Job Involvement, Satisfaction and Motivation: A Comparison of Predictors.
Huszczo, Gregory E.
Considerable research has examined the correlates of job involvement and its conceptual independence from the notions of satisfaction and motivation, with an indication of considerable overlap beween the three concepts as well as the possibility that job involvement may be more aligned with motivation than with satisfaction. A job attitude survey administered to 414 laborers, clerical workers, and professionals indicated that job involvement only differed more significantly from motivation than from satisfaction on its correlates with performance, and with dissatisfaction with autonomy needs. Satisfaction with the higher order needs of esteem and self realization explained significant variance in general job satisfaction. Motivation appeared to be a more important predictor of job involvement than satisfaction measures. (Author/JAC)
