Abstract

The study investigated the influence of locus of control and job satisfaction on perceived non- teaching staffs` productivity in higher institutions in Ogun State of Nigeria. This is for the purpose of ascertaining the relative and combined contributions of locus of control and job satisfaction to perceived non- teaching staffs` productivity in higher institutions in Nigeria. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for the study. A total of 341 respondents were selected for the study, using proportionate stratified sampling technique. The instruments used for data collection are structured questionnaires titled “Locus of Control Scale (LCS), Job Satisfaction Scale (JSS) and Workers` Productivity Scales (PWPS). The hypotheses generated for the study were tested at 0.05 alpha levels using Regression Analysis and Pearson Product Moment Correlation Statistics. The findings of the study revealed that locus of control and job satisfaction were found to have jointly contributed to perceived non- teaching staffs` productivity in selected higher institutions in Ogun State of Nigeria. Also, job satisfaction was found to have significantly influenced perceived non- teaching staffs` productivity. Moreover, locus of control was not significantly related to perceived non- teaching staffs` productivity. Based on the findings of the study, it is recommended that non- teaching staffs` should be exposed to skill development programme on the job and on continuous basis in order to update their skills, knowledge, values, and receive proper orientation regarding the correlate of organizational productivity. This will enable them aware of the influence of the working environment on their productivity and aver the danger of attributing productivity to self efficacy and locus of control.
