October 9, 2017
David Mayer, Chen Zhang, and Eun Bit Hwang’s new research was discussed in “Relax or learn? Coping with stress at work” on Psych.org. This work shows that shows on-the-job learning helps curb counterproductive behavior and stress. “When it comes to addressing negative emotions and actions in stressful work environments, building positive resources by learning something new at work could be more useful than relaxing,” Zhang said.
Mayer is a core faculty member at the Center for Positive Organizations and an associate professor at Michigan Ross. His research focuses on how organizations can create environments that promote ethical behavior.
