Abstract

Recent studies on the relationship between job stress and job satisfaction have attracted significant attentions from researchers. The literatures on organizational stress, work related stress consists of two important dimensions: physiology and psychology. The ability of employees to appropriately handle stress in performing job may have a significant impact on individual outcomes, especially job satisfaction. Although the relationship is important, the role of work related stress as an important determinant has been given less attention in organizational stress research literature. Thus, this study was done to measure the association between work related stress and job satisfaction using self-report questionnaires collected from Malaysian peacekeeping personnel at a conflicting Middle Eastern country. The outcomes of testing hypothesis using SmartPLS path model analysis highlighted four important findings: first, physiological stress was significantly associated with job satisfaction. Second, psychological stress was significantly associated with job satisfaction. The finding confirms that work related stress does act as an important determinant of job satisfaction in the organizational sample. Further, discussion, implications and conclusion are elaborated.
