The study aims to develop scales of coping strategies frequently used by Hong Kong employees; and to test the direct and moderating effects of coping strategies between stressors and work well‐being. First, 40 employees were interviewed with an open‐ended approach and 17 items were generated. In a survey with 183 employees, a factor analysis of the developed items revealed 4 coping scales (by deleting 2 items): relaxation, rational/cognitive thinking, social support, and behavioral means. The results show that rational/cognitive coping related positively with job satisfaction but negatively with physical symptoms, and all of the coping scales were significant stress moderators.
