Organizational Culture and Job Satisfaction Among University Professors in the Selected Central and Eastern European Countries


Organizational culture and job satisfaction are the most important factors for any university. Research into how satisfied professors are with university culture is crucial in finding ways to increase job satisfaction in the present as well as the future. The aim of our study is to investigate whether the type of organizational culture has any effect on job satisfaction and whether there are any differences between Serbia, Slovenia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The study was conducted on 489 professors at universities and colleges in Serbia, Slovenia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The study shows that university professors in the three investigated countries have a moderate level of job satisfaction. The case study method was used. The data collection technique applied was a survey conducted among university professors. The survey was conducted electronically, via Google Forms, and the key instrument was a questionnaire. The data were processed using SPSS Statistics 21. The results of the study show that improving perceived organizational support can increase the level of job satisfaction of university professors. It is also very important to emphasize the importance and originality of this study since similar studies have not been conducted before in the three countries mentioned.
