Leadership plays an important role in employee well-being. In light of a growing research interest in leaders’ resources as determinants of healthy leadership, it is not yet clear how leaders’ be-havior regarding their own health (self-care) may trickle down to employees. Drawing on Con-servation of Resources Theory and the model of Health-Oriented...
Article
Full-text available
It is widely acknowledged that leadership is crucial for follower health. Under stress, positive leader behaviors such as transformational leadership may decrease and the risk of negative behaviors such as abusive leadership may increase. Followers experience these discrepancies in leadership between routine and stressful periods as inconsistent. W...

By disrupting routines at work, the Covid-19 pandemic may have undermined the extent and effectiveness of health-oriented leadership (HoL) in terms of staff-care and self-care. In a survey with two measurement points in the spring of 2020 (Nt1=264; Nt2=123), we examined whether the stronger the crisis the lower HoL is, while becoming more effective...

Zusammenfassung Angesichts der aktuellen Covid-19 Pandemie stellt sich nochmal dringlicher die Frage, was Unternehmen im Sinne der Prävention gerade auch in Krisenzeiten leisten können. Bereits seit einiger Zeit wird die Bedeutung der direkten Führungskräfte als wichtige Ressource für Prävention und Gesundheitsförderung vor Ort erkannt. Entsprechen...
Article
Full-text available
Previous studies underline positive effects of health-oriented leadership for follower well-being. However, it is not clear whether and to what extent situational and personal factors influence health-oriented leadership behavior towards employees (i.e., staff care). We examine the effect of crises and the moderating role of strain for the relation...
Article
Studies found pre–post effects of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) on heart rate variability (HRV). However, it is unclear how HRV develops from session to session. Individuals may further differ not only randomly but systematically in their HRV trajectories. Drawing upon conservation of resources theory (COR theory), this study (a) investiga...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research has supported the positive effects of health‐oriented leadership (HoL) on follower health. However, effectiveness in times of crisis is unknown. This study examines whether crises weaken or strengthen the positive relationships of health‐oriented leadership with follower strain and performance. Effectiveness was tested for (1) fol...
Article
Full-text available
The aim of this paper is to deepen our understanding of the relationships between high-performance work practices (HPWPs) and employee well-being. In particular, we integrate three employee well-being types, proposing that HPWPs positively affect employee health (i.e. health status, sickness absence, and sleep quality), mediated by job satisfaction...
Article
Despite the rise of in-work poverty across Europe, the psychological consequences of individual economic vulnerability are still rather unknown. Drawing on both objective and subjective conceptualizations of economic vulnerability, we investigate the effects of individual low labour income and perceived financial strain on mental well-being. We arg...
Article
Young workers are often temporarily employed and thus likely to experience job insecurity. This study investigates associations of objective job insecurity (i.e., temporary employment) and subjectively perceived job insecurity with mental health, job satisfaction and life satisfaction among young workers, testing the moderating role of education. T...
Chapter
Job insecurity, the subjectively perceived risk of involuntary job loss, has been widely researched as a stressor and linked to negative individual, organizational and extra-organizational outcomes. After providing a brief state-of-the-art review of research on the antecedents and consequences of job insecurity, as well as theoretical frameworks to...
Article
Full-text available
Health-oriented leadership consists of three dimensions that contribute to employee health: staff care, i.e., health-specific follower-directed leadership, as well as both leaders’ and followers’ self care, i.e., health-specific self-leadership. This study explores profiles of follower self care, leader self care and staff care, and investigates th...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Individual differences in the development of perceived job insecurity among young workers may be influenced by characteristics of the first job (contract type and sector) and individual background (education and previous unemployment), and can have implications for subsequent health and well-being. The aim of this study was to investigate...
Article
Objective: Investigate organizational, intrapersonal (expectations, risk, strain, self-care), and interpersonal (health-oriented leadership) factors as predictors for employees' participation in occupational health promotion (OHP) and the mediating effect of intention. Identifying moderators that strengthen the relationship between intention and p...
Article
Young adults in the transition from education to employment are vulnerable to employment insecurity. We explore trajectories of employment insecurity over six years after leaving education, and investigate their associations with sociodemographic predictors, self-reported health and life satisfaction. Based on a sample of 2752 education leavers fro...
Chapter
The changes in the labour market as a result of an increase in non-standard employment raises the question of how to ensure decent labour standards today. This question cannot be answered by one discipline alone. Instead, finding an answer demands collaboration in an interdisciplinary endeavour to determine labour standards for improved well-being....
Thesis
Young labor market entrants, disproportionately affected by employment flexibilization, are vulnerable to job and employment insecurity. Insecurity during the transition from education to employment can take various forms, such as worrying about job loss, receiving temporary contracts, or struggling to find a job all. Job insecurity (i.e., threats...
Chapter
Jugendliche sind häufig die Leidtragenden wirtschaftlicher Krisen, andererseits ist man beim Übergang ins Erwachsenenalter anfällig für persönliche Krisen. Der Übergang ins Berufsleben ist zunehmend unsicher geworden, Arbeitsplatzunsicherheit als Stressfaktor ist in dieser Lebensphase jedoch wenig erforscht. Ziel dieses Beitrags ist es, Einflussfak...

Interdisciplinary research network at the University of Hamburg and the Helmut-Schmidt-University Hamburg combining human resource management, sociology, psychology, law and (protestant) theology in order to explore the conditions of change in labour standards. On the backdrop of rising employment of women and older persons, increasing extent of "atypical" employment, hence a more diverse workforce as well as digitalisation and globalisation the German reference to the "standard employment" of fulltime, permanent, subject to social insurance and well-paid jobs seems outdated.
