The study investigates the possible gender-related differences in the determinants of job performance. The parameters of performance included were (a) absence, (b) performance evaluations and (c) commitment to the organisation. The results indicated some similarities as also some critical differences in the determinants of job performance of the two sexes. Factors extrinsic to the job (i.e. related to family) had impact on job performance of both the groups but more so in the case of female workers. The negative impact of such off-the-job problems was set off by their higher satisfaction with the firm. The implications of these findings are subsequently discussed.
