Ali Yakubu, Baba Edna
KEYWORDS: Self organisation, Time management, Staff Performance

ABSTRACT:

Self organisation and time management is gradually gaining ground in the field of management due to the inability of many organizations and individuals to achieve their aims and objectives. This art of arranging, organizing, scheduling, and budgeting one’s time for the purpose of generating more effective work and productivity, is solely responsible for the failure or success of many people who hitherto had a promising prospect. The population for this study was made up of 196 respondents who work in the various departments of the institutions studied. Survey design was adopted. The study elicited opinions of the subjects on the impact of self organisation and time management on the performance of staff in the office environment. The entire population was studied because of its manageable size and as a result there was no population sample for the study. The reliability of the instrument was determined through a pilot study on a sample population of 20 secretaries from secondary schools and banks drawn from Idah. The reliability coefficient to test the internal consistency of the instrument was determined by the use of Cronbach-Alpha which gave a reliability co-efficient of 0.83. SPSS was used to analyze the data collected for the study. The result showed a positive impact of self organisation and time management on the performance of office staff because time management is essential in all human activities and serve as a good tool for the attainment of any organizational goals. This study recommends that self organization be inculcated in all staff as a work culture and basic office etiquette necessary for individual and organisational success. It is also recommended that time management be given priority attention and be jealously implemented by both employers and employees for efficiency and increased productivity.
