Abstract


In modern competitive organizations, job satisfaction is an important psychological attribute that may play crucial role in organizational effectiveness and employees' well-being. Locus of control as a personality variable and
stressful life events are causally implicated in a variety of unenviable effects on our performance and health. The
present study was conducted on 210 managerial personnel in private sector organizations in India. The results of
correlation coefficients indicate that person positive was found to be significantly positively correlated with
satisfaction (job and total). Job positive was found to be significantly positively correlated with satisfaction
(management and total) and locus of control (external) was found to be significantly negatively correlated with
satisfaction (management and total). Results of stepwise multiple regression analysis indicate that person positive
(dimension of positive life events stress) emerges as predictor for satisfaction (job and total) and job positive
(dimension of positive life events stress) emerge as predictor for satisfaction (management) while locus of control
(external) emerge as predictor for satisfaction (management and total) The finding of this study will help in
ameliorating the job satisfaction which helps to revamp the employees' performance and aggrandize the
organizational productivity.
