Abstract: The purpose of this research is to diagnose the spread of the phenomenon of social loafing in-group activities of manufacturing companies. The theoretical part of the article is prepared by using the methods of scientific literature analysis, synthesis, chronology, and analogy. After a detailed analysis of the researches, the dimensions for a new questionnaire have been distinguished. After attributing the items to the dimensions, the expert assessment of the questionnaire was organized. On the basis of the results of the assessment, the appropriate for diagnostics version of the questionnaire was obtained. The empirical research was conducted using the questionnaire developed by the authors, i.e. by carrying out the closedtype questionnaire survey for employees working in-group activities of the manufacturing companies. Only employees of three of the eight groups of manufacturing companies involved in the research admit to loaf socially. It was found that interaction with the leader of the group has quite a large influence on the emergence of the social loafing of the group. When evaluating the emotional commitment it was found that employees are more likely to be committed to colleagues working in the group than to the company where they work. The analysis of the group support aspect highlighted the differences between generations and avoidance to interact in an informal environment, i.e., outside the workplace
