Determinants of Job Satisfaction in Academic Professionals of Pakistan
The purpose of this study is to explore and analyze the determinants of job satisfaction in academic professional of Pakistan. The job satisfaction was considered dependent variable and human resource management (HRM) practices (training and development, performance appraisal, career planning, and compensation) were predictor variables. Linear regression model was used in this study that demonstrated the overall effect of variable and data was collected from faculty members of four (two public and two private) different universities of Pakistan. It has been found that performance appraisal and compensation are important determinants of job satisfaction among faculty members. Therefore, the management of universities in Pakistan should give considerable emphasis on performance appraisal. Interestingly, the analysis of means variation and independent t-test did not demonstrate a difference between faculty members of public and private universities in terms of job satisfaction and HRM practices. Future investigations should explore the underlying mechanism between the HRM practices and job satisfaction.
