Abstract

The summary of the dissertation submitted to the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka in 1998 as a partial fulfillment of M. Sc. in Management programme.

It seems very rare to find a good empirical study between job attitudes and job performance of university teachers, especially in the Sri Lankan context. It is also equally true that whatever the measures and evaluation systems adopted, the performance of university teachers in Sri Lanka is not still comprehensively researched by respective organizations to determine whether their service is a dedicated sustainable effort motivated by their career to put on their respective organizations as healthy as possible. This is the research gap in the literature that will be addressed in this empirical study. The importance of this empirical study lies in assessing the performance and the effects of job attitudes on job performance of university teachers. Nevertheless, the study will be only a replication of studies of the relationship of Job Satisfaction and Organisational Commitment to and Job Performance. This empirical study intends to provide a support as a contribution to the existing theoretical attitudes - performance relationship. The results show that a positive relationship between job satisfaction and job performance of university teachers in EUSL is acceptably proved as expected and the relationship of organizational commitment to job performance seems not meaningful.
