The book is based on a study conducted to examine the influence of perceived employee welfare programs on employee job satisfaction at Kenya Railways Corporation.
The study had a target population of 1,214, being all the employees of Kenya Railways, MGR Operations.
A sample size of 123 employees was established by use of a multistage stratified random sampling method.
The study used a descriptive cross-sectional survey design.
Primary data was obtained using a structured self-administered questionnaire.
Analysis of data used regression analysis.
The study determined a statistically significant connection between employee welfare programs and employee job satisfaction at Kenya Railways Corporation.
Employee health programs exhibited the highest influence on employee job satisfaction trailed by flexible work programs.
This study has contributed to the theory of job satisfaction and supplemented existing literature in employee welfare programs by establishing correlations between employee welfare programs tested in the study and employee job satisfaction.
