- Nafei Wageeh
Purpose: The purpose of this research is to identify the types of OA (sensing agility, decision-making agility and acting agility) and its role in promoting Quality of Work Life (QWL) of the employees at commercial banks in Egypt.
Research Design/Methodology: To assess positive OA refer to (OA questionnaire, Jaworski, & Kohli, 1993) and QWL (QWL survey Seashore et al., 1983; Cammann et al., 1983; National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 2002) are used. The data of the study was collected from the employees at commercial banks in Egypt. Out of the 382 questionnaires that were distributed to employees, 325 usable questionnaires were returned, a response rate of 85%. Multiple Regression Analysis (MRA) was used to confirm the research hypotheses.
Findings: It has been paid to how OA factors have an impact on QWL. In other words, sensing agility, decision-making agility and acting agility significantly correlated with QWL. The study findings support the view that OA and QWL are related constructs. In other words, the research has found that the study subjects do agree that OA directly affects the dimensions of QWL of the employees at commercial banks in Egypt involved in the current study.
Practical implications: The study suggests that at commercial banks in Egypt can improve QWL by influencing its OA, specifically, by developing sensing agility, decision-making agility and acting agility. The study provided that it is necessary to pay more attention to the dimensions of OA as a key source for organizations to enhance the competitive advantage which is of prime significance for QWL.Originality/value: The study observes that there is a critical shortage of OA and that a greater understanding of the factors that influence the QWL. Therefore, this study examines the relationship between OA and QWL among employees at commercial banks in Egypt. This research dealt with OA in terms of its concept and dimensions, in addition to dealing with the role of OA in promoting QWL at commercial banks in Egypt.
