Performance Management, Job Satisfaction, Employee Promotion


The research focused on the attributes of performance management and their effects on promotion, job satisfaction, and performance in Pakistan's private Banking sector. Using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM) and a sample of 240 bank officers, the study found that performance management had a positive impact on the employee's promotion, satisfaction, and performance. Additionally, the results showed that rewards and appreciations should not be calculated based on workload or task quantity. The findings emphasize the need for private banking sectors in Pakistan to prioritize recognition and reward practices that focus on employees' performance.
