Abstract

The study addresses the issue of psychological well-being of career women in Lagos Metropolis, focusing on the predictive influence or role of perceived organizational support on the psychological well-being. A survey method was used and two hundred and eighty-five (285) women from across private and public organizations both on the mainland and island areas of Lagos participated in the study. Data were collected using Survey of Perceived Organizational Support (SPOS) and Scale of Psychological Well-being (SPWB). The collected data were processed using descriptive and inferential statistics such as mean, standard deviation, independent t-test, correlation and linear regression. The results show that participants’ perception of organizational support has a significant influence on their psychological well-being. The results also show that there is a variation in the influence of perceived organizational support on the dimensions of psychological well-being, a difference in older and younger participants and no significant influence on the type of organization. The study concluded that perceived organizational support has a significant role in explaining the psychological well-being of career women. The implication of the study in terms of organizations being more aware of the role perceived organizational support plays in the psychological well-being of career women is discussed.
