Extension of the Job Demands−Resources Model; Bridging Occupational Health Psychology, Occupational Medicine, and Human Resources Management

The proposed research program seeks to extend the Job Demands Resources (JD−R model), a recently developed and increasingly used model in work and organizational psychology to explain the antecedents of negative (burnout) and positive (work engagement) aspects of employee well−being. Three extension are envisioned: (1) integrating positive (charismatic) and negative (destructive) leadership into the model; (2) including employee learning and development as an additional outcome; and (3) applying the JD−R at the aggregated team level. These extensions open the way for interdisciplinary research with occupational medicine (burnout), labor pedagogy (employee learning) and human resources management (leadership).
