Increasing Job Satisfaction

  1. Job satisfaction is defined as a pleasurable or positive emotional state resulting from the appraisal of one’s job or job experiences. It can also be defined as the extent to which a staff member has favourable or positive feelings about work or the work environment.
  2. Job satisfaction comprises various facets including pay, promotions, co-workers, supervision, the work itself, recognition, working conditions, and company and management.
  3. Job satisfaction is increasingly becoming important in the workplace. Employers now recognise that the ‘happier’ their employees are, the better will be their attitudes towards the work, the higher their motivation and the better will be their performance.
  4. Job satisfaction in any field of work depends a lot on how conducive the work environment is. The work itself, the pay and the scope for promotion are only some of the factors which have an impact on job satisfaction.
