Using nationally representative linked employer-employee data for Britain we find school staff are more satisfied with their jobs than employees in other workplaces, but the difference disappears when controlling for perceived non-pecuniary job quality. School employees are more committed to their organization than non-school employees, a difference that remains large and statistically significant having conditioned on job quality and other features of employees’ working environment. Using panel data for workplaces and their employees observed in 2004 and 2011 we find increases in organizational commitment are linked to improvements in workplace performance in schools, but not in other workplaces.
