Abstract: This study attempts to explain the work behaviour of some migrant workers by incorporating differences in their need orientation as the key explanatory variable. This, it does by empirically examining the relationship between the particular need orientation brought to the work situation by the migrant workers and their work behaviour measured in term of work attendance in the context of a stated research hypothesis, using the migrant workers of the Nigerian Sugar Company, Bacita, Nigeria as the study population. The results show that the workers need orientation has independent effects on the migrant, workers attendance behaviour. That is in general, the personal value system (orientation) that individuals have has influence on the attendance motivation.
