Determining the relationship between job stability and work orientation of ex-offenders
Previous research points to the need to find a predictor of ex-offender employment success. Although previous research has shown that a person's score on a work orientation questionnaire can be useful in predicting job performance, no research has been done to determine the usefulness of a work orientation questionnaire in predicting the job stability of an ex-offender. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to examine the differences of work orientation scores between ex-offenders who have stable employment and those who do not. The hypothesis is that exoffenders who have a higher score on measurements of work orientation will have had a longer period of time in which they have worked for one employer than the ex-offenders who have a lower score on work orientation measures. Subjects consisted of 107 participants in the Orange County Work Release Program. The Multiple Regression Correlation indicated that work orientation was related to the job stability of ex-offenders.
