Methods of Measuring Job Satisfaction


Methods of Measuring Job Satisfaction

There are two Methods of measuring job satisfaction.

Single Global Rating:

Single global rating is nothing more than a response to one question.
Example: all things considered, how satisfied are you with your job? Here respondents circle a number between 1 and 5 that corresponds to answer from “highly satisfied” to “highly dissatisfied.”

Summation:

It is more sophisticated, it identifies key elements in a job and asks the employee’s feelings about each. Typically elements here are the nature of the work; supervision, preset pay, promotion opportunities and relation with coworkers. Respondents rate them on a standardized scale, and researchers add the ratings to create an overall job satisfaction score. This method is achieves a more accurate evaluation of job satisfaction.

In some cases there is a third method:

Personal Interview:

When the situation gets too complicated to handle by above mentioned methods then employees are interviewed personally to find out the core reason of the job dissatisfaction.
