Health-impaired employees' job satisfaction: new evidence from Athens, Greece
AbstractThis study by utilizing the 2008 Athens Area Study (AAS) data set investigates four aspects of job satisfaction -- total pay, promotion prospects, respect received from one's supervisor and total job satisfaction -- between healthy and heath-impaired employees. Health-impaired employees are found to be less satisfied according to all job satisfaction measures even when a large number of productivity features and job characteristics are controlled for. The outcomes also suggest that women are more satisfied with their jobs than men are, regardless of health status. Moreover, the estimations show that health-impaired employees' job satisfaction is affected more than healthy employees' job satisfaction by adverse mental health symptoms (life dissatisfaction). Finally, health-impaired employees are found to become more satisfied with their jobs with time after disability onset. This study concludes that health-impaired employees may have higher expectations about what they will obtain from their work, as well as they may have job satisfaction adjustments.
