Assesment and prediction of work engagement in a health volun-teers sample: the role of Sense of Coherence and Cognitive Reap-praisal
AbstractA salutogenic perspective within organizations is becoming more important. Faced with the study of burnout, and to some extent, thanks to its, has emerged the concept work engagement. This study aims to determine the level of engagement of volunteers from an association that serves people with cancer and their families, and show some factors that could explain it, in particular, cognitive reappraisal and sense of coherence. We also want to analyze the way in which cognitive and emotional factors related to explain this relationship within the organization. The sample consists of 136 volunteers. Descriptive analysis, correlation analysis, regression analysis and analysis of indirect effects were conducted using the statistical procedure bootstrapping. The results show that cognitive reappraisal has a direct effect on the variance of engagement. The sense of coherence, besides having a direct effect, have a mediating role between the two variables. We discuss the implications of the results to promote the work engagement of volunteers.
