Human resource management and impact of job satisfaction on employees’ performance at Nestlé

Job satisfaction is an important aspect of Human Resources Management (HRM). Employees’ attitude towards their job is considered of huge importance for management to determine the employees’ satisfaction levels as well as their work behaviors. Satisfied employees are considered usually productive and efficient workers. Therefore, employees’ job satisfaction and its correlation with organizational performance is a major topic in the field of research. This research seeks to examine if there is any connection between the level of employees’ job satisfaction and the performance of the organization in Nestlé Saudi Arabia. Also, it will determine elements that lead to reaching high levels of employees’ job satisfaction. The research will follow the quantitative analytical descriptive design. A field questionnaire on a sample of 30 employees will be used to collect data. Various statistical methods will be used to analyze the data. Descriptive statistics of percentages and frequencies will be used to describe research variables. The research hypothesis states that there is a significant connection between the job satisfaction of employees and organizational performance. It aims to make a significant contribution to the literature on HRM in Saudi Arabia. However, lack of time and the small sample could be a limitation. Therefore, further studies might be needed on other companies or other industries in Saudi Arabia.
