This study ventured on discovering the association between job satisfaction and job performance among academic staff members at Oman College of Health Sciences. Respondents were generally satisfied when it comes to the work environment, relation and cooperation, training and development, adequacy of resources, and job security. Respondents were unsure if they were satisfied or dissatisfied with job autonomy, corporate culture and environment, remuneration and reward, and amenities. Respondents demonstrated strong task and contextual performance. Respondents demonstrated a low level of unproductive work behavior. There was no significant difference in work satisfaction among faculty members based on gender, civil status, rank, educational achievement, or length of service. When faculty members were divided into groups based on college branch and country, there was a considerable variation in work satisfaction. There was no statistically significant link between academic staff members' work happiness and job performance. The findings of this study might be used by college officials as a foundation for policy-making and program planning for basic education schools, increasing teachers' work performance and job happiness, as well as administrators' professional progress toward better education. This will serve as the foundation for establishing teacher development programs that will lead to teacher professional growth. It will also aid them in identifying particular demographic traits of instructors that may impact work performance and job satisfaction.
