Abstract


This study investigated the influence of perceived co-worker involvement and Supervisory Support on Job Satisfaction among Staff of Champion Brewery, Uyo. One hundred and fifty (150) participants were drawn as participant using simple randomization. The participants were ninety five males and fifty five females whose age ranged between 18-40 years with the mean age of 27.5years. Two hypotheses were formulated and tested. The first hypothesis predicted that “there will be a statistically significant influence of co worker involvement on job satisfaction”. The second hypothesis predicted that “there will be a statistically significant influence of supervisory support on job satisfaction”. A 2 x 2 factorial design was used to collect data and a 2 way ANOVA was used to analyze data. The results of the findings relating to the first hypothesis indicated that perceived co-workers involvement have a significant influence on job satisfaction [F(1,146) = 137.38, p< .05]. The results also revealed that the second hypothesis was confirmed, Supervisory support was shown to significantly influence job satisfaction [F(1,146) = 20.63, p< .05, thus the researchers accepted the hypothesis. The interaction of perceived co-worker involvement and supervisory support on job satisfaction was also significant. [F(1,146) = 44.66, p< .05]. The researchers discussed the findings in this study in relation to the existing empirical studies.
