The response rate of the questionnaire was 65,5 % meaning that 133 individuals answered. The result revealed a significant difference between employees with low SOC and employees with high SOC according to experience of job satisfaction. Employees with a high SOC did in fact enjoy going to work daily in a higher rate then employees with low SOC. This study shows that there is a relation between job satisfaction and high SOC.
