Abstract : Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris
Kajian ini adalah untuk membentuk model pengukuran pengekalan kerjaya bagi jurutera awam  wanita   yang  telah  berkeluarga.  Kajian  ini  menggunakan  Model  Kerjaya Kaleidoskop, Teori Dua Faktor  Herzberg, dan Model Pengekalan Pekerja sebagai panduan. Reka bentuk kajian adalah menggunakan  pembangunan model pengukuran. Teknik awal yang digunakan dalam pembangunan instrumen kajian ini  adalah teknik Delphi yang telah diubahsuai.  Seramai tujuh orang pakar telah dilantik berdasarkan  kepakaran dan pengalaman dalam bidang yang dikaji. Pakar-pakar tersebut juga telah mengesahkan  lapan sub konstruk bagi dua konstruk utama iaitu keseimbangan hidup dan kepuasan kerjaya dalam  pengekalan kerjaya bagi jurutera awam wanita. Persampelan rawak berstrata telah digunakan dalam  kajian ini.  Instrumen baharu telah dibangunkan dengan lapan sub konstruk dan 68 item serta  diedarkan kepada responden dalam kalangan jurutara awam wanita yang telah berkeluarga untuk melihat  faktor yang menyumbangkan para jurutera awan ini untuk terus kekal bekerja dalam tempoh panjang.  Data empirikal yang dipungut dianalisis dengan statistic infrens iaitu PLS-SEM untuk membentuk  model pengukuran. Rumusan daripada pengesahan pakar Delphi menunjukkan konstruk keseimbangan hidup  mempunyai empat sub konstrak penting iaitu kerjaya fleksibel (M= 4.89; SP= 0.90; β= 0.90),  penjagaan anak (M= 4.06; SP= 1.27; β= 0.86), cuti (M= 4.78; SP= 0.82; β= 0.66), dan sokongan sosial (M= 4.45; SP= 0.77; β= 0.60). Manakala bagi konstruk kepuasan kerjaya pula turut  mempunyai empat sub konstruk penting iaitu, mentor (M= 4.68; SP= 0.95; β= 0.61), hubungan rakan  sekerja (M= 4.88; SP= 0.93; β= 0.56), kesamarataan jantina (M= 4.65; SP= 1.00; β= 0.55), dan gaji (M= 4.60; SP= 0.90; β= 0.43). Pusingan ketiga pembangunan model  pengukuran menunjukkan bahawa hanya 62 item daripada 68 item bagi kedua-dua konstruk keseimbangan  hidup (β= 0.97; p= 0.00
