CHAPTER ONE
INTRODUCTION
1.1      Background to the Study
Employee satisfaction depends on the knowledge, skills, rules and regulations, and attitude enhancing the performance of employee and after satisfaction of employees its impact on customer satisfaction (Sabir, Akhtar, Aziz, Sarah & Zulfiqar, 2014). There is no doubt that employee satisfaction is critical in the service industry because of the nature of the industry (Lam, 2001). Customer will recognize and value the outstanding balance of service offered to them overtime, they will exhibit loyalty behaviors, such as continued to be purchasing and increased referral (Chi & Gursory, 2009). These loyalty behaviors will generate both market for share and profitability increases for the service firm (Heskett, 1997).
Satisfaction of employee is about knowing where you stand at present, and where you will be after some time, but customer satisfaction is about knowing what is the level of loyalty (Sabir, 2014). Employee satisfaction is about the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSA) through professional development and customer satisfaction is depend knowledge, skills, abilities of employees (Sabir, 2014). Satisfaction of employee is boosted through training, motivation, reward and customer satisfaction depends upon the quality service, product quality, contentment as well as admirable behavior of employee through professional development (Aziz & Lodhi, 2015). Satisfied employees are really important because they symbolize the organization to the public an optimistic link subsist among employee and customer satisfactions and circuitous relation between employee satisfaction and business success (Aziz & Lodhi, 2015).
Customer satisfaction is an emerging issue for the organizations today especially the firms that are operating beyond the boundaries (Rehman & Shahbaz, 2010). The satisfied customer is a permanent advertisement and good will of the company, so they are now putting  their efforts to satisfy the customer up to maximum level and in researching satisfaction, firms generally ask customers whether their product or service has met or exceeded expectations thus, expectations are a key factor behind satisfaction. When customers have high expectations and the reality falls short, they will be disappointed and will likely rate their experience as less than satisfying.
