How to prevent people from losing hope in their jobs

Previously I have discussed the connection between the way work is organized and positive psychological capital (self-efficacy, resilience, optimism and hope). Psychological capital is linked to performance, which has been demonstrated in various studies. (Newman, 2014).

Together with de Vliegtuigfabriek, we performed an experiment to further explore the connection between the two topics. We found that people in active jobs (high on demands and high on autonomy) maintain a positive psychological capital during work, while people in high strain jobs (high demands and low autonomy) end up feeling drained.
