Program Title: Analysis of Employees' Performance & Their Job Satisfaction in an Organization - with Reference to F.C. Industries, Bathinda Road, Jaitu (District-Faridkot), Punjab, India
A healthy relation between the employees and managers improves the productivity and efficiency of the organisation. Thus, Managers have a great responsibility to develop a strong relationship with their employees and achieve the desired goals of the organisation. Emotionally intelligent employees easily understand the needs of the customers as well as their managers and provide them better services.
This research analysed the relationship between emotional intelligence, job performance and emotional satisfaction among employees in a small organisation of Faridkot district of Punjab, India. This study has taken Hawthorne study conducted by Elton Mayo in 1914-15 in G.E.Company in USA as the reference to analyse the gap between the different aspects of emotional intelligence within the organisation. The findings of the discussion show that the employees are influenced by social surroundings. Also the study of Hawthorne shows how human behaviour changes with the change in social surroundings.
