By making the effort to apply organisational behaviour principles within the workplace, organisations can help themselves to be more successful. Organisations should pay attention to the following:

  • Actively manage change rather than just letting it happen.

  • Communicate well with the people in your organisation.

  • Manage your hiring, training, and assessment processes to get the best out of your employees.

  • Put as much emphasis on people issues as you do to other organisation issues. Your people are important to your business!

  • Treat people fairly; feeling unfairly treated worsens employee attitudes toward work, which can cause lots of problems for your organisation.
