ABSTRACT
For most people, working is essential in order to earn the economic income that is required to sustain one’s life. Within this framework, the research has been conducted on the meaning of work, its importance, and its benefits for the worker. An important part of existing research are investigations into “job satisfaction,” which expresses whether people are happy and fulfilled in their work.
This research adds to that literature as the authors have researched job satisfaction levels of working individuals to discover important variables that affect job satisfaction. The research was conducted in 2018 with 217 professional staff working in the Anatolian part of Istanbul. In this research, both a “Personal Information Form” and “Job Satisfaction Scale” were used.
