Abstract

There is no doubt that satisfied and committed employees are one of the organization’s top resources, yet no research regarding this facet has been conducted in Cavite State University Naic. This study regarding job satisfaction and organizational commitment of faculty members was conducted to explore maximum areas of development that may contribute to the achievement of organization’s goals and objectives. Descriptive-correlational research was employed and data were gathered using the Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) questionnaire by Spector (1994) and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (OCQ) by Allen and Meyer (2002). Fifty faculty members served as the respondents of the study. The investigation revealed that there is no significant difference in the job satisfaction index and organizational commitment level between male and female faculty members. The faculty members are moderately satisfied with supervision and nature of work, satisfied with their co-workers, pay, communication, promotion, fringe benefits, and contingent rewards, but they are dissatisfied with the operating conditions in the campus. Furthermore, the faculty members showed weak level of affective and continuance commitments, and moderate level of normative commitment. Moreover, there is a moderate positive relationship between the over-all job satisfaction index and over-all organizational commitment level of the faculty members. It is recommended that the administration devise ways and means to improve the operational procedures where the faculty members showed dissatisfaction. It is further recommended to investigate the role and impact of human resource management practices (HRM) on job satisfaction and organizational commitment among the academic employees.
