Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine and gain a better understanding of the impact of human resource practices on foreign workers job satisfaction in Plastic Centre Sdn. Bhd. Ninety foreign workers consist of 52 Bangladeshi and 38 Nepalese workers participated in this study. Data was obtained using questionnaires and analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 16. Statistical analysis using regression analysis found the research model is marginally significant to explain the job satisfaction of these workers. Among the independent variable, only compensation were found to have an impact on foreign workers job satisfaction in Plastic Centre Sdn. Bhd. T-Test results also revealed that Nepalese workers and workers who possess only primary education, have higher job satisfaction working in Plastic Centre Sdn. Bhd. Based on these findings, recommendations and suggestions were made to the Board of Directors for Plastic Centre Sdn. Bhd. The scope of the study and future research opportunities in this area were also discussed.
