Summary

Job satisfaction is the feeling an employee has about his pay, his work, his promotion opportunities, his coworkers, and his supervisor. The model for conducting job satisfaction research suggested in this study gives specific attention to: (1) how job satisfaction can be measured; (2) the major pitfalls likely to be encountered by those who conduct such research and (3) how job satisfaction data can be obtained, analyzed and interpreted by management. The universe of this study was comprised of six libraries of the Interuniversity Council (IUC). The Job Descriptive Index (JDI) was used to measure job satisfaction in the areas of pay, promotion, supervision, work, and people on the job. The ultimate goal of job satisfaction research is two-fold: (1) to increase the understanding of employees and their supervisors in regard to the reasons underlying current management policies and practices and (2) to increase long-term understanding of the meanings and implications for managerial policy and practice of basic research in the field of job satisfaction. (Related studies are: LI003817 through 003821). (Author/NH)
