The emergence of different organizational cultures inside companies has been found to impact their overall success. It is the setof beliefs, values, and customs present in a workplace that influences the behavior of its employees. Meanwhile, job satisfaction is the employees’ contentment level with respect to different aspects of their job. Hence, this study employed a descriptive-correlational research design to investigate organizational culture's influence on insurance agents' job satisfaction. To gather the essential data and meet the objectives of this study, the Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument and Job Satisfaction Survey were distributed to the respondents. The data gathered were then computed and analyzed using regression analysis, revealing that organizational culture significantly influences satisfaction among insurance agents. These results were analyzed and interpreted, with implications and recommendations provided for better understanding and application for the stakeholders of this study.
