Older the worker, more is job satisfaction

Everybody gets employment at one time or another but the most important for everyone is job satisfaction, a satisfaction at work place with the kind of work, office environment, colleagues and many more.

The researchers at the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research carried an in-depth analysis of the professionals’ behaviour towards their work.

According to the researchers, older employees of the company are more satisfied with their work and derive benefits out of it that the younger ones.

During the study, they found that 9 in 10 workers who are age 50 or older say they are very or somewhat satisfied with their job. These workers reported satisfaction regardless of gender, race, educational level, political ideology and income level.

Sharing his experience, chef at Disneyland Martinez who’s not sure he ever wants to retire says, “To me, when I work, I’m happy.”

During the study, the researchers also found that though people across age groups are more likely to report job satisfaction than dissatisfaction, older workers consistently have expressed more happiness with their work than younger people have.

Six in 10 said colleagues turned to them for advice more often and more than 4 in 10 said they felt they were receiving more respect at work.

Older workers generally have already climbed the career ladder, increased their salaries and reached positions where they have greater security, so more satisfaction makes sense, says Tom Smith, director of the General Social Survey, one of the most comprehensive polls of American attitudes.
