Abstract:

The study aimed to examine the organizational health index of a Higher Educational Institution (HEI) in Bulacan, Philippines. Fifty-seven full-time and part-time faculty members participated in the survey. Their demographic profiles were taken which include their age, gender, the college where they teach, and their years of service in the institution. Their perception about the HEI’s organizational health was likewise surveyed, using a 5-point Likert scale questionnaire. Items in the questionnaire covered twelve dimensions which are morale, appraisal and recognition, curriculum coordination, effective discipline policy, excessive work demands, goal congruence, professional growth, participant decision-making, professional interaction, role clarity, student organization, and supportive leadership. To find out if there is a significant difference between the faculty members’ profile and their perception of the HEI’s organizational health, T-test and ANOVA were used. Findings revealed that there was no statistically significant difference in the perception of faculty members on the HEI’s organizational health according to age, gender, college, and years of service. This means that the perception of the faculty members regarding the HEI’s organizational health is not affected by age, gender, college, and years of service. Overall, the faculty respondents had a fairly positive perception of the said Philippine HEI, considering the twelve dimensions indicative of a healthy school.
