Job satisfaction relates to an individual’s level of contentment within an assigned organization and is influenced by the individual’s likelihood of promotion, perceptions of the stability of the work environment and many other demographic relationships. NorthAmerica and the United Kingdom have produced evidence supporting this position for the last five decades. Accordingly, this study employed a descriptive correlational design to examine the factors that influence job satisfaction. A convenient sample of 40 respondents from varying urban companies were recruited to participate in the study. The data were analyzed using SPSS version 21 software. Non-Parametric Statistical tools such as Bivariate Correlations and One-way ANOVA tests were used to examine the relationship between demographic factors and job satisfaction as well as employee support systems and jobs satisfaction. A conceptual framework was developed based on the variables under examination. The results indicated that supervision, business format and advancement on the job criteria had strong positive relationships with employees’ level of job satisfaction. Authors concluded that employee support systems need to be enhanced to reduce attrition and to promote, strengthen and develop burgeoning and established companies
