Influence of organisational affiliation, gender and length of service on the perception of organisational justice in Nigeria

Idowu M. Ogunkuade

Abstract


This study investigated the influence of organisational affiliation, gender and length of service on the perception of organisational justice. The survey method was used in which Organisational Justice Scale developed by Niehoff and Moorman (1993) and validated in Nigeria by Ogunkuade & Ojiji (2018) was administered on 312 participants (207 males and 105 females). The participants who were drawn through simple random sampling technique from the population of workers in some public and private electronic media organisations in Abuja, Nigeria, ranged in age between 18 and 60 years. Parametric statistical tests (one-way analysis of variance and independent ‘t’ test) used to analyse the data, showed that gender had no statistically significant influence on the overall perception of organisational justice: t (310) = 0.76, NS. However, organisational affiliation had a statistically significant influence on the overall perception of organisational justice: t (310) = 2.09, p<0.04, but not on the “distributive” and “interactional” components. Furthermore, length of service had a statistically significant influence on the overall perception of organisational justice: F (2, 309) = 12.4, p<0.001, as well as each of its three components. Findings were discussed in the light of the theoretical and empirical review and specific recommendations were made on how the findings could impact policy formulation and implementation to enhance organisational performance and workers’ well-being in Nigeria.

Keywords: Organisational justice, perception, organisational affiliation, gender, length of service, organisational performance.
