Organizational Commitment and Job Satisfaction among State Agency Rehabilitation Counselors: South Carolina.
Satcher, Jamie; McGhee, Marcheta
The job satisfaction and organizational commitment of rehabilitation counselors working in the public rehabilitation agency in South Carolina are the focus of this study. Participants were 4 rehabilitation counselor survey respondents whose agencies agreed to take part in the study. A total of 12 surveys were mailed. Job satisfaction was measured using the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire. The three components of organizational commitment (affective, normative, and continuance) were examined using the Organizational Commitment Scales. Potential predictor variables examined were: (1) years of service; (2) age; (3) education level; (4) Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC) status; (5) conscientiousness; (6) initiative; (7) cooperation; and (8) attendance/punctuality. South Carolina's rehabilitation counselors showed patterns of job satisfaction and organizational commitment similar to rehabilitation counselors in the larger national sample. South Carolina's public rehabilitation agency is encouraged to develop ways of rewarding those counselor behaviors (conscientiousness, initiative, and cooperation) which are most predictive of job satisfaction, affective commitment, and normative commitment. Contains two appendices: (1) Job Satisfaction Items and (2) Organizational Commitment Items. (JBJ)
