Working flexibility and job satisfaction are considered in this study. The most important assets of any organization are its human resources, which differ from other assets due to their psycho-social nature. This distinct nature requires the job satisfaction of workers to be considered, further driving the authors to focus on work flexibility. The inherent demographic differences among workers may also influence job satisfaction. This possibility led the authors to consider the potential relationships between demographic characteristics and job satisfaction in the analysis of work flexibility. The analysis was performed on the teaching staff of one of the leading foundation (private) universities in Turkey, and work flexibility involved teaching in classrooms and via distance education. The results indicated that job satisfaction was influenced by different factors depending on the teaching style and that some of these factors varied according to the demographic characteristics of the participants.
