Abstract

Job stress is becoming one of the most prevalent health issues nowadays, especially for the Greater China regions. These regions are undergoing fundamental transformations of industrial structures, as well as rapid social modernization in both work and lifestyles. Moreover, with the globalization of the world economy and Mainland China joining the World Trade Organization (WTO), many multinational companies are attracted to put more investments in these regions. In the spirit of free competition, employees in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan are becoming more exposed to stressful Western and industrialized work situations. Recently, scholars and practitioners call for more stress research in developing countries. Therefore, Greater China offers one of the most important contexts for job stress research.
