Project Body:



Background of the StudyDecision making is the most important activity of management of most organization ranging from small sole organization to multinational corporations whether in the private or in the public sector. This is the case of the Akwa Ibom Broadcasting Corporation where decision making is a core responsibility of the top management.Basically, the 21st century decision-making processes are changing due to the geometrical changes in globalization, urbanization, value orientation and technological advancement. Competitive advantage is now the result of employee decision-making proficiency. This is why consideration of holistic social system participation of the composite units of any organization is highly essential.Critical examination of every organizational organogram shows a typical position of employees in an organization as a basement that supports other managerial hierarchy. Employees can be regard as the base men of an organization that are positioned at the point of delivery of organisational goals. Effiong (2009) considers employees as individuals that facilitate successful implementation of decision taken by the top management as well as stimulate transitional efficiency of the organization. Similarly, employees conduct the baseline affairs of the organization and are the vital component that relate and relay the organization decisions (in the form of policies) with the public. This in essence implies that employees are bedrock for successful translation of goals into concrete form. Thus, active participation of employees is essential to the growth of an organization.Employees participation in decision making is the extent to which employees are allow or encourage to share or participate in organisational decision making process (Hickey and Cosner-Lotto in Abduli and Shatiwa, 2014; Probst, 2005). This as argued by some scholars has the tendency to improve staff (employees) moral and support, increase employees satisfaction, motivation, innovation and decrease inefficiency (Steinheider, Bayerl and Wuestewald, 2006; Rice, 2015). In other words, putting decision-making power as close as possible to the point of delivery may ease the implementation of those decisions possibly successful.There are many measures through which employees participate in the decision making of an organization. Some of such ways are through inter-personal relationship between the top and lower management, top management delegation of responsibilities and leadership. These may help to create a sense of belonging among workers as well as a congenial environment in which both the management and the workers voluntarily contribute to healthy industrial relation. This is premised on the assertion of Cotton in Irawarito (2015) that there may be a close link between organizational effectiveness and individual effectiveness in an organization.
