Job Satisfaction, Organizational Commitment, and Contextual Performance: Examining Effects of Work Status and Emotional Intelligence among Private Club Staff Members


This study explored the effects of work status (part-time vs full-time) and emotional intelligence (high EI- vs low EI-groups) on job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and contextual performance, using a sample of private club staff members (N = 136). Multivariate analysis of covariance (MANOVA) showed that there were no statistically significant differences between part-time and full-time staff members with regard to job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and contextual performance. On the other hand, multivariate effects for emotional intelligence and work status × emotional intelligence interaction were statistically significant, respectively. Practical implications for the private club industry are also provided in terms of hiring and training procedures.
