Job Satisfaction

This organizational behavior student project covers job satisfaction in the workplace, including a look at productivity, customer service, absenteeism, and turnover.

Stan is a satisfied employee who enjoys his job; he is productive and efficient. When Stan becomes unsatisfied with his job, he is no longer productive. A student explains that job satisfaction and productivity are related. Using Stan as an example, the group shows how job satisfaction affects customer service, absenteeism, and turnover.

How does the individual difference theory affect job satisfaction? What other factors (such as culture and intelligence) affect job satisfaction?
