Abstract

Job satisfaction is a complex variable and is influenced by situational factors of the job environment as well as dispositional characteristics of an individual. The aim of this study was to determine the possible relationship between locus of control and job satisfaction. The Locus of Control Questionnaire and Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire were administered on 101 senior police members in the North West Province. The results of the empirical study confirm a correlation of large effect between locus of control (combination of internal control, external control and autonomy) and job satisfaction of senior police personnel. A moderate negative correlation was also found between an external locus of control and the job satisfaction of senior police personnel.

Die doel van hierdie ondersoek was om die moontlike verband tussen lokus van beheer en werkstevredenheid te bepaal. Die Lokus van Beheer-vraelys en Minnesota Tevredenheidsvraelys is op 101 senior polisiepersoneellede in die Noordwes-Provinsie afgeneem.
