Abstract

The objective of this paper is to identify the relationship between leadership style, workplace environment, rewards, job stressors (independent variables) and job stress (dependent variable) among the teaching staffs at MARA Junior Science College Sabah. A total of 120 questionnaires were distributed which covering all teaching staffs and the response rate was at 89% or 107 respondents from both MARA JSC Tawau and Kota Kinabalu in Sabah participated in this research. The researcher adopts Reliability Analysis, Factor Analysis, Descriptive Statistic, Correlation and Multi Regressions Analysis to analyze the data collected. The findings showed that there is a significant relationship between workplace environment and job stress as expected, whereby p <0.05 or p = 0.011, β = 0.251. The beta value, β = 0.251 indicates that when one standard unit of Workplace Environment factor increased, it can be assumed that job stress among the teaching staffs in MRSM will be increased by 0.251 standard unit. It also shows that the more uncondusive the workplace environment, it tends more to stress in their job. However the leadership style, rewards and job stressors are found not to be significantly related to job stress among the teaching staffs from both colleges.
