Abstract

We use measures of working environment, rewards, strategic leadership and supportive culture to explain private university lecturers’ career motivation in Malaysia. We employed SEM-PLS 3.0 to analyse the self-administrated questionnaires of 200 respondents from various private higher education intuitions in Selangor, Malaysia. The results indicated that work-based office infrastructure and standard operating procedures influence private university lecturers and motivate faculty members. Thus, private universities should motivate academicians to focus on their career advancement while combining the employers’ long-term sustainable competitive advantage with a favourable working environment.
