Abstract
Time pressure generally affects the work and life of employees. This paper conducts a questionnaire survey of 166 employees of Guangzhou hotel and catering enterprises to explore the impact of time pressure on job satisfaction.The results show that the time pressure at work has an inverted U-Shape effect on job satisfaction, what is, there is a stress level for optimal working hours. At this point, the job satisfaction of individual reaches the highest value. If it lower or higher than this pressure level, the individual's job satisfaction is far from the best job satisfaction level. Based on the research conclusions, this paper suggests that enterprise managers should update the concept of time management, rationally design their work, and find the balance point of using time pressure at work to motivate employees, thus stimulating employees' work motivation and improving their work performance.
