This paper reports a study of ethnicity and work-related stress that takes the Demands-Resources-Individual-Effects (DRIVE) model (Mark & Smith, 2008) as a framework of reference. The model combines individual differences, job characteristics, ethnicity dimensions and appraisals as independent variables in the prediction of psychophysical health outcomes and it was applied in a sample of 900 workers, differing in ethnicity, in Southern Italy. Results confirmed the hypotheses predicted by the suggested model, showed different profiles of associations and the main effects of the independent variables on the psychophysical health outcomes. The importance of including ethnicity dimensions in work-related stress research requires further investigation.

Abstract

This paper reports a study of ethnicity and work-related stress that takes the Demands-Resources-Individual-Effects (DRIVE) model (Mark & Smith, 2008) as a framework of reference. The model combines individual differences, job characteristics, ethnicity dimensions and appraisals as independent variables in the prediction of psychophysical health outcomes and it was applied in a sample of 900 workers, differing in ethnicity, in Southern Italy. Results confirmed the hypotheses predicted by the suggested model, showed different profiles of associations and the main effects of the independent variables on the psychophysical health outcomes. The importance of including ethnicity dimensions in work-related stress research requires further investigation.
