the impact of Stress management programs on employee wellbeing and productivity.

the impact of Stress management programs on employee wellbeing and productivity. • Write a description of the impact of Stress management programs on employee wellbeing and productivity.
• You need to write the definition of Stress and what are stress management programs.
• Provide a rational why stress management programs could effect the employee wellbeing and productivity. Theoretical Review (approx 450 words) • Summarise what previous researchers have hypothesised with regard to this topic. (That is, you need to summarise what arguments researchers have made regarding how and whystress management programs should be related employee wellbeing and productivity). In doing so, you need to make it clear whether all researchers agree, or whether (and how) they disagree. • Note that the emphasis in this section is on theoretical arguments that researchers have made rather than actual “theories” (e.g., goal setting theory, social learning theory). Where relevant, refer to actual theories (even those that are indirectly related to your topic if useful). • Note that given that this section is a theoretical rather than an empirical review, restrict this section to a review of theories and theoretical arguments and do *not* refer to the results of specific studies. Theoretical arguments can be found in pure theoretical papers, or the introduction/discussion sections of empirical papers. They summarise HOW two things are expected to be related (e.g., positively or negatively) and WHY that relationship is expected. Empirical Review (approx 450 words) • summarise what the results of the studies say.
• You need to map these results back to your theoretical review – that is, are the findings consistent with the theoretical arguments put forth by researchers? If not, how are they inconsistent?
• Ensure that your review is comprehensive.
? Ensure that your review is structured effectively (e.g., tell the readers a story about the findings regarding this topic by integrating the findings from the different papers you have read, and using a logical structure to organise the information according to similarities/dissimilarities.
Research Gaps & Recommendations for Future Research(approx 300 words) • After reviewing what researchers have hypothesised about your topic and what the findings are, you need to highlight the gaps that exist in the literature – i.e., what are the problems with past research that prevent a full understanding of the impact of your chosen HRM technique on this particularly outcome?
• There are three main types of research gaps:
o Methodological gaps =No research has used a particular methodology that is thought to be important for moving the field forward. For example, there have been many tests of the link between Stress management programs and job satisfaction, but all of these tests examined the relationship on the same day – no research has examined the relationship longitudinally, so it is unknown whether or not these programs have a lasting effect.
o Empirical gaps =No research has tested a particular relationship (either at all, or in a particular sample/context etc). For example,it has been assumed that pay-for-performance systems enhance organisational profit but no researcher has actually tested it (so there are no empirical findings relating to the hypothesis); or all tests of the link between on-line training and training performance have been tested with students rather than in the field (so the existing empirical findings only relate to one type of sample).
o Theoretical gaps =No researcher has put forth an argument for how and/or why a particular relationship should exist. For example,although researchers have long discussed how and why pay-for-performance systems enhance individual job performance, no researchers have considered how and why this relationship might depend on the type of person.
• You need to highlight at least two research gaps (that cover at least two types of research gaps)
• In conjunction with the research gaps you highlight, you need to offer suggestions for future research that will address these gaps. Conclusion (approx 100 words) • You need to summarise what is known about your chosen topic and what is not known (i.e., what gaps exist in the literature/what still needs to be investigated).
You also need to summarise why existing knowledge on this topic is important (for theory and/or practice) and why it is important to conduct future study
