dc.description.abstractThe study, which adopted ex post facto research design, investigated the influence of sex role expectations on perceived work performance. A total of three hundred (309) employees were drawn from two multinational corporations in Nigeria. In all, two hundred and five (205) were males representing 66.6%, while the remaining one hundred and nine (109) were females representing 33.7% of the total participants. Their age ranged between 19-58 yrs with a mean age of 31.40 yrs (S.D = 7.03). Two hypotheses were tested in the course of the study. The result obtained revealed that there was a significant difference between employees high on male expected characteristics and those low on male expected characteristics on perceived work performance, (t(2, 294,) = 2.339 ;P<.05). However there was no significant differences between employees form Procter and Gamble and those from Fan Milk on perceived work performance, (t(2, 294,) = 1.517 ; P >.05). Based on the outcome of the results obtained, conclusions were drawn and recommendations made with emphasis on the importance of employees’ characteristics in selection and placement in organizationsen_US
