ABSTRACT

This study investigated links between job satisfaction and performance at a South African College. Quantitative research was undertaken and a questionnaire used to ultimately determine levels of morale and job satisfaction, which impact on performance. The objective of the study was to assess the factors that contributed to low morale levels. Findings proved that job satisfaction levels at the institution are dismal and levels of morale extremely low, resulting in unmotivated staff and poor performance. Possible remedies include aspects such as transformation, diversity and transparency, communication, and improving job satisfaction, to bring about a feeling of belonging and appreciation.
