Abstract

The paper investigates the effects of age, gender and length of service on job satisfaction at work place. The cross-sectional study was conducted by utilizing the “the Job Satisfaction Survey”. 25 out of 42 Business Links in England selected at random for this study where 14 out of 25 Links participated in the study that constituted a total sample of 101 employees with a response rate of 30.8%. A three-way ANOVA statistical tool was used to test the strength of relationship. While the socio-demographic factors were adjusted for each other; length of service in the present job was found to be significantly negatively related with the satisfaction level of promotion and female employees were found to be significantly more satisfied than male counterparts with fringe benefit. The findings have invaluable policy implications for business executives as well as policy-makers, particularly for those interested in the management of the Business Links.
