It has been shown that employees who have a high satisfaction rate on the job or with the company that they work for, are less likely to leave the company that they work for compared to those who have a less satisfaction rate (Hellawell, 2012). As mentioned earlier, this would result not only in cost savings, but it would improve the overall relationship between the employee and the company. Employees that are committed and satisfied are not only not going to leave, they would also be able to contribute more and be more effective and efficient.
Organizations that are serious about making improvements are going to have to deal with the issue of job satisfaction. Job satisfaction can be best described as the positive feeling that an individual has about their job resulting from an evaluation of the job’s characteristics (Robbins & Judge, 2009, p.31). It would seem natural to think that job satisfaction would have a positive correlation with successful organizations. What impact does job satisfaction have on an organization? Research will show that there are not only internal effects from performance related issues, but also external effects that impact customer satisfaction.

Lastly, in a situation with a Board of Trustees, it is very naive to think you can carry change efforts while key management positions are absent. While it was a key component to change the organizational structure, this process needed to come before cultural changes. I have the desire to affect positive change with my Board role for Roscoe Village in the same way as my college role, but I need to be cognizant of my limitations to do that at least in the same manner. While Roscoe Village has appreciated and tapped my abilities in the past, I am not the Director and can’t assume to carry the same

The contextual influences that impact my career as a Guilford County Employee include state, local and federal laws that govern employment. As I read our text, the one that deepened my understanding of my salary was the exempt versus nonexempt compensation considerations. Educators in North Carolina meet the exemption criteria of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. I will not be paid overtime for any duties performed outside of the 40 hour work day. This includes parent teacher conferences, required meetings and training, the evaluation of students’ work related artifacts and instructional preparation. I am a salaried exempt employee who would fit into the “Learned Professional” category.

Job satisfaction is a pleasurable or positive emotional state resulting from the appraisal of one’s job or job experiences. It has been treated both as a general attitude and satisfaction with five specific dimensions of the job: pay, the work itself, promotion opportunities, supervision, and coworkers. Challenging work, valued rewards, opportunities for advancement, competent supervision, and supportive coworkers are dimensions of the job that can lead to satisfaction (Nelson & Quick, 2013, pg.
To understand the concept of job satisfaction the research has identified two aspects of it, they are, the facets satisfaction and overall satisfaction (Cherrington,1994; Fields, 2002). Individuals can be satisfied or dissatisfied with their overall job (Ironson, Smith, Brannick, Gibson, & Paul, 1989) and with specific job facets, such as the level of pay, promotion opportunities, co-workers, working conditions and supervision, contingent rewards, benefits, nature of work, or communication (Spector, 1997; Locke, 1976; Smith, Kendall & Hulin, 1969). The evidence shows that distinctive job facets such as pay satisfaction, opportunities for promotion, relationships with co-workers and supervisors have significant effects on job satisfaction (Ting, 1997; Ellickson & Logsdon, 2002; Pohlmann; 1999). The overall satisfaction is considered in terms of good salary, compassionate supervisors and co-operative co-workers. Conversely, the job dissatisfaction derives for instance form low pay or incompetent supervisors.
