I.A. Ayandele and A.P. Akpan

A major concern of managers worldwide is how to arrange the work environment in such a way that it fits the employee and his or her task and brings about optimal performance. Therefore, this study was designed to examine the relationship between workplace ergonomics and employees’ performance in selected banks in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. Five key workplace ergonomics variables were chosen for the study and data were collected from 112 respondents. Descriptive and inferential statistics provided the basis for the analysis. The findings of this study agree with the findings of earlier studies, reinforcing the opinion that there is a significant relationship between workplace ergonomics and employees’ performance.
