For operating an organization, several mechanisms play at hand. These mechanisms contribute to reaching the organization's end goal for itself and its constituents. This study aims to analyze the working environment, teamwork, and diversity of employees and its relationship to organizational satisfaction from a local higher education institution in Central Luzon, Philippines. The study used descriptive-correlational research with the survey as the primary instrument for data gathering. Eighty-five (85) respondents took part in the survey using a purposive sampling technique. Also, the researcher used an adapted and modified questionnaire to gather pertinent data for the study. This study used SPSS 20 to compute and analyze the gathered data with the following statistical tools: frequency, percentage, mean, t-test, ANOVA and Pearson-r. For the result, the study found that the respondents have a pleasant working environment, ideal teamwork, and diversity in the workplace. This is based on the agreement of the respondents on most of the statements in the survey. Also, the respondents are satisfied with the organization. There were significant differences found in the work environment, teamwork, and diversity when classified according to their demographic profile. Furthermore, there were also significant relationships between work environment, teamwork, diversity, and organizational satisfaction.
