Group Factors and its Relationship with Job and Life Satisfaction in Diverse Organizations


  • S. Riasudeen
  • P. T. Srinivasan


This research focuses upon understanding whether the group factors will serve as predictors and explain the variance in individual's job and life satisfaction. A purposive sampling was adopted for the selection of 475 employees from the four different firms having global operations. A structured questionnaire was distributed amongst respondents and data were analyzed with hierarchical stepwise multiple regression analysis in order to assess the extent of variance in job satisfaction and life satisfaction. The results of the analysis indicate that the dimensions of group factors emerged as significant predictors of job satisfaction and life satisfaction in the diverse organizations.
