ABSTRACT Climate for an organization is somewhat like the personality for a person. Just as everyindividual has a personality that makes each person unique, each organization has anorganizational climate that clearly distinguishes its personality from other organization. Everyorganization is different and has a unique feeling and character beyond its structuralcharacteristics. Thus every organization deals with its member in a distinct way through itspolicies on allocations of resources, communication pattern, reward and penalty, leadership anddecision making style, etc. This study helps to find out the existing climate of the organizationand also it is used to find out the attitude of the employees towards the organization. This study is conducted on entire organization with the sample size of 120 chosen bystratified disproportionate convenient sampling technique. The detailed survey is conductedthrough a structured questionnaire. The data collected through questionnaire are tabulated andthe information is interpreted in pie, bar and column charts. Statistical tools like Chi-square,Interval Estimation, Percentage Analysis, Weighted Average and two ways ANOVA are alsoapplied to reveal the indirect information.
INTRODUCTION The climate is a relatively enduring quality of the organization which is experienced byits members; it has an effect on their behavior, and how the organization functions. We measuredthe organizational climate using seven concepts: trust, morale, conflict, rewards equity, leadercredibility, and resistance to change. Organizational climate is comprised of mixture of norms, values, expectations, policiesand procedures that influence work motivation, commitment and ultimately, individual and workunit performance. Positive climate encourages, while negative climates inhibits discretionaryeffort. „Organizational climate‟ refers to the quality of working environment. If people feel thatthey are valued and respected within the organization, they are more likely to contributepositively to the achievements of the business outcomes. Creating a healthy organizationalclimate requires attention to the factors which influence employee‟s perceptions, including thequality of leadership, the way in which decisions are made and whether the efforts of employeesare recognized. In fact “Climate may be thought of as the perceptions of the characteristics of anorganization”. “Climate for an organization is somewhat like the personality for a person. Just as everyindividual has a personality that makes each person unique, each organization has anorganizational climate that clearly distinguishes its personality from other organization. Everyorganization is different and has a unique feeling and character beyond its structuralcharacteristics. Thus every organization deals with its member in a distinct way through itspolicies on allocations of resources, communication pattern, reward and penalty, leadership anddecision making style, etc. The organizational policy and conviction with regard to all these anda cluster of other related activities influence the feelings, attitudes and behavior of its membersand results in the creation of the unique organizational climate.
1.1 NEED OF THE STUDY Organizational climate has a major influence on human performance through its impact on individual motivation and job satisfaction. The major necessity for this study is to understand the working environment of this organization. Organizational climate provides a type of work environment in which individuals feels satisfied or dissatisfied. Since satisfaction of individual goes a long way in determining his efficiency, organizational climate can be said to be directly related with his performance in the organization. So this study is used to find out the performance level of employees. Employees expect certain rewards, penalties, satisfaction or frustrations based on the organizational climate and their expectations tend to lead to motivation. There is a contingency relationship between climate and the organization. So this study is very important to understand the existing culture of the organization. Organizational climate represents the entire social system of a work-group. So through this study we can understand the behaviors of the employees in the organization.
1.2 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDYPrimary objective To study the organizational climate prevailing in the Organization.Secondary objective To understand the working environment in GVN hospital To study the autonomy of employees within the organization To suggest measures to create better organizational climate than the existing.
1.3 SCOPE OF THE STUDY A high level of organizational climate is necessary for the development of organization.Good climate attracts good and efficient to the organization, who contribute to the productivityof the organization.

So this study mainly focused on the factors like working environment, autonomy of theemployees within the organization, inter-personal relationship among the employees within theorganization, rewards and benefits provided by the organization, appreciation and recognitionwithin the organization.
1.4 LIMITATIONS Opinions of employees may be biased at time. The sample size consists of 30 among 500 employees. Finding of the study has its own limitations. The results obtained from the responses fits to this unit alone and cannot be extended or fit to the universe.
2.0 REVIEW OF LITERATURERESEARCH STUDIES ON ORGANIZATONAL CLIMATE Schneider and Bartlett (1968) had proposed four organizational climate dimensions, 1) Individual autonomy: based on the factors of the individual responsibility, agent interdependence, rules orientation and opportunities for exercising individual initiative. 2) The degree of structure imposed upon the position: based on the factors of structure, managerial structure and the closeness of supervision. 3) Reward orientation: based upon the factors of reward, general satisfaction, promotional-achievement orientation, and being profit minded and sales oriented. 4) Consideration, warmth and support: based upon the factors of managerial support, nurturing of subordinates and warmth and support. James and Jones (1974) conducted a major review of the theory and research on organizational climate ad identified climate in three separate ways that were not mutually exclusive, 1. Multiple measurement – organizational attribute approach 2. Perceptual measurement – organizational attribute approach 3. The perceptual measurement – individual attribute approach In the multiple measurement organizational approach james and jones cite forehand and Gilmer as defining organizational climate as a defining organizational climate as a “set of characteristics that describe an organization and that distinguish the organization from other organizations are relatively enduring over time and influence the behavior of people in the organization. In reviewing psychological climate as a set of perceptually based, psychological attributes Jones and James (1979) noted that the process reflected the developments that had occurred in the conceptualization of climate and the nature of its major influences. They propose that psychological climate: (a) refers to the individual‟s cognitively based description of the situation;
(b) involves a psychological processing of specific perceptions into more abstract depictions of the psychologically meaningful influences in the situation;(c) tends to be closely related to situational characteristics that have relatively direct and immediate ties to the individual experience; and(d) is multidimensional, with a central core of dimensions that apply across a variety of situations(through additional dimensions might be need to better describe particular situations. Hansen and Wernerfelt (1989) found that organizational climate factors explain about twice as much variance in profit rates as economic factors. Denison (1990) found that an organizational climate that encourages employee involvement and empowerment in decision-making predicts the financial success of the organization. Schneider (1996) found that service and performance climates predict customer satisfaction. Ekvall (1996) found a positive relationship between climates emphasizing creativity and innovation and their profits. Thompson (1996) found that companies utilizing progressive human resource practices impacting climate such as customer commitment, communication, empowerment, innovation, rewards and recognition, community involvement/environmental responsibility, and teamwork outperformed organizations with less progressive practices. Researchers Hart, Griffin, Wearing & Cooper (1996) have pursued the shared perception model of Organizational Climate. Their model identifies the variables which moderate an organization‟s ability to mobilize its workforce in order to achieve business goals and maximize performance. Potosky and Ramakrishna (2001) found that an emphasis on learning and skill development was significantly related to organizational performance.
