Abstract



This paper studies certain organizational and individual factors that play an important role in performance and job satisfaction, especially in non-profit organizations where employees do not have high paid jobs. The research involved 45 managers and 57 non-managers (total 102 subjects) of the civil sector in Macedonia in order to gain opinions about the culture of the organizations in which they work and about work motivation. In addition, 60 items questionnaire on organizational culture by Denison and 30 items uestionnaire on work motivation by Amаbile were administered. Postulates of the research were that there is a positive relationship between organizational culture
and work motivation, and that certain dimensions of organizational culture (mission of the organization, adaptability of the organization, employee participation and consistency in work) are significant predictors of motivation to work (internal and external) in civil organizations. The correlation-regression analysis confirmed the expectations of the research. Managers and non-managers presented similar views. In their opinion there is a high level of motivation to work (especially high level is that of intrinsic motivation) and also, there is a highly developed favorable culture of civil organizations. In conclusion, the study points out that the success of civil organizations is due to the fact that there is a positive association between high intrinsic motivation for work and favorable organizational culture. In other words, it’s a matter of satisfaction
with the work itself in addition to the atmosphere at work as a strong external stimulator for employees.

Keywords: organizational culture dimensions, intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation, civil organization.
