El pasado 26 de Agosto de 2015, en las dependencias del Departamento de Administración, Facultad de Economía y Negocios, Universidad de Chile, Lorena Pérez Floriano, Académica del Departamento de Estudios Sociales, Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF), México, presentó a los profesores del Departamento de Administración, FEN UChile, y a profesores pertenecientes a  otras casas de estudios uno de sus últimos estudios, denominado “Close call: The effects of risk, injury, and strain on job performance among Mexican police officers”.
 
Este seminario hablaba acerca de: We examined the role of perceived job-related violence and health, and the experience of a violent job injury in the line of duty on work strain, job attitudes, and job performance using a sample of 353 Mexican border-city police officers. We applied theory on work stress, risk analysis, and death awareness, taking into account the occupational and national attributes of the context: A setting where workers face dangers and risks that threaten their health, well-being, and life, and a police culture that glorifies danger, courage, and toughness. The results showed that job-related health risks and the experience of a violent job injury were positively associated with work stress. Job-related violence risk perceptions were not associated with work stress, but they had a direct association with job attitudes. Further, work stress had a negative association with job performance, which was mediated by job attitudes, as well as a positive direct association with job performance. We discuss the study’s implications and the notion that work stress has both positive and negative effect on performance, including implications that are applicable to the police and other dangerous occupations, as well as implications that generalize to other contexts.
