One of the main goals of organizational/work behavior research is to figure out why people behave the way they do. When we talk about “behaviors,” what exactly do we mean? Work behavior is concerned with job efficiency, corporate citizenship practices, absenteeism, and attrition.
Workplace behavior can also be defined as a person’s intention or mode of communication with co-workers. Confidence, for example, is a nonverbal trait that is frequently replicated in office verbal contact. It reveals how you feel about your co-workers as well as teammates. The positive and productive work behavior of an individual adds to the team or individual success, morale, and high outputs. From an organizational standpoint, this is the most important topic for Human Resource professionals to focus on.
