Abstract

This study aims to determine the immediate factors in occupational stress at individual level that impact job performance amongst lecturers holding the post of DS45 at Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS). The objectives of this study were achieved by examining the relationship between job performance (dependent variable) and five factors identified as independent variables which include working condition, resources and communication, workload, work-relationship with the Dean, and work-relationship with colleagues. Results from the online questionnaire collected from 228 respondents were analyzed using the multiple regression analysis. The analysis revealed that 31.1 percent and 45.1 percent of the variance were explained by model 1 and model 2 respectively, with working condition, workload, work-relationship with the Dean, and work-relationship with colleagues (total four factors) significant. Although the relationship between dependent variable and independent variables when regressed together produced an acceptable result, further research should be done in order for this model to be proposed as a general model for developing a framework regarding occupational stress at individual level and job performance among university lecturers. It is hoped that this study has contributed to studies in this field and played its part in paving the way for future studies to identify a more sustainable and replicable model, hence assisting the higher education industry to face the challenge of the 21st century.
