Is there a Relationship between Employees Satisfaction and their Performance?: the Case of Teachers in Tanzania Government-Owned Schools

Salimu Abushiri Jinyevu


This paper examines the existing relationship between employees satisfaction and their job performance by analyzing the determinants of the two variables (Satisfaction & Performance); how they complement each other and what is the impact of this relation to an organization so as to widen the understanding of the phenomenon to both employers and employees in order to increase performance and achievements with reference to Tanzania’s education sector.

Considering teachers work in government-owned primary and secondary schools in Tanzania as a sample, this paper employs secondary data, interview, personal observation and experience in the Tanzanian education sector to examine the relationship between satisfaction and performance, influence and repercussions.

The findings  show  not only a positive correlation between job satisfaction dimensions and employees performance,  but also positive influence of job satisfaction on job performance thus satisfied employees are highly motivated, have higher job morale and perform better than those who are dissatisfied.

Key words: Relationship, employees, job satisfaction, job performance, teachers, government-owned schools.
