Today, target policies for employees are implemented by senior management in many sectors, especially in the banking sector. Managers set goals for their subordinates to achieve within a certain period of time and are expected to achieve these goals in order to achieve their goals. This target policy, which is implemented, creates a certain stress and pressure on the employees, and this situation takes place as target pressure in the literature. Target pressure has many positive and negative effects on employees. In this study, an application was made on bank employees serving in Van province in order to determine the effect of target pressure perception on job satisfaction. For this purpose, questionnaire forms were distributed to 180 bank personnel working in 33 bank branches, 3 of which are public and 9 of which belong to private banks, serving in the central districts of Van, Edremit, İpekyolu and Tusba, but 156 of them were retrieved. Invalid and incompletely filled questionnaires were eliminated from the 156 questionnaires that could be received, and 144 questionnaires, which were filled in completely and completely, were analysed. The obtained data were analyzed with the SPSS20 program and the data were subjected to descriptive analysis, explanatory and confirmatory factor analysis, T-test, Anova test, correlation analysis and regression analysis. According to the results of the correlation analysis, a negative correlation value (-0.508) was obtained between the goal pressure and job satisfaction, while the R2 value of the goal pressure factor was obtained as 0.258 in the regression analysis. It has been determined that 25.8% of the total variance (change) related to job satisfaction can be explained by the target pressure variable. In the full text file to be sent to the congress, all the results obtained in this research will be stated in all details, and the results obtained at the congress will be presented in a more comprehensive way.
