We know how great an effect the weather has on our mood and hence, our productivity. So it is with Organizational climate … it affects every employee.

The organizations have a psychological climate that might be described as the perceptions, feelings, and expectations that people have about their organization and work environment. Productivity and morale are higher when the psychological climate is positive, much more so than in negative psychological climates where much human energy is spent complaining, playing games, spreading rumors, and engaging in activities that produce “cognitive dissonance,” or mental conflict between perceptions of self-worth and organizational worth.
