The role of job attitudes on organizational perception has recently received attention by organizational behavior researchers. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships between organizational perception, job involvement, and job motivation among male employees in state sport organizations. The sample consisted of 66 male employees who were working for a state sports organization. In this study, separate questionnaires were used to measure job organizational perception (Eizen Berger, 1986), job involvement (Ladahl and Kejner, 1965), and job motivation (Vagner, 1995). The questionnaires were found to be valid and reliable. The findings showed a positive and significant (p<0.05) relationship between organizational perception and job involvement (r=0.58, p= 0.001). It was revealed that increasing organizational perception is related with increasing job involvement. There was a positive and significant correlation between employees’ organizational perception and job motivation (r= 0.69, p=0.001), which suggests that increasing organizational perception is related with increasing job motivation. The results also indicated a positive relationship between employee job involvement and job motivation (r= 0.73, p= 0.002). Hence the more employees were involved in their job, the more they were motivated to do the job. It is recommended that organizational managers should consider these psychological variables and provide their employees with opportunities to increase their organizational involvement and job motivation.
