Abstract

This research study aspires to investigate a variety of factors that may have an influence on the performance of the members of An Garda Síochána. Considerable reference was made to any literature which would assist in helping the author to formulate a constructive opinion on this matter. For this purpose, six members of different ranks and divisions of An Garda Síochána were interviewed by the researcher, to gain an insight into their opinions on the subject in question. Matters such as pay, training and development, working environment, organisational culture, work life balance and motivation were the main topics of discussion, in conjunction with other pertaining matters. All of these factors are vital within any organisation, and should be continually implemented and maintained, to lead to high performance and achieving targets set out. However, these very same factors can have a bad effect on an organisation when not applied correctly. It can be seen in this dissertation what conclusions and recommendations were made by the author, as a result of the findings from the interviews.
