Title Gender differences on coping with job stress and organizational outcomes
Bibliographic information Oct.-Dec. 1998, Vol.12, No.4, p.351-361. Illus. 30 ref.
Abstract The potential differing effects of coping on work-related outcomes for men and women were investigated. Participants were recruited from night classes in psychology and business and asked to complete a 113-item questionnaire. 181 fully completed questionnaires (56 men and 125 women) were included in the analyses. All participants were working full time (>35 hours per week). The results indicated that men and women differed on few coping responses. However, multiple regression analyses did suggest different trends on the effectiveness of coping for men and women. These results are discussed in terms of men and women's differing responses to stress in the workplace. Topics: human behaviour; labour turnover; mental health; neuropsychic stress; physical training; psychology of absenteeism; psychology of work organization; questionnaire survey; sex-linked differences; statistical evaluation; work organization.
