Johnson FEJOH

This study investigated industrial democracy as a determinant of job satisfaction among workers of public health institutions in Ogun State of Nigeria. The study employed the ex-post-facto research design. In carrying out the research, five hypotheses were generated and tested using an instrument titled “industrial democracy and job satisfaction scale’ (IDJSS) which comprised of 20 items. The instrument was administered to a purposely selected population of 100 staff of Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu, Ogun State and State Hospital, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State. Pearson moment correlation coefficient was used to test all the five hypotheses. The findings show that industrial democracy factors of information participation, consultative participation, associative participation, administrative participation and decisive participation have significant positive correlation with workers job satisfaction as follows – information participation(r=0.622, p <0.005); consultative participation(r=0.800, p<0.05); associative participation (r=0.876,p<0.005); administrative participation (r=0.818, p<0.005) and decisive participation (r=0.809, p<0.005). The study therefore recommended that managers of tertiary health institutions in Ogun State should develop a plat form where all cadres of workers will participate in the management of the institution and be updated with key happenings in the institutions as this will guarantee their satisfaction and higher productivity.
