Perceived Organisational Target Selling, Self- Efficacy, Sexual Harassment and Job Insecurity as Predictors of Psychological Wellbeing of Bank Employees in Nigeria

GA Adejuwon, AM Lawal

Abstract


Mixed reports have shown that different variables account for differences in the psychological wellbeing of bank employees in Nigeria. Based on this premise, the study examined the contributions of perceived organizational target selling, self-efficacy, sexual harassment and job insecurity on psychological wellbeing among bank employees in Nigeria. A cross sectional survey design was used in the study. Two hundred (200) bank employees (110 females & 90 male) were conveniently sampled from 10 bank branches within Ibadan metropolis. Data were gathered using a self report questionnaire consisting of scales measuring variables in the study. Self efficacy, job insecurity, sexual harassment and target selling significantly jointly predicted psychological wellbeing (F=69.27, p<.05); accounting for 55% (R2= .55) variation of psychological wellbeing. Self-efficacy (ß =.31, p<.05), job insecurity (ß=-.32, p<.05) and target selling (ß = -.46 p<.05) independently predicted psychological wellbeing. Sexual harassment did not independently predict psychological wellbeing (ß= -.01, p >.05). Based on findings, it was concluded that perceived organizational target selling, self-efficacy, sexual harassment and job insecurity contribute largely to psychological wellbeing among bank employees in Nigeria. It was recommended that preventive measures should be put in place to improve the wellbeing of bank employees.
