This descriptive-correlation study investigated the diversity composition of the workforce of St. Paul University System (SPUS)-member schools and created an understanding on how the primary and secondary dimensions of workforce diversity affect their job-related attitudes. This study, thus sought to produce findings that served as a basis for a proposed model for workforce diversity management for SPU System schools. A total of 187 full-time and probationary academic teaching personnel of the three tertiary member school of SPU System took part in this study.
A self-made questionnaire for gathering the primary and secondary dimensions of workforce diversity was developed by the researcher. Smith, Hulin and Kendal‘s Job Descriptive Index (JDI), Rabinda Kanungo‘s Job Involvement Questionnaire (JIQ) and John Meyer‘s Organizational Commitment Scale (OCS) were used to assess the workforce job-related attitudes. Data were treated in-depth through several descriptive and inferential statistics; percentage and frequency, mean, standard deviation, Pearson correlation, t-test, and one way- ANOVA.
It was found that the workforce of SPU System were highly satisfied with their nature of work and gave a moderately highly level of satisfaction with their present pay, supervision, opportunities for promotion and people in their present job. It was also revealed that a neutral description was arrived at workforce job involvement. The findings also revealed an ―agree‖ description on the workforce attachment based on their affective commitment and a neutral description on continuance and normative commitment. Based on the result of the different inferential statistical analysis it was found out that a significant relationship exists between primary dimensions of workforce diversity and the different measures of job-related attitudes and secondary dimensions of workforce diversity and the different measures of job-related attitudes.
