The above statement is generally accurate as it is difficult to find a job that will fulfill all the attributes required for an individual to be fully satisfied with one’s vocation. Jobs, like life itself, are influenced by multiple factors and one can only make the best with what is available to him.
There are many factors that will influence my job satisfaction. For me personally, as a family man with commitments, compensation or pay is the most important factor. It just makes sense to go for a great paying job as there is food that needs to be put on the table and roof over my family’s head. Failure to adequately provide for the family will seriously affect me personally and subsequently will affect my job performance and satisfaction regardless of how great the situation is at the company.
Upon finding a job that compensates me well, the next important factor in my job satisfaction is job security. If I am uncertain of my future employability, I will certainly be demoralized. This will create anxiety and will negatively affect my job satisfaction.
Thirdly, what is important to my job satisfaction will be the overall corporate culture. An organisation that cares, values and respectful of its employees will create a positive working condition. A toxic labour relationship will, on the other hand, diminished any job satisfaction among the employees.
Number four on my list that will affect my job satisfaction is the working condition. If the working condition is poor, it will impair my job satisfaction as it will certainly cause stress and may affect my health in the long run.
Next will be my relation with my colleagues and my superiors. Successfully establishing good professional interactions and mutual respects with others will assuredly improve one’s job satisfaction. These allow work to be conducted in an effective and efficient manner when you can count on your colleagues’ cooperation and your superiors’ leadership.
