The problem of low job performance among non-teaching staff in Nigerian Colleges of Education (COE) has become a major concern to stakeholders. However, most studies on job performance focused on job design and demographic factors with little or no attention on the influence of organisational factors in COE. This study therefore, investigated Organisational factors as predictors of job performance of non-teaching staff in COE in Southwestern Nigeria. The descriptive survey design which is ‘ex-post facto’ in nature was used. A total number of 10 public COE comprising four federal and six state COE were selected using stratified random sampling technique. Proportional to size sampling technique was used in selecting 1000 non-teaching (700 junior and 300 senior) staff from the COE. Two Research Questions were raised to guide the study. The Job Performance Scale was used to collect data. Data were analysed using inferential statistics. The job performance (3.26 0.28) was rated moderate. The Organisational Factors jointly predicted job performance and contributed 37% to its variance. The relative contributions of the organisational factors to the variance of job performance were: OC ( =1.57; t = 1.66); RS ( =1.40; t = 2.28); TD ( = 0.91; t = 1.91); WE ( = 0.82; t = 1.78) and LS ( = 0.62; t = 1.25). The study recommended that constant training and development, good reward system, effective organisational communication, conducive work environment, and good leadership style should be worked on so as to improve the job performance of non-teaching staff in the Nigerian Colleges of Education.
