Pirzada Sami Ullah Sabri, Muhammad Ilyas, Zahra Amjad

Education standard in developing countries like Pakistan is considered to be very low than education standard in developed countries. Lack of existence of supportive organizational culture in education sector may be one of the important reasons of this. Supportive organizational culture may raise the level of job satisfaction of teachers and satisfied teachers may produce healthy, satisfied and creative minds. Present study aims to determine the effect of organizational culture on job satisfaction level of teachers of public and private sector higher education institutes and universities of Lahore which is second largest city of Pakistan and a hub of higher education. Data were collected from a sample of 347 teachers through structured questionnaire. Principal Component Analysis was employed to test the construct validity. Regression analysis was conducted to determine the effect of organizational culture on job satisfaction of teachers. Empirical findings show that organizational culture is categorized into two components i.e. organizational culture related to managers and leaders (OCM) and organizational culture related to employees (OCE). In this study effect of both kinds of culture on job satisfaction is positive and significant. However, we observe that effect of OCE on job satisfaction is higher than effect of OCM.
