Bernard Nmashie Nmai, Eric Delle

Institutional deficiencies have led to increased interest in empirical research in corporate governance. This study sought to investigate the predictive relationship between corporate governance and employee job satisfaction, and dimensions of corporate governance (i.e. internal control, corporate structure and code of governance) and employee job satisfaction. Correlational research design was utilized to investigate the problem with a convenient sample of 196 respondents. Pearson Product-Moment correlation test, Standard regression and hierarchical regression tests were used to test the hypotheses in this study. The result showed that corporate governance significantly and positively predicted employee job satisfaction. The three dimensions of corporate governance (i.e. corporate structure, code of governance and internal control) significantly and positively predicted employee job satisfaction with corporate structure accounting for more variance in employee job satisfaction than the other two dimensions. The implications of the findings with respect to theory have been discussed.
