A moderate positive relationship between job satisfaction and job performance was found. Job performance influences and causes job satisfaction; job satisfaction inlfuences and causes job performance. A cause/effect relationship exists and job satisfaction is the strongest effective variable. The results indicated that more effort should be put into improving job characterstics as the most important determinant of employees' satisfaction and performance. Emphasis on job design and redesign, including techniques of job enrichment should be adopted. The results of this study also indicated that supervisory style has a major impact on employees' satisfaction and performance style of supervision that they adopt for their subordinates. To create an organisational climate of satisfied employees, participative and considerate styles of supervision should be adopted. All in all, perhaps the common thread from the results of the study is to involve employees more in their own jobs by giving them an increased sense that warehousing jobs allow them more responsibility, achievements, ability utilisation, the feeling of doing things for other people and a higher degree of autonomy. It is, in fact, the management's responsibility to analyse the situation in warehousing and its particular needs, so that the management can choose the best possible course of action from the various alternatives.
