Abstract


This study investigated effects of job enrichment on work-related attitudes in selected public universities in Lagos State. It noted that job enrichment is that type of development in the job environment which may give a worker more challenge, more complete task, more obligation, more prospect for progression, and more effort to contribute his or her ideas for the betterment of the organization. It explores the connection between job enrichment, satisfaction, motivation and performance of employees using the descriptive survey design and utilizing the correlational and regression statistical tools. The study drew its sample from the non-academic staffs of Lagos State University and the University of Lagos which are the public university in Lagos State.The findings revealed that job enrichment is a strong predictor of work-related attitudes (employee satisfaction, motivation, and performance). This study concludes that job enrichment provides skill variety, job identity, feeling important in the eyes of others, responsibility, challenge, realizing ones competence, freedom, participation in decision making, performance feedback from the job done, growth and sense of achievement which leads to internal motivation, satisfaction, and high performance of the non-academic staff.
