Abstract: Motivation can be seen as the processes that account for an individual’s intensity, direction and persistence of effort toward achieving a goal. This study examines the motivation strategies and organizational goal attainment in a private Nigerian Teaching Hospital. Multistage sampling technique was used in selecting 48 respondents. A well structured questionnaire was used to interview the respondents. Data obtained were subjected to statistical analysis (descriptive, correlation and t-test). Result shows that most of the respondents are well educated with the minimum level of Ordinary National Diploma (OND), which could enhance their productivity and performance. More than 78% of respondents had at least five years working experience. The result further revealed correlation coefficient (0.3762) of the employee in the organization which was statistically 5% level of significance. This implied that there is a strong relationship between employee motivation and the organization performance in the study area. Also, the t-test result shows a t-value of 0.64 which indicated that there is no statistically difference between the motivated and demotivated employee. This might be as a result of insignificant number of the acclaimed unmotivated workers compared with the motivated ones in the study area. In conclusion, motivation increases the chance of achieving optimum employee performance and attainment of organizational objectives, therefore, better ways of motivating employees should be adopted in other to achieve optimal organizational goals.

ORJINTA, HOPE IFEOMA ; VEN. DR. ONUORA, JKJ; Dr. (MRS) AGUBATA, NONYE, S.

Abstract: This study investigated whether managers use classification shifting to reclassify recurring expenses into non-recurring ones, placing more emphasis on the effect of audit committee in curbing such opaque manipulations. A sample of 75 quoted non-financial firms from three Sub-Sahara African countries (Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa) was used for the period of ten years spanning 2008 to 2017. The study employed ex-post facto and cross-sectional research design in analyzing secondary data collected. Using a methodology similar to McVay (2006) and a sample of 750 Sub-Sahara African firm-year observations, our result revealed that classification shifting is less prevalent in firms whose audit committee is characterized by more meetings, more financial expert members and more independent directors as this leads to lower levels of recurring items misclassification. Specifically, our result discovered that audit committee independence has negative and significant effect on classification shifting which was statistically significant at 10% level of significance while audit financial expertise and audit committee diligence have negative and significant effect on classification shifting at 1% and 5% levels of significance respectively. The findings showed that about 68.4% of changes in total variation in the classification shifting of earnings management can be attributed to the joint effect of all the explanatory variables while about 31.6% was unaccounted for thereby captured by stochastic error term. However, based on the following findings, we suggest that users of financial statements should take account of firms audit committee composition when evaluating firms core earnings.
