Abstract

This study investigated the direct and moderating effect of general self‐efficacy on the relationship between stressors and well‐being in Chinese societies. Survey data were collected from 386 and 306 employees in Hong Kong and Beijing, respectively. The results consistently showed that general self‐efficacy was positively related to mental well‐being and physical well‐being. A series of hierarchical regressions revealed that general self‐efficacy moderated the relationship between stressors and mental well‐being, yet did not moderate the relationship between stressors and physical well‐being. Results verified that general self‐efficacy plays an important role in employees’ well‐being in the collectivist society of China.
