Abstract:The objective of this bachelor thesis is to analyse with the help of an explorative investigation, how HRM can improve the job satisfaction of teachers. For this purpose the three main stakeholders of HRM at school, namely teachers, headmasters and, of course, HRM professionals self, were interrogated at two Dutch schools in the region of Twente. Semi-standardised interviews were conducted on the basis of open questions. Five variables, namely attraction of the teachers’ job, contribution of HRM concerning job satisfaction, the role of HRM at school, the functiemix and cooperation of the three parties to increase attraction of the teachers’ job, have been chosen in order to measure the degree of consensus among the three parties. The results show that there is, despite some differences and varying perceptions, plenty of consensus, starting with the intrinsic motivation of liking to work with children. Furthermore noteworthy in terms of a high job satisfaction are the possibility to develop, rewards of non-financial and financial nature, an effective communication,and steady companionship.
