The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between effort/reward imbalance and work ability in the nursing and call-center sectors. A selfreported questionnaire was completed by 1,113 nurses and 1,106 call-center operators. Among the nurses, after adjustment for several confounders, high effort/reward imbalance was associated with poor/moderate work ability (O.R.=2.4; 95% C.I. 1.7-3.5).

Abstract

The aim of the study is to investigate the relationship between effort/reward imbalance and work ability in the nursing and call-center sectors. A selfreported questionnaire was completed by 1,113 nurses and 1,106 call-center operators. Among the nurses, after adjustment for several confounders, high effort/reward imbalance was associated with poor/moderate work ability (O.R.=2.4; 95% C.I. 1.7-3.5). Considering the subscales, both “High Effort” and “Low Esteem” were associated with poor/moderate work ability. Among call-center operators high effort/reward imbalance was associated with poor/moderate work ability (O.R.=1.9; 95% C.I.=1.3-2.7). Considering the effort/reward imbalance subscales, only “Low Esteem” was significantly associated with poor/moderate work ability.
