Abstract

The aim of this research examines what factors motivate the worker involved in the construction industry firms in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and their level of job satisfaction. Survey data was collected from 252 people in HCM City. The research model is proposed from the study of job satisfaction of some authors in abroad. The reliability and validity of the scale were tested by Cronbach’s Alpha, Average Variance Extracted (Pvc) and Composite Reliability (Pc). The analysis results of structural equation model (SEM) showed that the job satisfaction and some factors have a relationship with each other. The finding of this study provides valuable insights for the management of construction industry firms understanding the factors effecting job satisfaction.
