Abstract [en]

Purpose: This systematic meta-review uses the job demands-resources (JD-R) model to investigate the associations between various psychosocial factors at work and a range of health-related outcomes. Specifically, this study investigated how job demands and resources are linked to health-related outcomes such as depressive symptoms, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal complaints and whether the linkages varied between genders and occupations.

Design/Methodology: This meta-review focuses on meta-analyses and systematic literature reviews published during the past 10 years. These secondary studies were identified through combined searches in different international databases. Search terms were selected to identify a range of psychosocial factors and to retrieve published journal articles, and systematic reports linking such factors to health-related outcomes.

Results: In total, 14 job demands and 7 job resources were identified. Lining these to outcomes resulted in the identification of 273 potential associations. Taken together, the findings show what is known from previous research, namely that job demands are related to poorer health. As expected resources typically relate to better health outcomes that are beneficial for organizations and individual employees. Separating findings for women and men suggest that the overall linkages between psychosocial factors and health-related outcomes hold for both women and men. However, less is know regarding occupational variations.

Limitations: A meta-review restricts specificity and detail.

Research/Practical Implications: Adds to the systematic knowledge of health-related consequences of psychosocial factors at work, for research as well as practice.

Originality/Value: The use of a meta-approach that discusses issues relating to gender and occupation.
