Discussion: differentiating job involvement from job satisfaction

 Job involvement is the extent to which individuals enjoy, look forward to, and/or identify with their jobs. Job involvement is related to, but is not the same as, the constructs of job satisfaction and organizational commitment. They share some characteristics and relate to important outcome variables such as turnover and absenteeism. However, job involvement, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment also differ in some specific ways. Role conflict, or the lack of compatibility between different job responsibilities, also can affect job involvement.

In this Discussion, you will differentiate job involvement, job satisfaction and organizational commitment and then explain the influence of role conflict on job involvement.

To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Read the article “The Impact of Expatriates’ Cross-Cultural Adjustment on Work Stress and Job Involvement in the High-Tech Industry.” Consider job involvement and how it differs from job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
  • Read the article “Job Satisfaction, Organizational Commitment and Job Involvement: The Mediating Role of Job Involvement.” Consider the role of job involvement as a mediating factor in job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
  • Read the article “The Role of Self-Efficacy in Job Satisfaction, Organizational Commitment, Motivation and Job Involvement.” Think about how self-efficacy can influence job involvement, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment.
