Abstract:Generally, Nigerian employees show a poor work attitude, especially in the public sector. It has been suggested that Nigerian workers in multinational corporations have a more positive job attitude due perhaps to the improved compensation packages offered by these organizations. The present article investigates the effect of the remuneration package of multinationals on the attitude of workers as expressed by their job satisfaction or dissatisfaction in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. The authors conducted a survey including a questionnaire and personal interviews, using a sample of 120 respondents from all categories of employees from eight multinational corporations, picked from four major industrial groupings, namely oil exploration, services, manufacturing/production, and construction. They found that job attitude was significantly affected by the compensation system, and that there is a strong positive relationship between level of compensation and employee performance and commitment. The authors recommend, among other things, that corporate management should actively strive to manage established reward systems in order to influence and improve the work attitude of their employees.
