Abstract

Employees do not work for a living but for the job nowadays. It is very important to make sure what influence the job has on the job satisfaction. On the basis of a job
characteristics model, this study aims to identify the relationships between job characteristics and job satisfaction. The theoretical meaning of this study is to
supplement the job characteristics model and incentive theory by answering two questions-whether the job characteristic model can adapt to enterprises in China and
whether the relationship between job characteristic and job satisfaction will change under different job circumstances. The practical meaning of this study is to offer some considerations for the organizations in China on job redesigning and job enrichment.Research variables are dimensions of job characteristics (job control, job variety,
autonomy, dealing with others, friendship), job satisfaction.This study collected samples from 13 corporations and these corporations can be divided into four different organizations. All of these corporations come from six proviences in china. The respondents in this study work in management, marketing,manufacturing and R&D.
