Abstract:

The analysis of job attitudes can be helpful to commanders and functional managers by highlighting factors where improved leadership and management practices can impact performance and retention. Using the Leadership and Management Development Centers Organizational Assessment Package data base, this project compared the attitudes of contracting and manufacturing personnel to those of personnel in other Air Force career fields. Among its findings are that contracting and manufacturing personnel have a higher degree of general job satisfaction than do personnel in other career fields. However, it also identified less positive 65XX personnel attitudes about performance goals, feedback, training, autonomy, and work repetition for various personnel categories. The report recommends ways to capitalize on strengths and compensate for weakenesses in the 65XX career field. Author
