Workplace job satisfaction in Britain: evidence from linked employer-employee data

Haile, Getinet A.



The paper examines the nature of workplace job satisfaction in Britain using an 'overall' and domain-specific job satisfaction outcomes from linked employer-employee data. A measure of aggregate job satisfaction alone might mask domain-specific differences in satisfaction; something the combined approach in this paper addresses. As well as controlling for a rich set of correlates on employees and their workplaces, the paper deploys alternative empirical models that account for employee-and workplace-level unobserved heterogeneity. The paper reports interesting results on the link between job satisfaction and observed as well as unobserved characteristics of employees and their workplaces.
