Diferentes variables determinan el bienestar laboral. Así, basándonos en una encuesta con 4207 profesionales del sector de las tecnologías de la información, este artículo analiza la importancia del contenido del puesto de trabajo, el clima del equipo de trabajo, el liderazgo, el reconocimiento y compensación, las condiciones laborales físicas y las condiciones laborales personales en cuanto a aspectos clave de la satisfacción de los empleados. Los resultados concluyen que el contenido del puesto de trabajo es el primer aspecto que valoran los empleados en su rango de satisfacción. Las condiciones laborales físicas y el liderazgo son las variables menos significativas.
