The Critical Dimensions of Job Satisfaction of Academicians: An Empirical Analysis
Anu Kohli and Alka Sharma

Academicians' turnover is mainly associated with job dissatisfaction. Most of the institutions today are faced with the challenge of retaining their academicians. Employee dissatisfaction leads to lower productivity, stress and conflict in the organization. Therefore, it is necessary for the organization to develop and ensure employee satisfaction. There are various factors affecting the job satisfaction of employees such as salary, working conditions, relationship with co-workers, promotional opportunities, etc. The purpose of this study was to determine the critical dimensions of job satisfaction for academicians. Data was collected from 150 academicians of professional courses in higher education institutions using stratified snowball sampling. Factor analysis using principal component analysis with varimax rotation was conducted. The result identified three dimensions, namely, work itself, work relations and employee-centric policies and principles as important dimensions of job satisfaction for the academicians. The findings of the study are significant for both the government and private higher educational institutions as by working on these dimensions, they can enhance academicians' satisfaction, which will ultimately lead to higher job commitment and overall development of the students.

The Moderating Role of Organizational Climate in Competency-Performance Relationship: A Study on Salespersons in Central India
Sushil Punwatkar and Manoj Verghese

The purpose of the paper is to investigate the relationship between competencies of salespersons (in organized retail outlets) and job performance and to test for the moderating role of organizational climate in that relationship. Data was collected using a questionnaire in a survey of consumers, supervisors and salespersons at various retail stores in Bhilai and Raipur, the tier-II cities of Chhattisgarh state in India, designed on the basic items relating to competencies, job performance and organizational climate. Hierarchical regression analysis of data from 245 respondents was used to test two hypotheses. The results show that salespersons' competencies are an antecedent of job performance. The impact of competencies on job performance is stronger and more significant when the organizational climate is favorable. If it is unfavorable, competencies do not project significant effect on job performance. This study extends previous research by examining the moderating role of organizational climate. Further research is indicated to identify the other key moderators and mediators of the competencies in relation to salespersons' job performance. A 24-item competency assessment scale is developed in the study that can be applied in practice to measure salespersons' skill levels on various aspects and provide opportunity to managers to understand the skill gap and the way to fill them efficiently.

The Role of Job Crafting in Feedback-Performance Relationship: A Study of Supervisors and Managers of the Indian Railways
Sanapala S Srinivas and Karri Ashok

Self-determined work behaviors and job redesign strategies are characterized by autonomous regulation. They bear a marked influence on job performance. Job crafting in the form of employee level proactive reshaping of job characteristics at the cognitive, task, and relational levels has been found to mediate significantly between personal as well as contextual antecedents and various positive workplace outcomes such as work engagement and job performance. While feedback-performance relationship, directly and through various mediating factors like work engagement, has been examined in prior studies, there appears to be no published study exploring the mediating role of job crafting between feedback and performance. The current study tested, through Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), the influence of job crafting behaviors in the relationship between contextual factor of performance feedback and outcome variable of in-role performance. The study used sample data (N = 191) drawn from junior and middle managers and supervisors of the Indian Railways, a government organization. The study results support the hypothesized positive mediation effect of job crafting in the relationship between feedback and in-role performance in the sample population. Contribution to extant literature centered in job crafting and practical implications for the select organization and public organizations in India have been discussed.
