Keywords:Job satisfaction, job satisfaction factors, organizational commitment, travel agency, Serbia
The aim of this research is to examine the relationships between the factors of job satisfaction (pay, promotion, supervision, fringe benefits, contingent rewards, operating procedures, co-workers, nature of work and communication) identified by Spector and the organizational commitment in travel agencies in Serbia. The survey was conducted during March and April 2020, on a sample of 152 respondents, using a survey method and validated instruments: Job Satisfaction Survey and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire. Research findings indicate a significant positive relationship between job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Furthermore, the results indicate that pay, promotion, fringe benefits, co-workers and communication correlate significantly with employee commitment, while between the other factors of job satisfaction (supervision, contingent rewards, operating procedures, nature of work) and organizational commitment, there are moderately positive relationships. Implications, research limitations and suggestions for future research are presented.
