MetadataShow full item record
The researcher investigated the relationship between rewards and job performance of teachers in secondary schools in Bombo Town Council in Luwero District, Uganda. The objectives of the study were to find out whether there was a relationship between monetary rewards and job performance of teachers in secondary schools; and to establish whether there was a relationship between non-monetary rewards and job performance of teachers in secondary schools. The study adopted a cross-sectional survey design on a sample of 121 respondents. Data was collected by use of questionnaire and interviews, and analysed quantitatively and qualitatively. Quantitative data was analysed at univariate, bivariate and multivariate levels. Qualitative data was analysed through discursive and thematic methods. Univariate findings of the study revealed that job performance of the teachers was fair (average). Multivariate results showed that whereas monetary rewards in terms of salary/ wage programmes had a positive and significant influence on performance of teachers, allowances did not. In addition, whereas flexible work time and pleasant work environment had a positive and significant influence on job performance of teachers, training and promotion did not. Therefore, it was concluded that salary/ wage programmes were the most probable monetary rewards necessary to enhance the job performance of teachers; and flexible work time and pleasant work environment were pre-requisite non-monetary rewards crucial for job performance of teachers. Hence, it was recommended that the government of Uganda and directors of private schools should provide satisfying salary/ wage programmes; schools administration should implement flexible work time and provide pleasant work environments.
