Abstract

The objective of the study is to measure the impact of downsizing on employee performance while using motivational factors (turnover intention, employee commitment, job security) as moderating variables in private sector Universities of Nagarhar Province, Afghanistan. Data for the study is collected through questionnaire using 5 Likert scale from a sample of 200 faculty members. A total of 200 questionnaires were distributed among faculty members out of whom 186 were received back. The findings of the study revealed that all motivational factors have a positive impact on employee performance whereas organizational downsizing has a negative influence on employee performance. Moreover, apart from TOI all other independent variables have a significant influence on employee performance. The moderation analysis reveals that motivational factors moderate organizational downsizing impact on employee performance positively.
