    Faisal Mahmood1, Maria Saleem1, Antonio Ariza-Montes2, Heesup Han3,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.6, pp. 917-932, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.019452

    Abstract This research aims to explore the intricate nature of the association between green attitudes and well-being in the workplace. Based on the basic human value theory, this study attempted to unearth the moderating effects of its two main bipolar segments, namely self-transcendence-self-enhancement and openness to change-conservation. A quantitative approach with a sample of 1,532 hospitality employees from 35 European countries was used. We found that a green attitude contributes to deriving employee well-being. Further, we found empirical support for the influence of human values, in the sense that this relationship is reinforced among the workers who are more altruistic and… More >

    Zeynab Bahrami1, Atena Heidari1,*, Jacquelyn Cranney2

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.24, No.6, pp. 869-882, 2022, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2022.018954

    Abstract Previous research suggests that planning interventions lead to increased goal attainment, while other research suggests that goal attainment leads to increased well-being. This research integrates these two sets of research findings by investigating the effectiveness of one goal planning intervention, the SMART goal program, on goal attainment, and thus need satisfaction and well-being, in university students. An experimental design across a one-week period was employed to test whether participants in the experimental group, who received the SMART goal instructions, better obtained their goal in comparison to control group participants who did not receive those specific instructions.

Using the structural equation modeling and moderated mediating mechanism analysis, the results show that: (1) the satisfaction of social and economic public service significantly and… More >
