A Multi-Group Moderating Effect of Work-Engagement of Job Demands-Strain Relations: The Case of the Saudi Arabia Lecturers

Malek Turki


This study examined the moderating effects of work-engagement levels on the relationship between several factors affecting job strain among university lecturers. 217 lecturers participated in the study, and were drawn from university staff at Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University in Saudi Arabia. A questionnaire survey was used. The results revealed that there exists a relationship between the study variables, and that a high level of work engagement has an effect on the study variables. Based on these results, academicians and decision makers at the university level need to promote a positive learning environment at the university in order to improve job engagement and job outcomes.
