The role of climate and job satisfaction

Abstract

This paper identifies the factors which determine the human resources reputation of firms involved in R&D. Reputation in this context refers to the extent to which employees regard their organization as a "good" place to work. The sample of 402 respondents was drawn from ten science-based firms. In terms of age, educational qualifications, and years of experience, the sample was representative of scientists employed in the ten organizations. Reputation is regarded as being of importance both conceptually and practically. Organizational reputation has been widely referred to in the literature, but it has not been consistently defined nor its determinants investigated systematically. Innovatory climate and job satisfaction are identified as the main determinants of reputation among R&D scientists.
