Abstract [en]

The study focused on the relationship between management styles and job satisfaction

of employees in the organization. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship

between management style, using Theory X and Y management style and job satisfaction as

moderated by employees’ self-efficacy and gender. The study involved N = 137 participants

from two different Swedish organizations in the engineering and manufacturing sector based

in Stockholm and Växjö, Sweden. The data was collected through surveys from each

participant. Study findings showed that there was a positive correlation between self-efficacy

and job satisfaction. Additionally, results revealed that the relationship between theory X and

Y and job satisfaction is not moderated by either self-efficacy and gender. Based on the study,

it was observed that job satisfaction is greatly impacted by management styles which are

oriented more towards theory Y than theory X in the relationship between management and

employees in organizations in Sweden. Thus, the study highlights the importance of

employee-oriented leadership style for the organizations and how this influences job

satisfaction of employees.
