    • Abstract: Exposure to ostracism has been argued to be a severe social stressor. However, few studies have explicitly investigated its adverse impact on the victim’s interpersonal citizenship behavior (ICB) in a work setting. In a sample of 323 employees in the manufacturing industry in China, the present study tested a moderated mediation model on the effects of workplace ostracism on victims’ ICB with the key objective of exploring the mediation effects of work-to-family conflict (WFC) and the moderating effects of rumination on this relationship. Also, the relationship between employees’ vulnerability and workplace ostracism was tested. The research revealed that the vulnerable groups (i.e., the disabled, immigrants) are more likely than others to experience workplace ostracism. In addition, the research revealed that employees who experience workplace ostracism tend to withhold their ICBs, and WFC mediates the workplace ostracism–ICB relationship. Finally, results indicated that both workplace ostracism’s direct effects on WFC and its indirect effects on ICB via WFC were strengthened among high-rumination employees.

    • Abstract: The goals of this research were to explore emotion-regulation strategies typically used by teachers in their workplace and to operationalize them in a conceptually meaningful and psychometrically sound way. Based on the assumptions of the process model of emotion regulation and a series of three empirical studies (N1 = 25, N2 = 611, N3 = 309), and by implementing the mixed-method approach, a context-specific scale aimed at measuring five distinct emotion-regulation strategies, namely avoiding situations, active modification strategy, reappraisal, suppression, and tension reduction, was developed. All scales had adequate psychometric characteristics and were meaningfully related to the external variables examined. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

    • Abstract: Psychosocial risk assessments are frequently applied with an a priori classification of favorable and unfavorable working conditions. However, such classifications contradict transactional stress theory and the results of research that found the effects of work stressors on wellbeing to be dependent on boundary conditions. The challenge/hindrance framework assumes that the effects of stressors on wellbeing depend on their individual appraisal as either challenge (stressors associated with personal gain) or hindrance (stressors associated with constraints). We took a heterogeneous sample of 631 employees and, by taking into account their individual appraisals as challenge or hindrance, studied associations between exposure to working conditions covered by a frequently used psychosocial risk assessment and health outcomes. Our findings confirmed substantial variations of appraisal and confirmed that challenge and hindrance evaluations of exposures to working conditions are not mutually exclusive. Whereas exposure to working conditions was only partly associated with health outcomes, all challenge appraisals were positively related and all hindrance appraisals negatively related with favorable health outcomes. When adjusted for challenge and hindrance appraisal, direct effects on health outcomes were not significant for most of the considered working conditions. Health effects of working conditions were partly mediated by challenge/hindrance appraisals, and appraisal explained more variance in health outcomes than information about exposure to these conditions. Nevertheless, negative health effects were observed for some working conditions (time pressure, qualitative demands, responsibility, and interruptions), even when controlled for employees’ evaluations. We conclude that measures of challenge/hindrance appraisals should be included in occupational risk assessments. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)

    • Abstract: The present study examined the moderating influences of chronic prevention focus and affective organizational commitment on the relationship between perceived job insecurity and emotional exhaustion through a survey on a sample of 312 employees of a private health institution on the west coast of Turkey. We hypothesized that chronic prevention focus would strengthen, whereas affective organizational commitment would weaken the positive association between job insecurity and emotional exhaustion. We further predicted that affective organizational commitment would exert its buffering effect primarily among employees with a high chronic prevention focus, thus reducing the harmful effect of chronic prevention focus. We found that job insecurity was positively associated with emotional exhaustion only among employees with a high chronic prevention focus. There was no moderation effect by affective organizational commitment in the association between job insecurity and emotional exhaustion. On the other hand, a significant 3-way interaction effect showed that affective organizational commitment had differential influences on the job insecurity and emotional exhaustion link depending on chronic prevention focus. Consistent with our expectations, among employees with high chronic prevention focus, affective organizational commitment eliminated the positive association between job insecurity and emotional exhaustion. However, unexpectedly affective organizational commitment strengthened the positive association between job insecurity and emotional exhaustion among employees with low chronic prevention focus. The implications of the present findings are discussed. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2017 APA, all rights reserved)
