Schyns, B. and Croon, M.A. (2006) 'A model of task demands, social structure, and Leader-Member Exchange and their relationship to job satisfaction.', International journal of human resource management., 17 (4). pp. 602-615.

Abstract

In the present study, we examine task demands, leader-member exchange, and social structure in their relationship to job satisfaction. Based on the reflections of Seers and Graen in their dual attachment model, in the present study we combined task demands, leader-member exchange, and social structure in a model of antecedents of job satisfaction. The resulting model was tested using structural equation modelling. While task demands and leader-member exchange are related to their respective equivalents in job satisfaction, social structure is positively related to a latent factor job satisfaction, indicating that the social structure of a job has an impact on different facets of job satisfaction. The results are discussed with respect to sample characteristics.
