Job demands and personal work style
Taking into consideration the O*NET, specialists from organizational psychology can determine what personal characteristics influence job performance. This present article aims to show whether a relationship exists between personal work style and job demands and what impact this has this on job involvement and satisfaction. The group of subjects consisted of 333 employees, who completed questionnaires in order to evaluate their preferred work style, their job requirements and degree of involvement on work and work satisfaction. The results showed that there is a match between work style and work demands, but work involvement does not mediate the relation between job characteristics and job satisfaction. These results can be used to propose strategies to increase the satisfaction level of employees.
