Employee innovativeness and achievement motivation: A public and a private organization’s experience
MetadataShow full item record
This paper compares the level of innovativeness and achievement motivation of teachers from a public and a private college. It further aimed to correlate these main variables to the organizational orientation, age, type of institution, and sex of respondents. The 122 full-time faculty members from the College of Arts and Sciences of CPU (private) and WVSU (public) were subjected to three tests: the level of innovativeness, achievement motivation and the organizational orientation tests. Comparing the CPU and WVSU CAS teachers, the faculty members from both CPU and WVSU CAS were moderately innovative. Those from WVSU CAS worked in a formalized and relatively rigid or mechanistic organization, whereas, the faculty members in CPU CAS worked in a mixed organization. Teachers from both institutions had a high achievement motivation. Innovativeness level was significantly influenced by achievement motivation level possessed by the teachers and organizational orientation. It was not, however, influenced by age, sex and type of institution. On the other hand, achievement motivation level could be explained by sex and age of respondents. The type of institution and organizational orientation had no bearing with the achievement motivation of the teachers.
