Abstract

The Administrative and Diplomatic Scheme promotes the use of job rotation whereby ADOs are frequently transferred from one federal government departments/agencies to another. This practice is based on concepts and theories that linked job rotation to motivation. In this research, the relationship between Job Rotation Practices and Motivation and Job Rotation Practices and Stress as well as the mediating role of Stress on the relationship between Job Rotation Practices and Motivation were investigated. A cross-sectional correlational research using survey method was employed with an adapted questionnaire from Kaymaz (2010), Halkos and Bousinakis (2009) and Minbaeva (2008). The research was participated by 115 ADOs in Sabah who were sampled with simple random sampling method. Results showed a significant positive relationship between Job Rotation Practices and Motivation but a significant negative relationship between Job Rotation Practices and Stress. It was also found that Stress is not a significant mediator of the relationship between Job Rotation Practices and Motivation. Future researches are recommended whereby the two variables: Job Rotation and Motivation to be divided into Sub-components. Other mediating variables on the relationship between Job Rotation and Motivation should also be considered for future research. In addition, the effect of frequency of Job Rotation on motivation should also be explored.
