Abstract

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of business alignment of the employees and job gratification, to determine if there is an empirically demonstrable connection between these two variables, this empirical research was conducted through a survey on a research sample of 200 employees of an Egyptian University. The results of this study found that there is no significant relationship between the two variables. Employees’ job gratification can be sensitive to both positive and negative influences from certain business alignments and job gratification factors. Management should address, promote and monitor corporate entrepreneurship in an organization, eventually creating a business with employees who are satisfied in their jobs. Managements should therefore align themselves towards the promotion of corporate entrepreneurship activities in organizations by being receptive to, and by encouraging and rewarding innovative suggestions from employees.
