The purpose of this study is to explore factors affecting job satisfaction among South Korean public servants and to provide relevant policy implication for human resource management. Using the structural equation model (SEM), the authors analysed those factors that affect employee job satisfaction. The exogenous variables including recognition, leadership, teamwork, job grade (ranking), and pay significantly affect employee satisfaction. By identifying which factors affect job satisfaction positively or negatively, it can help to address the barriers to performance and the improvement of organisational culture that would lead to a high-performing organisation.
