Mubbsher M. Khan, Maryam Jabbar


The question of how to retain the existing employees is answered by attractive compensation, friendly leadership, balance between work life conflicts and healthy work environment. This study looks into this phenomenon by seeking empirical justification in this regard and considering the work-life conflicts, compensation, leadership and working conditions as main contributory factors towards employees’ job performance. The goal of this research work is to answer the queries which prevail in the minds of employers in corporate sector of Pakistan due to various organizational factors which significantly influence the employees’ job performance. The study identifies the those independent variables whose factors have significant effect on employees’ motivation level and that in turn improve employees’ job performance using original data collected from employees in eight companies. A 5-point Likert scale rated questionnaire was used to collect data from respondents. The scales used in the study were adopted from past research works and were based on five-point Likert scale. Convenience sampling technique was used to collect data from two hundred and forty respondents in Lahore, Pakistan. Out of two hundred and forty questionnaires distributed, only two hundred questionnaires were received back (Response rate = 83%) which are used in the data analysis. The analysis entails that all the variables of the study prevail in corporate sector of Pakistan except the effect working conditions on employee job performance as shown by the insignificant correlation (.094) among working conditions and employee job performance.  Independent variables such as leadership and compensation had a significant positive impact on the dependent variable, employee job performance (.198** & .157* respectively), whereas the independent variable of work-life conflicts had a significant but negative correlation (-.147*) with employee job performance. The most important evidence which this study purports, as far as it relates to an emerging market economy, is that working conditions has a weak an insignificant relation with employees’ job performance.
