The Impact of Psychological Factors on the Job Satisfaction of Senior Auditors
and Adrian Harrell
This study examines the relationship between several psychological factors
and the job satisfaction of senior auditors employed by a large public
accounting firm. The results imply that senior auditors' job satisfaction
is positively and directly influenced by their influence-orientation, and
negatively influenced by undesirable work stress. In addition, auditors'
job satisfaction is indirectly influenced by achievement motivation and
undesirable life stress, which in turn directly influences perceived undesirable
work stress. Both satisfaction and the number of hours senior auditors
are willing to devote to work activities are found to be directly associated
with long-term career intentions.
