A Research on the Relationships among Role Pressure, Personality Traits, and Job Satisfaction-Personnel Employees at National Universities in Taiwan


The national universities in Taiwan are rather distinctive from the aspects of characteristics, for example, the staff including academic and administrative categories which fit with various compliance systems. Furthermore, Taiwan Governments have been attempting to reform the administrative policies on military and public servants, and to revise the labor-related policies. All the changes have casted severe pressure on personnel employees at national universities. This research aimed to explore the effect of role pressure on job satisfaction, and to examine if personality trait acts as a moderator in-between. We targeted the personnel employees at the 45 national universities in Taiwan and used Linear Regression Analysis to conduct the data analysis. This research contributed in twofold: firstly to suggest the personality traits as effective reference at recruiting employees; secondly, pressure adjustment should be included in the training designs.
