Telecommuting and Its Associations with Job Satisfaction: Going the Extra Mile
by Swisher, Jill L., Ed.D., Concordia University Irvine, 2019, 131; 13902109
Abstract (Summary)

Telework job arrangements have been touted as beneficial to both individuals and organizations, but outcomes have been inconclusive or paradoxical. Using multiple regression analysis and content analysis, this study empirically and phenomenologically examines job satisfaction for teleworkers concerning the quality of their relationships with leaders, support from their organizations, and conflicts between their work and household responsibilities. The findings indicate that extent of telecommuting is not a significant predictor of job satisfaction for teleworkers, but that it is the joint effects of supervisory and organizational support that best predict job satisfaction.
