Job Satisfaction among Jordanian Speech-language Pathologists and Audiologists
Job satisfaction is an important factor that is correlated positively to enhanced job performance, high motivation, and positive factors and is correlated negatively to burn out and job attrition. This study aimed at studying demographics of Jordanian speech language pathologists and audiologists and measure their level of job satisfaction. 34 respondents participated in the study. Results show that Jordanian speech language pathologists and audiologists’ satisfaction was insignificantly below average (p=.843). Factors that significantly affected job satisfaction were: therapy outcomes (p=0.001), income (p=0.012), time management (p=0.028), work pressure (p=0.003), vacations (p=0.001), and job security (p=0.021). Demographics of Jordanian audiologists and speech language pathologists were also discussed in the study.
