Abstract
Job satisfaction has been closely linked with productivity at work and organizational commitment. Time constraints and smaller budgets would normally prevent us from
covering on all the relevant reasons. A few primary issues could be regarded as the most critical factors concerning job satisfaction. My purpose in this study is an attempt to verify the primary determinants, in terms of impact.
The selected subjects were 6,783 employees in D airline. My testing methods include regression analysis, general linear model, frequency analysis, Anova test and correlation analysis applied to verify the study. The conclusion of this study revealed that there were two primary variable clusters.

Abstract

This paper examines the relationship between the investment purpose of toehold
investor and the target firm’s value using a hand-collected sample of 101 changes in
investment purpose from Korea during 2005. I find evidence that a toehold investor creates value by changes in the declared intention of investment from passive to active participation. Specifically, the announcement is followed by statistically
significant abnormal returns of 1.97% and 2.82% during the 3 day window and 11 day
window surrounding the announcement date respectively. The highest abnormal returns occur when toehold investors are foreign and declared investment purpose is comprehensive. The results suggest that even simple change in investment purpose, not accompanied by additional share acquisition, can affect firm value by influencing the likelihood and magnitude of value enhancing events.
