M8D2: Project 2 Presentation
For my second project this semester, I researched the subject of job satisfaction, with a goal of finding causes of job dissatisfaction, and what if any impact work environment has on
job satisfaction. I learned that this research is important, because as I learned in this course, “a job provides the material necessities of life, but is also contributes to worker’s self-esteem,
identity, and sense of order, which are important for meaning and satisfaction in life”(Hodson & Sullivan, pg. 57). I also learned that a man’s job directly relates to his sense of
identity, and self-esteem, so it stands to reason that man must find satisfaction in the work he does.
My research topic, is also of importance, because I also learned, that “people can be either satisfied or dissatisfied with their work – they can find their work either highly engaging or utterly meaningless. People’s levels of job satisfaction are the result of their tasks, the characteristics of the organizations in which they work. “These various experiences result in different theories that emphasis either on alienation or self-actualization” (Hodson & Sullivan, pg. 58). Finally, the topic of job satisfaction is important, because, “the work environment can link the social relation at the workplace and also maintain the relationship between co-worker, supervisor and the organization” (Jain and Kaur, 2014).
Discussion question to the class. Does work environment affect job satisfaction?
