Assessing employee attitudes in a community-based AIDS service organization

Assessing employee attitudes in a community-based AIDS service organization

Evaluation and the Health Professions 17(3): 273-289

This study surveyed employees of the Comprehensive AIDS Program of Palm Beach County, Florida, a community-based AIDS service organization, to understand employees' motives for working for the organization and their attitudes toward their jobs, the organization, its clients (persons with AIDS), and governments. The study revealed that the primary reasons employees work for the organization are a desire for personal involvement in the AIDS fight and the personal lifestyle and/or feeling of each employee. These employees were highly motivated, showing some very positive attitudes toward their jobs, organization, and clients. On the other side, these employees reported concern for future funding of their organization and unhappiness with both federal and state governments' role in the fight against AIDS. Based on these findings, the authors discuss implications for the management of AIDS service organizations, the quality of the AIDS service delivery system, and the future development of AIDS service organizations.
