Abstract (summary)

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between perceived organizational support, job satisfaction, and perceived sexual orientation diversity acceptance. The population of interest was employed Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender (GLBT) individuals in the United States. A purposive sample method was used, resulting in 320 participants who completed a web-based survey questionnaire.

The data was analyzed utilizing descriptive statistics, sample t tests, and correlation to evaluate four hypotheses. There is evidence based on demographic comparisons of the sample that the findings of this study might be applicable to the GLBT population. This study revealed that individuals reporting high diversity acceptance environments also reported higher levels of perceived organizational support and higher levels of job satisfaction.
