An Empirical Study of the Social Correlates of Job Satisfaction Among Plant Science Graduates of a Midwestern University: A Test of Victor H. Vroom's (1964) Expectancy Theory
The main focus of this book is to empirically examine the social correlates of job satisfaction among plant science graduates who work in agriculture. Victor H. Vroom's (1964) expectancy theory guides the study. The theory views motivation as a complex process involving multiple perceptions because human beings are constantly changing, growing, thereby making it difficult to manage. Employers and managers must recognize these human realities and try to provide their employees with the kind of rewards (intrinsic or extrinsic) that ultimately lead to their satisfaction. Job satisfaction's link to performance, productivity, and personal growth makes it the most studied job attitude in social organizations. Additionally, the study blends theory and application rarely found in other textbooks, which makes An Empirical Study of the Social Correlates of Job Satisfaction among Plant Science Graduates of a Mid-Western University useful to students of Sociology, Social Psychology, Plant Science and Business Management.
