Summary

As part of a longitudinal study of first-term enlisted naval personnel, perceptions of job scope (the complexity and challenge of a job), were investigated to predict criteria of satisfaction, enlisted performance ratings, and turnover. Correlations between job scope (Job Diagnostic Survey scores) and behavior as moderated by a variety of individual difference characteristics were also examined, including internal-external locus of control, growth need strength, and needs for achievement. The overall results of the study were consistent with previous research on job design in that the interaction between the individual and the job has been found to be an important determinant of employee work outcomes of satisfaction and turnover. Relationships between job characteristics and performance were not significant. In general, results indicated that individuals who have high needs for achievement, for example, react less favorably to jobs low on variety, autonomy, task identity, feedback, and task significance, and are more likely to separate from the Navy than individuals who do not have high achievement needs.
