Organizational behaviour is subjective upon emotions and attitudes of the people working within that organization. Human resource is the greatest asset of any organization and therefore more organizations attempt to preserve and maintain a high quality of human resource. Therefore, organizations undertake various developmental programmes initiated by the management to ensure the growth of the employees. It requires the employee’s involvement and addresses the challenges posed by the organization to the workers and also in turn enables the organization to re-structure in ways to ensure greater performance of the employees. This process is generally referred to as building the human capital.
Humans are characterised by emotions which are reactions to experiences and changes which an individual expresses in their physiological state. Emotions put us in a state of reaction and are classified into positive and negative emotions marked by high and low levels. Positive high emotions includes mental and physical states of being enthusiastic and exaltedwhereas the high of negative emotions includes being unhappy, jittery, gloomy, depressed and sad. The low levels of positive emotion incorporates the states of being relaxed and content and those of the negative includes being bored and drowsy. Each of the aforementioned texts has direct effect on the organization and therefore the emotional health of the employee becomes a matter of serious concern for the organization. If the organization does nothing to help the employee cope with the mental state of negativity then slowly the performance of that particular employee will lessen causing loss to the organization in question.
