Abstract

The current study investigated the interrelationships across perceptions of violence prevention climate and several workplace strain variables (i.e., job satisfaction, turnover intentions, physical symptoms of strain, and burnout). By adopting a social exchange framework, trust was identified as a potential mediator of the relationships between the focal variables. One hundred and eight employees participated in the cross-sectional design by completing a self-report survey. Correlational analyses revealed support for significant associations between perceptions of violence prevention climate and the workplace strain variables. Moreover, mediational analyses revealed that trust fully mediated the relationships between perceptions of violence prevention climate and job satisfaction, turnover intentions, physical symptoms of strain, and burnout. Based on the results of the current investigation, perceptions of violence prevention climate are associated with employee well-being and organizational attitudes. Additionally, trust may be one potential mechanism that underlies the focal relationships. The results from the current investigation can inform future organizational behavior. Supervisors should be concerned and aware of the perceived violence prevention climate and associated levels of trust among incumbent employees.
