Job dissatisfaction among bank employees may adversely influence the financial performance of banks due to employee turnover, decreased productivity, poor service quality, decreased customer satisfaction, and negative employee attitudes in the workplace. The purpose of this correlational study was to examine how work on the present job, pay, opportunities for promotion, supervision, and coworker relationships predict job satisfaction among bank employees in Nigeria. The population of the study was 167 bank employees in 3 commercial banks in Nigeria. The 2-factor theory (TFT) served as the theoretical foundation in this study. Data collection was through a survey instrument called the job descriptive index. The results of the multiple linear regression analysis showed that the regression model significantly predicted job satisfaction, F (5, 95) = 10.806, p < .05, R2 = .363. Both supervision and coworker relationships were statistically significant predictors of job satisfaction among bank employees in Nigeria, while there were no statistically significant relationships between the predictorsâ??work on the present job, pay, and opportunities for promotion, and the dependent variable, job satisfaction. The implications of this study for positive social change include the potential to provide senior bank executives with an understanding of factors that relate to job satisfaction among bank employees, including creating a desirable work environment, improving the quality of supervision in the organization, increasing job satisfaction, and making the organization more desirable for employees.
