||A questionnaire survey of 218 university personnel showed that job-satisfaction measures were significantly related to perceptions of health. Satisfactory perceptions of coworkers was the strongest predictor of health perceptions, and the strongest predictor of resistance to illness. Other significant factors were autonomy, the work done on the present job, and pay. Satisfaction with supervision and opportunities for promotion were not predictive of health-perception measures. Implications for enhanced employee health include a greater emphasis on coworker relationships.
