Abstract

Diversity is a growing concern for organizations today. This follows the challenge posed by the distrust, lack of collaboration and poor relations expressed between groups or departments in the organization. This study investigated the role of organizational equity in workplace cohesiveness in four GSM telecommunication firms in Bayelsa State, Nigeria. The study adopted a correlational design, with data generated using the questionnaire instrument 98 workers in four (4) telecommunication firms in Bayelsa State. A total of three hypotheses were tested, addressing the relationship between organizational equity and three measures of workplace cohesiveness – social relations, task relations and communality. Findings from the test shows that organizational equity has a significant and positive association with workplace cohesiveness, that way, enhancing outcomes of social relations, task relations and communality, specifically in GSM telecommunication firms in Bayelsa State. It was concluded that through an increased focus on creating fair and transparent work systems, reflective of organizational equity, the management of GMS telecommunication firms in Bayelsa State can effectively advance their cohesiveness outcomes.
