The Manifestation of Organizational Alienation of Employees and its Impact on Work Conditions
Dr. Mohammad Shehada, Dr. Nema Khafaje

The objective of the study is to find out the impact of organizational alienation of employees on work conditions. When a person cannot adapt and has harmony with self he would live in self alienation and that is the most difficult kind of alienation, and when a person cannot find harmony with others because of his lack of adaptation with the environment he lives in isolation and introversion. Moreover, when an organization does not interact with its employees individually or as a group and does not interact with other organizations or society then it will live in alienation situation. Technology advancement, industrial and organizational acceleration and cultural and societal development have all lead to increased expectations of employees and their needs and once these expectations are not met then they would feel alienated. Work divisions, specialization and the ignorance of all the processes of work have lead employees to feel isolated and alienated at work and that by itself led to no belonging, no solidarity and that also led to negative attitudes, aggression, rejection to the existed system, no loyalty to the organization and no desire for work and all these would lead to resignation. The Study shows that there is a negative correlation between alienation and work conditions of employees and it was recommended that certain steps such as building a system of awards and incentives and creating values and self development had to be taken into consideration by the organization to remedy the alienation phenomenon.
