AN EVALUATION OF EMPLOYEES’ JOB SATISFACTION IN THREE PRIVATE ORGANIZATIONS IN EDO STATE, NIGERIA
The aim of the study is to investigate the level of job satisfaction among employees in private organizations in Edo State, Nigeria. A descriptive survey method was adopted. Questionnaire was developed to collect data from 456 employees from three private organizations in Edo State, Nigeria. Overall, 81.7% of the employees indicated that they were somewhat satisfied or not satisfied with their current job. The findings revealed that the employees in private organizations in Edo State, Nigeria are satisfied with dimensions such as workplace culture, administration and supervision, performance evaluation. On the other hand, they are dissatisfied with roles and responsibilities, rewards (salaries/benefits), and opportunities. The relevance of this study cannot be over emphasized as the satisfaction of employees in any organization is paramount to the existence and survival of the organization. Outcome of the study will form bases for policy formulation and implementation. The study will inform management of private organizations about the importance to ensure employee satisfaction in their organization if their organization will stand the test of the prevalent business competitive environment. The study was intended to cover all the workers in private organizations in Edo State, Nigeria. Unfortunately only three organizations were used and this makes it almost impossible to generalize the findings for workers in private sectors all over Nigeria. Therefore, the issue of job satisfaction of employees in private organizations can be examined further with a wider population. This study will add to the existing body of knowledge regarding job satisfaction. It will be source of information and referencing point to students, academics and other researchers undertaking similar studies.
