Resumen

VILJOEN, Joshua P.  y  ROTHMANN, Sebastiaan. Occupational stress, ill health and organisational commitment of employees at a university of technology. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2009, vol.35, n.1, pp. 67-77. ISSN 0258-5200.

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between occupational stress, ill health and organisational commitment. A survey design was used. The sample (N=353) consisted of academic (n=132) and support staff (n=221) at a university of technology. The Organizational Stress Screening Tool (ASSET) and a biographical questionnaire were administered. The results showed that different organisational stressors contributed significantly to ill health and low organisational commitment. Stress about job security contributed to both physical and psychological ill health, whereas overload and job aspects contributed to psychological ill health. Stress about control and resources contributed to low organisational commitment. Low individual commitment to the organisation was predicted by five stressors, namely work-life balance, overload, control, job aspects and pay.

Palabras clave : occupational stress; organisational commitment; ill health; work overload; work-life balance.
