The aim of this paper is to clarify the relationship between psycho-environmental variables and work satisfaction by comparing them in a single model of psycho-organizational variables whose impact on satisfaction at work is well known. One hundred and twelve French supermarket workers completed a questionnaire composed of indicators assessing: (a) job satisfaction (ESVP and M.S.Q), (b) psycho-environmental variables (EALT, A-E scale, and a questionnaire about workspace appropriation and workplace attachment), and (c) psycho-organizational variables using some of Karasec’s control scales, Geurts’ SWING, and Meyer, Allen, and Smith’s organizational commitment scale. Regression analysis showed that the psycho-environmental variables were predictors of job satisfaction, some being more relevant predictors of the MSQ and particularly of the ESVP than the psycho-organizational variables. These results contribute to the current debate on the operationalization of the concept of job satisfaction. [less ▲]
