    ABSTRACT: Examined the relationships between role conflict, role ambiguity, work–family conflict, emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction and propensity to leave, in a sales environment. Results of surveys completed by 104 salespeople employed by a regional media firm indicated that: 1) role conflict was significantly related to emotional exhaustion; 2) work–family conflict was significantly related to emotional exhaustion and job satisfaction; and 3) emotional exhaustion and job satisfaction were related to salesperson propensity to leave. These results support other research indicating the conflict between the work and home domains is highly related to important workplace attitudes and perceptions and suggests that work–family conflict should be included in models examining employee response to the effects of stress.

    ABSTRACT: This study examines the relationship of financial stress to personal and work stress and its negative impact on personal and work satisfaction. A survey of 187 professional mental health staff working in behavioral hospitals determined that financial stress scores from personal and work areas explained 50% of the variance in their overall stress. Financial stress scores also explained 30% of the negative variance in personal and work satisfaction. This study indicates as much as 50% of overall stress could be reduced by improved financial management, thus contributing significantly to their personal and work satisfaction which counter-balances stress which lowers productivity.
