Abstract

Nowadays, job satisfaction is among the most important elements for every individual in the workplace.  Many businesses have started to concentrate on their employees, recognizing that employees are among the organization's best assets and serve as powerful ties with external audiences. In this matter, companies need to identify the determinants that influence job satisfaction. Based on the literature review, this study will further identify the influence of job satisfaction such as rewards and compensation. To attain the objective, the quantitative method was used. In this research study, questionnaires were prepared via an online platform (Google form) and distributed to the targeted respondents who are the employees of FELCRA Negeri Pahang amounting to 169 employees. 200 questionnaires were distributed, and 188 questionnaires returned constituted an 84.50% response rate. Based on the data collected, data analysis was performed using frequency analysis, descriptive analysis, validity analysis, reliability analysis, correlation analysis, multiple regression analysis, and research objective analysis. The results indicated that rewards and compensation are among the independent variables that showed a significant relationship with job satisfaction. Therefore, several recommendations were identified, including strengthening human resource management, improving employee praise and recognition, maintaining, or increasing employee welfare during a pandemic, and providing recognition to employees.
