The current study examined the effect of physical environment factors on job satisfaction of social workers in schools in Egypt. The study aimed to find out the effect of work tools and the physical aspects of the social workers’ work room in schools on their job satisfaction.
The study followed the pattern of descriptive/analytical studies, and was guided by the social survey method. Data were collected from a non-random sample of (72) social workers who work in all preparatory schools in Ain Shams Educational Administration, Cairo Governorate, Egypt.
A questionnaire was designed for the purpose of collecting data from this sample, which was distributed and collected by hand from the study sample in their workplaces (schools). The data was processed by the statistical package for social sciences ( SPSS ) version 24.
A set of results were reached, the most important of which were : the lack of work tools and the physical work environment in the work room of social workers negatively affects their job satisfaction. Among the recommendations of the study was the importance of providing appropriate work tools and improving the physical work room for school social workers and working to increase wages, salaries and financial rewards for them, which contributes to improve their degree of job satisfaction.
