S.O. Adebayo and U.C. Nwabuoku
 
Abstract: This study examined the influence of conscientiousness and perceived organizational support on employee absenteeism. A total of 251 workers were randomly drawn from among the non-teaching staff of the University of Ado-Ekiti, Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria. The study employed the multiple regression analysis and the t-independent test analysis for the testing of the hypothesis. Results revealed that conscientiousness and perceived organizational support did not predict employee absenteeism. Also, results showed that there was no significant effect of sex on conscientiousness, perceived organizational support and absenteeism among the employees. The findings were discussed in light of previous literature.
