Abstract

Employees, one of the vital elements of any organization, determine the mechanism of achieving organizational goals and objectives effectively and efficiently. The level of job satisfaction among employees is very important for the growth of an organization. Job satisfaction is a set of favorable or unfavorable feelings and emotions with which employees view their work. The objective of this study is to examine the correlation between leave and job satisfaction among the married female workers of the ready-made garments industry in Bangladesh. Data were obtained from 520 married female workers from different garments organizations in Bangladesh by using a purposive sampling technique. A frequency distribution analysis was utilized to explore the related characteristics between leave, and job satisfaction, of the respondents. Following this, a zero order correlation analysis was employed to estimate the existing relationships among the variables. According to the correlation analysis, age, education, casual leave, sick leave and festival holidays have a strongly significant correlation with job satisfaction. So, in order to satisfy the workers, the owners of garments industry organizations should provide these types of leave, properly and sufficiently.
