This study assessed the impact of participation in a health promotion program and engagement in healthy behaviors on job satisfaction.
A survey response rate of 70% (n=1,283) was obtained at a northern state university with an established worksite health promotion program.
Significant differences in job satisfaction were obtained by education level, job classification, marital status, dependents, and regular exercise behaviors.
No differences in job satisfaction were obtained by health promotion program involvement or any other health behavior other than regular exercise.
Results suggest that health promotion programs do not significantly impact job satisfaction.
Rather, job design and the psychosocial aspects of the work environment may be more influential in improving job satisfaction.
Based on the results of this study, organizations attempting to improve employee health should provide health promotion programs and address the job itself To improve job satisfaction, attention to the job itself is required.
