The Moderating Roles of Core Job Characteristics on The Relationship Between Personality Traits and Organizational Commitment
The purpose of this study is to determine the moderating roles of core job characteristics on the relationship between personality traits and organizational commitment. In order to minimize the issues of employees’ organizational commitment, this study was conducted to examine the lack of understanding in job commitment, employees’ individual traits and job characteristics that led to major challenges in organizational behavior. This research was conducted at three government linked companies located in Shah Alam, Malaysia. It was found that none of the dimensions of job characteristics moderate the relationship between personality traits and organizational commitment. Recommendations for organizations include allowing employees to redesign their work processes in ways that allow them to maximize the use of their skills and abilities. It is also recommended that civil servants especially be given other responsibilities and non-repetitive type of work.
