Abstract
This chapter explains the relationship between job satisfaction and organizational constructs in modern organizations; job satisfaction, job performance, and adaptability; job satisfaction and negative organizational issues; and the importance of job satisfaction in the health care industry. Job satisfaction is an attitude that employees have about their work and job-related activities. Job satisfaction is important from the perspective of maintaining employees within the organization. High job satisfaction effectively leads to the improved organizational productivity, decreased employee turnover, and reduced job stress in modern organizations. Job satisfaction leads to a positive ambience at the workplace and is essential to ensure the higher revenues for the organization. Organizations should create the systematic management and leadership strategies to increase the high levels of job satisfaction of their employees. When employees are satisfied with their jobs, they will energetically deliver the higher levels of job performance.
