Md Ruhul Amin, Md Abu Sina

Abstract


Job satisfaction is an affective or emotional reaction to the job, resulting from the incumbent‟s comparison of actual outcomes with the required outcomes. Job satisfaction plays an important role in motivating any person towards better performance. In the study, job satisfaction is considered as sum of the scores obtained by Brayfield and Rothe scale with the help of structured schedule. 10 variables i.e., job security, promotional opportunities, present job status, present job salary, working environment, participation in management, retirement benefit, entertainment opportunity, washroom facility and payment system of salary are selected for measuring job satisfaction of the secondary school teachers. It is found that the secondary school teachers are satisfied on four variables i.e., working environment, participation in management, washroom facility and entertainment opportunity but they are not satisfied on six variables i.e., job security, promotional opportunities, present job status, present job salary, payment system of salary, and retirement benefit. If the Government and management of the schools consider the recommendations suggested by the researchers, job satisfaction of the secondary school teachers will be enhanced. Consequently better educational service will be provided by the teachers and the students would get a better educational environment.
