A sociological analysis of the impact of the process of pluralization of ownership on employment is presented in the article in the form of a comparative analysis, conducted on the basis of three levels of sociological research. The studies were conducted in Tyumen region in 2006, 2009, 2013. The author analyzed the ratio of public and private sectors of the economy when choosing real and desired places of work, the degree of satisfaction with their place of work, depending on the form of ownership, preferences when changing jobs. The dynamics of current changes is highlighted in the article. The results of the research showed that a significant portion of the population is employed in enterprises having the forms of ownership, which are different from the preferences of the population. The highest percentage of employees desires to work for state owned or private companies. For seven years, the degree of satisfaction of the population with their place of work, depending on the form of ownership has changed. The degree of satisfaction decreased in those who work for personally owned enterprises. Today, a large proportion of people satisfied with the place of work, are employed by state and municipal enterprises. The year of 2013, compared to the years of 2006 and 2009, registered a decline in the degree of satisfaction of the population with the place of their employment for the companies of all forms of ownership, except for the self-employed ones and those working in joint-stock companies without state participation. Most often the workers want to change the enterprise they work for for the state or municipal ones. The author notes that the economic system needs to develop a strategy for improving the pluralism of the forms of ownership.
