Abstract

When employees feel dissatisfied with the nature of job they do, their level of commitment could be deliberately reduced and since employees are the engine room of an organization, their dissatisfaction with the nature of job they do could also pose a threat to the overall performance of the organization. The main objective of this study is to examine the impact of job satisfaction on employee’s performance, with the selected public enterprise in Awka, Anambra State as a case study. In view of the above cause, data was collected from primary sources. 286 copies of questionnaire were administered to the respondents and 250 copies of questionnaire were returned successfully which was used as the bases for the research analysis. Ordinary Chi square was the statistical tool used in analyzing the data. The research findings revealed that there is a linear relationship between job satisfaction (Job reward/Pay, Promotion, job safety/ security and working condition) and employee’s performance proxy which is employee’s morale. It was concluded on the note that employees are dissatisfied with the working conditions of the organization; it is evident in their responses. It was recommended that the management of the company should provide good working conditions for its employees, so as to boost their morale.
