Summary

Job satisfaction is highly researched in industrial and organizational psychology, and the Job Descriptive Index (JDI) is often used to measure job satisfaction. The JDI has been shown to have significant convergent and discriminant validities, good internal consistency and stability, and has been related to various personal and job factors. While most studies using the JDI have used an English version, the literature suggests that a reasonable translation of the JDI is possible. Little attention has been given, however, to the study of the relationship between job satisfaction and background and job-related variables in different cultures. This study investigated the feasibility of using a translated version of the JDI to measure job satisfaction for Korean workers and examined how job satisfaction is related to other worker measures. Korean workers (N=417) completed a Korean version of the revised JDI and responded to a questionnaire measuring 11 demographic and 2 job-related variables. The revised JDI scales appeared to generalize, in reliability and factor structure, to the Korean sample. Job satisfaction was found to be related to workers' statements concerning their intentions to stay on the job but was not related to self-rated performance. Significant correlations were found between job satisfaction and a variety of background variables and these were consistent with findings for American workers. (NB)
