Sample has been taken from the 16 universities of twin cities of Pakistan i.e., Islamabad and Rawalpindi. Sample size taken for this research is 310. By using regression analysis, findings of the study showed that salary, training and motivation have a positive relationship with job performance but salary has a stronger relationship with job performance than training and motivation.
