Five hypotheses were stated and tested. Result showed there was a significant influence of workplace violence on psychological well-being [t(-15.418;df=199, p<.05).There was a significant influence of academic qualification on psychological well-being (F(2,198)=6.305; p<.05). age had significant influence on psychological well-being [t(-2.509;df=199, p<.05)]The mean observation however shows that older employees score higher (X=55.06) on psychological well-being than their counterparts (X=51.63). There was also a significant influence of years of experience on psychological well-being {t(-2.039;df=199, p<.05)}.
