The effect of managerial entrepreneurship behavior on employee satisfaction: Hospitality managers´┐Ż?? dilemma..


Ethem Duygulu* and Osman Asvar Kurgun

This study analyses the effect of managerial entrepreneurship behavior on employee satisfaction. For the variables mentioned, the environmental and structural variables in particular, which we suppose have an influence on the satisfaction, are used as moderators in this study. According to the findings acquired, there is a strong and a positive correlation between the managerial entrepreneurship behavior and satisfaction. Also, the entrepreneurial behavior explains 75% of the employee satisfaction due to this behavior. The hierarchical regression analysis, realized according to the model, shows that only the variable of the static-dynamic dimension of the process environment has a quasi moderator effect on the satisfaction due to entrepreneurial behavior between the other moderator-variables. Of the organizational structure variables, the formalization and the centralization degree have a quasi moderator variable effect on the satisfaction of the managerial behavior. Consequently, the findings give us the result that the structural variables in the organization can be controlled, that these variables can be organized by managerial techniques for the benefit of the employees and that the managerial behaviors are very important for the perception and the satisfaction of the employees.
