An integrative model of the job involvement process (Chusmir, 1982) was tested using a sample of male (N=90) and female (N=127) high school teachers in Singapore. Results of the ANOVA indicate significant mean difference in job involvement, work role salience, and internality between men and women. Results of the hierarchical multiple regression indicate that the model accounted for 44% (R2) and 56% (R2) of the explained variance in job involvement for women and men, respectively. For both samples, the personal-psychological class of antecedents made the highest contribution, followed by job circumstances. Three significant predictors were similar for men and women (work role salience, need for achievement, and job satisfaction), while work challenge and household coping mechanisms were significant for men and organizational support was significant for women.
