Volume 9 No.1 January-March 2019 pp 71-75
The purpose of this research was to study the effect of organisational climate on employees motivation using a Structural Equation Model (SEM) with the help of AMOS. The study has employed with an exploratory and descriptive questionnaire. Data collected from 266 qualified and permanent library and information science professionals of selected eight state universities of Kerala. Employees motivation was measured as composite variable from six components and organisational climate is also represented as latest variable formed from six components. The model is found to be adequately fit. The study reveals that all components of organisational climate and employees motivation have significant contribution in the university libraries of Kerala. From the result it can be inferred that orgnisational climate has significant positive effect on employees motivation. It is concluded that policy should be formulated by giving more importance to the factors affecting employees motivation so as to improve functioning of university libraries.
