Title Stress at work: An evaluation of occupational stressors as reported by a multicultural New Zealand workforce
Bibliographic information Jan.-Mar. 1996, Vol.2, No.1, p.18-25. 34 ref.
Abstract In a questionnaire survey of 5,467 European, Maori, Pacific Islander and Asian employees working for 41 companies in New Zealand, men reported more work stressors than women for all categories of stressors measured, but particularly for job scope. Increased stressors were also found among younger workers due to their relationship with management and among administrative workers (managers) in relation to job pressure. People of European descent reported more work stressors than other ethnic groups. The study highlights areas for stress-reduction interventions.
