There will be an Organisational Psychology Seminar on the 31st of July, with a presentation by Michelle Tucker.  As part of the PhD thesis review process, Michelle will be presenting her progress-to-date on the topic of occupational stress and employee well-being.  Her program of research is supervised by Professor Tian Oei.
Organisational and individual influences in the occupational stress process: Collective efficacy and organisational identification as additional moderators in the Job Demand-Control Model
Working conditions and other environmental stressors have been linked to various detrimental effects on employee well-being and performance. A major objective of research in this area is to identify those factors that mitigate or lessen the negative impact of work stressors.  The theories that serve as the foundation for this presentation include Karasek's Job Demand-Control Model, Social Identity Theory, and Social Cognitive Theory.  Specifically, the interactive effects of individual-level job design variables, such as workload and autonomy, and factors relating to team dynamics (collective efficacy and identification) will be discussed and results from a study of 544 participants nested within 23 organisations will be presented.
