Introduction to multilevel modeling for diary data

by Dr. Christine Syrek (Trier University, Germany)

Diary data are gaining more popularity in occupational health psychology, work and organizational research. Diary data is clustered within persons and thus violates the assumption of independence. We therefore need methods that go beyond ordinary statistical methods: multilevel modeling. In this workshop, I will define the key concepts of multilevel modeling, look at equation conventions, and then develop a complete multilevel model by following Bliese and Ployhart’s five step approach. I will apply a hierarchical data analyses strategy to model time, incorporate level-1 predictors with fixed and random coefficients and analyze level-2 predictors. R will be used for all examples. Prior knowledge is not required.

The dark, the bright, and the shimmering side of leadership
by Dr. Christine Syrek (Trier University, Germany)

Basically every work-related outcome variable is related to leadership. Speaking in the terms of stress psychology, leadership can be seen as a resource or a stressor. Considering the dark side, research on destructive leadership highlights the consequences of leaders acting in an illegitimate, destructive or immoral way. Particularly two questions deserve attention: Why do leaders behave in a destructive manner? And what influence do followers have on a destructive leader? Looking at the bright side, the area of leadership research indicates that transformational leadership enhances employees’ job satisfaction, commitment, well-being, health, performance. The basic question of interest is: Which are the underlying mechanisms that lead to these positive outcomes (i.e. how do they do it)? Yet, the picture of leadership is not complete when we look at the dark and the bright side. We will therefore explore the iridescent, shimmering side that has received some attention but remains largely unexplored.

New ways of working and their implications for employee well-being

by Prof. Sabine Geurts (Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands)

Boundaryless work and self-scheduling are two relatively new ways of working, both characterized by high levels of employee work time control. Ideally, these new ways of working have favorable implications for work-home balance, stress, recovery and job motivation. However, is this 'sunny perspective' substantiated by empirical data, or is a 'gloomy perspective' more justified? In this lecture I will present and discuss the results of two intervention studies, one on boundaryless work and one on self-scheduling.

What is a good night's sleep worth? Exploring the relationship between stress and sleep as well as the role of perseverative cognition

by Michelle van Laethem (Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands)

Occupational health research has shown that stress can be a major cause of sleeping difficulties, which in turn can have a harmful impact on health. Moreover, there are indications that cognitive processes, as for example perseverative cognition (e.g., rumination and worry), are key mediating factors in the association between (work) stress and poor sleep quality. In this presentation, research on the relations between (work-related) stress, sleep, and perseverative cognition are presented and implications discussed.
