Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Gender Differences in Job Satisfaction and Organizational Commitment in the Video Game Industry
by Lau, Szengar Sarah, M.A., Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, 2019, 50; 13878106
Abstract (Summary)

One major criticism of the video game industry is rampant gender-based discrimination, including sexual harassment. Past research showed that workplace sexual harassment negatively affects job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Little to no research had been conducted on how gender discrimination, specifically workplace sexual harassment, could affect organizational commitment and job satisfaction for those who work in the video game industry. This study aimed to examine gender differences in organizational commitment and job satisfaction within the video game industry. No significant relationships were found. Future research and practical implications were given.
