AN ORGANIZATIONAL EXPLORATION IN THE APPEARANCE OF NEGATIVE HEALTH PERCEPTION AMONG EDUCATORS: ESTABLISHING PROTECTIVE POLICIES WITHIN LEARNING CENTERS

Introduction:
Today concern in understanding the mechanisms that may lead to warning signs of health deterioration among teaching professionals has moved recent research to examine potential triggers for its emergence in education service collectives. The societal significance of this predicament turns legitimate not only for its impact on global diffusion of knowledge but also for its adverse repercussions on economy and family stability. It is imperative, thus, to delve further into the study of those constituents that might negatively contribute to this alarming trend and give -at the same time- evidences for the implementations of promising measures to prevent and alleviate this social dilemma.

Methodology:
Owing to their proven influence on employee’s psychological and physical health, Workplace bullying, job dissatisfaction, and deteriorated organizational conditions found the basis for the global model here proposed -one variable and two constructs-. Indeed, the influence of these three constituents on labor healthiness has certainly been examined but predominantly in an independent manner. The methodology utilized is based on partial least squares approach. A sample population of 2,328 teaching professionals is mined from the 5th European Working Conditions Survey-2010 for the research.

Objective:
On these grounds, the present research proposes a set of hypotheses to conjointly examine latent correlations between Workplace Bullying, Job Dissatisfaction, and Deteriorated Working Conditions in the appearance of Poor Health Perception among teaching professionals. The purpose of this work is to examine, adopting subject’s individual perspective, specific variables that might trigger negative health perception among teaching professionals, contributing to the body of research that fosters the implementation of preventive measures within educational institutions.

Results:
Results suggest that the odds for a teaching professional to label him/herself as bearing negative workplace health perception escalate when there is a conditioned correlation -as direct antecedents/predictors- between this circumstance and both bullying and deteriorated working conditions. Additionally, these straight associations seem to indirectly influence on subject’s health perception via job dissatisfaction as mediating construct.

Conclusion:
This paper proposes that a guided control on factors associated to the emergence of work-related harassment, job discontent, and inadequate occupational conditions could significantly lessen adverse health self-perception among educators.
Implications: Its proposition could assist those responsible for the internal coordination of human resources in establishing internal policies within learning centers, facilitating custom support, harmonious relationships, and balanced environments.
