Abstract

Distilling the vast literature on this frequently studied variable in organizational behaviour research, Paul E Spector provides the student and professional with a pithy overview of the application, assessment, causes and consequences of job satisfaction. In addition to discussing the nature of and techniques for assessing job satisfaction, the author summarizes the findings concerning how people feel towards work, including: cultural and gender differences in job satisfaction and personal and organizational causes; and potential consequences of job satisfaction and dissatisfaction. Students and researchers will particularly appreciate the extensive list of references and the Job Satisfaction Survey included in the Appendix.
