Rewarding, Job Satisfaction, Saudi Arabia


Job satisfaction is essential because it determines an employee's responsibility, dependability, and punctuality and reduces long-term labor staff revenue. However, there is a lack of research examining the phenomenon of job satisfaction in the healthcare setting and the significance of rewarding and retaining employees in the healthcare field, particularly in Saudi Arabia. This study investigated the effect of reward and recognition on job satisfaction, as well as the perceptions of employees and factors influencing job satisfaction. This study used a descriptive, explanatory design to investigate the effect of rewards and recognition on job satisfaction among administrative employees of tertiary care accredited institutions in Al Ahsa City, Saudi Arabia. A simple random sampling technique was used to collect 300 samples. The Administrative employees concurred that recognition and rewards significantly impacted their job satisfaction and exhibited positive attitudes toward recognition and rewards. There is a strong relationship between compensation and job satisfaction. In addition, recognition strongly correlates with most job satisfaction dimensions. According to the study, Recognition and Rewarding substantially affect job satisfaction.
