Abstract

What motivates someone to seek out employment at a given institution can be influenced by many factors such as work-related aspects, personal considerations, and move convenience. The subsequent satisfaction or dissatisfaction that an employee experiences is often affected by personal interactions, the work, recognition, and progression, alongside the employment package. The importance of features such as expectation and developments over time can also be telling. The role that the institutional and local community exert over an employee, for better or worse, can likewise have a powerful effect. On that note, this chapter will draw on distinct case study examples at two different transnational higher education (TNHE) providers and consider a collection of individual employment motivation and subsequent job satisfaction experiences. This work will also analyse the individuals' perceptions of their communities and personal wellbeing and the impact all of this has had on their employment.
