Onur Emre, Meral Elci

Abstract


The purpose of the study is to check if the costs of commuting reduces job satisfaction and lead to withdrawal. A cross-sectional design is implemented by electronic surveys through a snowball sampling (N=210) . Regression analysis and SPSS extension called PROCESS is used. Study could not generate enough statistical power to point out a relationship between the time spent during the commute and withdrawal behaviour, between the money spent during the commute and withdrawal behaviuor, between time spent during the commute and job satisfaction. The hypothesized interaction of job satisfaction both on the relationship between the time spent during the commute and withdrawal, and the money spent during the commute and withdrawal behaviour are not supported. The results concluded that monetary costs of commuting reduces job satisfaction, job satisfaction mediates the relationship between the time spent during the commute and withdrawal behaviour. Job satisfaction also found to mediate the relationship between  monetary costs of commuting and withdrawal behaviour.
