Abstract
Over the past 30 years, conservation of resources (COR) theory has become one of the most widely cited theories in organizational psychology and organizational behavior. COR theory has been adopted across the many areas of the stress spectrum, from burnout to traumatic stress. Further attesting to the theory's centrality, COR theory is largely the basis for the more work-specific leading theory of organizational stress, namely the job demands-resources model. One of the major advantages of COR theory is its ability to make a wide range of specific hypotheses that are much broader than those offered by theories that focus on a single central resource, such as control, or that speak about resources in general. In this article, we will revisit the principles and corollaries of COR theory that inform those more specific hypotheses and will review research in organizational behavior that has relied on the theory.

The findings of Study 1 show that negative shocks resulted in a psychological contract violation, high organizational cynicism, and turnover intention. Study 2 further examined the moderating roles of traditionality and organizational embeddedness. Negative shocks triggered less organizational c...

Abstract Coal mining is one of the most dangerous occupations in China despite the enforcement of stringent industry regulations and investments in modern safety equipment. In recent years, the majority of accidents in coal mining have been attributed to human errors. This study offers new insights into combatting coal mining accidents by focusing on ‘soft’ human factors from the perspective of coal miners. We draw from positive psychology to argue that hope and team reflexivity play critical ro...
