Abstract

The purpose of this research is to study job satisfaction, within an new labor culture environment, which has modified the rigid vertical organizational structure and has challenged new payment modalities, flexible production systems and labor competences-based profiles. This new stage has pointed to the search of a further competitiveness, where new job exigences stand for personnel satisfaction. Through a three-firm comparative descriptive study, performed in Bajío community (Mexico), which business activities are food, chemical and metal, access has been obtained toward the three labor environments. On the basis of their management models and employee job satisfaction those firms have been described. Job satisfaction results are interpreted according to several suggestions such as Expectancy Theory and Equity Theory by Stacy Adams.
