Abstract:This study investigates the influence of organizational culture, self-esteem, self-efficacy and self-regulation on indulgence in procrastination. It utilizes a correlational survey design involving two-hundred-and-forty-two sampled male (114) and female (128) civil servants in lbadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. The results of correlation analyses show both age and marital status have a significant negative relationship with procrastination. Likewise, a significant negative relationship exists between marital status and indulgence in procrastination and between work experience and indulgence in procrastination. Furthermore, the results of multiple regression analysis reveals that organizational culture, self-esteem, self-efficacy and self-regulation jointly predict indulgence in procrastination and that only self-esteem independently predicted procrastination. The results of analyses of variance show that both self-esteem and self-regulation had a significant independent main effect on indulgence in procrastination. The t-test analysis result indicates that organizational culture has a significant influence on indulgence in procrastination. The findings imply that organizational culture, self-esteem, self-efficacy, and self-regulation are significant predictors of indulgence in procrastinating behaviour among civil servants in Oyo state. The paper recommends that employers should take cognizance of these predictors in their intervention programmes to boost employees' productivity and reduce indulgence in procrastination.
