Relationship between time perspective and job satisfaction
International Journal of Human Resources Development and Management, 2018, vol. 18, issue 1/2, 145-165
This study explores the relationships between time perspective dimensions, the big five personality traits and job satisfaction. People with higher past-positive and lower past-negative and present-fatalistic time perspectives are more satisfied with their jobs, individuals with higher present-hedonism show higher affective job satisfaction, and those with higher future time perspective show a higher cognitive job satisfaction. Results also show that time perspective dimensions and a balanced time perspective explain additional variance in job satisfaction beyond the one explained by personality traits, age and gender. Additional variance of 2.3%/1.3% for affective job satisfaction, 7.9%/3.1% for intrinsic job satisfaction, 2.9%/1.0% for extrinsic job satisfaction and 6.1%/2.4% for general job satisfaction was explained by time perspective dimensions/balanced time perspective. Results of the study can guide possible interventions to affect organisational commitment, turnover intentions and other outcomes of job satisfaction.
