SLPs' Prioritization of Job Satisfaction Factors

The 2011 Membership Survey [PDF] asked members to indicate the three most important factors for accepting or staying in a job. For the purposes of this survey, SLP respondents in health care were categorized as working in a hospital, residential health care (e.g., skilled nursing facilities), or nonresidential health care (e.g., home health and outpatient clinics).

The top three factors were the same for all health care settings:

  1. Flexibility to balance life and work
  2. Compensation/pay
  3. Meaningfulness of job

In addition, benefits (health care, retirement, etc.) and the type of clients/patients were factors that rated high in importance for all three settings. Job security was the least important factor when accepting or staying in a job.
