Abstract

Organizational Health (OH) is a concept that has been developed to reflect the effectiveness of an organization in various environments and how the organization reacts to “changes in circumstances”. The purpose of this study is two‐fold. First, it is to determine whether a linear relationship exists between stress and each of the following variables: job satisfaction, wellbeing, and performance. Second, it seeks to determine if OH mediates these relationships. Results of the study highlighted the relationship between stress and wellbeing. Although OH did not mediate any of the three relationships mentioned above, OH was found to have a direct relationship with job satisfaction, wellbeing and college performance. Specifically, the study emphasized the importance of a healthy management environment for job satisfaction and teacher wellbeing (less wornout).
