In today's high paced and competitive environment, the performance of an organization is crucial for its survival. The key contributors of an organization's success are the employees and employee performance. One of the major roles managers play is increasing productivity of employees and so managers are increasingly asking themselves how they can stimulate their employees and thus improve their performance and contributions. Therefore, the main purpose of this work is to study job satisfaction of teachers from high schools in Canton Sarajevo, with regard to Herzberg's two-factor theory. More specifically, it will investigate the difference between motivator and hygiene factors of job satisfaction and the total level of satisfaction among high school teachers in Canton Sarajevo. The tool used for collecting data was an adapted version of the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) conducted on the sample of 150 high school teachers. Collected questionnaires were analysed by using the statistical program: Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS), particularly descriptive statistics and a range of inferential statistical techniques. The findings showed that nearly 84% of the variance in job satisfaction is significantly explained by hygiene and motivator factors. Furthermore, the study discovered that beside Salary, Status, Work conditions, Interpersonal relationship with subordinates and Possibility for personal growth, other hygiene and motivator factors do not significantly predict job satisfaction of participants. However, when individually considered, all hygiene and motivator factors significantly correlate with job satisfaction.
