The Predictors of Job Satisfaction

Posted by Jody Urquhart on Wed, May 28, 2014 @ 01:31 PM

best selling authorGiven the high price of employee turnover, the proactive way to retain employees is to understand what makes a job rewarding.

This week I was a motivational speaker for a group of HR managers. The other guest speaker outlined the things that will make or break job satisfaction.

This list was culled from the book, the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace by Gary Chapman and Paul White.

The main drivers of job satisfaction are:

Complexity of the work. The more complex and the less routine the work, the more satisfying.
General working conditions.
Appreciation and recognition.
Perception that the work is important.
Quality of interpersonal work relationships.
Coworker satisfaction.
Decision control.
Level of responsibility.
Workload. Too much work and overwhelmed employees will not be satisfied.
Financial Pay. Money will always buy some level of happiness

I appreciated the list the guest speaker for the hr conference shared, so I purchased the book. I'm sure I will be blogging about it again.
