About this Item

Paperback. 116 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.8in. x 0.5in.Social support from the work environment has been considered as one of the critical resources that can reduce the negative effect of stressors, but the mechanism that explains the effect of social support on stress remains unanswered. The purpose of this study is therefore to explain the effect of social support, more specifically coworker support, on an individuals stress by introducing job characteristics as mediators.
