JOB FRUSTRATION AMONG KUWAITIS AND EXPATRIATES An Empirical Investigation of the Effect of Job Stress and Personal Characteristics

Auther : Dr. Adam Ghazi Al-Otaibi

 

          This study has twofold aims.  First, it investigates the effect that both job stress and personal characteristics have on job frustration.  Second, the detected effect is determined with reference to both Kuwaitis and expatriates working in the government sector in Kuwait.

           The subjects of the analysis were 796 employees  (581 Kuwaitis, 215 expatriates) drawn from six different government organizations.

         The main findings of the investigation suggest that job frustration had:

a)     positive correlation with both job stress and marital status and

b)    negative correlation with both age and tenure.

      Furthermore, findings suggest that Kuwaiti employees experienced higher job frustration as well as higher job stress when contrasted with their expatriate counterparts.  Statistical figures indicate that job stress and age explain as much as 50%, 56% of differences in job frustration among Kuwaitis and expatriates respectively.  Various findings accomplished by means of the present investigation were discussed with reference to previous research and findings in the field.
