This research study is motivated by the desire to develop an understanding of the organisational climate construct, and its antecedents and consequences in the Jordanian national context. Within the this framework, the study seeks to examine several major aspects. The first is to ascertain the kind of perceived organisational climate that exists in Jordanian manufacturing companies and to examine the reliability and interdependence of climate dimensions. These dimensions are Structure, Responsibility, Reward, Risk, Warmth, Support, Standards, Conflict, and Identity. The next aim of the research is to explore the differences in climate perceptions according to employees' personal (age, gender, marital status, and education) and career (tenure, position, and pay) background patterns. The third aspect investigated is the relationship between climate dimensions and measures of organisational effectiveness (behavioural and financial based measures). Behavioural measures include retention of high-level employees, job satisfaction, and intention to quit, whereas financial performance is measured by Growth and Profitability indices.
