Wei Fan, Zhe-jiang YANG, Xin YANG

Abstract


To date, since health problems are becoming critical to human beings all over the world, workplace health promotion (WHP) has gained more and more attention. However, few studies have tested its effects on employees’ work-related behaviors such as job satisfaction, organizational commitment; especially, few relative studies have been found done in the context of Chinese organizations. In this research, the influence of employees’ attitude towards their organization’s workplace health policies on their organizational commitment and job satisfaction were examined in a China-based company with data collected from 123 workers and managers. The main hypotheses were that employees’ attitude towards WHP were associated with (a) their job satisfaction, (b) and organizational commitment. Support was obtained for each hypothesis. Employees’ attitudes towards workplace health policies were both positively related to their job satisfaction and organizational commitment. However, the hypothesis that employees’ job levels related to their attitudes was not tested in this study. At last, implications and suggestions were given regarding developing workplace health policies in Chinese organizations in this research.
