This study was conducted in order to reveal the effects of management skills of managers to organizational climate, according to the opinions of employees working in the Directorate of Youth Services and Provincial Directorate of Youth and Sports. The sample group of the study comprises of 73 randomly chosen employees from five cities (Elazığ: 17 employees, Diyarbakır: 10 employees, Gümüşhane: 14 employees, Isparta: 18 employees and Kırklareli: 14 employees). In order to collect the data for the study, “Contributions of Perceived Management Skills of Managers to Organizational Climate Scale”, which was developed by Akar (2006), was adopted. The Scale form consists of 4 subscales and a total of 30 matters. These are “Job Centeredness”, “Tolerance”, “Close Control” and “Contempt”. In the data analysis, frequency and percentage calculations were used. In terms of the mean points on the scale, determinant statistics, normality analysis, and homogeneity results were examined. Due to the inability of the data to present a normal distribution, in independent pair group comparisons, Mann-Whitney U test of non-parametric tests was adopted while Kruskal-Wallis H test was adopted in multiple group comparisons. The statistical meaningfulness degree Alpha (α) error rate was adopted as p<0.05. The following results were obtained as a result of the mentioned tests: No statistically significant difference was observed according to the sample group’s variables of marital status and educational level. In the “Job Centeredness” subscale of the scale, meaningful differences were observed in the professional seniority (0.041<p) and service time (0.039<p). In the “Tolerance” subscale, meaningful differences were observed in the variables of gender (0.012<p) and professional seniority (0.045<p). Furthermore, in the “Contempt” subscale, meaningful differences were observed in the variable of the place of duty (0.015<p).
