Summary

This article provides a meta-analytic synthesis of longitudinal studies leveraging the job-demands-resources (JD-R) model. The study finds support for the JD-R model, with high quality studies and models with reciprocal assumptions between job characteristics and well-being returning superior fit indices. The article concludes that the JD-R model successfully generalizes to a broad array of organizations, though greater clarity is needed to better understand reciprocal relationships and differential relationships between challenging and hindering job demands with wellbeing and engagement.
