THE EFFECT OF JOB SATISAFACTION ON ORGANISATIONAL COMMITMENT AMONG NON-ACADEMIC STAFF OF TERTIARY INSTITUTIONS IN EKITI STATE

Abstract

The study examines the effect of job satisfaction on organisational commitment among non-academic staffs of tertiary institutions in Ekiti State, with the main focus to determine the influence job satisfaction has on affective commitment and continuance commitment. 343 non-academic personnel are drawn from three (3) tertiary institutions into the sample and questionnaires distributed among them. 326 questionnaires are duly returned and analysed using Simple Percentage, Regression Analysis, and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) methods. The findings indicate that pay/salary, job security, supervision, job enrichment and job challenges lead to job satisfaction. It also reveals that job satisfaction has significant positive influence on both affective commitment and continuance commitment; however, job satisfaction exerts a greater influence on continuance commitment. The study suggests that job satisfaction plays a vital role on organisational commitment among non-academic staff of tertiary institutions.
