This study aimed to reveal the features of the positive view of work among Japanese workers. Four hundred and eighteen Japanese workers completed a questionnaire to assess the positive view of work, job satisfaction, and the intention to serve the same company for many years. Job satisfaction was measured using two scales. One was the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) Scale, and the other was the Company Satisfaction Scale.
An analysis of variance revealed that the positive view of work among middle-aged and elderly managerial workers was higher than that among middle-aged and elderly nonmanagerial workers. In addition, a path analysis showed that the positive view of work was mainly influenced by MSQ, while the intention to serve the same company for many years was mainly influenced by company satisfaction. The subsequent two path analyses revealed that managerial workers and nonmanagerial workers exhibited some differences in the strength of these influences on both the positive view of work and the intention to serve the same company for many years.
