Evaluation of factors influence on employee satisfaction: Case Study of TESCO PLC

 

According to the ideas of O’Malley (2000), a Labour force of an organisation is treated as the main driving force of an organisation. Therefore most of the business organisations in the recent markets, tend to make a great weight on the human resources policies, to properly place their employee related functions. The findings of the Herman (1999), illustrate that, the employees can make a great impact on the customers related activities, as they are directly taking the business to the customers, by exchanging ideas with them. Therefore the level of employee satisfaction is very essential, especially to maintain a positive image of the business through employee engagement. Kreisman (2002), presented that the level of satisfaction of employees can be created through several strategies. Further he argued that, these influential factors of satisfaction should be varied accordingly, based on the nature of the employee as well as the nature and capability of the business.

 

Under this aspect, the talent of the organisation is to correctly place the appropriate influencing factors for the employee motivation, to maintain and retain their workforce. This study is conducted along this path, by analysing the actual proceedings of Tesco PLC, with respect to their existing factors used for the satisfaction of their employees. Based on the identified facts of the employee satisfaction and the recognised theoretical aspects have collaborated together to critically analyse the practical as well as theoretical background of the employee satisfaction emerged within the business context.
