The predictive influence of incentives, staff discipline, religiosity, self-esteem, and length of service on job involvement among secondary school teachers was examined in this study. A descriptive research design was employed and data was collected through a structured questionnaire. Eighty (80) teachers comprising of 31 males and 49 females selected through simple random sampling technique participated in the study. The results revealed that incentives, staff discipline, religiosity, self-esteem and length of service significantly jointly predicted job involvement, (F (5, 74) = 12.545; p<.001). Incentives (β = .45), staff discipline (β = .35), and self-esteem (β = .40) significantly contributed individually to job involvement. Religiousity, and length of service however, did not have significant contribution to job involvement.

Keywords: Job Involvement, Incentives, Staff discipline, Religiosity, Length of service, and Self-esteem.
