The purpose of this study was to investigate if a relationship exists between social support and employee performance relating to the aspects of support and performance among dairy employees. Studies on social support have been investigated in numerous organizations, but few studies explored the relationships between employee performance and social support at a dairy processing facility. Social learning theorists argued that individuals recognize their perspectives and behaviors through social modeling and as such, social learning theory was used as the theory guiding this quantitative correlational study. In this quantitative correlation study, 120 individuals were invited to participate in the survey, with the goal of obtaining 58 responses. The results indicated that there was not a significant relationship between social support and employee performance. To address the research question and hypothesis, a Pearson r and the Spearman’s rho were conducted. The results of the testing supported that there is not a direct relationship between different aspects that influence support and performance among dairy employees. Future research will need to be completed to provide leaders with additional knowledge on this topic.
