Abstract

This paper reports an empirical study in which perceived organizational support is considered as a social resource in a stress model conceived within the perspective of Conservation of Resources theory. A study conducted among 181 employees and their supervisors reveals that role stressors impact work outcomes through perceptions of anticipated or actual resource loss and lack of resource gains. Moreover, perceived organizational support exerts a moderating effect in the relationships between resource loss and lack of resource gains and emotional exhaustion, affective commitment, and job performance. We discuss the implications of these findings for our understanding of the psychological mechanisms associated with perceived organizational support.
