  • Motives matter: A diary study on the relationship between job stressors
           and exercise after work.
    • Abstract: This article examines the relationship between the experience of job stressors and engagement in physical exercise after work in employees’ daily lives. We examine exercise motives as moderators in this relationship and demonstrate that time spent on exercising improves day-specific positive affective states. We conducted a daily survey study over 5 consecutive working days with 120 employees. Multilevel modeling showed that employees with strong exercise motives (i.e., social recognition, appearance, strength and endurance) were able to initiate exercise behavior after stressful days at work. As predicted, exercise after work was positively related to positive activated affect and serenity at bedtime. Drawing on the ego-depletion model, our study contributes to the explanation of previous inconsistent findings on the relationship between job stressors and physical exercise by demonstrating the importance of individuals’ exercise motives.

  • Improving employee outcomes among an often-neglected occupational group in
           healthcare: Stimulating work and job control keep hospital administrators
    • Authors: Rodwell; John J.; Fernando, Julian W.
      Abstract: This study aimed to expand the demand-control-support (DCS) model to include justice perceptions and test the utility of this expanded model. The study examined the effects of the DCS model and multiple types of organizational justice variables (i.e., procedural, distributive, interpersonal, and informational) on indicators of psychological and organizational well-being (i.e., organizational commitment, job satisfaction, psychological distress), specifically among hospital administrators. Questionnaires were completed by 189 administrators working in a medium-sized Australian hospital facility. The utility of expanding the DCS to include justice perceptions was supported by several independent effects of justice; however, the pattern of results differed markedly between the 3 outcomes examined. The main finding is that there is a U-shaped relationship between job demand and job satisfaction, particularly for hospital administrators who have a high level of support from family and friends, whereby increasing job demands for hospital administrators appears beneficial up to an optimal level. That is, optimally stimulating work that is not overwhelmingly demanding keeps hospital administrators satisfied. The results of this study also highlight the benefit of adding organizational justice to job stress models such as the DCS, and emphasize the importance of testing curvilinear and interaction effects when testing models of job stress. The results indicate that managers of hospital administrators should provide adequate demands that are challenging, yet not overwhelming, to maintain their job satisfaction. Additionally, hospital administrators should be encouraged to develop their social networks outside work and to seek their support when needed.

  • The effects of recovery-related self-efficacy on occupational health among
           Korean workers.
    • Authors: Park; Hyung In; Lee, Hyejeen
      Abstract: Given the growing need to illuminate the mechanisms of recovery from job stress, we examined the effects of recovery-related self-efficacy (RSE) on occupational health in Korean employees. The RSE scale was translated into Korean with a committee approach and back-translated to check content consistency. Then, 127 full-time workers from an online survey pool participated in a 2-wave panel study (i.e., Thursday and the following Monday). RSE was distinguished from general self-efficacy. Moreover, Thursday RSE predicted weekend relaxation, mastery, and control experiences measured on Monday after controlling for job demands, person–job fit, skill discretion, decision authority, and general self-efficacy. The interaction between decision authority and RSE explained Monday cynicism in that high RSE strengthened the negative relationship between decision authority and cynicism. The beneficial effects of RSE would facilitate research on job stress recovery among Korean workers. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2015 APA, all rights reserved)

  • A challenge or a hindrance? Understanding the effects of stressors and
           thriving on life satisfaction.
    • Authors: Flinchbaugh; Carol; Luth, Matthew T.; Li, Pingshu
      Abstract: In this research, we develop a theoretical model that links a 2-dimensional model of stressors to individual thriving, resilience, and life satisfaction to examine the possibility that some stressors may actually be beneficial. We test this model across a 10-week period with 189 university students. Our findings indicate that while hindrance stressors diminish appraisals of life satisfaction, challenge stressors promote life satisfaction. Additionally, we find that thriving mediates the relationships between stressors and life satisfaction. A further moderated mediation examination demonstrates how resilience influences thriving as an intervening mechanism by buffering the negative indirect effects in the hindrance stressor–life satisfaction relationship. Our results provide initial support for understanding the psychological mechanisms that explain the differential relationships between stressors and life satisfaction. Although stressful experiences can never be fully avoided, our results provide some hope that resilient individuals can still thrive in stressful environments that promote personal challenges and achievement.
