This study examined the effect of job commitment on productivity among lower cadre employees in Lagos state Nigeria The study adopted a survey research design. The Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (ORQ) was adopted in this study. Two hundred and sixty three junior workers were randomly selected. The male participants were 159 (60%) and 104 (40%) were females. Their ages range from 21-42years with the mean of 32.6years.168 (64%) participants had spent above 3 years and 95(36%) had spent less than 6 years. Two hypotheses were raised and tested. The findings revealed a significant contribution of remuneration package in predicting workers’ productivity and a significant relationship between remuneration packages and workers’ morale. It was recommended that management must ensure that employee’s remuneration package is paid as and when due since their job satisfaction is very much related to enhanced productivity. It was concluded that remuneration systems are very crucial in today’s organization. The type of system will determine the caliber of staff and the retention ability of an organization.
