Abstract

A cursory look at management literatures reveal that the term ‘self-actualization’ vis-à-vis organizational performance is less considered. Most published works in the field centered largely on low-level need while high-level need like self esteem need and self-actualization as envisage by Maslow’s and Neo Human Relations theorists are rarely emphasized. Thus, this study set out to examine the effect of employee’s self-actualization and organizational performance in Nigeria from Maslow’s and Neo Human Relation perspectives. A descriptive survey design in which structured questionnaire and personal observation is utilized. A total number of one hundred and two (102) respondents were selected, examined and their responses were used for data analysis. Inferential statistics was used to test the research hypothesis and result with interpretation was done under each table. The finding revealed that employee’s self-actualization enhances employee’s commitment which in turn leads to increase productivity and organizational performance.

Keywords: employee, self-actualization, organization, productivity and performance
