The impact of Social Relations on Job Satisfaction for the case of Kosovo

Job Satisfaction plays a crucial role in the daily life and in the well-being of individuals. Thus, the aim of this paper is to investigate the job satisfaction in small and medium enterprises in Kosovo and to assess the impact of social relations on this variable. In order to conduct this analysis, a database from 308 questionnaires was built and the ordered probit regression was implemented. These questionnaires were conducted with employees of small and medium enterprises, in the main regions of Kosovo. The questions were related with family characteristics, job characteristics while the focus was on social relations, such as meeting with family member, relatives, colleagues and lovers.
From the regression is suggested that people that meet their friends, independent weather it is once a month, once a week or every day, makes them more satisfied with their job. Also, meeting the lovers once a month effects job satisfaction. On the other hand, visiting family members or colleagues does not affect job satisfaction.

Giving Voice To Employees And Spreading Information Within The Firm: The Manner Matters

The aim of this paper is to verify empirically whether giving voice to employees and spreading information within the firm increase job satisfaction, while thoroughly analyzing if different means imply different consequences. The analysis was carried out using a British data set: “Changing Employment Relationship, Employment Contracts and the Future of Work Survey (Working in Britain 2000)’’. An ordered probit model was used for estimation. The results confirm the effects of individual features on job satisfaction, as highlighted in previous studies. The analysis shows that job satisfaction can be enhanced by spreading information within the organization and by giving voice to employees, but the management must choose communication strategies perceived as reliable by the employees.
