Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the impact of cultural values and emotional intelligence levels of private sector employees in Northern Cyprus (KKTC) on job satisfaction. The study's population consists of private sector employees aged 18 to 65 in KKTC. A total of 306 individuals were included in the study using a randomized sampling method. A questionnaire consisting of five sections was used as the data collection tool. The Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) 26.0 software was used for data analysis. The study found negative and significant correlations between the participants' scores on the Power Distance sub-dimension of the Cultural Values Scale and their scores on the overall Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale, as well as the internal and external satisfaction sub-dimensions. Furthermore, positive and significant correlations were found between the participants' scores on the Uncertainty Avoidance, Collectivism, and Long-Term Orientation sub-dimensions of the Cultural Values Scale and their scores on the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale, indicating that higher scores on these cultural values were associated with higher job satisfaction. The study did not find any significant correlations between the participants' scores on the Masculinity sub-dimension of the Cultural Values Scale and their scores on the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale. Additionally, the study found positive correlations between the participants' scores on the Emotional Intelligence Scale, particularly on the sub-dimensions related to awareness of emotions, awareness of others' emotions, emotional use, and emotional regulation, and their scores on the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale. This suggests that higher emotional intelligence is associated with higher job satisfaction. In this context, emphasizing the importance of teaching and developing emotional intelligence competencies in organizations to enhance job satisfaction is crucial. It also suggests that evolving cultural values in a way that promotes job satisfaction is essential for both organizations and employees' productivity. However, it is important to note that the study has certain limitations, such as a relatively small sample size and the reliance on self-reported questionnaire responses. Further research with larger and more diverse samples may provide a more comprehensive understanding of the relationships between cultural values, emotional intelligence, and job satisfaction
