Abstract


This study was designed to find out the influence of workers’ attitude towards time and work on perceived job performance in private and public sectors. One hundred and eighty (180) workers drawn from five (5) different organizations, three (3) from private sector and two (2) from public sector in Ado-Ekiti and Ibadan metropolis were used as samples. Three instruments were used namely Time Attitude Scale (TAS) to measure the attitude of workers toward time; Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) to measure job satisfaction which represents workers attitude towards work; and the perceived Job Performance Scale (JPS) to measure workers characteristic, tendencies to work long and hard as means of achieving success rather than their activity during a specific period. T-test for independent groups and regression analysis were employed in analyzing the data collected. Five hypotheses were tested and results shows that there is no significant difference in the attitude of workers towards time in private and public sectors; that there is a significant difference in the attitude of workers towards work in private and public sectors; that there is no significant difference in workers perceived job performance in both private and public sectors; that there is a significant joint influence of workers’ attitude towards time and work on perceived job performance in the private sector, there is also a significant independent influence of workers attitude towards time on perceived job performance in the private sector but there is no significant independent influence of workers attitude towards work on perceived job performance in the private sector. It was also found that there is no significant joint and independent influence of workers’ attitude towards time and work on perceived job performance in the public sector.
