Abstract: The paper aims to study key organisational determinants that would eventually enhance the behaviour of employees in the educational sector, particularly in terms of increased job satisfaction and reduced turnover. The study reviews existing literature systematically to present insights into the organisational determinants that best shape employee behaviour. Only credible databases are used while extracting relevant studies. The study yields the conclusion that educational institutions must ensure fair treatment of employees at all levels, along with practising distributed leadership throughout the organisation. Moreover, the servant leadership style is affirmed to be the best for upper management in order to enhance employee behaviour and garner their commitment towards the organisational objectives. The contribution of the study lies within its implications of generalisability since the context of diverse nations has been reviewed. On the other hand, it also directs opportunities for future researchers employing increasing the number of studies to be reviewed.
