This paper determines a model to analyze the effect of the job-related features on the labour satisfaction. The empirical contrast uses the Quality of Labour Life Survey corresponding to the year 2010 (Ministry of Labour and Immigration, Spain), and the applied model is the stepwise regression. The independent variables which explain the labour satisfaction are by importance: motivation, activity, labour organization, wage, working day, boss valuation, stability, personal development, holidays and permissions, and promotion possibilities. Results show that all the regression coefficients are positive and significant and the goodness of the final model is satisfactory because the independent variables are referred only to the organization characteristics.
