Abstract [en]

Purpose: This systematic meta-review uses the job demands-resources (JD-R) model as a starting point for reporting on how various psychosocial factors at work relate to different outcomes. Specifically, the review investigated how job demands and resources associate with job attitudes and behaviours and whether these linkages vary between genders and occupations.

Design/Methodology: This meta-review includes meta-analyses and systematic literature reviews published during the past 10 years. The secondary studies were retrieved from combined searches in different international databases. Search terms were chosen to target a range of psychosocial factors and to retrieve published journal articles, and systematic reports linking such factors to job attitudes and behaviours.

Results: In total, 14 job demands and 7 job resources were identified. These were linked to outcomes resulting in 147 associations being identified. Overall, the findings summarize what is known from previous systematic reviews, namely that job demands are associated with poorer attitudes and behaviours while resources typically relate to attitudes and behaviours that are beneficial both for employers and individual employees. However, for gender and occupation, considerably less is known. Importantly, however, reports of gender specific associations suggest that, overall, linkages between psychosocial factors and job attitudes and behaviours hold for both women and men.

Limitations: The restriction to the past 10 years.

Research/Practical Implications: The meta-review adds to understanding consequences of psychosocial factors at work and points up future research needs.

Originality/Value: The broad approach using a meta-review allows for integrating research on several outcomes.
