Fundamental Concepts of Organizational Behavior:

The basic fundamental concepts of organizational behavior revolve around the nature of people and the organization.

The Fundamental Concepts:

Individual differences:

All people are different from each other and behave different under similar conditions. Thus, people have to be treated differently and managers should realize this and eliminate any stereotypes they hold for workers.

Whole Person:

Companies should consider its employees as the whole person, not just a pair of hands. Employees should be treated as people with wants and needs, which should be addressed accordingly. It should be noted that employees interact with each other, and the behavior of one employee may influence the behavior of others, and the entire community.


If managers respect their employees, they'll get respect in return.

Human Dignity:

This concept is very philosophical. Every human being needs to be treated with dignity and respect, whether it's the CEO of the company or a labourer.
