||This study tested three sets of hypotheses relating psychological well-being to belief in control. A sample of 221 academic and support staff at a British university were administered a questionnaire that measured stressors, psychological well-being, work-related locus of control and information-seeking preferences. Hypotheses relating to the stress-moderating effects of a belief in control and information seeking were not supported by the data. However, the results did support a main effects model of locus control, suggesting that psychological well-being in the workplace may be increased by providing control, which in turn should increase the employees' belief in control.
