Introduction: Experts consider the physical condition of the workplace and work pressure as important variables affecting job satisfaction. This study aims to investigate the relationship between workplace physical condition and work stress with job satisfaction.
Materials and Methods: This research is applied in terms of purpose, and according to the nature of the subject and its objectives, is descriptive-correlational. The statistical population of this survey is all employees of one of Assaluyeh Petrochemical Companies in 2020. The sample's size is 290 people who were selected by simple random sampling method. Job Descriptive Index (JDI has been used to measure the concept of job satisfaction and its components, Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) and the Job Characteristics Model (JCM) were also used. A researcher-made questionnaire was used to measure the variables of physical conditions of work environment and work pressure SPSS software was used to analyze the data and descriptive statistical methods such as one-dimensional tables, mean and inferential methods such as factor analysis, correlation coefficient, and regression were used.
Results: The average score of job satisfaction is 67.04, the physical work environment is 40.69, and work pressure is 60.17. The correlation between job satisfaction and physical conditions of the workplace and work stress, at a significance level of 0.01, is equivalent to 0.407 and -0.428, respectively. R = 0.496 and R2 = 0.246 were calculated. The regression coefficients are 0.298 and -0.321, respectively.
Conclusion: The results show that the job satisfaction score is above average, the physical condition of the workplace is below average, and the workload is above average. There is a direct relationship between job satisfaction and physical conditions of the work environment and an inverse relationship between job satisfaction and work pressure.
