Title:Demographic and Maslow's Motivation Predictors of Job Satisfaction of Information Technology Artisans in Nigeria
Author(s):Nwagwu, Williams Ezinwa
Subject(s):information technology and work
Abstract:A new artisanship crop moored to information technology has emerged, and it is being heavily embraced in Nigeria. Guided by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, this study examined job satisfaction among the information technology artisans in Nigeria. Job satisfaction was measured by whether the artisans wish to stay on the job, perceive their income as high or low, or consider the profession as having a good prospect; and on a binary scale of yes or no. The study also investigated how the socio-demographic characteristics of the respondents relate to their needs. Data was collected from 950 artisans randomly selected from two major locations in Nigeria with the aid of a questionnaire and an interview schedule. A breakdown of the Maslow’s variables predicted different job satisfaction differently just as the demographic and social characteristics of the respondents predicted the artisans’ needs differently.
