Factors that influence employee performance in Kenya wildlife service
Understanding the factors that influence employee performance is vital because the organization will reinforce those factors to improve performance. State Corporations and Private Companies play a key role in the Kenyan economy; however adequate attention has not been focused on understanding the factors that influence employee performance. The main objective of this research was to determine the factors that influence employee performance in Kenya Wildlife Service. A survey questionnaire was designed and utilized to collect data regarding several factors that affect employee performance. The data was collected and analyzed statistically to support or reject the propositions in the research. The findings of the research indicated that seven factors predominantly influenced employee performance. The results provided support for the research proposal that a number of factors influence employee performance in Kenya Wildlife Service. From the study it was concluded that organizational factors such as the organizational structure, work environment, non-material incentives, and individual factors such as knowledge, skills, attitude and rewards influence employee performance. This study examined factors that influence employee performance using a descriptive case study of Kenya wildlife service. To this end therefore the same study should be carried out in other organizations to determine if the same results would be obtained. The study used a sample size of 316 respondents and thus the study suggests that for other studies determining factors that influence employee performance, a larger sample size should be used to obtain more accurate conclusions on this subject.
