What accounts for job satisfaction differences across countries?

Bozionelos, N. and Kostopoulos, K.C. (2010) 'What accounts for job satisfaction differences across countries?', Academy of management perspectives., 24 (1). pp. 82-84.


The authors focuses on research by Florian Pichler and Claire Wallace into whether individual and workforce factors are responsible for differences in job satisfaction across European Union countries or whether institutional factors were also at work. The main factors affecting job satisfaction were occupational class and type of employment contract so that people in professional and managerial jobs were more satisfied than employees performing manual work. Institutional factors, such as average wages, helped explain the impact of individual and workforce composition differences across countries.
