It has therefore become imperative for organisations to realise the significance of an employee and also the device strategic means through which an employee can be influenced in order to develop positive job attitudes that can lead to higher performance. Hence, the study aims to examine the relationship between job attitude and employee performance by using the non-academic staff of Bauchi State University Gadau as unit of analysis. An aggregate of two hundred and seventy questionnaires were distributed non- academic staff of BASUG based on systematic random sampling and data collected was analysed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The outcome of the analysis shows that there is positive and significant relationship between job attitude and employee performance.

Thepaper recommends that employers should prioritise important motivational factors that will bring about positive job attitude so as to achieve highest performance level of an employee. Furthermore, the study will serve as a policy guide to the management of the Nigerian Universities in areas relating to employee performance improvement through job attitude and it will also further make an impetus the field of organisational behaviour and human resource management.
