Abstract


Certain individual factors appear to be important in ensuring higher level of performance among bank employees in Nigeria. This study investigated emotional intelligence and perceived inequity as influencing factors to perceived job performance among bank employees in Ibadan. Ex-post facto design was used in the study. Two hundred and thirty four (136 males & 98 females) bank employees completed questionnaires; which were distributed using accidental sampling technique. Results showed that emotional intelligence significantly influenced perceived job performance. Perceived inequity significantly influenced perceived job performance. No gender difference was observed in perceived job performance among bank employees. It is concluded that Human Resources Development practitioners should give consideration to emotional intelligence and perceived inequity as vital individual factors that may have some psychological implications in ensuring high performance among bank employees.
