Organizational values: trust and characteristics of its dimensions in police organization
MetadataShow full item record
With rapid development of globalization processes open markets are formed followed by competition in all areas. Trust in the organization and successful realization of the goals of the organization and its members depend on the factors facilitating competition within the market. That can be evaluated on different levels: of the individual/ personality, organization / employee and community/citizen. Ch.Handy1 stresses that display of trust rather than control within the organization largely determines the efficiency of activity, the employees’ satisfaction, pursuit of results and other advantages. At the same time, the need of information, ideas and intellect does exist when the relation between technologies and seeking of high level of trust is balanced; therefore, the need for mutual understanding, trust and purposeful activity aimed at compatibility of personal and organizational interests, is becoming increasingly important. The aim of this paper is to carry out analysis of trust in the organization in one of the Lithuanian police organizations, to analyze specific features of the organizational trust dimensions, i.e. the display of trust, seeking results, high-principled activity and the exposure of concern; to determine the differences in understanding these dimensions and an overall trust among members of the police organization with regard to gender, age and position in the organization. Since the police organization as a statutory one is a specific unit of the public sector, we are interested whether or not it is different from other organizations of that sector (e.g. municipality) or those of the private sector.
