Abstract

With the rapid development of China’s economy after the reform and opening up, the competitiveness among various enterprises has gradually shifted to the competition for human resources, and the physical and mental health development and practical needs of individual employees have attracted the great attention of scholars from all international parties, and the individual employee’s behaviors, attitudes, and identification with the organization, i.e., the level of organizational commitment, have a great impact on the enterprise’s economic performance and stable development. The purpose of this study is threefold: (1) To test whether there is a significant difference between the personal traits of the respondents in terms of job satisfaction and organizational commitment. (2) To test whether respondents’ job satisfaction has a significant positive effect on organizational commitment and its dimensions (3) To test whether respondents’ job satisfaction is predictive of organizational commitment. In this study, a quantitative research method was used to distribute and collect data through questionnaires from 406 employees from 19 state-owned enterprises in Shanxi Province, China. Descriptive statistics, independent samples t-test, one-way ANOVA, correlation analysis, and regression analysis were used to verify the research hypotheses of this paper using SPSS27 data analysis software on the 406 valid data collected. The results of the study show that (1) in the survey and analysis of state-owned enterprise employees, it is found that there is no significant difference in the perceived level of job satisfaction and organizational commitment of state-owned enterprise employees in terms of different demographic characteristics such as gender, age, education, and years of working experience. (2) There is a positive correlation between job satisfaction and organizational commitment of employees in Chinese state-owned enterprises, which can indicate that the greater the degree of job satisfaction of employees with their organizations, the more pronounced the organizational commitment will be and the higher their performance level will be. (3) Employees’ job satisfaction in state-owned enterprises positively predicts their organizational commitment. Finally, based on the results of this paper, practical and effective improvement measures are proposed, which in turn cultivate the subjective initiative of employees and improve the good organizational commitment of state-owned enterprise employees.
