Abstract

Job satisfaction and its influences is one of the most popular studies within the business world, particularly human resource management practice. Organizational culture, specifically task-orientated organizational culture, and its effect on job satisfaction within the food and beverage sector is grossly understudied, thus the primary objective of this research is to contribute to academic discussion surrounding this topic and aid in the filling of this research gap. Secondly, this study has identified core components of task-orientated organizational culture that possess influence on job satisfaction. Lastly, this research encourages the creation of the beginnings of an answer to the degree and nature of relationship between job satisfaction and task-orientated organizational culture within the food and beverage sector. This study was conducted using Likert scaled (see appendix A, illustration 1) quantitative surveys to assess the impact of task-orientated organizational culture on job satisfaction, later the mediators’ effects (task autonomy, organizational support) on this relationship. Data was gathered and later analysed using Pearson’ Correlation via use of SPSS software. Surprising links were discovered between job satisfaction, task-orientated organizational culture, task autonomy and organizational support. Results show that task-orientated organizational culture and job satisfaction possess no relationship, but task autonomy as a mediator alters this relationship to a strong negative one. Contrarily, organizational support as a mediator morphs this relationship to a moderate positive relationship all within the food and beverage sector.
