This study employed a quantitative, analytical, non-experimental cross-sectional research design. The Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire-Short Form (MSQ-SF), a questionnaire that contains 20 items that measure job satisfaction of workers from various fields, was disseminated to gather data. The respondents of this study consists of millennial allied healthcare workers from De La Salle University Medical Center employed within August 2018 - June 2019. These health workers are from the Nursing Service Office, Medical Laboratories, Radiology, Rehabilitation Medicine, and Pharmacy Departments. The data gathered were analyzed in two phases. Phase 1 employed descriptive statistics, wherein the frequencies of the demographic profile of participants were tallied. Phase 2 then commenced, where inferential statistics was applied. Pearson's Chi Square was run to measure the relationship between motivational factors and the job satisfaction of millennial healthcare workers. Multiple Linear Regression analysis was employed, followed by Backward Elimination Method. These analysis techniques were used to determine which among the individual intrinsic and extrinsic factors are able to predict job satisfaction. Based on the findings of the study, a discussion on the interpretation and implications of the results were done and reported accordingly. Based of the results of the current study, there is no relationship between the motivational factors and the job satisfaction of millennial health workers of DLSUMC employed within August 2018 - June 2019. However, intrinsic factors were found to predict job satisfaction more than extrinsic factors. It can be said that millennial health workers were more engaged in their work when they are able to employ their own creative and innovative methods to accomplish the routine and procedural tasks of hospital work. Additionally, they are more satisfied in a work environment that encourages teamwork between co-workers, and mentor-ship between superiors and subordinates. This goes hand-in-hand with related literature that depicts millennials are workers who are more stimulated by a dynamic work environment that puts forward an amiable relationship among its workers. Millennial do not particularly give importance to compensation, as this factor least predicts their job satisfaction.
