Abstract

Against a backdrop of continuing discussion on the challenges faced by the apparel industry in Sri Lanka, the human involvement is yet to be considered as a signifcant organizational element. Therefore this study empirically examined the impact of job satisfaction and employee education on employee effciency in the apparel industry with reference to the Gampaha district. The study was aimed to examine the problem “Is there an impact of job satisfaction and employee education on employee effciency?”This study was conducted from a randomly selected sample of 90 respondents from an Apparel organization by administrating a structured questionnaire, which consisted of 37 questions that featured a 6 point scale. The sample of the study only consisted of machine operators. For the purpose of analyzing both descriptive and dummy variables regression was used. Descriptive analysis was used to clarify the basic features of the sample. In order to examine the relationship employee effciency has with job satisfaction and employee education, an ANOVA model was constructed. The constructed ANOVA model for the study is as follows. EF = β0+ β1D1 + β2D2 +β3D3 + U The fndings of the research revealed that there was no positive relationship between employee effciency, job satisfaction and education and it was statistically confrmed by rejecting the two hypotheses. According to the study, the researcher observed that employee effciency neither relates to employee job satisfaction nor the level of education of employees since they work to achieve their day to day targets.
