ABSTRACT
This article discusses the connections between job performance, effort and job satisfaction. In a 2006 "Journal of Marketing" article, Markus Christen and David Soberman of INSEAD and Ganesh Iyler of the University of California at Berkeley argue the need to consider job characteristics, effort and compensation to better understand the connections between firm performance, job satisfaction and job performance. They review the connections in view of agency theory and conclude that job satisfaction and job performance are weakly connected.
