Particularly, job satisfaction, along with its many individual, organizational, and societal correlates can be directly impacted by the nature of the workplace. This paper examines the theoretical and empirical developments in the literature linking job quality characteristics and worker satisfaction. Additional, suggestions for continued future research directions are also discussed.
