Predictors of wellbeing experienced by Australian police officers
Noblet, Andrew, Rodwell, John, Deeble, M. and Botten, J. 2006, Predictors of wellbeing experienced by Australian police officers, in ANZAM 2006 : Management: Pragmatism, Philosophy, Priorities : Proceedings of the 20th Conference of the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management, ANZAM, Lindfield, N.S.W., pp. 1-17.
The aim of this study was to assess the ability of the Demand-Control-Support (DCS) model as well as the psychological contract model (PCM) to predict the wellbeing experienced by 2,566 Australian police officers. While the level of explained variance attributed to the PCM was substantially less than the DCS, measures of contract breach and organisational fairness still captured significant portions of intrinsic and extrinsic job satisfaction. Overall, the results of this study suggest that both the DCS and the PCM should figure prominently in strategies aimed at reducing or preventing police stress.
