Diff�Rence De Satisfaction Dans L'Emploi Entre Secteurs � But Lucratif Et � But Non Lucratif: Le R�Le Jou� Par Les Caract�Ristiques D'Emploi

  • Mathieu NARCY

Cet article cherche à estimer, pour un échantillon issu de sept pays européens, le différentiel de satisfaction dans l'emploi entre les secteurs à but non lucratif et à but lucratif, et à en examiner les causes. La richesse des données utilisées permet, contrairement aux études antérieures, de prendre en compte les différences de caractéristiques d'emploi entre les deux secteurs. Les résultats obtenus révèlent que la plus grande satisfaction dans l'emploi des salariés du secteur à but non lucratif résulte principalement de caractéristiques mesurant l'autonomie et l'intér�t de l'emploi et d'une plus grande satisfaction vis-à-vis de leur autonomie et de la nature du travail qu'ils effectuent, éléments susceptibles de contribuer au développement de la motivation intrinsèque des salariés.
