Abstract

Introduction: Job satisfaction plays a crucial role in the lives of teachers, as it affects both their personal well-being and the quality of their professional performance. Furthermore, the way teachers perceive their work, the work environment, and development opportunities could significantly impact their motivation, commitment, and effectiveness in the classroom.
Objective: To determine if job satisfaction is related to organizational commitment in a sample of Peruvian basic regular education teachers.
Methods: Quantitative, non-experimental, cross-sectional correlational study. The sample consisted of 164 teachers who were administered the Job Satisfaction Scale and the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire, instruments with adequate metric properties. Spearman's Rho correlation coefficient was used to evaluate correlations between variables and dimensions.
Results: Preliminarily, it was identified that teachers were characterized by presenting a high level of job satisfaction; however, the level of organizational commitment was regular. Additionally, it was found that the Spearman's Rho correlation coefficient between both variables was 0.467 (p <0.05).
Conclusions: Job satisfaction is directly and significantly related to organizational commitment in a sample of Peruvian basic regular education teachers. This finding highlights the importance of promoting a satisfactory work environment to foster teachers' commitment and dedication to their work and institution.
