Abstract:This paper proposes a conceptual model of job performance and describes a study that was designed to evaluate the model. The conceptual model specifies directional relations among proposed antecedents of job performance. The model hypothesized that personality traits and occupational interests influenced proficiency in job-related social skills, and thus job performance. Computer assessments of two conflict-resolution and administrative decision-making skills were administered to participants. Printed inventories assessing personality traits and occupational interests were also administered. Behavioral ratings of conflict-resolution and decision-making actions were obtained from supervisors and coworkers. Structural equations modeling was used to assess the fit of the model. The data offered marginal support for the models of job-related social skills, but no support for the global model of job performance. This paper identifies several factors that may have negatively influenced the results, and makes several recommendations for future research.
