Organizational Culture: A Predictor of Faculty Members’ Job Satisfaction


This paper aimed to investigate the relation between organizational culture and job satisfaction of faculty members. Accordingly, 358 individuals were selected among whole faculty members of Islamic Azad University of Fars province as sample using cluster sampling. The instruments of measuring in this research were organizational culture assessment questionnaire of Cameron and Quinn (2006) and job satisfaction questionnaire which was applied after determining its validity and reliability. The findings showed that among four types of organizational culture, hierarchical organizational culture was not related to job satisfaction significantly and three types of adhocracy, clan and market organizational culture were related to job satisfaction positively. The correlation between adhocracy organizational culture and job satisfaction of faculty members was stronger. Simultaneous regression analysis indicated that two types of adhocracy and market organizational culture could predict job satisfaction. These two cultures together explained 29.6% of criterion variable variance. Adhocracy organizational culture showed a greater share.
