The data was analyzed using statistical package for social sciences (SPSS).Data presentation was in form of descriptive statistical such as means, standard deviations , frequency tables, pie charts and bar graphs. Inferential statistics was also included through the Pearson correlation coefficient between employee satisfaction and customers to detect linear relations.
