IELTS Writing: Job satisfaction and security

Some people argue job satisfaction is more important than job security. Others believe a permanent job is more important. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion.

Nowadays, an increasing number of people are concerned about how to stabilise the job position. However, whether we should put the job security in the first place has become a controversial issue. I agree with the view that job satisfaction is far more important for employees.

Firstly, it is obvious that people who are doing improper job will not be satisfied with it. The staff in the company will find that he can not maximise his talent, which will bring negative effect on his working ability. Therefore, the intrinsic job dissatisfaction will do harm both to individual and organisation, even though the job is permanent.

Moreover, sometimes the job dissatisfaction comes from outside factors such as the stressful relationship with superiors and colleagues, low salary and uncomfortable working environment, which will also dismantle the enthusiasm and vitality in the workplace. As a result, the working efficiency and productivity will also be decreased. So this kind of extrinsic job dissatisfaction should be avoided too.

That is not to say that the job security is not desirable at all. Some people prefer to have a permanent job without worrying about getting fired so that they could spare no efforts to work. But to be honest, this situation is to some extent kind of idealism.

In sum, job satisfaction is far more important than job security as long as we want to boost the economy; meanwhile, we should not forget to provide the guaranteed position for the benefit of workers. Only by doing so can we ensure that every employee in the workplace can make the most contribution.
