ABSTRACTObjective - The objective of the study was to evaluate the level of job satisfaction among the staff of ACHARYA SHRI BHIKSHU GOVERNMENT HOSPITAL.Methods - The study was carried out in March’2013 and Questionnaire Sample Method was used.Breifing - Employee job satisfaction is the fulfillment, gratification and enjoyment that comes from work. It’s not just the money or the fringe benefits, but the feelings employees receive from the work itself. Hospital is a highly labour intensive organization, where the satisfaction of employees is vital for achieving the organizational objectives, since there is high employee end customer interaction. There are two basic sources of job satisfaction-- the employees’ pride in their work and the work environment both physical and interpersonal. Review of literature suggests that among other things, the ability to deliver health care service, the quality of the work, the opportunity to learn and express creativity, the sense of pride in their profession impact job satisfaction of employees in a healthcare setting. Individuals may vary to the degree in which each of these factors contributes more or less to their own job satisfaction. But the end result is that high job satisfaction typically leads to career success for employees and talent retention for organizations. This study aims at finding out job satisfaction level of staff in a tertiary care Hospital. The study was conducted for a sample size of 50 medical professionals (Doctors and Nurses). One of the primary reasons for evaluating employee satisfaction is to improve the quality of patient care and to retain qualified health professionals. This paper would like to assess the job satisfaction level of employees, identify the factors influencing job satisfaction and offer suggestions to improve the job satisfaction level of employees for retention.Results – The response rate was 80%.The key results were that overall job satisfaction was that the percentage of employees which were somewhat satisfied was moderately high (56%).However there are differences in satisfaction models between different categories of personnel. In addition, there are significant differences in the correlation between job satisfaction among the various groups of personnel. |
