Do managerial support perceptions influence employee wellbeing in high performance workplaces?

International Consortium for Research in Employment & Work (iCREW) Centre for Global Business, Monash Business School invites you to this seminar presented by Keith Whitfield, Cardiff University.

Using matched employer-employee data from the United Kingdom (UK) Workplace Employment Relations Survey (WERS) 2011, this seminar will examine the associations between high-performance HR (HP-HR) practices, perceived job demands, managerial support and employees’ health-related well-being.

Building on theory that challenges the assumption of beneficial effects of HP-HR practices for both organisations and employees, this seminar will explore whether such practices typically lead to heightened perceptions of work demands and work-related anxiety-depression amongst employees.

The seminar will also help attendees understand that such negative consequences can be modified by creating a conducive work environment which fosters managerial support.

Drawing on the Job-Demands Resources (JD-R) model, it will examine estimated moderated-mediation relationships, in a multi-level setting, relating the interaction of job demands and managerial support to perceived levels of health-related well-being in individuals.

The findings suggest that positive relationships between employees and their line managers significantly lowers the detrimental effects of job demands on perceived work-related anxiety-depression, improving individuals’ health-related wellbeing at work.
