ABSTRACT

This study investigated the relationship between job motivation, satisfaction, and performance among staff of Nigerian Defence Academy Kaduna. The study employed ex-post factor design. The population of the study was 2,751 military and civilian personnel. The sample for the study was 275. Seven research questions and seven hypotheses were formulated to guide this study. Three instruments on job motivation, job satisfaction and work performance were adapted from Goodman and Svyantex (1999) and used for this study. Percentages, means and Pearson product Moment Correlation were used to analyse the data. Findings revealed that significant relationship existed between job motivation and work performance among staff of NDA with (p< 0.003; r = 0.875 at df 273, between job satisfaction and work performance among staff of NDA with (p < 0.006, r = 0.666 at df 273, between job motivation and work performance of male staff of NDA with (p < 0.000, r = 0.705 at df 220) and also of their female counterpart (p < 0.000, r = 0.699 at df 51). Based on the findings of the study, it is recommended that: the entire NDA staff should be motivated irrespective of their nature of appointment (military or civilian), rank or gender in order to enhance their job satisfaction and performance.

Some people work hard to achieve that which they want and need because the urge to do so is a dictate of the anticipated reward-extrinsic motivation. Nevertheless, the terms "job satisfaction" and

Attempting to understand the nature of job satisfaction and its effects on work performance is not easy.
