In order to attain a desired level of job performance in any work setting, a number of factors are often considered. This paper discussed how work ethic affects workers job performance by evaluating how either strong work ethics (SWE) or weak work ethics (WWE) can contribute to encouraging or discouraging workers job performance. Although instances of excellent performance amidst unethical practices have been recorded however, a sustainable performance can only be achieved through strong work ethics. The extent to which employee encourages integrity, sense of responsibility, quality, self-discipline and sense of teamwork in work discharge determine either strong work ethics or weak work ethics contribute to job performance level. Literature review and theoretical ground point towards the need for workers' to promote ethical practice and discourage unethical acts which can undermine corporate image and excellent performance. This study proposes that strong work ethics results in excellent work performance.
