The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship of employeesÂ’ perceptions of organizational politics and employee outcomes (turnover intentions, employee engagement, job satisfaction and counterproductive work behaviours) in an important yet neglected service sector-the higher education institutes. For the purpose of this study, data were collected from 678 faculty members working in the higher education institutes (HEIs) through selfadministered questionnaire. Descriptive statistics, reliability analysis, correlation and regression analysis were applied for data analysis. Results revealed that POP was negatively related with job satisfaction, employee engagement whereas it was positively related with employee turnover intentions and counterproductive work behaviours. Further, policy makers are advised to design and implement clear policies and procedures to reduce the influence of politics in order to enhance the performance of faculty members. Results and implications of the study are discussed in the end.

Key words: Perceived organizational politics, Higher education, Employee outcomes, Organizational identification, Service sector
