Abstract: The main aim of this study is to identify the dimensions of employee job satisfaction and loyalty and to classify employees based on these two factors using the concepts and approaches of customer satisfaction and loyalty. For this purpose, a mixed research method has been conducted by which, the senior managers of Isfahan Province Gas Company have been interviewed and a thematic analysis has been performed. A questionnaire has been developed and used for data collection. Quantitative analysis has been done and research hypotheses have been tested using SPSS 21 software. Findings imply that the gap between expectations and perceptions regarding job satisfaction dimensions is significant and the level of job satisfaction is lower than the average. Moreover, given the high level of employee loyalty, it is determined that most of the employees are classified in the hostage category.
