Job Satisfaction Canvas: Analyzing Person-Task Fit, Value Gap, and Perceived Equity

Answer the questions in each building block of the job satisfaction canvas. Please make sure that you provide brief answers in each cell. Where required, you need to briefly justify your answers in a given cell and consider the linkages with answers given in other cells (building blocks) of the canvas. Please make sure you use organisational behaviour terms and concepts when you answer the questions.

You can complete the job satisfaction canvas focusing on yourself and your job. If you don’t work, you can interview a friend or a family member who works and provide answers to the questions using information they provide. The goal is that you compare the existing characteristics of someone’s job with their personal goals, interests and their characteristics and find out about the existing gaps between the ideal situation and the existing situation. This can help to determine if the existing job fits the person’s characteristics, goals, … or not and identify what are the causes of job satisfaction or dissatisfaction for the person.

Your personality

· Describe the way you like to work and relate to others. In other words, what are your key personality tendencies (e.g. being an Introvert; conscientious, …)?

Outline your personality traits and in a few sentences provide some examples showing that you have those traits.

Your interests

People whom you like to interact with

Value you aim to offer to people/society
