  • Department of Business Administration, Tezpur University, Tezpur, India


Professionalism is considered as a prerequisite for effectiveness of any successful system including a government department. Outcome gives an insight to the departments to identify where change is desired. It provides a rationale for government output. A major question emerges as to whether (there is a relationship) professionalism influences employee outcome. This study is carried out to study the relationship between professionalism and employee outcome. Besides this, the paper also carries out a comparison amongst three selected districts of Arunachal Pradesh with regards to level of professionalism and employee outcome in the Department of Rural Development. The study reveals that there is a strong positive relation between the two variables. Besides, the paper also highlights that almost 50 percent of the employees have never undergone any training. It is also found out that the level of employee commitment of the particular department is low which may be considered as one of the factor for low employee outcome.
