Quantitative research methodology has been adopted to study the relationship among variables. A questionnaire was developed covering demographic variables vide simple questions whileJS, WLB, PRE, PJRS were covered vide different scales scored on 5 point likert scales. The questionnaire was administrated online.
The research has proved that non-financial variables have a significant positive correlation with job satisfaction. Alternate hypothesis have been accepted. This does not constitute that financial rewards do not play an important role in job satisfaction but rather give an idea about what kind of variables may be manipulated to increase job satisfaction without putting a dent in company's budget.
