Abstract:

This thesis reviews the literature in the areas of job satisfaction, job stress, and self-rated job performance. Controversy has raged over the relationship between satisfaction and work outcomes--particularly job performance. This research attempts to develop a model of some of the more prominent variables that effect worker perceived productivity. The model hypothesizes that task characteristics effect intrinsic job satisfaction, task environment factors effect extrinsic job satisfaction, job satisfaction effects job stress, and job stress effects self-perceived productivity. Research data was collected at a large Department of Defense medical center, verified for reliability, and tested for correlation of the variables via the Pearson correlation and multiple regression statistical techniques. The research results indicated that all the model relationships were as hypothesized. Author
