Abstract

The concept of a resilient workforce is of growing interest in a changing and economically challenging context. This study
aimed to empirically test the interaction between psychological capital (PsyCap) authentic leadership (AL) and organisational identification (OID) as a model for resilience in the workplace. Method: A questionnaire survey assessed psychological capital, authentic leadership, organisational identification, and job stress in 498 staff working in emotional-labour-intensive roles, delivering health and social care services in the community as part of the growing voluntary sector infrastructure. Findings showed that psychological capital and organisational identification mediated the relationship between authentic leadership and job stress.
