Title Job stress and depressive symptoms among Korean employees: The effects of culture on work
Bibliographic information Feb. 2009, Vol.82, No.3, p.397-405. 43 ref.
Abstract This study was conducted to investigate the association between depressive symptoms and job stress among Korean employees in small and medium-sized enterprises, and examined which components of stress are involved in the risk for depression. Data were collected from a work-stress survey of 3013 full-time employees in a Korean metropolitan area. An increased risk of depressive symptoms was found for job insecurity, occupational climate, job demands, inadequate social support, lack of rewards and organizational injustice.
