Abstract:
Employees' job satisfaction plays a very crucial role in obviating absenteeism among workers within an organization. One of the fundamental concerns of many managers today is on how to improve job satisfaction among employees to reduce, to a significant extent employees' absenteeism. The main purposes of this paper are 1) to analyze and clarify the effects of job satisfaction and absenteeism among employees of Technical College of Engineering in Sulaimanya and 2) to establish how workplace conditions such as regular payment of salaries, supervision, good working relationships and compensation, inter alia, can reduce absenteeism. The findings show that the main dissatisfactions among employees of Technical College were related to payment, working condition, relationship with co-workers, and compensation. This research is extremely significant because absenteeism causes a huge loss for both individuals and organizations. An understanding of the factors that affect absenteeism may provide important insight for managers who must deal with the consequences of employees' absenteeism. The study will also contribute to providing solutions, control, and a decrease in the level of absenteeism in the workplace thereby bringing about loyalty and commitment back to the workplace to create productive employees that will lead to a productive society.
