Colleges of education can achieve their stated goals with careful and well-defined organisational culture, climate and employees’ evaluation system. The study examined the correlation between organisational factors and job performance of non-teaching staff of colleges of education. Relationship between each of the organisational factors (climate, culture and performance appraisal) and performance of non-teaching staff were examined. Non-experimental design of correlation type was adopted. Stratified and convenience sampling techniques were employed to select 234 non-teaching staff of colleges of education. Adapted Organisational Factors Questionnaire (OFQ) and Job Performance Questionnaire (JPQ) with 0.891 and 0.801 were used for data collection. The result showed that organisational factors are positively and significantly correlate to job performance (r- value = 0.873, p=0.000). The implication of this is that organisational culture, climate and performance evaluation have a positive correlation with non-teaching staff’s job performance. The study therefore recommended that colleges’ administrators should consider improving organisational factors in order to increase staff’s performance for global competiveness. Moreover, administrators are to create a sustainable working climate that will promote productivity of non-teaching staff via effective communication and participatory approach.
