Abstract: The study analyzed the relationships of approaches to happiness and job satisfaction to job performance. This research endeavors to educate and inspire public academic institutions to focus on the happiness and job satisfaction of its teaching staff and see if it will bring out high job performance rate. A sample of two hundred and eighty-three (283) public secondary school teachers was taken from selected schools in the division of Cavite calculated based on Cochran’s formula and using simple random sampling technique. The researchers used descriptive statistics such as frequency distribution and weighted mean to present the data. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient r and multiple linear regression (MLR) model were used to determine the association and test statistical significance between all studied parameters. Data analysis was done using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). The findings of this study indicated that the extent of correlation between the approaches to happiness and job performance and between the job satisfaction and job performance are both significant. When these variables are linked with job performance, the outcome revealed that higher degrees of happiness—in terms of pleasant life, good life, and meaningful life—and job satisfaction lead to very satisfactory job performance.
