Abstract

A re-conceptualization of job characteristics is crucial due to the inconsistencies in the measures of this construct. Although many studies have conceptualized job characteristics as multidimensional construct, researchers have thus far provide inconclusive agreement on what factors should be included in measuring job characteristics. This study attempts to examine the psychometric properties of the job characteristics constructs by integrating the five subscales- skill variety, task identity, task significance, autonomy, and feedback. A priori proposition was made that the job characteristics measurement could be explained by five factors. SPSS version 12 and AMOS 4 were used to analyze the data. Findings supported the hypothesis that job characteristics can be measured by the aforementioned five factors. Findings also showed acceptable internal consistency reliability for the overall and the five specific subscales of the job characteristics factor.
