To be fruitful and prosperous in a competitive market, it is significant that business managers recognize how their workforces feel at the job and what they require (Chan, 2019).

The technology changes development, globalization trend, and new business practices unceasingly impact an organization in Malaysia. Numerous corporations are going through a rigorous challenge in bettering worker job satisfaction in addition to job performance to make corporations successful. Generally, workforces will be more contented when they feel rewarded equally for their effort in the workplace. Therefore, those workers that are more devoted to the corporation seem to have greater productivity and have greater retention rates (Bahani, 2017). Employee satisfaction and performance management are two parts that pose challenges for workers. Putting into practice performance management approaches such as assessments to determine worker performance comes with its own difficulties, which are typically unexpected.
Merely after workers execute complex assessment programs, do they comprehend the problems connected to them. Job gratification is an additional subjective subject that concerns an employer’s work contentment, or absence thereof, can have an effect on performance reviews and have a risk on the employer-employee rapport by generating resistance between workers and their managers. On the other hand, managers can use analyses, worker feedback, and supervisor analysis to recognize what issues exist in both performance appraisals and job satisfaction. Many corporations motivate their workers to work efficiently by providing some developmental programs and pieces of training and giving several remunerations for satisfactory performance among staff members. Even though the businesses had given some developmental programs and incentives in order to persuade the workforce, job satisfaction problems still exist. The job performance and job satisfaction relationship have been the subject of considerable study in the area of organizational/ industrial psychology for decision-making insinuations. Despite the fact that many models of the correlation have been proposed, to date, research has not determined the suitable fundamental ideal to elucidate this relationship.
