This paper aims at empirically investigating job satisfaction on job performance of the sailors in Rapid Action Boat Squadron in Sri Lanka Navy. Data were collected from 219 sailors using Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) and the structured questionnaire developed by Udayakumar (2003) was used for measuring job performance. Pearson Correlation Coefficient and Curve Fit Analysis were employed for the analysis of data. The study substantiated that there is a fairly positive relationship between job satisfaction and job performance of the sailors. The results suggest that the satisfaction aspect on its own does necessarily lead to improved individual performance and assumedly organizational effectiveness. Therefore, it needs to implement satisfaction-performance model effectively through specific practices. The paper empirically investigated satisfaction-performance model in Rapid Action Boat Squadron of Sri Lanka Navy context and offers practical implications for top level administration of the Squadron seeking effective implementation of the satisfaction-performance model.
