Abstract

Job satisfaction is significant to the development of organisations and well-being of workers. This concept is important for retaining workers, improving productivity, enhancing employee loyalty and increasing profit. Given that no meta-analysis has been conducted to compare job satisfaction amongst different occupations, this study analyses the level of job satisfaction amongst different occupations through a meta-analysis. The occupation with the highest value of odds ratio (OR) with job satisfaction is drivers, followed by office workers, disciplined services, nurses and physicians. By contrast, the occupation with the lowest OR is teachers. Job satisfaction is positively associated with a high tendency of suffering from occupational fatality. In addition, job satisfaction is related with turnover, productivity and revenue of organisations. However, the high occurrence of occupational fatality might affect the attitude of organisations on whether they should boost workers’ job satisfaction.
