Job satisfaction and labour market mobility
The European Year of Mobility 2006 recognises that geographic and job mobility raises flexibility in the labour market and may contribute to job growth in the European Union. It is frequently claimed that the European Employment Strategy focuses mainly on creating more jobs and less effort is devoted to creating better jobs. A useful measure for the quality of jobs is job satisfaction – one of the major focuses of this research report. In particular, the relationship between job satisfaction and different indicators of labour market mobility are analysed, as both constitute important elements of the European employment strategy.
