An exploratory study of job satisfaction in assisted care facility

by Sherrod, Cynthia K., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2015, 198 pages; 3728639


Job satisfaction is a factor of an organization’s cultural environment, communications, individual culture and human needs. This study analyzes these constructs in the context of corporate and private owned organizational environments. The context helps capture the significant differences that exist in the two forms of organization’s cultural environment. The study uses a qualitative comparison case-study design by collecting data through face-to-face interviews. This data is analyzed to better understand how an individual perceives job satisfaction and to further reveal themes and patterns for further study within an organization. These themes and patterns are then compared to Bronfenbrenner’s ecology theory of human development and how it relates to an individual perspective of job satisfaction within an organizational environment. This study adds to the body of knowledge and provides information that is helpful with the development of options that will enhance perspective of job satisfaction among the employees, thus allowing the attainment of any organization’s goals, regardless of industry.
