Work Satisfaction

We have called this chapter ‘Work Satisfaction’ rather than ‘Job Satisfaction’ as many of us do things which we might not regard as a Job, as such, rather the Work which we do. It might involve being salaried or volunteering, being an employee or an employer, looking after dependents and caring, working in business or the third sector, looking after a family and a home, or working freelance from home and so on. Some might argue that what they do is more of a vocation or a calling. It’s still work.
