Description This study examined workers’ welfare and job commitment in Rivers State Ministry of Health. The research design adopted in this study was the descriptive survey. Herzberg’s Two- Factor Theory formed the theoretical framework of the study. The population of the study comprised 767 health workers. As a result, the random sampling technique was applied, while the sample size was determined using the Taro Yamane formula. Hence, the sample size was 263. The instrument for the study was a questionnaire titled: Workers’ Welfare and Job Commitment in Public Health Sector Questionnaire (WOWJCPHS). A total of 263 copies of the questionnaire were administered to the respondents. The reliability of the instrument showed a correlation coefficient index of 0.80 which was considered very reliable using the Cronbach’s Alpha. Mean and standard deviation was used to analyze the research questions based on a four-point rating scale of very high extent, high extent, low extent and very low extent. The hypotheses were tested at a significance level of 0.05 using the PPMCC (Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient). The findings of the study revealed that there is a very strong positive relationship between statutory welfare and job commitment. The study also revealed that there is a very strong positive relationship between voluntary welfare and job commitment. The study strongly recommends that government and organisations should focus their attention on providing welfare packages that serve as incentives for workers. Hence, the government should realise that health workers are also human beings with a lot of personal and family responsibilities.
