Job Satisfaction in Times of Crisis

Will the “satisfaction equation” or the desire for development and ambition during good times change to a greater appreciation of stability and relationships in the long term?

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Paula T. Leñero, Human Capital Manager at Deloitte Costa Rica, analyzed the possible changes in the definition of job satisfaction in times of crisis.

"During normal times, it is usual for job security perception, as an element of satisfaction, to be overcome by other needs such as professional development or fair compensation. However, in times like those that lie ahead, stability will be an element of high valuation, more so than other needs. It is important to explore whether this regression of the satisfaction equation" that has occurred in previous generations will affect current and future generations, and in the same manner. That is: Will we have more young people who value stability and long-term relationships over other aspects of satisfaction?"
