Abstract

The purpose of the study was to test a structural model which involves training variables and work environment variables in the United Arab Emirates and Jordan. Two instruments were used to collect data from people with a disability (n = 113) about their views of the training program and work environment. The Structural Equation Model (SEM) analysis revealed the following results: the factor representing psychological support and suitability of training environment influenced positively the disabled workers' view of their work; the factor representing job selection, trainers, and efficacy of program had a negative effect on the view of the people with disability on their work environment; while job selection had a direct negative effect on how others perceive the disabled person.
