Abstract

This study aims to examine the influence of job satisfaction dimensions on job performance amongst the employees (Scheme B) of Sabah Ports after its privatization. A total of 172 employees participated in this study. The objectives of this study were partially achieved after examining the relationship between job satisfaction (independent variable) using the six dimensions which include job security, pay, working conditions (workload), working condition (relationship), supervision and working condition (environment) and job performance (dependent variable). Multiple regression analyses tested the relationships between several job satisfaction dimensions in the achievement of optimal performance. The dependent variable was factorized twice and generated it into two components; they are job performance (task) and job performance (appraisal). With respect to the relationship between job satisfaction and job performance (task), the regression analysis indicated that there is a 41.0% variance in job performance (task) and of the six dimensions of job satisfaction, the results shows job that security, pay, working condition (relationship) and supervision have a significant influence on job performance (task). However, working condition (workload) and working condition (environment) have no effects on job performance (task).In terms of the relationship between job satisfaction and job performance (appraisal), the multiple regression analysis results indicate that there is a 26.7% variance in job performance (appraisal) and job security, working condition (relationship) and working condition (environment) have a Significant influence on job performance (appraisal).
