Abstract:

The job satisfaction of employees occupies the important place in the field of human resource management. Faculty of higher education institutes make a big community of this sector. They train, teach and lead their students to work efficiently in the interest of society. Therefore, keeping in view the present scenario of society, educational institutes and the importance of job satisfaction of employees working in the institutions the present study was planned to assess the level of job satisfaction of employees in selected state agricultural universities and traditional universities. Data was collected by using self-structured questionnaire based on Herzberg’s motivation and hygiene theory from 360 faculty members selected by using simple random sampling technique. Job satisfaction was measured on an ordered 5 point likert scale. The data was presented as mean score for each characteristic and employees were categorized into low, medium and high level of job satisfaction. Findings of the study revealed thatall faculty members from selected state agricultural universities (SAUs) were highly satisfied with sense of responsibilities followed by work itself as intrinsic factors and social status followed by job security and salary as extrinsic factors of job satisfaction. Faculty members from traditional universities were highly satisfied with opportunity to achieve and recognition & rewards as intrinsic factors and highly satisfied with social status of their job from extrinsic factors. Overall analysis of data showed that 56.6 percent faculty members from all SAUs and 42.24 percent of faculty members from all traditional universities had the medium level of job satisfaction. In conclusion, majority of the respondents were found to be moderately satisfied with their jobs and organizations. Therefore, there is a need to make certain improvements so that satisfaction of the employees could be increased which can further lead to more productivity.
