Abstract

The aim of this study was to (1) explore the antecedents of truck drivers’ job satisfaction, (2) identify the impact of financial and nonfinancial job properties on satisfaction with the job and with one's employer, and (3) the drivers’ proneness to retaining their jobs. Based on the extant literature, we develop a conceptual model that is tested using survey data for 164 truck drivers.Multiple linear and ordinal logistic regressions were used to estimate the proposed effects.The results reveal that nonfinancial job properties and satisfaction with one's employer affect job satisfaction is statistically significant.Financial and nonfinancial job properties affect satisfaction with one's employer whereas the former shows a lower impact compared to the latter.Satisfaction with the job and one's employer impacts retention proneness.The contribution of this study was to (1) add to the understanding of the factors that predict retention of truck drivers in relationship to job satisfaction and (2) highlight the different roles of financial and nonfinancial job properties in this specific work context.
