  Both Extrinsic And Intrinsic Job Satisfaction


Abstract

In the study of job satisfaction z-test was used to evaluate the hypothesis of whether gender satisfaction was related with gender and the position held. It was obtained that intrinsic job satisfaction is related with gender and that extrinsic job satisfaction is related with the position held by an individual.


 Introduction

Both extrinsic and intrinsic job satisfaction can result from various factors. The paper analyses the relationship between job extrinsic job satisfaction and the position held by an individual as also evaluates the intrinsic job satisfaction with the gender of the employee.


Hypothesis Test #1  Looking at Intrinsic Satisfaction by Gender

Null and alternate hypotheses

Null hypothesis H0: Intrinsic job satisfaction is not related with gender at 0.05 significance level Vs.

Alternative hypothesis: H1: Intrinsic job satisfaction is related with gender at 0.05 significance level


The test

The test was conducted by use of z-test.

The significance level of the analysis is 95%. The obtained test statistics is 3.25382E-79. From the t-tables the tabulated critical value in accordance with the given data set is stated to be 1.992.

Stating decision

From the obtained statistics the decision is to reject the null hypothesis and accept the alternative hypothesis. This implies that we make the conclusion that there is a relationship between the intrinsic job satisfaction and gender.


Explanation of decision made

The decision to reject the null hypothesis is arrived at from the fact that the calculated value of 3.25 is greater than the tabulated value (critical value) 1.992.


Applications for managers

This information can be used by the managers of a company to put into consideration gender factors when checking the job satisfaction of individuals in a company. This will ensure that both men and women are treated as they should be in any organization. This can increase their productivity.


Hypothesis Test #2  Looking at Extrinsic Satisfaction by Position

Null and alternate hypotheses

Null hypothesis H0: Extrinsic job satisfaction is not related with position at 0.05 alpha level

Alternative hypothesis H1: Extrinsic job satisfaction is related with the position an individual is holding at 0.05 alpha level.


The test

After conducting a z-test, the obtained value is 3.12605E-64.

The significance level is 95% and the test statistics (tabulated value) which is the value obtained from the t-table is 1.992.


Stating decision

From the obtained results we reject the null hypothesis and accept the alternative. We therefore conclude that the extrinsic job satisfaction is related with the position an individual is holding.


Explanation of decision made

The decision to reject the null hypothesis is obtained from the fact that the calculated value of 3.126 is greater than the tabulated value of 1.992.


Applications for managers

The managers of a company can find this information valuable when trying to attain extrinsic job satisfaction of its staffs. They should understand that the position an individual holds is a determinant factor of whether he will be having extrinsic job satisfaction.


Z and T Tests

For data sets to be analyzed with z-tests they should be independent from each other it is also preferable for data with n greater than 30. On the other hand t-test is also used in the case independent data sets except of paired sample test. T-test is preferable when the sample size (n) value is less than 30.


Samples and Populations 

A sample is representation of a population. Samples are used for testing of hypothesis because it is hard to collect data on the entire target population so one opts to choose a piece of population and make conclusions based on it.


Conclusion

In the given analysis when using the sample test as a representative of the entire population it was obtained that the intrinsic job satisfaction is both related to gender and the position held by an individual. This information is necessary to managers to enable them satisfy the needs of their subordinates.
