Book Description:
In Job Satisfaction: Influencing Factors, Gender Differences and Improvement Strategies, the authors examine the way engagement in a work setting that promotes shared decision-making and a participative management style also encourages improved morale and job satisfaction among allied healthcare professionals. Additionally, integration of mindfulness practice in the work setting has been shown to lead to an improvement in emotional regulation and job satisfaction. Next, the authors present a study involving lecturers in polytechnic institutions who have been incorporating technology in their teaching methods for five or more years in Penang, Kedah, and Perlis, Malaysia. A separate study is discussed which aimed to identify influencing factors related to job satisfaction among academic librarians such as: “gender, emotional empathy, moral judgment, interpersonal relations, job demand, job environment, job enrichment, job involvement, job schedule, job quality, compensation, promotion, isolation in the workplace, group cohesion, perceived leadership behavior, as well as other factors that interact with individual personality in influencing job satisfaction.” Following this, findings from a study on leadership in higher education are discussed, with data drawn from a large national sample, in order to examine job satisfaction and role strain among academic administrators. The authors also present a study aimed to address a gap in the literature on studies on employee engagement in the country’s public sector, revealing the types of engaged employees and the factors that influence their engagement within the sector. Later, role of family-work interface dimensions, organisational support, and life satisfaction are examined as possible determinants of job satisfaction, in relation to gender. Strategies to improve job satisfaction are presented. A further study is presented on the effect of gender differences in job satisfaction and differences amongst group of Northern Malaysian teachers. The authors offer an outline that may be used to improve job satisfaction in the future. Afterwards, the gender amongst prison staff and its effect on overall job satisfaction is examined based on data collected in three different prisons in the state of Indiana, USA. In the final chapter, eight policy suggestions for improving part-time faculty job satisfaction are presented. (Nova)
