Private and Public Sectors University Employees: A Study of their Life Satisfaction, Job Satisfaction and Perceived Stress
This study aims to determine difference in life satisfaction, job satisfaction and perceived stress of private and public sector university employees. It was hypothesized that life satisfaction, and job satisfaction of public sector university employees would be more and their perceived stress would be less than private sector university employees. As additional variables, employees’ difference was also assessed on the variables of marital status, birth order, educational level and economic position of the employees.120 employees including 60 from public and 60 from private sector universities participated in this study. Participants were asked to complete study scales. Result analysis of t-test clearly shows insignificant difference between public and private sector employees on all the variables. Hence, it is clear that public and private sector employees’ life satisfaction, job satisfaction and perceived stress is similar and they do not differ on these factors. The research has positive implications as it makes it clear and suggest to those interested in adopting teaching as profession in public sectors only that they may without any hesitation apply in private sector universities also.
