Abstract:

This investigation aimed at determining the decision making style, job satisfaction, and perception of organizational climate among the administrators of Polytechnic State College in Western Visayas. It further aimed to ascertain how the administrators' decision making style and job satisfaction could be influenced by their perception of organizational climate and certain personal and school-related factors. This descriptive-correlational research utilized three published American-made instruments: Meyer-Briggs Type Indicator (1983, in Robbins, 1993) for decision making style, Weiss, Dawis, England, and Lofquit's Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (1967) for job satisfaction, and the Halpin and Croft's Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire (1963) for organizational climate. The participants of the study were the 45 school administrators chosen at random. To describe the data gathered, the means and standard deviations were used and the t-test for independent samples, the One-Factor Analysis of Variance, the Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis, and the Pearson's r set at .05 alpha level for a two-tailed test were employed as inferential statistics. Study results showed that, generally, the school administrators employed sensation as their decision making style, were satisfied in their jobs, and perceived the climate operating in their schools as average. No significant differences were noted in the decision making style, job satisfaction, and perception of organizational climate among the administrators classified according to certain categories. The administrators' decision making style, job satisfaction, and perception of organizational climate could not be significantly influenced by certain personal and school related factors. Finally, the administrators' decision making style, job satisfaction, and perception of organizational climate were not significantly correlated.
