    Abstract

    Job satisfaction has long been an important and interesting area in organizational research. More recently, considerable attention has been focused on the concept of job satisfaction and factors that affect it. A major reason for the tremendous interest in this work attitude is that it has been consistently found to be related to important employee behaviors, such as turnover, absenteeism, and job performance. The objective of this study is to analyze the effect of human resource practices such as pay, promotion and training on job satisfaction. The sample of this study consisted of 150 employees of both private and public sector service organizations in the vicinity of twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. A questionnaire was used to gather data regarding above mentioned variables and demographic characteristics of the respondents. Data then analyzed with the help of SPSS using regression analysis and Independent Sample T Test. A positive and significant relationship was found between job satisfaction and factors like compensation, training and promotion. The study can be helpful for the employers to design their human resource strategies according to the changing socio-economic environment in the country.
