MARTINEZ, Isabel M.  and  CIFRE, Eva. Individual and group antecedents of job satisfaction: a one-lab multilevel study. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.2, pp.565-570. ISSN 1695-2294.

This study examines the simultaneous effect of individual (selfefficacy) and group variables (cohesion and gender diversity) on satisfaction. A laboratory study was conducted involving 373 college students randomly distributed across 79 small groups, who performed a laboratory task in about five hours. Two-level Hierarchical Linear Modeling (HLM) method was used. Results show the main effect from individual selfefficacy to satisfaction (both level 1), the cross-level effect from group cohesion (level 2) to individual satisfaction (level 1), and the interaction effect between self-efficacy and gender diversity to satisfaction. These results suggest that in a work group, satisfaction has a background in individual and group variables. Group cohesion and gender diversity have important effects on satisfaction. The article concludes with practical strategies and with limitations and suggestions for future research.

Keywords : Self-efficacy; cohesion; satisfaction; gender; multilevel.
