Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.87092
Abstract: Academic literature on business management indicates employee job satisfaction as a key workplace factor. Increased productivity is often construed as a dividend accruing from job satisfaction. Therefore, organizations strive hard through organizational policies and processes to ensure employees are satisfied with their jobs. Work volition is generally understood as the degree of freedom organizationally available to choose a job profile. This paper explores the role of work volition in job satisfaction. It is assumed that chosen work roles catalyze the process of job satisfaction. The paper factors in internal and external job satisfaction as contributors to overall job satisfaction. The results from this work reported a significant impact of work volition on both internal and external satisfaction.

Abstract: Job satisfaction is said to be an important factor of work productivity along with having the proper training, interests and motivation. Frustrations at work may derive from different aspects of the job itself, the work environment as well as personal motivation for work and its results. Human resources management theories focus on job satisfaction and motivations as means for achieving the institution's objectives, and consequently see motivations and satisfaction at an individual level. Our paper investigated these issues at macro level, going beyond the individual variables of job satisfaction to the ones that explain the attitudes towards work at national level. This approach is derived from cultural theories analyzing attitudes towards work as a cultural value that varies across nations. In this manner we analyze data at national level, investigating the factors that influence work satisfaction and attitudes towards work of Romanians. Our aim is to explain the identified differences regarding the individual's attitude towards their professional life. Considering the fact that work occupies a lot of time in people's life and it is considered the second most important aspect of life after family, we questioned the aspects that explain the levels of job satisfaction both in the light of theoretical constructs and as results on the Romanian population. These indexes have a direct impact on the quality of life, reflect the level of development, as well as point to further social aspirations of individual actors. The current analysis reflects on different aspects of the appreciation of work and investigates variations of work satisfaction: Which is the value attributed to work? How important is work and how satisfied are individuals with their jobs? Which are the characteristics that determine variations of job satisfaction? After a theoretical synthesis of different approaches of work related attitudes in the literature, the second section presents the data and the main research findings. For data analysis we used the data obtained in the European Values Survey 2008, research conducted by the Romanian group for the study of social values, supported by the Quality of Life Research Institute. Other data used in this paper derived from a research program developed at University of Oradea - Social Sciences Faculty - HURO 0801/180 ENRI. The research section of this paper follows the theoretical questions: first we focus on the value attributed to work by Romanians and its contribution to self definition, then reflect on the significations of work, and finall
A theoretical framework for a complex model of job satisfaction – A theoretical meta-analysis
Marc R. H. Roedenbeck
Journal für Psychologie , 2008,
Abstract: The main criticism against all existing methods for measuring and theoretical models for describing job satisfaction is the missing subjectivism, the complexity of the individual, as well as of the situation. Thus, the development of a new complex model of job satisfaction (CMJS/KMA) is introduced which is focused on this criticism. All of the important results of the research about job satisfaction have been integrated. The degree of satisfaction, the quality of satisfaction, and the individual preferences in regard to the situation are integrated. Based on this, the general action as well as the action in regard to specific situational aspects can be described. Lawler (1968), Smith & Hulin (1969), Neuberger (1976), and Bruggemann, Gro kurth & Ulich (1975) have been recognized, as well as the leading works of Gebert (1979), Borg (1986; 1988), Büssing (1991), Judge, Locke & Durham (1997), and Jiménez (2000).

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine literature discussing job demands in nursing profession and its associated factors among nurses, and to provide direction as to where research needs to continue to explore and develop evidence in this area. Results: Results showed that job demands are the most influential stressor in nursing profession that associated strongly with many negative consequences on the profession in general and on the nurses on particular. Conclusion: The results supported that job demand is unavoidable stressor that leads to many negative consequences and connects directly to job dissatisfaction.

Abstract: Employees are considered to be the soft assets and hidden value of a company. Employees are the stimulus energy in every successful organization and therefore organizations are concerned about developing their human resources to achieve competitive advantage in the market. The productivity of an employee is not only affected by their capabilities but the environment in which they worked. High job performance is not possible unless and until employees get a better quality of work life and hence the quality of work life is indispensable in all enterprises. Taking this into cognizance, the present study has been conducted to examine the differences in the satisfaction levels of employees towards the quality of work life in Cairo Amman Bank across demographic variables. The study also investigates the impact of quality of work life on job satisfaction of employees. Data has been collected through questionnaires designed on a five-point Likert scale. Independent sample t-test, One-Way ANOVA, and multiple linear regression are the statistical tools that have been used for analysis of data. The findings highlighted that there is significant positive impact of quality of work life on satisfaction levels of employees. Notwithstanding, it has been revealed that there are significant differences in the satisfaction levels of employees towards the quality of work life across gender, education, and cadre but no significant difference has been found across age, and length of service.
