The relationship between job satisfaction and social support is complex. Researchers found that age, gender, education, and workplace characteristics all moderate the impact of job stress. The role of non-directive social support in promoting job satisfaction was also identified. Self-efficacy, or self-confidence, is an important mediator of the relationship between social support and job performance. In addition, Chinese culture values group harmony and high levels of non-directive social supports predict a high level of job satisfaction.
In a study of Norwegian employees, the relation between social support and job satisfaction was examined. Employees who worked in private kindergartens reported receiving more non-directive social support than those working in offices. They were also more likely to report positive job satisfaction compared to those who reported receiving more directive social support. However, the relationship between social supports and job satisfaction was weaker. Further research should focus on the role of SS and job-related social support in the context of social support and job satisfaction.
The relationship between job satisfaction and social support can also be indirect. In addition to reducing job stress, social support may increase job satisfaction. It is known that low levels of prosocial service are associated with low job satisfaction, and that a high level of job satisfaction is positively related to low levels of prosocial service. In addition, the relationship between job satisfaction and social supports and prosocial behavior is partially mediated by social support. But this relationship is still not clear.
In the present study, job satisfaction and social support were found to be independently associated with burnout and work-family conflict. The study used an averaging item method to assess the relationship between job satisfaction and social support. The results showed that older people had higher levels of job satisfaction than those who did not. Furthermore, those who were less satisfied with their work had lower scores than younger people. The relationship between job satisfaction and social care and psychosomatic problems was inverse.
In contrast to the previous studies, this study showed that the relationships between job satisfaction and social support were also significant. The study also found that social support was an important mediator between job stress and job satisfaction. In this study, the relationship between SE and SS was significant, despite the low SS. Ultimately, job satisfaction and social support may play an important role in enhancing the quality of life. The findings show that both are linked.
In a previous study, a relationship between job satisfaction and social support was also found to be significant for job satisfaction and the perception of work demands. While job satisfaction and social support are related, the relationship between the two variables was weaker for non-directive social supports and greater levels of JS among older workers. The authors suggest that these two factors are related. The research results indicate that the correlation between job satisfaction and SHCs is significant.
The study also found that the relationship between job satisfaction and social support is indirect. Although there was a direct relationship between social support and job satisfaction, it was moderated by role stress. The researchers concluded that the relationship between social ties and job satisfaction is not significant. They concluded that the relationship between the two variables was not significant. A more robust study would be more likely to include these variables as predictors. There is a correlation between job satisfaction and social support.
According to the results of Wang Y. (2012), social support and JS were negatively related. The study also found that SS is related to age and the quality of a job. Global empowerment is associated with high job satisfaction. The study results also indicate a positive relationship between these two variables. This suggests that the relationship between job satisfaction and social support is important for employee welfare. It is not surprising that these two factors were positively correlated with one another.
In a recent study by Saragih and Margaretha, the relationship between job satisfaction and social support was positive for both KS and SS. KS is an indicator of the degree of social support in a workplace. While JS is important for work performance, the relationship between SS and health outcomes is important for the health of employees. The more people who have positive feelings at work, the more productive they are. In turn, this affects the quality of service and job satisfaction.
