Abstract

This study sought to assess the link between Organizational work life programmes, and employee work outcomes among lecturers in public universities in Kenya. The target population comprised of 6299 full time lecturers and a sample of 391 lecturers was chosen by the use of the multi-stage sampling procedure. The Correlational survey design was used in order to determine the statistical relationship between the Independent and Dependent variables. Primary data was collected by use of questionnaires. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics where correlation analysis and linear regression were used. The study found that while work life programmes are available in the public universities and they enhanced positive attitudes towards work, their availability did not automatically lead to improved performance. Lecturers did not also consider their compensation as adequate and they took additional work when they had time off work to supplement their income. This affected the attainment of organizational and personal goals negatively. Remuneration was also found to have a moderating effect on the relationship between organizational work life programmes and employee work outcomes. The researcher recommends that the lecturer’s pay to constitute of performance based incentives. In addition, a similar research should be done in other schools in public universities other than the Business schools since the conditions under study are different. Key words: Correlation survey design; remuneration; work life programmes; work outcomes
