Topic: Individual And Situational Factors As Predictors Of Workplace Deviant Behaviour And The Mediating Roles Of Organizational Culture.

Description: Workplace deviant behaviours have been identified as a key problem in today s organization, being private or public. Therefore, understanding workplace deviant behaviours, either at interpersonal or organizational levels is more important than ever for survival of our organizations and the society at large. There is a need for empirical findings on factors predicting and sustaining deviant behaviours in our workplace and how organizational culture could mediates the influence of these identified variables. This understanding is important in order to avoid a chaotic work environment, because these behaviours are pervasive and costly, financially, socially and psychologically to the individual and organizations, especially in developing economies like ours, Nigeria.

Psychosocial predictors of Entrepreneurial Intention among Undergraduates in Lagos State.

Research Details

The study is designed to examine the influence of resiliency and demographic factors tribe and gender on entrepreneurial intention among undergraduate students . The study adopted a cross sectional survey design, while stratified sampling technique was employed in selecting 600 students across the eight faculties in the Ojo campus of the university. Two standardized scales: 21-item seven-dimension entrepreneurial orientation scale by Schmidt, Bohnenberger, Panizzon, Marcon, Toivonen and Lampinen 2018 and 6-item brief resilience scale BRS by Smith, Dalen, Wiggins, Tooley, Christopher and Bernard 2008 was used for data collection. Three hypotheses were raised: Students scoring higher on resilience will significantly score higher on entrepreneurial intention compared to those scoring lower on resilience; female undergraduate students will score significantly higher on entrepreneurial intention compared to male undergraduate students and undergraduates who are Ibo will score significantly higher on entrepreneurial intention compared to the Yoruba undergraduates. The expected results will be discussed and recommendations will be made based on outcome of the study for future studies based on some identified limitations of the study.
