|Abstract:||We face management in every step. Management of employees in individual companies is a silver thread of successful operation of each and every company. A successful manager is a person understanding that their employees are also their colleagues, and communicates with them on a daily basis. Truly successful managers are the ones who think positively, are honest, resourceful in delicate situations, encourage communication among colleagues, are inspiration and role model for all employees, they never let their employees down and do not make false promises, are fair, they commend, they do not command, but teach them and guide them to the common objective – success.
Why should companies invest in employees and why should they attach a great importance to the commitment to work? Answer to these two questions is rather simple, since employees’ commitment is of key importance for the results of the successful company’s performance. If the company along with its managers strive for committed employees in the workplaces, it will be well on its way to a higher productivity, profitability, job security, customers’ loyalty, and successful growth of the company as a whole. With the committed employees, the company can be competitive in the market, and it will continuously grow and develop. Therefore, continuous investment in employees is necessary, as well as close monitoring for potential lack of commitment by the employees, since this can bring negative consequences for the entire company.
Employees can be committed, but they are not necessarily also satisfied and vice versa. Employees’ satisfaction is also an important factor of the company’s successful operation. Satisfied employees are more productive and more effective in the workplace compared to the employees who are not satisfied at work. Employees’ satisfactions and their commitment at work are reflected in company’s successfulness and growth. More and more successful companies are aware of the role of satisfaction at work, and put satisfaction of their employees in the forefront or in the first place. These kind of companies have a well-developed culture of operation that offers maximum support to the employees and is fair. Naturally, managers play an important role here. They have to be aware that only satisfied employee is a key to the satisfied customers and success.
In the theoretical part of the master’s thesis, based on findings of several authors, we present the field of management in companies, individual management styles, and present the field of commitment and satisfaction of employees at work. In the introductory part of the thesis, we set five hypotheses, which are further examined in the empirical part of the master’s thesis. Using these five hypotheses, we examined influence of the management style on commitment and satisfaction of the employees at work in the company X. In the empirical part, we first present the company X, which is followed by the results of the survey in the company X, as well as findings and suggestions. We established that the employees of the company X are mostly satisfied in their workplace. They are also partly commited to the work they perform. Most of the employees are satisfied with the prevailing management style, since the democratic management style prevails, which is also, according to theoretical starting points, employee-friendly management style. We also established that management style only partially statistically significantly influences the employees engagement, and it doesn't influence the employees satisfaction.|
