Abstract: Knowledge and morale are the keys to quality education. A conceptual study was taken up to find out the factors influencing academicians to stay with their institutions. Researchers have brought out that the teachers’ motivation depends upon many factors such as salary, students’ feedback, promotion, job security, superior-subordinate relationship, peer group support, work environment and work-life balance. Institutions are contributing for the development and enhancement of manpower of the nation by producing skilled and intellectual human capital. From the review and study of fifty journals and articles, it is concluded that job satisfaction of academicians in higher educational institutions plays a major role. The details are given in the full paper.
