This study is all about the major aspects of job satisfaction. Every human being has some basic needs in his life that he has to fulfill. If a job is unable to make him fulfill those needs, he or she won’t be able to keep that job which will be non-satisfaction from the job. On the other hand, if a person gets the desired environment in a work place and also the job fulfills all his basic needs, the employee will show more retention, more dedication and more commitment while working in that organization.
