Abstract


The study investigated leadership style and organizational climate as determinants of job involvement and job satisfaction of workers in tertiary institutions in Ekiti State, Nigeria. A total of 300 employees drawn from three educational institutions in Ekiti State participated in the study. They comprised of 150 male and 150 female. Four research instruments were used to collect data and responses from the research participants. The research instruments are Supervisory Behavior Description Questionnaire (SBDQ), Job Involvement Scale (JI). Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) and Index of Organizational Reaction (IQR). Results showed that leadership styles and organizational climate have significant influence on job satisfaction. Also, significant influence of leadership styles and organizational climate was found on job involvement. In the same vein, significant relationship was found between job satisfaction and organizational climate; between job satisfaction and job involvement; and between organizational climate and job involvement. However, there was no significant relationship between job satisfaction and leadership styles; and between job involvement and leadership styles. No significant difference existed between job involvement and leadership styles, and none existed between job satisfaction and leadership styles.
