Organizational Justice and Commitment to Work in the Nigerian Public Sector

Within the context of equity and social exchange theories, the aim of this study is to see how perceived organisational inequality affects public servants’ willingness to work. The survey study design was used to collect factual data that are observable and quantifiable by administering the questionnaire during a day sensitization programme organised for firefighters in Lagos State on the subject of “Combating Fire Disaster” on Monday, June 26th, 2017. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to evaluate the results. For this analysis, four hypotheses were created. At the 0.05 level of significance, the reported hypotheses were evaluated using Chi-Square and Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient. We discovered that employees of the public sector’s commitment to perform on assigned duties and obligations is influenced by their perceptions of injustice. In a nutshell, the perception of inequality is one of the most powerful factors influencing engagement in both public and private organisations. Managers should ensure that workers experience justice in policy development processes as well as in policy execution as they continue to perform their duties in the organisation, according to this report. They should also discuss incentive systems and procedures, as well as performance management and the employee-manager relationship.
