The essence of the article is to present the results of studies that have been conducted
on a sample of 47 employees and 127 students. The purpose was to investigate whether the need
to belong is an important factor for the employees to fully engage in their work, if the consciousness
of belonging increases employees' loyalty, their creativity, and arises with an improvement
of the effectiveness in achieving organizational and their own goals. Theoretical analysis was intentionally
based on the "iconic" literature (Stoner, Wankel, Freeman, Gilbert, Griffin, Penc, Kotarbinski).

emphasis of the need for belonging, then it was referred to the creation of the atmosphere of belonging
to the organization. The third section presents the results obtained in the research. The
assumptions presented in the introduction were confirmed.
