ABSTRACT The purpose of the study was to establish the effect of provision of fringe benefits and the nature of working conditions under remuneration practices on teachers~ efficiency in secondary schools B U S ia. The study was qualitative and quantitative; and descriptive-correlation research design was used in the study. The researcher used purposive and simple random sampling techniques to select the research participants respectively fi~om selected secondary schools. The target population was 225 and the sample size of the participants was 166. Data was collected using questionnaire as research instrument and analyzed by means of descriptive statistics. namely; frequencies. percentage, and mean. Pearson Correlation Coefficient was used to establish the relationship between remuneration practices and teachers~ efficiency in secondary schools. The findings from the study indicated that 59.2% of the respondents with a high mean of 3.5464 reported that the nature of working conditions were still Gvorable to some emplo\ ces and this reflected undesirable behaviors among the employees. Good working conditions \\ere necessary for all employees for their e ff~ctivc performance in institutions. The stud\ sho\\ ed that the payment of salaries and wages have no direct bearing on teachers~~ performance. The study findings indicated that 70.9% of respondents with a high mean of~ 3.563 I reported that [Hnge benefits like allowances, recognition. promotion and praises still depends on availability of Duds and management’s perception. These benefits had an elect on teachers~ efficiency ~ hen paid after completion of the task. The nature of working conditions \\ as st II favorable in some institutions and this affected the actual perfbrmances in schools. Good working conditions were therefore, pertinent for all employees’ efficiency in any institution. The study findings also indicated a weak correlation between remuneration practices and teachers~ efficiency as Pearson correlation was -.106 and the coefficient of determination was 0.01 12. which is I .12% Ieyel of determination; and this implies that there are other many factors that contribute to teachers~ efficiency. In conclusion, the results of the study indicated that there is a very weak relationship between remuneration practices and teachers~ efficiency~’ in urban secondary schools in Busia.
