Predictors of Job Performance of Nueva Vizcaya State University Faculty Members


Discipline: Education



The study determined the level of the Nueva Vizcaya State University faculty members’ motivation in terms of extrinsic and intrinsic motivators and their level of job performance. Utilizing the descriptive-inferential design, a validated researcher-made questionnaire was used to gather pertinent data to the 127 randomly selected teacher respondents. Frequencies and percentages, simple correlation analysis and categorical regression analysis were used in the statistical treatment of data. The results showed that the respondents were highly motivated extrinsically (satisfaction with salary, satisfaction with benefits, good relationships with co-workers, effective supervisor, effective senior managers and presence of core values) and intrinsically (work itself, recognition, good feelings about the organization, sense of responsibility, opportunity for advancement, professional growth opportunities and clarity of mission). The respondents’ job performance was also described as very satisfactory. As the faculty members age, they exhibited very satisfactory job performance. Moreover, those with longer years of service and those with higher academic rank manifested a very satisfactory performance in work. Faculty members performed very satisfactorily when they were highly satisfied with their remunerations and benefits. Sense of responsibility and opportunity for advancement highly motivate the NVSU faculty members to perform their jobs well. Further, academic rank was found to be a strong predictor of job performance of faculty members.
