The purpose of this paper is to clarify, with the objective of facilitating improvements in the organization’s personnel management, whether the core employees in an incorporated agricultural organization derive satisfaction or dissatisfaction from their jobs. Toward this purpose, I conducted a job satisfaction analysis of core employees working on an agricultural land in Kyushu. The results of the analysis are as follows. About half of the core employees appeared to be satisfied. The items that got a high satisfaction rating were “working in close touch with nature,” “interest in agricultural work,” “cooperation of employer and fellow employees,” “family atmosphere at work,” and “communication with executives.” On the other hand, the main items that resulted in a high correlation coefficient with job satisfaction and moreover, a low satisfaction rating, were “our salaries are lower than those given by the other companies in the region,” “the safety and comfort measures at work should be improved,” “the public welfare being carried out is inadequate,” and “the work instructions are not detailed enough.” Improvement of hygiene factors was also found to be a high-priority item.
