Job satisfaction

Moynihan, Boswell & Boudreau (2000), examined the influence of job satisfaction and three dimensions of organizational commitment (i.e., affective, continuance, and normative) on the intention to leave, job search activity, performance, and the leadership effectiveness of executives. The data used in this study is from a survey taken by 1,341 executives in the database of the Ray & Berndtson executive search firm. Inter correlations and descriptive statistics showed that the intention to leave was negatively correlated with job satisfaction (r= -.70, p .05).
