A PARADIGM FOR REDUCING WORK RELATED STRESS AND FACILITATING JOB SATISFACTION
The fight against corrupt practices in Nigeria, relating to public procurement, award of contracts and fiscal discipline has in the past few years been conceptualized as Due Process Mechanism. This mechanism ensures that certain processes are taken by public officials to ensure that things are done properly, and as when they are supposed. The process was also adopted to ensure that the gap between role expectations and role behaviour of public servant are narrowed. This paper examines the extent to which stress could be a function of non-normative behaviour, viz non adherence to the Due Process Mechanism and its relationship with Job satisfaction. The paper posits that reducing work related stress by adhering to the Due Process Mechanism could significantly increase job satisfaction.
