This study strived to ascertain the effect of Managerial work habits on employee performance. Sharjah Islamic Bank, a leading UAE based bank was chosen for the study. Data for the study was collected through Interviews with HR stakeholders and Questionnaire administration to employees working in the branches. The independent variables identified were validated through Literature review. Branches were classified into 5 categories based on business performance. A questionnaire that enquired about the work habits of their Managers was administered across the branches and the responses were analyzed. To determine whether a relationship exists between the dependent variable (employee performance) and each of the independent variables, Spearman's rho correlation test was conducted. The correlation between every pair of independent variables in the model was also checked. This was done to check whether the correlation between two independent variables was large enough to cause multi co linearity. In the Correlation table, no statistically significant correlation in excess of 0.8 was observed between the different pairs of independent variables. Hence Ordinal regression was carried out between the dependent and independent variables. This study found that “Clear performance goal setting,” “improving employee relations,” and “recognition” had a statistically significant effect on employee performance. However, “holding staff accountable,” “delegating,” “coaching” and “cocreating by soliciting solutions” were found to have no statistically significant effect on the same.
