The study examined how remuneration affects employee commitment in
organizations taking a case study of Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI) in
Kampala. Three main objectives guided the study which included; to identify
the forms of remuneration in Infectious Diseases Institute, to assess how
remuneration lead to employee commitment in Infectious Diseases Institute
and to examine the effects of poor remuneration in IDI.
The descriptive survey design was employed to harmonize both quantitative
and Qualitative data. In a population of over 150 employees, a sample size of
108 respondents was determined and used for data collection using both
interviews and questionnaires. Data was analyzed using Statistical Package for
Social Scientist (SPSS) and presented in tables in which information was
interpreted using themes, explanations, simple percentages and frequencies.
The study established that both direct and indirect forms of remuneration are
used at IDI where by employees are entitled to monthly salaries and allowances
as direct forms and medical insurance, holiday packages, annual bonuses,
provision of drinking water among others. Such remuneration packages
directly influence employee commitment by motivating their level of teamwork,
improved time management, low level of absenteeism, desire to work for extra
time and low staff turnover which all leads to high commitment and efficiency
within the organization. Generally, findings established that IDI’s system of
remuneration is objectively good hence its consistency in service delivery. On
the other hand, it was established that poor remuneration can lead to
unprofessionalism, employee turnover and delayed schedules among others.
This can eventually lead to skimpy delivery of services and inefficiency in
management of the organization.
The study recommended that In addition to the present remuneration packages
at IDI, there should be applicability of other intangible benefits like direct appreciation from a boss, likelihood for promotion and a much better or attractive working environment. In addition, the organization should match monthly salaries with the prevailing inflation rates in the country and to ensure that salaries match with the employee’s level of education, creativity and experiences.
