Employee’s satisfaction is contingent upon various factors such as fair pay, promotions, career growth opportunities, reward, recognition and working conditions. This paper aims to find out those factors of employees’ motivation and job satisfaction that are more appropriately attracted in public sector universities’ teachers in Khyber Pakhtunhkwa, Pakistan. This study was conducted in three public sector universities situated in the north of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, Pakistan. Ninety university teachers were chosen as sample. Data were collected and analyzed by using Pearson’s correlation coefficient. It was concluded that within public sector universities, the most preferred factors for teachers’ motivation and job satisfaction are identified as recognition, work contents and promotions. The study concluded that certain factors such as teachers’ relationship with department head and salary are also moderately related to employee motivation and job satisfaction.
