Role Stress, Interrole Conflict, and Job Satisfaction among University Employees: The Creation and Test of a Model
Love, Keisha M.; Tatman, Anthony W.; Chapman, Benjamin P.
Journal of Employment Counseling, v47 n1 p30-37 Mar 2010
Many universities have experienced financial hardships during the recent economic downturn. To save money, several have resorted to laying off employees, which has often resulted in increased work and stress for the remaining employees. Such an increase has the potential to adversely affect employees' sense of job satisfaction. This study created and tested the fit of a conceptual model containing role stress and interrole conflict as a way to account for employees' job satisfaction. The model demonstrated an acceptable fit to the data and contained several significant paths. Implications of the results, study limitations, and future directions for research are discussed. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
