Are Public Officials Really Less Satisfied Than Private Employees A Comparative Study

Kshama Bhardwaj, Richa Bhardwaj

?Job Satisfaction is a pleasurable or positive emotional state resulting from the appraisal of one?s job or job experience?. Job satisfaction is a set of favorable or unfavorable feelings with which employees view their work. It is a worker's sense of achievement and success and is generally perceived to be directly linked to productivity as well as to personal wellbeing. The happier people are within their job, the more satisfied they are said to be. Employees Job Satisfaction can be indicative of work behaviors such as organizational citizenship, and withdrawal behaviors such as absenteeism, and turnover. Further, employees job satisfaction can partially mediate the relationship of personality variables and deviant work behaviors. Employees Job satisfaction is correlated with life satisfaction. This correlation means people who are satisfied with life tend to be satisfied with their job and people who are satisfied with their job tend to be satisfied with life. An important finding is that Employees job satisfaction has a rather tenuous correlation to productivity on the job. This is a vital piece of information to researchers and businesses, as the idea that satisfaction and job performance are directly related to one another is often cited in the media and in some non-academic management literature. Employee job satisfaction is a strong predictor of absenteeism, suggesting that increasing job satisfaction and organizational commitment are potentially good strategies for reducing absenteeism and turnover intentions. Recent research has also shown that intention to quit alone can have negative effects on performance, organizational deviance, and organizational citizenship behaviours. In short, the relationship of satisfaction to productivity is not as straightforward as often assumed and can be influenced by a number of different work-related constructs, and the notion that "a happy worker is a productive worker".
