A Structural Analysis of the Determinants of Job Satisfactions in On-Going Organizations.
Vaughn, William J.; Dunn, J. D.
Organizational effectiveness is composed of two concepts: (1) job satisfactions and (2) employee performance. In this paper the concept of job satisfactions is delimited to include five principal areas, viz., work, pay, promotion, people, and supervision. Employee performance is the reciprocal concept. This paper is directed toward the job satisfactions area. This paper explores one facet of the more comprehensive study of Interuniversity Council (IUC) libraries. Its purpose is to compare and contrast two major divisions of the largest of the IUC consortium libraries. The goal is to study the laws relating situations, personal characteristics, and policies to satisfactions and to behavior. The library studied is divided into its two functional halves: (1) Public Services Division and (2) Technical Services Division. It was found that Public Services employees in this library are happier than their counterparts in Technical Services. Each of the five principal areas of job satisfactions are explored for each division of the library. (Related studies are: LI003816 through 003819 and LI003821.) (Author/NH)
