Sawang, Sukanlaya & Murray, Jennifer (2005) Does occupational stress really matter? A study of psychological climate and stress on job satisfaction in Thailand. In Proceedings of the 19th Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference : Engaging the multiple contexts of management, Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management, Rydges Lakeside Hotel, Canberra.
This study explored the prediction of psychological climate and stresses on job satisfaction in non U.S. setting. A total of 450 surveys were sent to 11 organisations in Thailand and employees were asked to fill out the survey. The first hypothesis that positive psychological climate dimensions predicted lower level of stresses among Thai employees was partially accepted. Further regression analysis tested second hypothesis that positive psychological climate dimensions and low level of stresses predict job satisfaction among Thai employees. Contrary to expectation, only stress variables predicted job satisfaction. Thai culture influence was discussed.
