Cause and potential effects of a recent drop in federal worker’s job
Discuss the cause and potential effects of a recent drop in federal worker’s job satisfaction.
First, read the article “Survey: Federal worker’s job satisfaction drops”. You can either view the article on The Washington Post’s website: Survey – Federal workers’ job satisfaction dropsLinks to an external site. or download a PDF version of the article: Job Satisfaction Article
For your post, I would like you to touch on the following:
Which aspects of job satisfaction do the workers seem most dissatisfied with? Think of the nine common job satisfaction facets to identify the source(s) of low job satisfaction (Table 9.1 on page 217 in your book).
Explain what job satisfaction antecedents you think are responsible for the current low job satisfaction.
Explain the potential outcomes of the situation using what you know about job satisfaction outcomes. What is likely to occur if the sources of low job satisfaction are not addressed?
Feel free to bring in any other relevant comments or observations you made during your review of the article (e.g., workers’ level of organizational/occupational commitment, etc.).
