Job-satisfaction in the Broader Framework of the Capability Approach
Being one of the leading paradigms for analyzing human well-being, the Capability Approach (CA) may serve as a frame of reference for job-satisfaction. The CA mainly argues for (1) complementing information on job-satisfaction by the more objective conception of “valuable work” to avoid biases due to adaptive preferences and (2) taking a holistic perspective of the multidimensional work-situation while (3) emphasizing the importance of opportunities and individual choice and agency. Thereby the CA provides a new perspective on classical insights on job-satisfaction by putting them into a broader framework. This paper is but a first tentative appreciation of the CA in this context.
