Besides the average satisfaction scores of the managers involved in the survey, the factors of human resources management and satisfaction scores related to professional activities were evaluated. Human resource management has five factors: "organization and labor relations," "motivation and constitution of proper job environment," "career planning," "achievement valuation" and "wages."
