In this study, we aimemed at testing the main hypothesis of the Job Denands-Resourses model (JD-R)in a sample of employee (n. 205, mainly healthcare workers) of a long-term care institution located in Northern Italy. Hierarchical linear regression analyses show that almost all job demands considered were significantly associated with higher general psycho-physical exhaustion (β ranging from 0.14 to 0.29), whereas more unfavourable scores in all job resources were associated with lower work engagement (β from -o.27 to -.51).

Abstract

In this study, we aimemed at testing the main hypothesis of the Job Denands-Resourses model (JD-R)in a sample of employee (n. 205, mainly healthcare workers) of a long-term care institution located in Northern Italy. Hierarchical linear regression analyses show that almost all job demands considered were significantly associated with higher general psycho-physical exhaustion (β ranging from 0.14 to 0.29), whereas more unfavourable scores in all job resources were associated with lower work engagement (β from -o.27 to -.51). However, also significant cross-over associations were observed, mainly between job resources and exhaustion, with effect sizes comparable with those found for the relationships between job demands and exhaustion. Hence, our study only partially support the JD-R model. Implications of results for work-related stress management are finally discussed.
