Abstract : The purpose of this report is to: Review certain major theories of work motivation, particularly as related to job satisfaction; distill from such theories and other research, implications for an Air Force job satisfaction research program; and provide a comprehensive bibliography of satisfaction/retention studies. The theoretical positions considered were two-factor, equity, instrumentality-expectancy, Cornell studies of satisfactions, and need-fulfillment. Certain implications and conclusions relevant to Air Force job satisfaction/retention research were derived, a general model of satisfaction/tenure for further inquiry was developed, and various recommendations regarding a long-range systematic research program were offered.
