EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report analyzes the practical implication and analysis of some of the important aspects of Organizational Behavior in two organizations - Buddha Air and Yeti Airlines and presents some recommendations on motivation, use of technology and other aspects. The analysis and interpretation of the report is solely based on the small survey, questionnaire limited to few aspects of OB and interviews with the manager of the organizations.

The major content of this report is based on the analysis of the impact of biographical characteristics on employee output, ability job fit, personality and organization fit, comparison of motivational practices, desirable and non desirable behavior of employee at work. Regarding our analysis, we have tried to compare our results with general view. In some cases, it showed similarity and in some cases there were contrasting results.

To motivate employees, both the organizations use the practices of giving bonuses, fringe benefits, festival leaves and allowances, regular job rotation, trainings, appraisal system and others.

The desirable behavior in both the organizations can be numerated as time and efficiency concern, commitment to duty, initiative and resourceful, dependability, willingness and readiness to perform, interpersonal skills, personal effectiveness where some of the undesirable behaviors were indiscipline, unreliability, job incompetency, unethical behaviors, unsystematic and unorganized approach to job.
