Investigates the nature of role stressors and its impact on job tension in predicting outcome constructs. The research examines the relationship that exists between the three organizational cultures and the role stressors within a business environment. The best fit model is statistically created and tested by applying a structural equation model. The results indicate that a constructive culture will significantly reduce role stressors, thereby: decreasing job tension and increasing job satisfaction, job performance, and job commitment. The corporate culture’s taproot is the organization’s beliefs and philosophy in how it conducts business. Beliefs and practices that become embedded in a company’s culture can originate from a number of sources. The beliefs, vision, objectives, and business approaches and practices supporting a company’s strategy may be compatible with its culture or possibly not. When they are, the culture becomes a valuable ally in strategy implementation and execution. When this is not accomplished, a company finds it difficult to implement the strategy successfully.
