job satisfaction

a fit between what employees seek from work and their actual experience. Studies of job satisfaction have made a general distinction between intrinsic and extrinsic sources of satisfaction. There has been debate about whether job expectations derive from psychological needs or from socially generated and, therefore, variable expectations. Approaches differ in terms of whether or not orientations are single-stranded (e.g. economic) or more complex and multi-stranded, and whether or not factors inside or outside the workplace are more important for satisfaction. The stance which theories take affects both their explanation of, and remedies for, job dissatisfaction – see Brown (1991). see also ORIENTATIONS TO WORK.
