Abstract

This study investigates the direct and moderating effects of organizational commitment and Chinese work values on the stress-well-being relationship. A self-administered questionnaire survey collected data from 386 (197 malts, 179 females, 10 unidentified) and 306 (127 males, 179 females) employees in Hong Kong and Beijing respectively. In general, employees who perceived higher levels of stress reported worse work well-being (job satisfaction, mental and physical well-being). Furthermore, employees who scored high in organizational commitment and Chinese work values reported higher job satisfaction. A series of hierarchical regressions while controlling for age, tenure, and job level, revealed that only Chinese work values were significant moderator of some of the stress-well-being relationship for both samples. For the Beijing sample, Chinese work values were significant moderator of the stress-job satisfaction relationship, whereas organizational commitment was found to be a significant moderator of the stress-mental well-being relationship. For the Hong Kong sample, Chinese work values were found to be significant moderator of the relationship between total stress and physical well-being.

本文調查組織承諾與中國工作價值觀在工作壓力與工作幸福感關係的直接與調節效應。研究採用自行填寫問卷方法,分別向386位(197男、179女、10位沒填寫性別)香港員工與306位(127男、179女)北京員工調查。整體來說,感受到較高工作壓力的員工的工作幸福感較差(包括工作滿意與身心健康程度)。此外,員工若具較高組織承諾與中國工作價值觀,則工作滿意程度也較高。一系列的hierarchical回歸分析,對年齡、年資與職位加以控制,發現中國價值觀是兩地工作壓力與幸福感關係的調節元素。中國工作價值觀對北京對象而言是工作壓力與工作滿意關係的調節因素,而組織承諾是工作壓力與身體健康關係的調節因素。
