But good management has benefits that extend much further than productivity. Therefore, this proposed research work intends to study what role of personality dimensions of an individual employee could play at workplace to keep employee satisfied combined with the role of manager and job attributes.

IBM one of the biggest leading companies in the market of computers and information technology was incorporated in 1911 as the Computer-Tabulating-Recording Co. IBM has been doing business in Bangladesh in partnership with Thakral Information Systems since 1998.

Literature Review
In our study, those employees who are satisfied with their manager state a much higher intention to stay with the organization than those who are dissatisfied. Those who rate their managers as good also feel they have promising prospects within the company as well as confidence in the organizations future. So, good management means employees are more engaged, more committed and more productive. For organizations, this means higher employee retention, reduced absenteeism and improvements in service quality, customer satisfaction and overall performance.

Managers Attitude Affects on Organizational Performance

Managers are primarily responsible for: A. ensuring the development, performance, and conduct of each employee working in the organizations they direct; B. defining clear goals and courses of action to subordinates, and following up to ensure that these are carried out; C. ensuring the well-being and progress of the personnel in their groups; D. fostering good working relationships; E. displaying integrity in all actions; and F.

ii) What Makes a Good Manager'

A good manager is someone who keeps his commitments, evaluates employees' performance fairly, makes use of employees' ideas, quickly solves problems and practices open, two-way communication. Their behavior should be consistent with the mission and values of the organization, they should provide opportunity for employees to improve their skills and they should re-assure employees that they have a promising future.

iii) Performance = Motivation + Ability + Environment Deficiency in any one of these factors will result in a lower level of job performance. Managers always need to ensure that these three conditions are met. Of all the three factors, it is generally accepted that motivation is the most difficult factor to manage. This is mainly due to the fact that humans attitude/behavior is full of complexities and thus difficult to manage. As for the other two factors, an employee has been recruited with the awareness that he/she has the skills and capacity needed to perform the tasks as well as the fact that resources are readily available. If the manager feels that the employee lacks training of some sort, he/she can be sent to training programs to learn those skills. On the other hand, if resources are not available, i.e. the environment factor, the manager can take action to ensure that they become available.

Implications or Recommendations for Manager

Managers need to be qualified for their job roles (from a human and professional perspective) Work needs to be managed Work with people on career advancement (trainings etc.) Teamwork is the way to go, pitting one against the other can only be counterproductive. Simple praise and words of encouragement for a task well-done are always welcome. Give information freely and Let people know of your plans and change of plans, if any. Appreciation of a task and acknowledgement of efforts put in are wonderful morale boosters. Show concern and extend help whenever possible makes life easier and better both for the employee and the organization.

Conclusion

A manager who is passionate about the corporate vision helps employees to better understand and believe in that vision. When the staff believes in the direction that the company is headed thanks to the encouragement of the manager's positive attitude, then the successes the company experiences become something that the whole company takes pride in. Confidence in the company's vision also makes it easier to accept setbacks, learn from them and work hard to prevent them from occurring in the future.
