This paper discussed the internal job satisfaction and organizational commitment of employees in higher education institutions offering business education courses in the province of Nueva Ecija in the Philippines.

The respondents of the study were 150 employees of selected five (5) Higher Education Institutions. The study adopted the descriptive-correlational research design with a validated researcher-made instrument as the main tool for gathering the data. This research utilized the Weighted Mean (WM) derived from the Likert scale and applied the Pearson Correlation Coefficient to determine the relationship between variables, as well as Spearman's correlation.

Significant findings and conclusions showed that: (1) as for the respondents' levels of internal job satisfaction, they are very satisfied with their career advancement and working environment but satisfied only with the reward and promotion system and their role alignment; (2) if they feel like they are a part of the organization's family, the respondents are very committed to it in terms of their organizational commitment. However, among their affective commitments, their attachment to the organization comes in last; and (3) the level of organizational commitment of employees has a significant impact on their job satisfaction implying that employees with a higher level of internal job satisfaction are more committed to their respective institutions.

The adoption of an organizational policy chart in line with the study's findings is one of the study's recommendations. Specifically, the (1) formation of a committee to create an operations manual outlining policies, practices, and systems for the development of human resources; (2) identification of specific HR interventions to address potential issues/risks with the creation and implementation of such; and (3) development of a mechanism to ensure the manual's implementation.
