Abstract—The labour-management relationship is often referred to as a natural adversary relationship, a disconnect, grounded in conflict. This study therefore examined the contribution of staff job satisfaction to their level of job involvement in a private institution. This study adopted a survey research design. One hundred and fifty (150) participants randomly selected completed the psychological tests. Multiple regression was used to analyse the data collected. The result showed that job satisfaction and demographic factors jointly predicted sixty four percent (64%) significant variance on job involvement. There is significant independent prediction of job involvement by age, job satisfaction and some characteristics which are supervision, fringe benefit, contingent reward, operating procedure, coworkers and communication. The implications of the result were discussed in line with corporate governance and conflict resolution.
Index Terms—Conflict resolution, Disconnect, Human capital relationships, Job satisfaction and involvement.
