Organizacinio streso veiksnių vertinimas statutinėje organizacijoje
Researchers have long recognized that traumatic events of statutory organization officers are not the only source of stress. Growing body of research suggests that job context (or organizational) stressors are of greater concern and studies have found that workload or unfair work practices have an important impact on psychological and physical health outcomes for police officers. The problem of organizational stress in statutory organizations, though still quite new in Lithuania, is certainly among those to be taken into consideration by management, as high level of stress experienced at work is directly related to the issues of employees‘ motivation, work efficiency, job satisfaction, etc. The sample used in this study comprised of 364 officers from one of Lithuania statutory organizations. The research itself was based on the use of OSI („Occupational Stress Indicator“, Evers, Frese, Cooper 2000) questionnaire. It was predicted: (1) that there was a correlation among occupational stressors, overall job satisfaction and satisfaction with pay, (2) that there were differences in males and females perception of stressfulness of job specific issues, (3) that there was a correlation among occupational stressors and psychological and physical health. The statistical analysis of results show that the experience of work stress caused by organizational factors is directly related both to work satisfaction and officers‘ self-feelings at work. The more stress officers‘ experience, the less satisfaction they feel and the worse they assess their psychological and physical health. The determined male and female differences in stress show that women feel more stress at work than men do.
