Employer organizations are always concerned for getting maximum output from their employees. They provide a host of stimuli to their staff so that they fetch sound returns, but the give and take relationship is mediated by many factors. One of those is educational background of employees. Present study is an attempt of understanding the factor with reference to a nationalised bank. Employees were segregated in three groups (tenure, stream and highest degree earned) and their responses to organizational stimuli were measured through well-established scales. Analysis of variance was applied after descriptive analysis of data in order to find out significance of difference in responses. Results of the study indicate significant variance in responses amongst the groups. The study concludes that organizational stimuli should also be designed and manipulated according to the educational background of staff members.
