Teacher is the central element in educational system holding various important responsibilities. The overall performance of educational institution depends upon their teachers and ultimately their level of job satisfaction and work motivation. Thus understanding their behaviors and additudes needs more attention in organizations. The main objective of this paper is to study the level of job satisfaction and work motivation among the teachers of Higher Education Institutions of Madhya Pradesh. The hypothesis of the study is the istitutions has high degree of job satisfaction and work motivation and variation would not exist among the different group of teachers. Questionnaire having 18 factors to assess job satisfaction and work motivation and the score has been obtained on a 5 point scale. In order to make the interpretation easier the mean score was converted in percentage score.The result indicates that 9 items is good, 7 items is average and 2 items is poor score. Conclusively the score of job satisfaction and work motivation among teachers of higher education institutions is average/ unsatisfactory (58.17 %). Results show that the most important regions for low level of job satisfaction are because of poor or average responses of the teachers against certain factors. The factors which need special attention include chances to learn, working condition, performance appraisal, chances to use ability, promotion, fairness, fringe benefits, personnei relations, administrative decision etc.With regard to the satisfaction analysis and variation in the perception the finding reveals that there is an inverse correlation in certain factors among different cadres of teachers. Therefore, the hypothesis stands rejected.
