• Manager responsiveness : the first step in subordinate job satisfaction

      Weigand, Jennifer Mary
      A model of job satisfaction is tested through predictive relationships of manager socio-communicative style and job affect in subordinates. Results of the study showed that manager socio-communicative style (specifically, responsiveness) predicts subordinate job affect and that subordinate job affect predicts their own job satisfaction (explaining 38% of the variance). However, the study did not support manager socio-communicative style directly affecting subordinate job satisfaction. This study also examines perceived socio-communicative style of managers based on sex. Results of this part of the study showed that there is no significant difference between the perceived socio-communicative style of managers based on a manager being male or female.
