Introduction

This paper creates a platform for an emphasis on the connection between the work organogram and the understanding, employee appraisal, and shaping of staff performance. Generally, the Performance of employees in present organizations can be critically analyzed by a phenomenon that is referred to as the seven key changes. This set of changes is attached to the nature of work in all sphere of business around the globe. Examples are changes in job design, scope of work, technology, workforce/labourforce, inductions and trainings, governance/ leadership, and the organizational structure with respect to the way in which job performance is measured. There are three human resources domain in every organization which are staffing, motivations and training & development. A situation whereby bad governance, low motivation and training is exercised in a departmental arm of any business organization, then the staff performance is relatively low. Modernization is an invariable requirement of any present business organization. This refers to innovations that comes first from dedicated employees, but must flood all the way through the organization. An organization could be considered as a learning center. Taking for example an Information system and telecoms department of an organization where a lot of configurations and installations of the telecoms equipments such as the Cisco routers and Cisco catalyst switches are carried out, integration from an existing technology to a newer version occurs. Information and knowledge ought to be liberally communal to enhance the growth of the company. Multiplicity is not meant to be only managed, but to be harvested as an essential ingredient for innovation. Leaders have to be behind the workforce, empowering them. Leading from the front is obsolete.

Abstract
The assumption of decisive work behavior integrates higher-order implicit goals with principles derived from the Five-Factor Model (FFM) of personality and the expanded job characteristics model to explain how traits and job characteristics jointly and interactively influence work outcomes. The core principle of the theory is that personality traits initiate purposeful goal strivings, and when the motivational forces associated with job characteristics act in concert with these purposeful motivational strivings, individuals experience the psychological state of experienced meaningfulness. In turn, experienced meaningfulness triggers task-specific motivation processes that influence the attainment of work outcomes. We describe testable propositions derived from the theory and discuss directions for future research. Explaining why people do what they do at work has been the goal of behavioral scientists for nearly 100 years. Although there are many different ways to address this complex question, ultimately, any answer includes a discussion of individual characteristics, such as personality and ability, and situational factors, such as job characteristics and the social context. In this article we focus on the motivational processes resulting from the joint effects of personality traits and task or social job characteristics in explaining work behavior. We refer the reader to excellent articles that examine the effects of general mental ability on work performance (e.g., Gottfredson, 1997; Lubinski, 2004; Schmidt & Hunter, 2004), which focus on processes associated with the acquisition of knowledge and the ability to learn; these are important determinants of job performance but are outside the scope of this article. Behavioral science researchers have focused on two major sets of distal determinants when seeking to explain an individual's motivation and subsequent work behavior: the effects of the person's dispositions and environmental circumstances. For example, there is substantial empirical research showing that individual differences in personality traits play important roles in predicting and explaining employee...
