Dedi Susanto, Ade Irma Anggraeni, Dian Purnomo Jati


This study aims to investigate the impact of extrinsic and intrinsic rewards on job satisfaction¹ and how it affects employee intention to stay². It also aims to determine the role of job satisfaction as a mediator between extrinsic and intrinsic rewards and employee intention to stay³. A quantitative methodology was employed to analyse the relationship between these variables, using a questionnaire with a Likert scale ranging from one to five. The sample comprises 90 employees from Candimas petrol station. The findings indicate that both extrinsic and intrinsic rewards can affect job satisfaction, ultimately leading to a higher employees’ intention to stay. Additional outcomes will be explored in this article.

Keywords: Intention To Stay, Extrinsic Reward, Intrinsic Rewards, Job Satisfaction.
