Abstract
The correlation between the structural and positional factors of employees in the knowledge network and employees’ job satisfaction and their personality traits was studied in the paper, in which a manufacture enterprise in Xi'an City is taken as an example. We found that employees’ job satisfaction and their knowledge network centricity were positively associated; employees at the core position of the enterprises have a higher job satisfaction. In knowledge network, employees’ performance and their knowledge network centricity are positively associated. Employees at the core position of the knowledge network have strong presentation and communication skills. Job satisfaction and employees’ sociability, sense of responsibility are positively correlated, while their job satisfaction and their chance of taking risks are significantly negatively-correlated. When employees have a strong intention and ability of social communication, low intention of taking risks, strong sense of responsibility, they are likely to have a higher job satisfaction.
