Explicit management guidelines are intended to provide a binding orientation framework for the actions of managers in organizations such as, e.g. companies offer. They are intended to ensure that the actors involved share a common leadership model, making leadership actions more “predictable” for the organization on the one hand and sanctionable in the event of misconduct on the other. Leadership guidelines are thus also artifacts of a specific corporate and leadership culture. Under scientific supervision, the second employee survey on employee satisfaction and motivation will be carried out from September 2010, following a similar survey in 2006, in a company with more than 5,000 employees worldwide that is a global service provider in the mobility industry. Part of this survey is the current corporate and leadership culture as well as an examination of the effectiveness of the leadership guidelines formulated in the company. The survey takes place in several branches throughout Germany. A paper- and online-based full survey is planned.
