Description

Today’s competitive workplace requires that employees think creatively and take personal responsibility for their work as if they owned the business. Such ideal and perceived ownership can lead to higher productivity and better job satisfaction levels in the workplace. The purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between corporate entrepreneurship and organizational performance and overall job satisfaction. Using the responses of 450 employees who work in private companies in Thailand, the study found differences in corporate entrepreneurship and overall job satisfaction based on various demographic variables, namely education, occupation, and position. Regarding autonomy/work discretion, there are differences in autonomy/work discretion and demographic profile, which include gender, education level, salary, type of company, and type of business. Implications for practice and recommendations for future research are presented.
