Abstract


Objective: To assess the factors (both job motivating and de-motivating) influencing the stability of senior executives in corporate hospitals and to find out the correlates of those job motivating and de-motivating factors.

Methods: A cross sectional design was adopted for this study in which 14 factors were chosen to assess the level of job satisfaction using a five point Likert scale questionnaire. Seventy six senior executives with at least minimum 10 years of work experience from various corporate hospitals of India were interviewed using a non probability convenience sampling technique.

Results: Majority (more than 75%) of the senior executives were satisfied with their job. Age, sex and work experience could not significantly affect the job satisfaction except for the stability of the job and salary and other added benefits.

Conclusion: The current study makes an important contribution to the literature in finding the determinants of job satisfaction among senior executives built upon evidence from the findings.
