Abstract

The authors explore the nature of commitment, job satisfaction and job characteristics, and the nature of the interrelationships among these variables concerning expatriate employees in Saudi Arabia. An examination of a sample of 504 expatriate employees reveals that these employees are, by and large, indifferent with respect to their perceptions of commitment, job satisfaction, and job characteristics. In addition, the results provide strong support for 1 the influence of job satisfaction on commitment, 2 the influence of job variety on commitment, and 3 the influence of job autonomy, identity, and feedback on job satisfaction.
