ALVES, Valdenis de Deus; NEIVA, Elaine Rabelo  and  PAZ, Maria das Graças Torres da. Power configurations, organizational support and personal well-being in a public organization. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.2, pp. 159-169. ISSN 1982-1247.

The literature on well-being at work has demanded investigations on the predictors of this phenomenon. Therefore, the present study aimed at: 1) describing the configuration of an organization's power, the perception of organizational support and the well-being in a public organizational context; 2) evaluating the influence of demographic and functional variables on the employee's well-being in organizations; and 3) evaluating the effect of organizational characteristics of power and support on the personal well-being of employees. The study used the organizational power configuration scale, perceived organizational support scale and personal well-being in organizations scale. The three scales were applied individually to the random sample, stratified by area and composed of 321 employees of a public company. The missionary configuration, the work overload, the management style, the social support, the material support and the possibility of career advancement were predictors of well-being.
