Multi Media Presentation Slide 1 Hi, My name is Caitlyn Phillips and I am presenting the issue of Job Satisfaction. Slide 2 Albert Camus asserted in his book The Myth of Sisyphus , that “the struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart”, or in other words, one must enjoy the struggle. That’s not very realistic, is it? You can see it’s not in the 50-55% of United States workers who do not have job satisfaction. Job satisfaction is at an all-time low, and its leading to unproductive, poor quality work that is affecting the companies they work for. Slide 3 There are several factors that go into job satisfaction, which are outlined in the PERMA Theory: Positive emotions, Engaging tasks, strong Relationships with others, a sense of Meaning in their work, and Achievements or skills to take pride in. Another model used is the Self Determination Theory, and that contains three parts: “competence- experiencing control and mastery, relatedness- connecting with others, and autonomy- having choice and control”. To be “satisfied” with your job, there must be a good balance of all these components. . To find that over half of the United States workforce is unhappy with their work hints at a problem within the job system that must be common among many establishments. Clearly, one or more of the elements listed above are not being met for some reason, which is causing the dissatisfaction. Slide 4 As an overall theme, the workplace environment covers not only physical space, but also relationships and events, such as meetings. Efficiency has become the top priority of the office, and it shows. Procedia Economics and Finance conducted a survey on the impact of working environment on job satisfaction, and based their research on the idea that “to meet the standards of [an] organization, employees need a working environment that allows them to work freely without problems that may restrain them from performing up to the level of their full potential.” Slide 5

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
