Job Stress and Well-Being: An Examination from the View of Person-Environment Fit
Digital Object Identifier (DOI)
The current study investigated the impact of job stressors on well‐being from the perspective of person‐environment fit. Based upon a 288‐case sample from six organizations, we found that the actual and preferred career advancement themselves and their second‐order (curvilinear) combinations jointly predicted job satisfaction, mental well‐being, and turnover intention. Also, the actual and preferred quality of relationships at work and their second‐order (curvilinear) combinations jointly predicted job satisfaction, mental and physical well‐being, and turnover intention. Some possible mechanisms underlying the stressor‐outcome relationship and their implications are discussed.
