Abstract
The study delved into telecommuting and traditional work environment as determinants of job satisfaction as perceived by individual contributors and supervisors of a multinational manufacturing firm based in the USA. Specifically, the researchers intend to find out if there is a significant relationship between the respondents’ profile variables and the perception of the individual contributors and supervisors on telecommuting. Consequently, the paper established the relationship between job satisfaction and the traditional work environment and with telecommuting. The study employed quantitative-descriptive design by utilizing primary data through survey method. The study used the perception survey with three parts, namely, demographic profile, job satisfaction, and telecommuting survey. For the interpretation of data, frequency distribution, mean scores, percentage, and chi-square (tested at 0.05 level of significance) were used. The major results revealed that the respondents have better job satisfaction as they practice telecommuting and that they prefer this as an alternative work environment over the traditional office setup. In the light of the foregoing data, it is recommended that industries of today consider how technology can be of advantage not only for the machinery to improve its productivity and output but most importantly to enhance the employees’ welfare. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2020.
