JOB SATISFACTION 2 Abstract The authors of this paper define job satisfaction and explain the impact that organizational socialization and commitment has on it. In general terms, job satisfaction is the employee’s like or dislike for the job or job situation (Jex & Britt, 2008). Organizational socialization is a factor in the employee’s degree of satisfaction. For example, a positive socialization process in which people are polite and supportive, and the culture is one of fairness and reward and performance- oriented, may result in higher level of job satisfaction. Results reveal that organizational socialization and organizational commitment can be used to positively impact job satisfaction. Research indicates that there is a very strong correlation between organizational commitment and job satisfaction (Jex & Britt, 2008). This work also examines the factor of workplace stress, which also influences job satisfaction. All of this information combined can be used to explore and comprehend two key organizational elements: employee motivation and increasing productivity (Jex & Britt, 2008).
