The main objective of this study was to investigate reciprocal effects between personal resources, job/study resources, engagement, and mental health. Building on the Conservation of Resources Theory and the JD-R model, we explored whether positive cycles evolve between all study variables over time. In two studies we surveyed 326 psychotherapists...

Racial and ethnic minority employees constitute a significant proportion of the U.S. workforce. The literature on demographic similarity in the workplace suggests that the proportion of co‐workers who share the same racial/ethnic background (racial/ethnic similarity) can influence job attitudes and employee well‐being and that the reactions to raci...

Full-text available
Work and organizational psychology (WOP) research has to date mostly focused on people privileged to have the choice between several attractive job options and less on people who are restricted in their job choice (e.g., due to their qualification or personal contingencies) and have to choose from fewer and often less‐than‐optimal jobs. Often, the...

Work teams are becoming increasingly heterogeneous with respect to their team members’ ethnic backgrounds. Two lines of research examine ethnic diversity in work teams: The compositional approach views team-level ethnic heterogeneity as a team characteristic, and relational demography views individual-level ethnic dissimilarity as an individual mem...

When two or more individuals with different values, interests, and experiences work together, interpersonal conflicts are inevitable. Conflicts, in turn, can hinder or delay successful task completion. However, certain types of conflicts may also have beneficial effects. The literature differentiates between task conflicts (TCs) and relationship co...

The health of migrants is important for both sending and receiving societies. However, the sole focus on the post-migration period in the current literature limits our understanding of the health impacts of migration. This chapter proposes that migrant health research include the pre-migration phase so that migration can be explored from a life cou...

Overqualification is a form of person-job misfit that is common among those who reside in a foreign country.

Lower socioeconomic status (SES) has been consistently associated with poor health. Social relationships may play a role in this association. People of lower SES tend to be less socially integrated and to be less satisfied with the social support that is available to them. However, the magnitude and direction of these associations vary across the s...

State work engagement (SWE), a multidimensional construct of work-related well-being, was originally conceptualized as a trait, but diary studies have revealed substantial within-person fluctuations. Given that SWE is conceptualized as a work-related affective-motivational construct, the question arises as to whether SWE can be differentiated from...

Project
Work is not often examined as a social determinant of health, especially in the United States. Population-based cohort studies and surveys typically have limited data on work, but some data are available. Using various sources of large population- or community-based data, we investigate the association between job characteristics and health.
Project
Migration is a dynamic life-transition process that starts well before arrival in the receiving country and continues as adjustments and adaptation take place over time. Yet, most epidemiologic studies of migration and health investigate only the post-migration period. Through empirical studies and conceptual papers, we argue that the migration-health relationship, and the importance of work within the relationship, need to be investigated within a global context and from migrants’ perspective.
Project
The COVID crisis forces precariously employed people in hospitals (e.g. cleaners) to choose between being employed and protecting their health. In this project, we conduct qualitative interviews to understand how precariously employed people perceive this employment-health dilemma and how this dilemma affects their well-being and mental health. Moreover, we explore the roles of gender, ethnic background, and their intersection.
