dc.description.abstract Many researchers have examined the effect of various work -related factors on transfer of learning . However , there has been little or no focus on the effect of key workplace factors such as job stress and job satisfaction on transfer of learning . The current study examines the relationship among job stress , job satisfaction , motivation to transfer and transfer of learning based on the perceptions of selected Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA ) outreach trainers who underwent training conducted by the Texas Engineering Extension , Texas . A 24 -item questionnaire was utilized to collect data . The questionnaire was sent electronically to all outreach trainers who underwent the OSHA General Industry Course 501 during 2005 , and the first six months of 2006 . The sample included 418 respondents representing a population of 1234 outreach trainers . Descriptive statistics , Cronbach ?s alpha estimates for reliability , factor analysis , correlation analysis , regression analysis , path analysis , and Sobel tests were the analysis methods used in the study . The results from the analysis suggest that job stress and its related dimensions , time stress , and anxiety had an indirect correlation with transfer of learning through job satisfaction and motivation to transfer . Further , it was found that job stress , time stress , and anxiety predicted job satisfaction ; time stress predicted anxiety ; job satisfaction predicted motivation to transfer ; and motivation to transfer predicted transfer of learning . Finally , path analysis results and mediation tests showed that : (1 ) the relationship between job stress and transfer was mediated by job satisfaction and motivation to transfer , (2 ) the relationship between time stress and transfer was mediated by job satisfaction and motivation to transfer , (3 ) the relationship between anxiety and transfer was mediated by job satisfaction and motivation to transfer , and finally (4 ) the relationship between time stress and transfer was mediated by anxiety , job satisfaction , and motivation to transfer . en_US
