Studies on employee performance in organizations have revealed that, a well-motivated employee, favorable working conditions and fair treatment of workers promotes productivity in organizations. However, nowadays, the performance of employees in many organizations is not satisfactory as a result of low motivation, unfavorable working conditions and unjust treatment of workers. To address this problem, this paper provides an insight on how these variables (motivation, working conditions and perceived organizational justice) can promote high performance of employees in organizations.

Key words; Employee Performance, Motivation, Working Condition, Perceived Organizational Justice
