Abstract : Research was conducted to establish the effects of supervisor actually writing performance reports, sex of employee, and communication between workers on three criteria of organizational effectiveness (i.e., climate, satisfaction, and perceived productivity). Data were collected on 4786 military and civilian personnel located at five Air Force bases using the Organizational Assessment Package (OAP). A one-way ANOVA was used to test for significant differences associated with whether the supervisor actually writes the employee's performance reports. A two-way ANOVA was used to test for significant differences associated with the employee's sex and the amount of communication between workers. There were significant differences on all three criteria based upon whether or not the supervisor actually writes the performance reports. All three criteria were enhanced for those subjects whose supervisor actually wrote the reports. Additionally, the data revealed a consistent, positive relationship between the extent of communication among workers (for both male and female members) and all three effectiveness criteria.
