They probably wouldn't work for free. Nonetheless, money has little to do with job satisfaction for a significant number of employees. In a recently released study conducted last fall by CNNfn and the Society for Human Resource Management, 605 workers were asked to gauge the extent to which salary and other types of compensation contribute to their job satisfaction. Four percent said it contributes "to no extent at all," and 10 percent said it does so "to a small extent." Just 16 percent said it does "to a large extent." Still, the study also found that 87 percent of workers who are satisfied with their pay are also satisfied with their jobs. (When in doubt, pay your employees!) And, happily, a majority of workers are at least somewhat satisfied with the compensation they receive (see chart). Workers were slightly less disposed to feel their base pay is fair in comparison to others': 7 percent were very dissatisfied on that score, and 20 percent were somewhat dissatisfied.
