Saudi Arabia faces staffing shortages and turnover among vital allied health technicians in pharmacy, laboratory, and radiology roles. This literature review synthesizes research on job satisfaction among these groups to inform sustainable workforce strategies. Findings show moderately high baseline satisfaction currently. Key drivers involve positive coworker relationships, professional autonomy, sense of achievement, and clear expectations from supervisors. However, heavy workloads, limited advancement opportunities, inconsistent roles, and work-life imbalance decrease satisfaction. A multidimensional approach is proposed combining tailored organizational initiatives like career development, balanced workloads, team building, empowerment, feedback systems, and work-life policies, alongside coordinated national policies addressing training capacity, incentives, standardization, compensation, recruitment, and ongoing skills development. Thoughtful change management can translate recommendations into measurable improvements. Further research should explore regional variations, gender differences, intervention impacts, career stage risks, cost-benefits, intrinsic motivations, and organizational culture. Fostering fulfillment and retention of these vital technicians through supportive practice environments and policies can strengthen healthcare service capacity in Saudi Arabia
