Abstract

This research was set to determine the effects of Participatory Decision Making on Employee Satisfaction in Afghanistan International Bank. The core objective of this research is to determine the effects of participation in decision making on employee satisfaction among Afghanistan International Bank staff members. The study also examines the impact of employee commitment, organizational structure, leader behavior, academic level, and workplace on the job satisfaction of the staff. The importance of collaborative management empowering the member of the workforce today is one of the core tasks of managers. The general population of the study comprises employees of Afghanistan International Bank (AIB). The information gathered in this study consists of primary data and secondary data including articles, previous research, and websites. SPSS 24 software was used to analyze the information. Regression analysis was used to accept or reject the hypotheses and determine the relationship between personnel participation in decision making and job satisfaction. The results show that employee involvement in decision making has a positive effect on job satisfaction, while bank employees still participate in the decision making on average. The results also show that employee commitment, organizational structure, leader behavior, and the workplace are among the factors that produce a positive impact on participation in decision making and the level of education endures no relationship with participation in decision making.
