Based on the previous studies of Heskett et al, (1997) and Heinhuis et al. (1998), seven sub-measurements of ISQ and three sub-measurements of employee satisfaction are applied in the study. In addition, employee background as personal characteristics is also examined in the relation to employee satisfaction whilst cultural variables are held constant. This formal and descriptive correlational study analyzes data from questionnaire and interview. The results show that there is no significant correlation between employee background (age, education qualification, and length of employment) and employee satisfaction. On the other hand, there is significant correlation between internal service quality and employee satisfaction. Technology job fit, delivering service value, customer response, and supervisory control system are the most important measurements of ISQ, which influence the employee satisfaction.

Abstract

The main objective of the study is to explore the applicability of the choice experiment method to reveal preferences of visitors. The preferences are related to the attributes of eco-tourism resources in Taman Negara Malaysia. Four alternative sets of combinations of attributes which included types of accommodation, congestion levels, permitted length of stay per permit and entrance fees are given to visitors to choose. The results of the analysis on the probability of choice function reveal that types of accommodation, indicated by differences in room rates, and congestion levels are the two significant factors influencing visitors preferences for the eco-tourism resources. The choice of types of accommodation facilities can be implied to the preferences for quality services and facilities. On the other hand, the congestion level is associated with lower entrance fee and costs of visits.
