Master’s thesis is devoted to the research of individual and environmental factors, influencing employee job satisfaction in the company “3M Russia”. It’s based on the data, received during the questionnaire survey of the employees.

Rationale: job satisfaction factors are widely studied and there are a lot of classifications given, although most of them concentrate on external factors, especially payment and find it the most important. In our turn we want to study the influence of internal factors related with individual expectations and environmental factors.

In order to find out the significance of individual and environmental factors of employee job satisfaction following research methods were chosen: semi-structured interviews with HR managers of the company, online questionnaire. As a result the significance of those 2 group factors was revealed: individual factors are more significant than environmental, 54 to 46 % correspondingly. Problem areas of job satisfaction in company are: well-timed feedback by supervisors, career opportunities, recognition, and participation in managerial decisions.

On the ground of results obtained some recommendations on job satisfaction improvement in “3M Russia” were developed. They believe to contribute to decrease labour turn-over, growth of productivity and employer brand improvement in general.

Results obtained are advantageous for HR managers and company direction, who find employees as the source of competitiveness and aspire to keep high level of employee job satisfaction.
