The paper describes the study design, research questions and methods of a large, international intervention project aimed at improving employee mental health and well-being in SMEs and public organisations. The study is innovative in multiple ways. First, it goes beyond the current debate on whether individual- or organisational-level interventions are most effective in improving employee health and well-being and tests the cumulative effects of multilevel interventions, that is, interventions a...

In addition, the moderator role of political skill in strengthening the relationship between career planning and job-seeking behavior was explored.

The purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship between general self-efficacy (GSE), job search self-efficacy (JSSE), extraversion and job search success within a sample of new entrants in the labour market. It is hypothesised that JSSE acts as a mediator between GSE and job search success. Evaluation of the hireability – made by expert interviewers – of new entrants involved in a job interview simulation is proposed as a job search success criterion. Moreover, the moderating role of ex...

The survey involved 1501 Italian employees over age 50, working for a major retailer of the big distribution. In line with Social Exchange theory, the result...

AbstractBecause the working population age is increasing, organizations are struggling to find ways to maintain employees’ desire and interest in staying on at work. Accordingly, the aim of this study is to enhance knowledge concerning the role played by personal resources (i.e. work ability) and psychosocial aspects (i.e. older workers stereotypes) in influencing desired retirement age and work engagement in older workers. Data was collected twice, using questionnaires on a sample of 565 older ...

Results showed a good level of validity and reliability of the instrument and suggested that communication, si...
