Employee satisfaction is the product of many factors, some directly related to the work situation and some related to the individual’s personal qualities or characteristics. This week, we examine social cognitive theory and social identity theory as applied to the work environment and employee satisfaction.
For this Discussion, review the media transcript titled Virtual Office, and evaluate the job satisfaction rates of the people in the media. Then consider the social cognitive factors that might affect their job satisfaction.
With that in mind:
Post a brief description of the employees with high job satisfaction and employees with low job satisfaction. Explain the reasons for their satisfaction beyond the score. Then explain how non–work-related social cognitive factors might have influenced employee satisfaction for two of the employees. Finally, explain two areas in which a consultant might use social psychology to maintain or improve work satisfaction.
