The study attempts to examine the problems of the employer/employee relationship, including the issues of feedback regarding employee performance, employee incentives, and the workplace environment. To do so, this study adopted a survey sampling method carried out at Saudi Electricity Company, KSA. 118 employees which were randomly selected from total staff of 31,000 employees. The findings revealed that there is a relationship between job satisfaction and employee performance, and specifically, that both an appreciation for work content and work conditions help to increase employee satisfaction and performance.
