Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire


The Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire or the MSQ has been designed for measuring the overall satisfaction that an employee derives from his or her job. There are three types of forms available as a part of the questionnaire and this includes two long forms (versions created in 1967 and 1977) and one short form. The Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire offers specific information regarding various aspects of a job that an employee finds satisfying and rewarding. Here is a sample of the MSQ:
