Deviant behaviour in
the workplace could significantly affect the organization's performance. Ignoring
an employee may influence their comportment which may result in negative
deviant behaviour. However, if management can control the negative behaviour,
the employee’s performance will improve to match that of the more
productive employees in the organization. In particular, this paper analyses
peculiar behaviour in higher education institutions and the factors driving its
emergence. The results show that the incidence of deviant behaviour in higher education institutions is low. Justice
and satisfaction were found to be the drivers of deviant workplace behaviour
(DWB) in educational institutions. A positive organizational environment exists
when there is good communication
between superiors and subordinates and a transparent and fair operating system.
These factors can reduce deviant behaviour. Results from the study show that
individual employee factors presumably determine this peculiar behaviour.
Moreover, employees' commitment can be a factor in the conduct of deviant behaviour.
