The Relationship Between University Members' Job Satisfaction/Stress and Their Perceived Level of Physical Fitness.
Siggia, Rosanne Marie
This study at Edinboro University (Pennsylvania) examined the relationship between faculty members' perceived level of physical fitness and their job satisfaction and stress levels. A 33-item questionnaire was adapted from existing instruments: the retirement descriptive index; the job descriptive index; and the lifestyle questionnaire. The questionnaire was completed by 50 (of 105) faculty members. The results generally indicated increased job satisfaction and decreased stress when faculty members had a higher level of perceived physical fitness. Other findings indicated that the faculty members generally had a high level of job satisfaction, that most felt their physical condition surpassed that of most of their peers, and that most experienced relatively low levels of job-related stress. The questionnaire is attached. (Contains 82 references and 6 tables.) (DB)
