The purpose of the study on which this article reports is to use affective events theory as a theoretical framework to develop a model that could be used by municipal supervisors to create an environment conducive to working. The study comprised 227 non-management, middle managers and senior managers in a municipality. Confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and structural equation modelling (SEM) were used to analyze the data. There was a low negative correlation between supervisory support and job satisfaction. It was also found that positive emotions mediated the relationship between supervisory support, participation and job satisfaction.

Keywords: autonomy, job satisfaction, positive emotions, participation, supervisory support, work overload.
