Abstract

This study explores the effect of demographic variables, such as age, education, length of service, marital status and salary, on job involvement and examines the relationship between job involvement and job performance in a sample of 300 white-collar Kuwaiti civil service employees. Results suggest that the demographic variables have no effect on job involvement. However, the group exhibiting high job involvement did score higher in job performance, a relationship that accounted for 39% of the total variance in job performance.
