SUMMARY:Despite the popularity of Information Technology and job satisfaction research, little empirical evidence (to the researcher's knowledge) exists of the relationship between IT adoption and job satisfaction within the Jordanian construction industry. This research attempts to fill these knowledge gaps by exploring the relationship between IT adoption and job satisfaction from the perspective of Jordanian contracting firms. Measures were developed using MSQ and IT Barometer surveys. 50 questionnaires were distributed to investigate this relationship among different contracting companies in Jordan. Descriptive statistics were obtained and hypotheses were tested using multiple regression analysis. Results point out that more investment in technology would rather increase employee job satisfaction regarding intrinsic and general perspectives.

KEYWORDS: Construction industry, contracting companies, IT adoption, job satisfaction, Jordan
