employees (Clark, 2003). The best approach to fostering motivation has shown to be the satisfaction of the employees (Heathfield, 2014). Employees are more likely to engage in work when they know what to expect from the work, are given the resources to complete the tasks, are given ample opportunities to grow their own knowledge and within the company, have moderate feedback about their work, and feel like they are an asset to the organization (Shuck, & Wollard, 2008).

Managers become more fulfilled and productive themselves as they learn to count on their staffs and are freed up to attend to more strategic issues. Delegating is a critical skill for supervisors. Delegating involves working with an employee to establish goals, granting them sufficient authority and responsibility to achieve the goals, often giving them substantial freedom in deciding how the goals will be achieved, remaining available as a resource to help them achieve the goals, assessing their performance, addressing performance issues and/or rewarding their performance. Ultimately, the supervisor retains responsibility for the attainment of the goals, but chooses to achieve the goals by delegating to someone else.

Evaluations of desired behaviour helps organisations to retain goal alignment, or improve where need be. Fiorenza (2007) found that the evaluations programs that are created with direct input from employees and managers tend to be the most successful systems used, as they increase ownership and commitment. Growth and acquaintance of new skills is enhanced, individuals get to learn and know where they need improvement (Mujtaba, 2008).

This can be the reason why the interviewee found it to be a fair practise that the company ensures recognition to individuals that outperform the desired target of cases.
If management are able to develop an understanding of what motivates employees to learn, train and perform optimally as individuals through the use of OB concepts then management will enhance not only their own success but also their employees. In conclusion, I would reiterate that OB is very important for anyone to know. There are a lot of useful information within OB for people to apply to their lives. OB can help an individual in the skills of communicating well, listening well, and interacting well. Then for management, OB provides the necessary tools to help understand the different types of people within the company and the possible ways in dealing with the employees.
