The results showed that there is a positive significant relationship between job satisfaction and reward. Nevertheless, other factors were found to be not significant in predicting job performance among academics.
Discussions elaborated on the importance of reward in understanding job satisfaction among lecturers. Finally, practical and theoretical implications, limitations of the study and recommendations for future research were also presente
